Answer: 
As others have said, on and off operation is not programmable. Water temp set point can be adjusted up or down, but not time-specific and not repeatable. It's a manual entry. Vacation mode start and stop can be programmed for date and time. For vacation mode, the default start and stop date/times are fully adjustable. I have started vacation mode 5 minutes from the current time.

No, there is no way to schedule it on and off at different times. It only shows current temp settings. Can't even show current water temp.

An On/Off Vacation mode can be scheduled to start and stop at a specific date and time. It is all inclusive meaning the unit is off during the scheduled Vacation time period. There is no auto repeating of the Vacation mode as it is date and time specific. I have noticed there does not appear to be an immediate Vacation Start time available.

Answer: 
You do need a home Wi-Fi previously configured that your smart phone is also connected too prior to setup. Make sure to take a picture of the back of the Econet device including it's MAC address etc. (White sticker on the back.)
Other than that, it simply plugs in and the rest of the configuration is on your smart phone.

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as described This does what it is designed to do. Remote access. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy installation This product was easy to install and did so in minutes. The application for the smartphone was installed and no issues in linking unit. The terminology in the application can be improved. It says engage or disengage for on and off July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not work with Nest as stated on website I purchased one of these modules after seeing it listed on the Works with Nest website, and even did my research on the setup through Rheem's website noting how simple it would be to set up. ...the problem is, their instructions are for a version of the Econet app that hasn't been released for Android, whereas it went live for iOS in February. In fact, Android hasn't received ANY of the iOS updates since August 2015. The module was simple enough to install, and I haven't had any issues with it...minus it not doing the one thing I purchased it for, and it apparently looking as if Rheem has completely dropped support for the Android app. April 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unreliable and no tech support Their site is often down and no one ever replies to your email questions. No wonder the price dropped to $50. It's okay when it works, very basic control. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rheem Econet wifi module Great connect to my phone so i can aee what is going on with the water heater that is cool June 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Minimal functionality This app is almost worthless. You can't turn off or on by application. You can only set it for "vacation" but nowhere can you find out what the temperature is for that setting. I've used it, come home and still had hot water. You need to be able to turn the entire unit off to save power and money! May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't work with all Androids depending on sw The primary reason I purchased a Rheem water heater was because of the wifi feature and the ability to control it via the wifi module from my Android devices. Well as of 11-15-2015 the Rheem Econet app won’t even install on Android devices that are running Lollipop 5.0 sw or higher. I own 2 Android devices both with Lollipop 5 sw. I’ve tried it on a total of 6 Android devices (brands included Sony, Samsung, Asus, LG) all with Lollipop 5 or higher and I get the same message “Your device isn’t compatible with this version”. The app was able to be installed on a friend's iPad and an Android phone with Kit Kat sw, but I don’t own any of those devices. The WINK app will install, but it is barely adequate. It works about half the time. I called Rheem tech support twice and they were clueless about the app issue and of no help. Do not buy this if you own an Android that has or will have newer software. Ended up returning it. If they fix the bugs, I may try it again. November 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice to be able to turn the hot water heater off remotely. Efficient water heater and can turn off from iphone, with the wink system Hub. April 12, 2016
