Problem with app

Before the last update in the app I was able to change what option I wanted to use under "Customize" (Backup-only, Self-Powered, Advanced) & the change would take effect immediately. Now when I make a change it takes a long time to occur. Today going from Backup only to Self-Powered took 30 minutes which ran into the time where my higher energy costs take effect. It's getting to the point where I am afraid to switch from one to another as I don't know if I will be able to switch back. Anyone else having this problem since the app has been updated to version 21.20.6

If you can possibly hard wire it (ethernet) try that. I have read several reports of wifi sometimes lagging on setting swaps, as I mentioned. Mine changes almost instantly (within 30 seconds or so), and has since install but I have it wired with ethernet.

The gateway 1 definitely had reports of "weak" wifi connectivity. Not sure about gateway 2.
