Product compatibility

Is this module compatible with Nest technology?

Does this require an electrical connection or electrical outlet?

In the video I saw them plugging something into the wall, but it didn't say what it was. I do not have an outlet near my water heater, and am wondering if it's required for the wi-fi module to work.
Asked by: Pete
Yes.

Can a WiFi type hot water tank be used without using WiFI to control it?

Asked by: AJ
Yep, my wifi hasn't worked since I installed the water heater 2 days ago but the water heater works fine. Currently waiting on my second replacement module.

can i turn my compatible hwt on and off via wifi?

Asked by: bflo2
No, vacation mode (which simply turns the temp setting down for a specified period of time) is the only functionality like that provided by the app/device. Since the water heater only has a physical on/off button I don't believe this could be accomplished with an app update in the future without supplying a new gas control valve to accompany it.

Thought I would give it a try even thou the reviews were terrible and they say they have completely gone thru the app, should of listen and not wasted my time I returned it after it lost connection after a few minutes and said I need to contact the support team and it wasn't a wifi issue all my other devices don't have a problem this needs to be redesigned

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need some firmware fix Product is Great when it works, it disconnects from wifi at least once in a 24hr period. The way I fix it instead of reseting it is just disconnect it and then wait 10 seconds and plug it in again. If it keeps up I will unistall and wait for a coreect fix from manufacturer.

My only complaint was the self sticking clips to be affixed to the safety pan to hold the overflow sensing cable to warn in case of leaks. The metal pan in which the water heater was installed was not replaced. As a result the clips wouldn't stick to the old pan, even though I tried cleaning the old pan. After searching auto parts stores and car stereo dealers for clips, I finally had to jury rig something to hold the overflow sensor cable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a waste don't bother buying it There is only two function. Setting the temp and vacation mode. There is no water temp to see what the current temp is. No graphs to see how well it is working. Nothing that really makes it worth the money they are charging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bare minimum functionality Install was reasonably easy. It took a couple attempts to sync up properly to my wifi. But it did. Yes. You can set the vacation mode and reduce your expense heating your tank while you're away. It might even do that automatically via Wink/Nest. But what's the point when it doesn't have any historical reporting of your usage. It's one thing to have control over your heating, but IMO the real value is in being able to justify a) the expenditure for the device. (e.g. if it saves me $10 over the 10-15yr life of my tank, what's the point?) b) the cost of changing the water heater's cycles while away and how much gas/electricity it's consuming from one day/year to the next. If I go on vacation and it goes into vacation mode and I save 30c for the time at least it's nice to see the value of the product. If I buy a blanket to throw around the water heater show that the number of cycles it's going through to heat the tank is reduced. If it's controlling the temperature why can't it use that information to provide some useful feedback to justify its cost?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rheem WIFI EcoNet System I see lots of reviews complaining about the setup. Can't speak for Android but for iPhone it was a breeze. You need to have the following for setup: mac address (back of module), serial number of water heater and the password to your network router wifi password. After setup it sent me a text message on my phone that registration was complete. I did a water leak test by pouring some water on the water sensor cable (bottom of pan) and the system sent me an alarm on the Rheem app on my iPhone as well as a text message. Very cool! The system will not tell you the current actual water temp but you can set it from your phone. Keep in mind you can not set it higher than the manual dial setting on the water heater but you can set it to any temp lower than that. So if you want it 120 degrees I set my manual knob on the water heater to 130 and then I lowered the temp to 120 on my phone (I can go up to max 130 from the phone). Vacation settings are easy to setup as well. The water leak alarm is a very cool feature as well. I also like the pilot less feature of this Rheem water heater as well. Just make sure you have an outlet near by. Hope this helps!

Since the creation of Wi-Fi connectivity with home appliance it makes good sense to have the control knowledge and capability of knowing the status on your home appliances. With this you have peace of mind.
