Must I have a user account with the manufacture to change temp settings remotely from the internet?

No. Just had to connect to the internet, using your phone

Will this work with no WiFi? Sometimes our WiFi goes in and out

Asked by MIMI April 24, 2020
4
Answers

Yes, wifi is handy to turn the heat on say, when your on your way up to a cabin, or your at work and want it warm when you come home. It has a feature that may not work as well if the wifi is in and out, called geofencing (turning the heat off say when you are 1 mile away from the unit). Once you are inside however, you can control it like any other heater.

What is the lowest temperature you can set the heat to ? I’m looking for one for my vaction home and need it to go down to at least 45 degrees.

Will this work with a 2 wire system?

Asked by Liz December 28, 2018
3
Answers

Liz It will work with just 2 wires, but usually the third wire is a "C" wire, giving the requisite 22-24 volts needed to run the unit. My work around was to buy a 24 volt dc transformer, and hide that power supply running into the unit. Adding the 24 volt power supply to your two off/on wire and you have a solution that will even run my 75 year old .5 volt on off system. There are 2 or 3 videos out there that will tell you how to tell what wires go where and where to find transformers. I used a Rainbird 24 volt transformer, available at home depot. Plugged it into a nearby outlet and ran the wires somewhat hidden into the back of it, along with my 2 wire "ON/OFF" wires. Works beautifully.

If I lock remotely will those people at the unit be able to override if I want to program a max temp?

Answers

yes 1 weakness is the front housing doesn't lock onto rear wire housing very well, make sure your wires are not impeding this.

can you lock the thermostat with a password??

Asked by Yvette November 27, 2018

Answers

No a password but if you press it for like 10 seconds it will lock. The same to unlock.

Doesn't hold WIFI connection, it doesn't reconnect automatically, need to set up WIFI again every time it disconnects. Is easy to assemble if all lines are available, if not, need to rewire with correct connection. Other than that it is working fine.

Excellent unit works with just about any HVAC possibility out there and comes with adapter to accommodate, has a alot of service adjustments for the HVAC tech or engineer type. Great app and has a blower recirc every 6 mins/hr for stale air when not using heat or cool, very useful feature. Lux has been around for a long time and make therms very well on par with Honeywell in performance. The Kono has features you didn't know you wanted, but now you cannot live without.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I've been looking for a smart Wi-Fi thermostat for a while now, but nearly all of them are white and look quite cheap, even if they are not. Then I came across the 'Kono Smart Wi-Fi Thermostat with Interchangeable Black Stainless Steel Faceplate' which is a great modern looking design. The exchangable face plate makes it easy to fit the look to your house and style. The installation was relatively easy with the supplied instructions, as my system has a F-wire. If your system doesn't have the F-wire then there is a little box included to help out with that.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
When this device comes into my hand. It show a very gentle smart look. Simple sqaure design with 4 divided area one is for screen show. One Big metalic finishing knob. Open the box there comes with a manual, but it take some times to read through of it before you set up this electronic device. There are 4 wire to connect to your furnace panel. There including an optional power connector in case your old connection without power connection then it can solve your problem. The manual specially remind you to mark down each of the wire to ensure you will correctly connect to furnace panel. The only is that before you're going to set up you have ot download APP from their web-site and load to your iphone or anroid then link up your home wi fi system before makes it run. For me, up to this point I aware there are two different kind of buyer, one is old fashion people and one is modern style user. Old fashion user, they mostly just key the button to control cold or heat and another button to adjust the temperature. But this modern device is built in on the face plate and the Big knob. For those who family with iphone may be easier to set up of it. But rather to old version people may face to hard time. As I show to a wirless specialist, he told me certain point that the manual is not simple and clear enough to state clearly of each step of setting. For those who are not family with electronic product would be confuse of it. That means not all DIY people may fully handle of it. Mind one, after my friend help me set up this device still spend more than 20 minutes. Download App, network, wi fi, to and fro number times then get it works. Compare to most advance theromstat , this one seem to be a bit of complication of set up. Either Cold or Heat, it turns out work pretty sharp action. Otherwise, you may contact the Company for a installer. But you have to pay extra installation fee. Price is acceptible, out shape design is nice. Only headache is set up. Of course, if you handle most wireless as an expert, then you may not suffer of it. It is not a bad choice. Simple and Smart look may be one of your key Favourite.

Very easy to install (i had a c wire so did not need the supplied power bridge). Straightforward programming. Easily linked to my phone, just waiting for my Amazon Echo to arrive so I can have 'Alexa' control it.

won't reconnect to Wi-Fi after power outage
I bought this thermostat because it would hook up to my heat pump set up and in that respect it works fine. the temperature is off by almost 3 degree but I compensate for that. the time zone must not be correct on the unit so I have to advance my calendar settings by a hour and I half, I can't find any way to change the time that the thermostat is thinking it is. BUT the WORST part is it looses its wi-fi connection at the drop of a hat!. If the internet goes out it looses connection, power goes out, looses connection. sometime I just come home nothing has went out and the wi-fi logo is blinking. its been a year I have had this thing and I am so disappointed. I even put my router on a battery back up and it didn't help. everything elce reconnects after a power failure why why why would you not make a thermostat do the same?. and don't think its easy to connect back to your Wi-Fi, I still have to look at the manual every time, and don't think it will connect on the first try no no, you will get that connecting to the cloud garbage and stare at that until FAIL! ,, don't waist your time on this Lux Krapo!

If you don’t feel there’s enough 1 star reviews to change your mind then there’s nothing I can tell you except this thing is full of issues. Maybe not today but soon you’ll regret the purchase.
