The setup instructions to make the first connection to the Hub did not give me the correct results. I finally made the connection by resetting the Hub using the little reset bottom in the back of the unit. It asked me to setup my home Wifi and done.

I have tried with both an iPhone 5s on iOS8 beta3 and an iPad Mini on iOS 7.This is the most frustrating hardware setup I’ve encountered. I’d hesitate to say that this hub is worth the .99 I got it for and I’m upset that I spent hundreds on new door hardware in anticipation of the…
