Works great for a programmable thermostat that you can adjust remotely. I use 3 at my business. Be sure you have a 24v line coming off your unit OR you will need to purchase a transformer. Using just the white, it WILL power up, but it WON'T run the system. Don't be fooled :) One of ours had the blue but it wasn't connected. That was an easy fix. The other two are just heat with two wires. Had to purchase transformers. It took 10 extra minutes to set that up. YouTube it. The thermostat is great during vacation weeks to turn the heat/ac off from home on a day to day or for a week at a time. Not as intelligent as a Nest, but then again, it's under $100. The convenience of programming at home justified the additional cost for me. No subscription fees too. The optional iOS app works perfectly. One thing I like, it recognized similar daily schedules and grouped those days together so if you make an adjustment, it adjusts both days. But you can still adjust one at a time too.
I was mainly looking for a "regular" thermostat that could also be controlled from my smartphone. This one can be controlled by Alexa or from their TCC app. Both work great. The one thing that didn't work well (for me) was their "smart response." I think they are trying to make this like Nest, where it figures out your usage and tries to be smarter than you are. I didn't want that. I want my house to be cool overnight because I sleep better that way. "Smart response" is focused on when you wake up, and tries to heat the house up so that it's warm when you get up. For example, if I set the thermostat to turn on at 8:00 AM, the smart response might kick in at 6:30 or 7:00 and start heating the house up, which kept waking me up. Once I figured out how to disable this "feature," I am completely happy with the thermostat. If you have the same problem, here's how to disable it:- press and hold the fan and the up arrow at the same time until the display changes.- press next until you see the number 13 at the left and a 1 at the right.- press the down arrow and change the 1 to a 0.- press done.No way you would ever figure that out by trial-and-error...
These replaced four non-WiFi 7-day thermostats at our church. Installation and programming were easy. Similarity to the our old thermostats eases the transition for regular church members who need temporary temperature adjustments for unscheduled events. The web site (for PCs) and cell phone apps make it easy for several key leaders to see what's happening at the building or making program adjustments without traveling to the facility. We hope to reduce energy costs (waste) by avoiding unnecessary or excessive "just in case" HVAC operation. Our normal use schedule is well known (and unscheduled use unpredictable) so the costly "learning" thermostats add no value for us. We have not used the Alexa feature. These are early days but we like these a lot so far.
Very good, reasonably priced WiFi thermostat. I have 10 of these that I monitor through the Honeywell app. They work great and are very reliable. If you have an older system and do not have a “c” wire or an extra, unused thermostat wire at the thermostat then you will need a “c”-wire adapter made by Honeywell (and sold on ). They are simple to install. There is a way to use the fan wire as a c wire but you lose the ability to run the fan by itself (fan will only run with heat or ac). I’ve done it both ways and it does work either way. Last purchased ones are connected to our Echo which was easy to setup and works great. They register full WiFi signal even 2 floors away from my router. They also reliably reconnect after power outages. I have them connected to single stage ac with natural gas furnace, two stage ac with high efficiency natural gas furnace, and two stage heat pumps with electric emergency heat backup and they all work great. Just make sure you carefully follow the instructions to program the thermostat to your specific equipment. My multi-stage heat pumps are controlled by the system control boards and not the thermostats and I have had no problems with the systems running as designed.
I purchased two open box units, everything was inside aside from the wire marking stickers in one of the boxes, I wasn’t planning to use them anyway. I already had the “C” wire behind my old thermostats but had to go in the attic to connect it to my units. Easy install and setup. The only issue I had when registering them to the app was that one of them had already been registered and I couldn’t control it from the app (I’m guessing because it was open box) so I contacted tech support and they had it fixed in no time. Only problem with tech support is they’re not 24/7 so I had to wait till the next day to get it touch with them. Thermostat worked manually in the meantime though so no biggie. You can schedule filter delivery through the app once you input your preferences but I decided to just use “subscribe & save” through because I got a better discount. On the app you can do just about anything. Scheduling on/off and temp settings is easy and has several options. You can also do this from the website and manage notifications. Notifications only come through email, no push notifications or text, which I would prefer. Most cell phone carriers do email to text so I just put that in for notifications.I’ve had these thermostats for a couple weeks now and if I haven’t updated this, I stand by my 5-star review.
