Yonomi 1.6: TP-Link, Multi-Client Support, Android Wear, and More

A new version of Yonomi is live for iPhone and Android! Yonomi 1.6 brings new device support, better reliability, and a whole host of other improvements to the app.

Head to the App Store or Google Play Store to install Yonomi 1.6 on your devices and check out what’s been added below.

TP-Link Devices Added

One of our most requested integrations, TP-Link support has now been added in Yonomi 1.6! All of TP-Link’s smart plugs, switches, and bulbs are now discoverable in the app.

Since Yonomi makes it simple to link devices from all of your favorite manufacturers, you can easily add a TP-Link bulb or switch to an existing lighting routine or automate an entire room using TP-Link devices (no hub needed!).

Multi-Client Support For Improved Reliability

Probably the biggest change in Yonomi 1.6 is the addition of multi-client support. This means that now all of your mobile devices will work together as a team to decide which is best positioned to run a command—especially those that run locally over WiFi—and improve the reliability of your routines.

Before version 1.6, we only sent commands to a single phone or tablet at a time—usually whichever one you accessed Yonomi on last. What this would look like to you is that some routines wouldn’t run while you were away from home, or they would run differently than the way you had set them up. It wouldn’t matter if you had Yonomi installed on your iPad at home, if your phone was the last device you used it would intercept the commands from our server and break the routine.

Multi-client support will offer BIG reliability improvements for your Yonomi routines, especially those with integrations that require local WiFi access to run properly like Sonos, Belkin Wemo, TP-Link, and others.

To take advantage of these reliability improvements, try installing Yonomi on all of the mobile devices in your home. If you have a tablet that you keep at home, or an old phone that just sits in a drawer, this can serve as an “always on” device that runs your Yonomi routines on your home WiFi while you’re out and about.

Android Wear Is Here

Fans of Android Wear will be happy to know that Yonomi is now available on your favorite smartwatches like the LG Watch STYLE and the Motorola Moto 360.

Just download Yonomi 1.6 from the Google Play Store and access your Yonomi favorites from your wrist and control the entire room with the tap of a finger.

    The multi-client feature sounds like it’ll deal with the my main complaint and the one I’ve seen from most people.

    Hi

    Great to see TP-Link support.

    Is there any way to add a pause/delay step to a routine which could be added to enable a switched on device to power up?

    • Ted Muething Reply

      Hi John! We don’t currently enable a pause or delay step once a routine starts running but keep an eye out for this feature in future versions. – Ted
