Well said, ridreams. Still in a holding pattern waiting for someone at Securifi to speak.

The upcoming update is a big one. Most of the beta testers are very pleased with it. The invitation for beta testers is still open as long as you don't work for our competitors. We expect to send out updates once in 3 months give or take.

I think I am done with consumer grade stuff period. Going to move to the enterprise lite stuff and go to Ubiquiti. They have flaked on their customers previously, but definitely have been more communicative about it and seem to be pushing hard right now.

I want to like the Almond+, but I can't even get the DMZ to work properly (my PS4 still shows NAT type 2)... I'll just shelve it for now and hope that they get it together later.

Appreciate the information @Ashok!  However, any time frame on when that update will be?

@Ashok - Did you say product updates once every 3 months?  That would be good as a maintenance schedule for a complete, full-featured and stable product.   Almond+ is still missing tons of features and feels kind of beta.   Delivering missing features every 3 months doesn't sound right at all.   So, would beta tester group be the only mechanism to receive product updates more frequently?

@ Andy,

I could understand what you are trying to say, however, as mentioned earlier the next update is going to have good number of new features. Yes, for now users can get the Beta firmware only through Beta group. However, If you are comfortable in using the Beta firmware then you can get them by signing the NDA and filling the basic details.

Just an update, we already released two Beta firmwares and more are yet to be released..

@ smitch019,

We just released second Beta firmware today and hopefully, we would be releasing one more soon and depending upon the bug fixes, it would be released to everyone.

" Big update coming" " Lots of new features " . These are the exact type of non-announcements that I was referring to. No roadmap or hint at what direction Securifi has decided to go , other than to keep its customers completely in the dark.

As others have said quarterly updates would be fine if things were working and just pushing minor stability or security updates. However giving the current state we should be getting weekly or at least biweekly updates.  No, lets pile up all the problems then push out one BIG fix. This way we won't actually know which one of the patches is causing the problem when something doesn't work.  Then again we don't know if this " big update" is even addressing all of the problems we are having or if it is a new UI, new app, just adding more compatible devices. 

With all of the past issues with firmware updates and how many of us had to roll back a release or two to get things (relatively) stable. I really have to question the rationale that led to the decision to hold back any fixes for 3 months then push out one big update. Not give your customers even a hint of what solutions they might expect to see in the promised "big update"

Exactly
I can tell you this
i bought and installed the Onhub and my oh my my Issues went away.
my dead spots are better (and my Almond+ and Onhub were exactly in the same place)
My speeds are very consistent and  while i've only had this thing for 3 days. no reboot. Almond+ Starts having issues weekly. So i've yet to hit the mark but kudos to Google . this thing is good.

I too just bought a Google On-Hub.  However, it replaced my router on the third floor of my house.  I had better signal strength on the main floor of my house from the On-Hub then I did from the Almond+ which was sitting in the middle of the first floor (it was a bridge to the router on the third floor).  That's just wrong...

... and I haven't dropped the signal on my wife and son using the on-Hub, both using iPhone 6's... I had to reboot daily for the Almond+ to keep a signal on their iPhones.

I really want the Almond+ to work... but it's just unreliable right now.  Even the home automation stuff, every now and then it would just stop reporting that my doors were opening and closing via Android notifications.

Looking forward to the "big update"... but sadly, I held my breath as long as I could, and then bought the on-Hub to replace it.  Guess it'll be just for my tinkering now...

So I got one of these a year ago as a Beta Backer whatever.  There was a note saying the features I wanted were not complete and an update would be available.  I just plugged it back in and checked for updates and there are none?  The website says it is a range extender or wireless bridge.  Mine does none of that >:(

@ Gramps,

You might have got an old firmware on the Almond+, which may not allow us to update software directly through LCD UI. Hence, you may have to update the firmware to R080 through Web UI and there onwards, software update would work directly from the LCD UI. Once the software is updated, you could setup the Almond+ in Range Extender mode with out any concerns.

Three months tomorrow. I want someone to admit this product wasn't ready when marketed. Wow.
