New app version! v3.7

We are now rolling out version 3.7 of our iOS and Android app. The main new feature is local control. This means that the control signals does not pass through the Telldus Live! cloud to get to TellStick, but instead is sent directly from the app to TellStick. This will make controlling devices a lot faster and it will also work even if the internet connection is down or if there are any issues with the Telldus Live! cloud.

This is a phased rollout, this means that it can take up to one week before you get the new version.

Local control is available for TellStick Net v2 and TellStick ZNet Lite v1/v2 when the phone is on the same network as your TellStick. When local control is available there will be a house icon instead of the cloud icon next to the TellStick. Also when controlling a device, the flashing indicator will be blue instead of orange when the control is done locally.

Unfortunately, we need to drop support for Android version 4.
We're working on adding support for iOS9 to this version but without local control.

Firmware 1.1.0 released for TellStick ZNet v1/v2 and TellStick Net v2

We've now released firmware version 1.1.0 for TellStick ZNet Lite v1/v2 and TellStick Net v2. It has some very important new features and bug fixes.

How do I upgrade the firmware?
TellStick will upgrade to the latest version automatically. It checks for a new version once per day.
If your TellStick has not been upgraded, please just wait. The TellStick will update itself eventually. If you are experiencing any problems with the upgrade, please contact us at  http://support.telldus.com

So what is new in this version?

Plugins for everyone!
The beta for plugins is now available for everyone. Please note that this is still a beta test. There still exists known bugs. Use it on your own risk ;)

Improved support for local control
This firmware includes an improved support for local control which will enable the app to talk directly with TellStick in some cases. This means faster control and the possibility to control your devices even when you do not have an internet connection.

Please note that an internet connection is still required for setup and configuration. The phone must also be connected to the same network as the TellStick.

How do I know if the app uses local control?
The app will show an icon for a house instead of a could if the connection is local.

For developers

Device type
The api calls device/info and devices/list will now report a new value; deviceType. This value will determine what kind of device it is. So its now possible to easier distinguish between an on/off plug and a door/window sensor in the UI.

Telldus and iOS 10

It's that time of year again, we're listening to our favourite music whilst we're testing out iOS 10. We're pleased to say that Telldus Live! mobile works like a charm so we can focus on implementing new features.

We'd love to know what you think of the upcoming releases that Apple announced yesterday. Is there something you'd like us to implement? We'd like Apple watch and today widget support...we're working on that! Opening up Siri is great, but Apple decided to not support home automation commands outside of their homekit system. So we can't fix voice control for your home yet :(

Notice regarding Telldus Live! mobile for iPhone

Tomorrow (24/10) the certificate used to secure the communication between our servers, webpage, 3rd party applications and our mobile applications will expire. The transition to the new certificate will be seamless unless for those of you using our official mobile application Telldus Live! mobile on iPhone. This application has to be updated to continue to work, and we are still waiting for approval in the app store for the new version. We do not know when that will happen.

From later today until then, Telldus Live! mobile will not work. At the moment we suggest that you instead use the 3rd party application  TellEvent, our old app  OtioLive or that you access  live.telldus.com directly from your phone.

We are very sorry for this inconvenience.
