The first beta version of the Android app for Tablet is ready for testing.

This is optimised for Tablets ie horizontal orientation. It has  mostly the same functionality of the iPhone app

The .apk file is attached as a zip archive. To install, unzip to an apk file, copy to your device and tap the icon.

AWESOME! Android is the only tablet OS that supports OpenVPN (the only reliable VPN protocol IMO) without silly jailbreakings etc. So now I don't need a PC to see Comfort status!!! :D:D:D:D

You should be able to install in on a phone but the orientation is horizontal and it may be too small

If you have one of the phones with a larger screens it may be not too bad

We wil be working on a phone version soon

The current version of the app is not able to work on Android OS 3 and above due to a change in the way they handled the communications. A new version shall be released soon

Long awaited! It's great to be able to offer this as an option to the iPhone APP.

Hi
I am using HTC Desire with Android 2.2.2
After tring to open the file, system says:
"There is a problem parsing the package".
I dont mind the horizontal look and the the screen is quite big, so it should not be a problem, but I am not able to install the programm.

Comfort Android App beta version 1.6 is ready for testing. Please download from the 1st post in this topic.

This now works for Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and above and also should work on phones (horizontal only) as well as tablets.

Hi Slychiu!!

Love it!! Looking forward to getting rid of my iphone soon i hope :-)

Anyway, have it installed on an acer tablet, and realising it is beta, just wanted to raise a few things i've noticed, or perhaps missed :-)

1) Counter values not displaying. I noticed this as I have my temp from scs's and dim level from velbus dimmers set to display, and the android app simply shows these as green/on
2) Security status leds not displaying. The status of the security system is not displaying, ie, the green led/display for off/arm/ac/msg do not light up on the android screen
3) Camera! On my phone app, I have camera working, but for some reason, it is not working on the android app! The format I enter my camera ip address is to ensure username and pwd also are entered, so it is as follows "http://username:pwd@192.168.100.250:8088/videostream.cgi

the above works on my iphone/ipad setup, but the android app says "authorisation required"

4) For empty cameras (ie ones that i have not configured), there is a screan comes up for "calistra", not sure where this came from , but can it be removed ?

Regards,
Eamon

Thanks for the feedback
We should fix these problems in the next version
For the camera, in order to work, it has to work on the browser. can you type in the URL on the built in browser and see f you can see  the images. The Android browser has problems with many cameras. Other browsers like Firefox, Opera, and Chrome work better. Unlike iOS, you can change the default browser on the andoird phone or tablet.

I just tried it on my HTC Desire and it doesn't install.

Testing it on a friend's Galaxy Note works perfectly. Just some comments:

1. There is no 'Exit' button, we had to kill the app from the Task Manager.

2. Working with ComfortClient I am used to Closed zones being Green and Open zones being Red. With the Andoid App it is the opposite. Red to me means 'Open', 'Warning', 'Panic' etc... Green means all is well.

Regards,
Ingo

The same as Tan121 posted on 30 June. Something about parsing the file.
