From the couch, the car or the airport lounge, Sensi thermostat provides complete control of your home comfort. Anytime. Anywhere. Using the free Sensi mobile app, you can remotely access, change and schedule your home temperature - with the swipe of a finger. In fact, when you use programmed heating and cooling schedules, you can save up to 30% in HVAC related energy costs. Your Sensi thermostat is designed to install in 15 minutes or less, even if you’ve never installed a thermostat before. You don't even need to know what kind of system you have; we'll figure it out for you right inside our free app. And because it doesn't require a “C-wire” in most applications, your Sensi thermostat works with most heating and cooling systems. Sensi thermostat is built with precision control and comes Energy Aware® certified. With unique cycle rate settings, Sensi will always keep the room temperature within one degree of where you set it - a challenge for many other Wi-Fi thermostats on the market.

  • Connect Sensi thermostat to your home Wi-Fi network and control from anywhere via free mobile application (compatible with android and iOS)
  • Optional 7-day scheduling helps reduce wasteful heating and cooling when no one is home
  • Quick and easy DIY installation in 15 minutes or less; the Sensi mobile app includes a step-by-step installation guide and video tutorial

Answer: 
It's supposed to maintain the schedule that's active if the wi-fi connection is lost, and believe me, the wi-fi connection on mine drops out a lot. But my schedule still functions without the wi-fi. The schedule can't be revised without the wi-fi connection. The wi-fi connection on mine drops out every few monts and I have to delete the thermostat in the app and reinstall it. A real pain.

Answer: 
I have to disagree, as my new thermostat has lost its internet connection literally as we speak. It is set to 70 degrees but the actual temperature inside my house is 62 degrees, and the furnace will not turn on. It's even set to "on" instead of "auto". Nothing's wrong with my furnace...just this thermostat. Brr!

It does not rely on the internet for it to function. In fact, the best part about this model is that it blends in to the normal decor of your existing home without looking like it's from Star Trek or from the year 2040... It functions normally as if you did not even have a wifi-capable thermostat. The only part about not having an internet connection is that you will lose the capability of controlling it wirelessly. So if the internet goes out for a few days you will not lose any functionality. Hope that answers your question? Read Less

Answer: 
Hello,
The Sensi is not a wireless thermostat. It does require wires between the thermostat and your system in order to operate your system properly. Please email Sensi Technical Support at support@sensicomfort.com if you have questions about your specific system compatibility. Thanks, and have a great day!

Yes, I run the app on both my smartphone and my tablet. Access to your thermostat is essentially thru the cloud via the manufacturer's website. Both devices simply need to login into the app which in turn is logging into your account/thermostat on their website.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 199 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy This is my first wifi-enabled thermostat and I looked at the reviews on this website. After all, I chose this one and it works as people wrote in the reviews. Very satisfied!!! August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Upgraded old Thermostat This is a good buy if your looking for WI-FI capabilities at a low price. Installation was a breeze without the need for a C-wire that some of the higher priced models require. The local weather information on the App could be a little nicer but that's what the weather channels for. Overall it does what I need it to do. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this Thermostat, Pleasantly Surprised After some initial concerns about privacy / security that I had about the thermostat on the home WiFi - which were fully addressed by the Home Depot / Sensi team - I got the thermostat installed in under 30 minutes...a personal record for thermostat installation for me. ;) The installation is made so simple with the Sensi app walking you through the process step by step, telling you exactly what to do and including helpful things like wire labels for when you are disconnecting your old thermostat / getting ready to install the Sensi. Now that it's fully installed, I love it - love the programmable aspect, of course, but really love the ability to control via the app on my phone. Excited about the energy efficiency this will make easy for me - and glad to have a bit of smart technology in my home. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Install and Set-up. Nice Wifi Thermostat w/ No C Wire Required The Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat perfromed as advertised. The install and set-up was easy untalizing the Sensi app. As a novice, I was pleased at how easy this item was to install. It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. After using the thermostat for a few months, I am pleased with the overall performance. The thermostat is easily programable from your cell phone and the ability to change the temp from anywhere has been useful. When selecting this thermostat is was important that it did not require a C wire. Many of the other wi-fi thermosats on the market require a C wire that is not availalbe in older homes. I am very happy with this purchase and plan to purchase another one for my 2nd system. Although the installation app was helpful, it would have been nice to have a manual included. That is the only drawback I have seen with this product. May 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wifi Thermostat This is the second Sensi Wifi thermostat I have purchased and am very pleased with both. This thermostat gives me the freedom to control my household temperatures from anywhere in the world. It is very intuitive, simple, and works well. The associated app is very easy to use...not too complex but just enough information to do what I need. It was easy to set up and I had a couple of questions while installing and the help- line and assistance was super. I had a Nest thermostat before this and it was a disaster and much more expensive. I could not be more satisfied. August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by A/C runs too often I bought this thermostat to be able to control from my phone. I have never had a problem with the thermostat not being able to be controlled from my phone. The problem I have been have is my air condition cycles to frequently. I called tech support and they said that they know about the problem and are working on fixing it in their next thermostat. The tech support said that even on the loosest setting, the thermostat will keep the temperature within 0.5 degrees F. If that could change so that if my thermostat was set at 75, the temperature would have to raise to 76.6 degrees F before it would turn on to cool it to 74.5 degrees F. This would make me change my review of this product from fair to outstanding. I bought this to help lower my bill and it has ended up costing me more money. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! Easy to install. I did have to run a new wire for the common, since my original only had 2 wires. Really like being able to wake up and turn up the heat from my phone before I get going. Also peace of mind when traveling to check the heat settings. May 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent smart thermostat - Clear, simple install & app Ran into this thermostat while pondering a smart 'stat vs. a regular programmable 'stat. Decided to give this one a shot based on reviews & design of the 'stat and app and, after install, I highly recommend this device. Bottom line: if you're looking to upgrade to a smart 'stat but don't want to worry about dealing with too many features or a complicated install, this would be an excellent choice. Installation is as easy as promised on the box: download the app FIRST, follow the step-by-step instructions, which include optional videos, and the installation should take the promised 15 minutes, max. In fact, even if you're not a handy or techy person, this may be the perfect 'stat for you because the instructions are so clear that as long as you can read, you'll be just fine. One word of warning: you will need a certain degree of manual dexterity (and a small screwdriver) to get the proper wires into the 'stat and screwed in. Beyond that, though, it really is a simple install. As for the 'stat itself, it's a very clean, utilitarian white box with white backlight, with three primary buttons and an additional menu button. Nice and simple. The app is also very well designed and easy to manipulate. My Android version has worked flawlessly. August 23, 2016
