I bought this thermostat because of the wifi and the free app. I liked that I could monitor and change the temperature remotely. Worked great for a year and a half, until it was out of warranty. Then we went away for a weekend and the thermostat malfunctioned and ran the heat constantly. I got an e-mail from the app that the temperature in our house was over 85 degrees... actually about 99 degrees. In the summer. In the middle of August.
Long story short, I had to coordinate an HVAC company to come out while we were away to access/confirm that the thermostat was malfunctioning and was running the heat constantly. The only way to get the heat to stop running was to remove the thermostat or flip the emergency switch.
And with only a 1 year warranty Honeywell won't do anything. Very disappointing.

I may be impartial about this thermostat because I own 3 of these, but they are simple to install and program.
I think the only caveat would be, make sure you have a "C" wire or a wire for power. These units donot use batteries, so you'll need this to complete the install. Consult a professional if you get in too deep.
Most wires off the back of the thermostat will have an extra wire not used. Often times it's actually the blue wire. Find an unused wire and connect it on the furnace side for power. See the Honeywell link below for instructions, or google it, others have gone before you and shared. Good reliable product, easy to setup.

Bought this to install in our new home. Easy install if you follow the directions. Took only a few minutes to log into my Wi-Fi. The phone app is very user friendly, I liked being able to eliminate time periods. Couldn't see spending hundreds more for a thermostat for a few extra bells and whistles.

After reviewing several thermostats we chose this. Pretty easy to install. Much smaller than our previous one. Had some trouble connecting to the wifi however once on it was very easy to wonk on my iPhone.

Works great. No need to spend the extra $ on the other devices either. Highly reccomend. And the install guide was very comprehensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ED Great Purchase works with Echo Alexa
I bought this to replace a previous Honeywell model and the backplate is similar so installation was easy. The iphone app is great and easy to use to set temperatures and set fan. Everything you can do from the local thermostat you can do from the app except setup. Also works with Amazon Echo and you can say set temperature to X degrees and almost immediately you will see the change on the thermostat and on the app.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drew Good value, Great control from anywhere
I've been researching WiFi thermostats for some time now, but just haven't wanted to spend several hundred dollars for something so simple. I really liked the price of this thermostat, so I decided to try it. I was very happy with how simplistic the main unit is. This was installed in a back hallway where I would never use the bells and whistles of the more complicated WiFi thermostats. I'm really happy with the apps for the iPhone and Android devices. It works really well and responds to your online commands very quick. The online apps also update in real time, so no need to constantly click your refresh buttons for the current status. I'm happy with being in control of how much power I can save by not running the units all day when I'm not home. Plus, the convenience of text message alerts when it's too hot or cold will help me pro-actively choose when to finally turn the unit on.
The only thing I could recommend is to research if your current thermostat wiring has the needed "C" control wire connected already, or if there are at least enough extra unused wires that you can connect it to your main central control unit. This is VERY IMPORTANT since you cannot use the thermostat without it (this is how the thermostat gets its power), and older wiring may not support this extra wire. Honeywell has great easy-to-follow videos on YouTube for installing this thermostat and correcting the needed “C” wire.
