Our team at BuildYourSmartHome is often critical to many Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns, due to the fact that most startups looking for funding don’t have the knoweldge and preparedness of mass-production, among other factors, which can be detrimential to the success of a product on those crowdfunding platforms. However, Teptron manages to use the IndieGoGo platform, as it was intended, to exapnd onto their already successful MOVE product by introduction a Z-Wave version of the device. This removes the factor of worryingly waiting to see whether your funding of a project will actually yield you a finished product, as Teptron have a proven track record and are simply dipping their toes into the Z-Wave market to see whether their product will gain traction.

  1. I recently bought some Teptron Move and its one of the worst purchase for its price per unit. I am frankly fed up with it within a week of installing it. Like you mentioned the developers over promised on the functionality of the app, its only provides basic open and close functionality and from the other comments on the app site its been this way for a while with seemingly no updates as to when the other promised functionality will be available.

    The next two issue I have with it are that it can never seem to open or close to the calibrated positions. The next big issue is that it lost its bluetooth functionality after a week. It doesn’t connect anymore to my phone, no number of reset, power cycle, factory reset, change of batteries, using usb power resolved this issue.

    All I have now is a device that doesn’t do what it was sold to do, no promised functionality and no control from phone with bluetooth which was one of the main reason I was looking at automated blind system. At this stage I couldn’t use the promised functionality on the app even if it was released since bluetooth no longer works. Its basically a pie of garbage.

    I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased. It’s essentially a fake product. The entire automation piece of functionality is simply unavailable.
