- Programming the thermostat for each day of the week is a cinch
- Works like a dream as long as you have a reliable Wi-Fi connection
- Reliable, workhorse device at a reasonable cost
Easy to program the thermostat for multiple days, Wi-Fi connection allows for remote access, compatible with a wide range of HVAC systems, affordable, and features user-friendly menu navigation.
Requires a C-wire (not all homes have one); thermostat must be near a reliable Wi-Fi connection.
Performance: If you're looking to pay less for a smart Wi-Fi thermostat, this is the one for you! The device connects to your home wireless network, and you can access/control it remotely via the mobile app downloaded to your Android/iOS smartphone. Despite a few connectivity issues, you'll find that it is highly accurate and reliable for keeping your home at the right temperature.
Thanks to the thermostat, you can easily adjust your home's HVAC system to heat/cool your home exactly the way you want it. There's a setting for each day of the week, which makes it easy to account for days spent away, nights out, and the time you're at work/the gym.
Features: There aren't too many features built into the thermostat: the 7-Day heating/cooling schedule, mobile alerts and notifications, and temperature readings. However, for a basic smart thermostat, it does its job very well.
Programming the 7-day heating/cooling schedule is simple, but connecting to the wireless network can be a bit challenging. Some users found that their efforts to deal with connectivity problems accidentally changed settings on the thermostat, leading to problems with their HVAC system.
Price: At $90, this is one of the cheapest wireless thermostats around. It may have a few bugs in the system, but it does its job of keeping your home as cool/warm as you want it. Worth the price!
