Answer: 
yes you can use it as an option add on to the Rheem platinum series natural gas heaters. You can set it up with the Wink app system many many ways. You will have to pick out which capacity you want. I know the 50 gallon has that feature.

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 2.7 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed....more time down than working. This is a fantastic idea for people who travel and want to conserve energy costs. If it only was reliable it would get more stars. My wifi module is only about 20 feet from my router in the basement....clear line of site. However, it seems the coney wifi module keeps losing its connection. None of my other wifi products lose connection. So as I am typing this review on vacation....my iPad screen says connection error....please unplug the module and plug it back in. I've been doing this a lot for the past three weeks. This has been the case since I got this hooked up three weeks ago. Not sure if it is a defective module or programming. Until I see more reliability I can not recommend this product. Also, pretty much the only thing you can do is schedule the device to go on and off vacation mode for specific dates and times. It would be nice if you could control it like a programmable thermostat....making it hotter in the mornings as each family member takes their shower so we don't run out of hot water and be able to lower the temp for the rest of the day. All in all...nice start. Just get it to work and have more programmable options and it will be worth the $50. July 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WIFI APP is very unstable I have installed 2 Rheem water heaters and 2 wifi modules. The water heaters by Rheem are wonderful and built well. I have been very happy with them. However the wifi modules have had issues since the day they were installed several months ago. There is some connectivity problem that occurs frequently which causes an error message on the mobile app. When that occurs you lose all control of the water heater from your smart phone and the only way to clear it (according to Rheem) is to constantly reset the module at the water heater. Mine are located in my attic which is a complete pain. Rheem claims that they are working on a fix but it's been months. You would think Rheem would put some priority on this. There have been other issues when I first purchased the modules related to non functional text alerts. At least that issue has been resolved. My recommendation is you NOT purchase this WIFI module until Rheem resolves their issues. September 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst thermostat Ever DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT SUCKS. I had to get it because its the only unit that runs my HVAC variable speed unit. It goes off line daily (yes they know its an issue). Then you have to go to the WIFI part and reset it. The thermostat is even worse. if you are getting a new unit make sure its compatible with the NEST or Ecobee3. I love the Nest and miss it. NEST PLEASE MAKE YOUR THERMOSTAT COMPATIBLE WITH RHEEM VARIABLE SPEED UNITS. Nest vs Econet - NEST EVERY TIME. August 24, 2016
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 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
