"that would only work when used through the prescribed app"

I'm refusing to buy anything requiring an "app" to be used - as the app poses an upper limit to the device lifespan. From some devices I do expect they work for years, not until the next update of iOS or Android borks the app that will be never updated. Nor I want to chase my phone every time I need to control something (when I'm at home the phone is in the studio while I can be elsewhere, I don't live in symbiosis with it), find the app, launch the app, wait for that to become responsive and only then be able to do what I need.
