Release 5.5 – Important Notes

Install Assist Keeps Getting Better and Faster

Clare continues to enhance the Install Assist App to make it simpler to add devices without a laptop or network connection. It is so easy to add devices using the Install Assist App, that we are urging experienced Fusion programmers to use Install Assist for initial setup of all compatible devices. It is substantially FASTER to pair devices in Install Assist than build in Fusion. The recent 5.5 release adds the ability to pair and set up Nest and Honeywell Lyric thermostats within the Install Assist and ClareHome Apps only.  Once these devices are added, Fusion can be used for configuring scenes, rules and troubleshooting.
