The specs say there is no vacation option? Does it at least have a hold option (so if I leave on vacation I can set it for one temp I return)?

Asked by: Bob
Yes, using the hold button will allow you to set one temperature and override the programming. When you want go back to the programming you just press the run button

Had it up for a week, no issues. Loses a star because the screws to attach the wires are incredibly small, I had to grind down my smallest screwdriver to fit. They should have included a cheap screwdriver with it; I would have paid a couple bucks more to avoid that frustration.

Installation is easy if your old thermostat has the same wiring. If not be careful, the instructions included are nearly useless. Honeywell needs to realize that this product may be purchased by an inexperienced dyi home owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoy this thermostat When I went away for few days I always set my thermostat around 45F just to keep water in baseboards moving. The problem was when I returned home, it took few hours to warm up my room to feel nice and toasty. This thermostat was the solution. I checked on internet several videos to learn how to install it and just got confused with all wiring involved. When I finally started working on this project, after removing top of old thermostat I learned, that I will deal with two wires only. What a relief! My home is heated by hot water baseboards and oil furnace. No fans, no heat pump, no AC - simple. But this thermostat can handle much more complicated system. Installation actually was not as difficult as I expected it to be.Temperatures can be set in Celsius and Fahrenheit degrees. Now when I go away I program my new thermostat to higher temperature for several hours before my return and I am enjoying my coming back home much more. This thermostat comes with labeling stickers for indicating any single wire, "Quick Installation Guide" booklet and "Operating Manual" booklet.

This thermostat was purchased to replace a similar unit which came with our house but which the programming doesn't work for. Hooking it up was relatively straight-forward and the directions and supplied-wire labels worked well. Unfortunately, that was all that did. After connecting the thermostat it "worked" in that it could turn the fan on and off, but the display did not light up making it impossible to set the temperature or do other programming. The telephone help stated it must be a defective unit and to return it to the store which we did. However, another previously unknown and unadvertised issue is that this unit apparently does not utilize a "common" or "C' wire" meaning, according to Honeywell support, that is more battery-dependent and not useable for a "smart" setup. Thus we will replace this with a different model which does have a common wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This replaced a Honeywell thermostat using 2 wires that controlled one zone of a hot water system... This replaced a Honeywell thermostat using 2 wires that controlled one zone of a hot water system. First, does it work with a hot water boiler? Visible parts of packaging box fail to say (poor) but quick installation guide on internet and in box said yes. Second, does the battery power the thermostat (what I wanted) or is it backup (do not want). Guide says do not connect any C wire, so works. For wire connection, need a strong, small screwdriver, which some do-it-yourselfers may not have. I much preferred the battery replacement in the side pocket of my previous thermostat over pulling control unit off of the wall plate in this one. For this application, I did not need a highly sophisticated programmable thermostat and this fully met my needs. Programming is a relatively standard Honeywell routine (with some buttons) that I have learned over decades to live with. The easy programming days of the analog thermostat timer with pins resembling a lamp timer passed long ago. Durability unknown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got this today because our old one died. Our old one required you program each day individually ... Got this today because our old one died. Our old one required you program each day individually The Good: 1. Easy to install. The mounting holes lined up with up those from the dead Honeywell thermostat, so that was easy. 2. Comes with labels for the wires so you can label them as you remove them. Wasn’t really necessary for us except for the “C” wire which is not used in a conventional heating/cooling installation. This is your fifth wire. You will only use 4 with this thermostat, so nip off the exposed copper wire, label it and tuck it away. The Bad: 1. Like everything today, thermostats are smaller, so unless your walls were painted before the old thermostat was installed, you will probably now have exposed raw sheetrock you have to paint. I had to. See my before photo. 2. The time display is rather small. 3. There is no way to view the current temperature setting except by reviewing what you have programmed. There is no “i” (information) or Current Setting buttons as in older models. 4. The Set, Hold and Run buttons are small, soft and wobbly. I prefer larger buttons with a solid feel and action. My 2 Cents: Honeywell could immensely improve homeowners’ experiences by providing a collar that goes around these smaller thermostats to hide the exposed sheetrock. I happened to have the paint to cover up, but if you don’t, you have a problem.

The install was easy, as I have done these many times. Instantly when we started to test the functions it blew the fuse in the furnace blower motor. After rechecking everything to confirm install was correct..we tried again..same result. Further testing showed the thermastat itself was bad..right out of the box. Contacting Honeywell regarding the issue turned into one horrific event, they never once apologized for the error and infact blamed me, then my technician who assisted with the problem testing. Never again Honeywell. Will be returning this.

This was easy to install and setup and I like the automation already - bumping up in the morning and down at night all by itself! The only thing I was surprised by was that the display is battery operated. Not a problem - I just assumed it would be powered by the input wires. But overall I'm very pleased with the thermostat and have no regrets.
