Horrid product
It's just rubbish. Touch screen from the 1800s and so unintuative. Push the buttons as directed and have no idea if the programme is activated or synced. Fix it Dimplex or shame on you.

Bad product
It is a terrible product. After speaking with tech support I was told that they are no longer making the product due to issues with it. Do not purchase it.

Needs to be updated
I received and set up my new controller without issues. I have set them up before so I am aware of the "clunkiness" of setting up these units. I think it's time for an upgrade. A few suggestions: Make it a little easier to set them up for the average person, maybe thru the app? Update the controler itself, touchscreen is not very responsive Update app, increase font size for temperature set points. Maybe make it compatible with Alexa. I use the system in my vacation home. The baseboard heaters perform great and look nice. To be 100% honest if I had the funding I would upgrade the system to another brand of electric heat. I really thnki if you made it more user friendly you would knck it out of the park. Thanks

The product is great value but a pain to get going
I have had the setup for 3 years now, i have it setup where it works for us, but on the fly adjustment are difficult and so is setup. Nowhere near the level of nest and such but for the money it is great value
by Daniel

Older technology, difficult to set up. needs power cord to run
by Paul
Terrible APP and incomprehensible set up
Dimplex -- please read all these reviews and fix these issue! the app is totally terrible.
by Klmaaaa
Works but CD be so much better
Please upgrade the thermostat!! Please! Everything works ok but the technology needs an update and upgrade and this product wd be a top seller. Technology should not be the weakest part any longer. There are so many easy and cheap to use wifi thermostats that work better than this one. Either convert to connect to top sellers or make a top notch thermostat pls!

Definitely worth the upgrade
I was tired of hot/cold zones from the 30 year-old manual baseboards with manual dials sitting at ground level. Despite the poor reviews I upgraded to the wifi system. Admittedly the manual was not intuitive but a few points learned that I hope helps with your install. - Syncing the baseboard to the controller is super easy following the instructions. What is missing is no feedback display telling you it synced. But you can check by changing the temp on the controller, pressing Hold and the checkmark. Without fail each baseboard synced with no issues. - The phone apps: I tried syncing my old Android to the controller, dismal failure (I think it was the phone, not the app); I switched to my work iPhone and it was a brilliant success first go around (watch the Youtube video) - Program your heat schedules for you different zone(s) using your phone app, much easier to do than from the controller touchscreen - The hardest part was the baseboard to controller sync (only because lack of feedback, would have been nice if something flashed on the controller but it doesn't) - Don't assume the phone app is buggy, it might be your phone OS it too old (I have a newer Android but it works with Apple so I can't be bothered to see if it was Android (which I doubt)) I love my new system. Day 2 and I can feel the $'s saved already as I enjoy consistent heating throughout my condo

Good intentions, but poor product
Difficult to install. Missing reset button. To reset, it requires removing 6 screws to reach the battery. Instructions are very simplistic. Does not provide any indication if the specific baseboard has been connected to it.
