Is HomeControl compatible with ZigBee 3.0?

I have ZigBee 3.0 compatible lamp and i might buy your app if it is compatible with it.

Thanks

ZigBee is a wireless standard that many IoT devices use to create a network. Devices such as Philips Hue and Belkin WeMo use this, but have entirely separate APIs for sending commands. This app uses the APIs provided by Philips Hue, Belkin Wemo, TP-Link, and iHome. Each of these brands, and some of the separate models within any particular brand, is coded as its own unique class. So, at this time, only the advertised device types will work. It is not a generic ZigBee hub. It is possible that more types of devices will be included in future updates, but there is no ETA on that currently.

Is it possible to download your app for free and test it for few days?

You can request a refund through Apple if it doesn't work for you. If your lamp is not from a supported brand, it probably will not work. If it's a Philips Hue lamp, there should be no issues.
