Now, when we talk about the downsides, the first problem that I experienced with the device is that its Mobile app is slow. It talks around 10 seconds to connect each time just to edit the settings. This kind of freaks me out sometimes. Second thing that irritates me is its bright lights which can’t be turned off. The third thing is that the case of the device is made up of what looks like a flimsy plastic. The design is also mediocre as it pulls air from the back and pushes out of the sides. Given this, it cannot be put next to a wall, thus occupies considerable amount of space.
However, it works perfectly fine when I set it manually at setting 3.
