The Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat is a truly universal Wi-Fi solution that provides remote access to your home comfort. Anytime, anywhere. The free Sensi app lets you stay connected to your thermostat via smartphone, tablet or PC. Easily set and control your heating and cooling schedule with seven independent day in-app programming options. Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat users can save up to 30% in energy costs by adjusting their thermostat schedules around their lives. Because Sensi is built by Emerson, precision control is at your fingertips. With unique cycle rate settings, Sensi will keep the room temperature to within plus/minus 1°F, a challenge for many other Wi-Fi thermostats on the market. It also features a sleek, low-profile design and built-in humidity sensor. The online compatibility tool at sensicomfort.com and easy step-by-step in-app instructions take all the frustration and guesswork out of installation.

Or, control and customize your settings directly from the Wink app along with other Wink-compatible devices.

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 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: 
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.

If the internet goes down and the connection is lost from the router, or if you have a power failure, the unit will automatically restore the connection when the internet or power is back. It uses alkaline batteries as backup power source for setup memory.

Yes, to be direct to your specific question. But with networking, you could experience various issues. If your power goes out or internet goes down from you ISP, the thermostat will reconnect once the power is restored to the router/modem or your internet is back up. The Thermostat has batteries, so it remains functional even when power is out. If internet goes out, the thermostat is still connected to your wifi router; you just can't remotely connect until your internet is restored. My power went out this morning, and everything is fine. Power has gone out several times since I installed this thermostat. I haven't had to touch the settings/internet setup since I originally installed & configured it few months ago. Back to your question, if the thermostat has lost wifi connection to your router or the thermostat has no internet connection...your problem is then likely going to be an issue with your wifi router instead of the thermostat.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 182 reviewers.
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 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 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 Thermostat This is a great thermostat. I removed our old "programmable" thermostat and replaced it with this. the old unit had DST dates hard coded in the ROM and they were no longer correct since the dates shifted, that became a real pain. My house has 3 systems, the one I installed this on is a heat pump with electric backup. Wiring was very easy using the app on my Android tablet. WiFi setup was easy too, and has worked since day one. To control this device, sometimes I use the Android app, and other times I just visit the webpage with my laptop. The online control is very well done, kudos to the programmer(s). Background is blue when cooling, red when heating, and gray when system is not running. There is a help center but I have never needed it, the software is so intuitive. Very simple and works great! I have included some screenshots of the web app from my laptop. I took some extra time before reviewing this because I wanted to live with it for a while, glad I did. I will be buying more! Buy this, you will not be disappointed! April 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Install -- Easy to Use Surprising easy to install -- the directions were so easy to follow and we were done in about 20 minutes. We installed 2 -- one for up and one for down with connection to an iphone. Suggest you purchase the Wall Plate as well as there is never a perfect fit and the plate completes the look. I did have to call the service center to be sure I had the iphone connection right for the second thermostat and that was also amazing. Little wait time and smart person to help on the phone. I do not normally submit reviews, but this was so great, I had comment. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy installation - Label your wires before you disconnect old unit – No C wire required The installation was easy it even comes with a little built-in level to ensure you’re installing the unit straight. My old unit had a different look for the red wire, but with the Sensi app you just punch in the wire colors you have and it tells you how to install the red wire. It doesn’t require a C wire like other smart thermostats, so that’s a plus if your unit doesn’t have a C wire. At first I tried setting it up using my own WiFi but I guess you have to use the Sensi WiFi and password included with the unit. Once I had that figured out it was easy to set up and program. I love how I’m able to change the temperature from my phone in any room in the house. So when I’m upstairs and too lazy to go downstairs to turn the heat up or down I just do it via my phone. This is so cool and the price is very reasonable. I chose this unit because I was looking for a smart thermostat in white and others I’ve seen were black. All my light switches, doors, and wood trim are white in my house so I didn’t want a black unit on my wall. I’m glad I got this because it’s very nice looking and it works perfectly for my needs. February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plug Unit matched the hole pattern from old Honeywell unit perfectly. Didn't need to drill holes or install wall anchors. Didn't need to mark the wires. Four wire colors matched the markings on the Sensi unit. Easy install. Works great! Excellent value for the money! May 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by "Cool" Thermostat. The Sensi Wi-Fi Remote Access 7-Day Programmable Thermostat is a real technological advancement in thermostats. It is really cool to be able to set the temperature for the house from anywhere. I no longer have to remember to turn down the heat before I leave in the morning. I got this because of the Sensi people really encouraging the DIY install. I was a little nervous that I would not be able to install myself but the video from the app made install very easy. IF you are in the market for a thermostat I highly recommend this one. November 30, 2015
