New Arrival Deco App Update w/ Dark Mode, Widgets and Custom IP Reservations
Hey Deco Users!
In case you haven’t noticed, your Deco App has received a few updates recently. Included are some of the most requested features and accessibility tools that were added.
Latest Update for Android and iOS:
Support for Dark Mode
We know this has been one of the number one requests from the community. When first opening your app after the update, you may receive a prompt to configure the theme of the Deco App. Otherwise, the setting may be found in the left sidebar under “App Settings”
Added Menu Option for Dark Mode to Switch Between:
Dark Mode, or
Follow your Phone’s Theme
Give the Dark Mode a Try and Let Our Team Know What You Think of the Dark Mode Design.
Share Wi-Fi Network and Password via QR Code
When viewing your Wi-Fi Settings in the Deco App, the Share Button listed for the Guest and Main Networks will now create a QR code allowing your guests to quickly connect to your network.
This QR allows guests to connect without requiring the user to know or input the network password.
Home Screen Widget for Parental Controls
We know that users like to keep a sharp eye on the activity across their parental control profiles. In the latest update, two widget styles were added to give a brief overview of a profile’s activity without having to open the Deco App.
For all users, the default widget will show the overall usage time of a parental control profile.
HomeShield Pro Users are provided with more in-depth details regarding usage, based on the Online Time Analysis Feature. The Chart Provided will be the same as the chart in the Deco App that is unlocked with HomeShield Pro.
Custom Address Reservation Settings
In the latest update, you no longer have to choose from a list of connected devices when creating an IP Reservation.
It is now possible to manually enter both the MAC address and IP address of the device, before even connecting the device to your network.
Once the widget is placed, you will be prompted to select a Parental Control profile to display on that widget.
If you are not prompted to choose a profile, please tap and hold the widget on your home screen to find the “Edit Widget Option” – Here you can select or change the displayed profile.
In Previous Updates for Android and iOS:
Landscape Mode for Tablets
In the previous update, iPad compatibility for Landscape Mode was added. This feature was previously tested as part of our TestFlight program but let us know if you see any odd behaviors resulting from landscape use. This Feature is now also available to Android Tablets as well.
Voice-Over Screen Reader
Our team has seen the latest requests to make the Deco App more accessible to users. As a first step to improving access to the Deco App, compatibility for Voice-Over Screen Readers was Added. If you use the Voice Reader function on your phone, please let our team know about your experience and if you think something could be improved.
Biometric Login Methods
Probably the Oldest Feature on this List, the Deco App supports both FaceID and Fingerprint Login Methods to secure your Deco App. You can find this setting in your Deco App Settings.
