Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyGardener Modern looking, functional, perfect operation!
We got this thermostat to replace an old and dated looking one. I wanted to have a contemporary look all through my home and this thermostat, from a design point of view, fit the bill. I asked an electrician before installing it about the wiring and found out that in the newer homes the existing wiring had a C wire necessary for this unit. It requires a consistent feed of electricity to function.
The installation was done in a jiffy, no problems whatsoever. The programming was easy too, and I especially like the fact that I can control things via my Iphone no matter where I am.
One caution: since C wires are in only about 20% or less of US homes, it might be advisable to have an electrician on hand.
Really like this unit!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roger A good reliable thermostat
Carrier Cor Thermostat has a large touch screen interface that is not so easy to install for a layman. I had to get it installed using a technician. Once installed it takes a little bit to get used to but works flawlessly. People used to smartphones may find the icons little dated but what matters is it's functionality. It is connected using a wifi connection and can be controlled using the App. App has good features and works well with the thermostat. Just make sure that you have a c wire installed as it does not have the battery feature. If you do not have a c wire then you will have to get it installed. Overall a good purchase

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sacherjj Classy looking and functional
There is really no other way to say it. This looks really sharp on the wall. The only issue I had with install is that I was mounting on a really old system without a common wire. That is required to pull power to run the unit. WiFi connection was quick and simple. If you have an unpowered thermostat now, make sure you have a C wire or easy ability to install it.
If you have never used a WiFi thermostat, you will find it nice to be able to control from away from your home. I often have to leave for a few days. It is nice to be able to bump the temperature back a few hours before you get back. Saving money while you are gone with no discomfort. The app is better than other brands I have used. All in all a good system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hurwizzle Great product!
I am really impressed by the Carrier Cor 7-Day Programmable Wi-Fi Thermostat! The physical unit looks sleek and nice on the wall, the physical unit's user interface is easy to use, and the cell phone app is also easy to use.
I hired a Carrier dealer to come install the thermostat for me because our old thermostat didn't use the same wires as this one. So, it cost me a bit more to install the unit, but I think it'll be worth it in the long run.
The convenience of being able to control the thermostat from literally anywhere in the world (so long as you have internet access) is really awesome. A few times, we've forgotten to change the temperature before leaving the house. With our old thermostat, it would've stayed that way until we got home; now, we just pull out the cell phone and change the setting.
The full website is pretty cool, too. Of course, it allows you to change the temperature settings from wherever you are, but--even better--it tracks your usage and helps you understand your heating and energy usage patterns.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EightOfEight useless instructions
I was having a problem with my furnace, so I had the furnace repairman come out to my house. After he'd fixed the issue, I asked him if he would be able to install this thermostat. He said sure. Now, this is a professional with 30-plus years' experience, and he was not able to install the thermostat -- or even to determine whether it was compatible with my not-very-old system. This is after reading through the useless instructions that came with it, and watching the even more useless videos on the Carrier website, which keep referring you to the website for more help. Ridiculous. I expected more from Carrier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nonsheep What A Great Unit to Replace the old Tired one.
Was very excited to order this Unit & it Arrive fairly quickly in the mail to the house in about 1 week, I got around to installing it on a Snow Day Off from work. The installation was quick & easy & was even able to do a nice insulation backing for it since my thermostat mounts to the North Facing Wall & has no wind breaks from Mother Nature when she blows a cold front in. The Unit went up easy & the wires were easy push in switch unit that is entirely separate from the Main Unit. After Mounting & wiring it the mount plate The Main Unit snaps into place. I turned on the power & the Unit woke up & prompted me through it's setup. Setup was a breeze & the unit is very nice 1 touch screen. The added ability to control the thermostat from my Smartphone is just another Plus!

I replaced my old thermostat with the Carrier Cor WIFI thermostat. I have an older furnace control board and decided to have an HVAC guy come in and install a new wire from the thermostat to control board.
This thermostat is very easy to setup. The unit connected to my WIFI network with no issues.
Carrier has a web site that lets you setup your account and register the new thermostat. You can design your own heating and cooling schedule. The thermostat receives this schedule via internet and does what it’s designed to do.
This thermostat is very stylish and looks great on the wall. Unit is very easy to see in the dark. That’s a great feature.
There’s also a smart phone / tablet app so you can check and modify home temperature.
This is a great investment and I highly recommend this unit.
