I love the idea of the product, but it's been the most disappointing KS I've backed so far.

RE: the DOT LED light
I've been unable to make any of my dots work as expected.
I have three, and was able to update them from V1 to V2. During the process the LED illuminated and the firmware revision was updated. I can also see them using the nRF app, so they appear to be functioning at that level. But that's the only interaction I've been able to get from any of them.
I set one to "roommate mode" where it's LED should illuminate when I'm (or my phone) is near it. I presume the "specified user" is related to the supplied email. Well, I set the email in the app the email on my phone - and there is no response.
I'm pretty sure I've set this up correctly, so I guess I'm added to the list of people whose dots only work to update the firmware in them.
If, as noted (about a month ago) it, that “Proximity with your own email account may be causing a bug”, then the iota/dot is useless. If it can’t determine accurately if it’s me (or my phone) that’s near it, what’s the point?
