Thanks for the recommendation, Thxtheater. I have just installed Roomie Agent in my home environment to become more familiar with it prior to taking it to my friends' home. In both my home and my friends', there are two people with multiple iOS devices running Roomie in multiple Rooms of the house simultaneously.
Once you have Roomie Agent running in the background (or any occurrence of the iOS Roomie app, I understand), if you make changes on your Roomie app in the Living Room for example, another person's open Roomie app actually changes, live, to that same control page, unless, it seems, the second person's Roomie is currently working in a different Room, say the Bedroom.
I seem to have been able to reliably reproduce this problem: in the above scenario, the Roomie device in the Bedroom walks out of the bedroom into the Living Room and that user changes Rooms to Living Room, none of those commands are responded to.
In a busy household, with two people running Roomie on multiple iOS devices in four different Roomie Rooms, still trying to determine if Roomie Agent is net positive. I've searched here and haven't found a lot of information... any one have any more experiences or tips regarding Roomie Agent environment?
