Any assistance/help/guidance for resolving the iPhone app notification issue when the door is locked and unlocked via Sesame iPhone App will be much appreciated.



Thanks so much for the detailed issue report! It’s a thing of beauty and it’d definitely make our jobs a lot easier if everyone reported issues this way. :wink: Thanks for including all relevant information so we can determine the issue!

The reason you’re not receiving notifications for Scenarios 3&4 is because notifications are NOT triggered for actions taken from your own account. If you are using your own Sesame account to lock/unlock Sesame on iPhone and Apple Watch, no notifications will be triggered. However, if a guest or manager locks/unlocks Sesame from iPhone or Apple Watch, you will receive notifications for actions they took. Please let us know if guest/manager notifications are not showing up for you so we can check it out.

Hope our explanation helps, and please let us know if you have any further questions for us! - CANDY HOUSE



OMG, what a royal customer.
Thanks for helping us so much.
@Phil, your iOS app is still 1.37(2) on App Store.
Please join our Apple TestFlight Program to enjoy 1.38(16) or later.
The issue has been fixed in the TestFlight version.



I have also stopped getting notifications.
All notifications. Even from manual locking.

Phil is yourself doing this also?

iPhone X also here.



Sorry to hear it! That shouldn’t be happening and we’d be very interested in getting this issue resolved. Can you try toggling the notifications off and back on and let us know if that solves the issue? If you’re still not receiving notifications after doing so, we’ll follow up with our devs and figure out what’s going on. Thanks! - CANDY HOUSE

That did it!
It was definitely on, but toggling it off and on has fixed it. Thanks!
