EcoNet Home Comfort WiFi Module for Rheem Performance Platinum Smart Electric Tank Water Heaters is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 131.

The wifi module was installed with the Hybrid 50G heater at the beginning of July 2017. So far, both heater and module are working well. The installation of the module is straight forward, and it only requires one connection between the module and the heater. You will need the EcoNet app to link the module to your home network. The software works on Android and Windows 10 PC; I don't have Apple products so I cannot verify operations with iStuffs. The app is buggy, and it seems that it's still under development. For example, when programming the heater to go on vacation, it will get stuck at a random preset time and date, which you cannot edit it. I spoke with Rheem support group and they were able to duplicate the problem on their end. So they have escalated to their next level of experts for resolution. The vacation mode cannot be set on a Android handset; I have a Samsung S7 running Android 7. You will need to run the app on a PC, but then will experience the problem described above. The tech support promises me that I will hear back from them on how to fix the bug. As of the date of this review, the problem persists, and I have not been contacted by Rheem. Other functions of the apps appear to work using your mobile device. So buy this with an understanding that the app is still under development.

My issue with the EcoNet adaptor is that it's a $90 interface that gives less information than if you were accessing the touch screen on the hybrid waterheater. It does have an 'Energy Usage' feature but it hasn't worked since day one and EcoNet can't seem to get it working. Not to mention the heater doesn't have a way of actually measuring its energy usage so if it did work the values are just calculated numbers coming from a cloud server. If I hadn't spent the last month back and forth with EcoNet support of the energy usage feature I would have returned it. Only value in having this is if you are using a Nest thermostat which it will connect with and put the system in standby mode if you're not home. Doesn't work with any other thermostat like that.

I was excited by the possibilities of bumping up the temp when I knew I would need a hot bath. My hot water heater is hard to access. As an IT guy, I have about 40 devices on my network, many of them IOT devices and no problems with any of them. However this device is unreliable AND doesn’t deliver. Roughly every 2 days this device drops off the network and requires a reboot to get back on. If you think you can use this to turn on vacation mode while away, chances are you can’t. Unless you just rebooted it. Want to turn up the water temperature? You can’t go past 130 in either performance or energy saving mode. To add insult to injury, If your water temp is set above 130, say 135 for example, and you want to drop it down a degree. The moment you tap the - sign it goes to 130 AND you can’t turn it back up unless you go to the Water heater and use the console. Want to schedule you’re vacation mode or see how much energy you are using on the water heater and how much it costs? Not with this device or it’s app. This device isn’t quite garbage but it does stink!

A few calls to Eco Net support has resulted in them sending a new unit, haven't received it but hopefully it will work. Home Depot should have pulled all of the known defective units from their shelves.

Water on floor notifications DO NOT WORK This is a review of the EcoNet WiFi Module. In May 2017 I installed a Rheem hybrid hot water heater and this module. One of the features of the heater that attracted me was the “water on the floor” alarm. When you couple this alarm with the Econet module the Rheem Cloud is suppose to send you an Email and/or TEXT MESSAGE when there is water sensed on the floor beside the water heater. While I do not obsess a lot about broken pipes, I found it quite attractive to be alerted of such an event in the time it takes to send an SMS. My first call to Rheem support was on May 29th, 2017,,, I received a callback the following day and was told by LVL2 that they were aiming for a software solution by 6/30/17. I have called Rheem a half dozen times since, there has always been a different excuse or delay as to why this feature has not been made to work. My last contact on 10/20/17 left me thinking that “we're still working on it” really means “it will never work”. Many reviewer complain about problematic setup or lack of functionality, I agree. So much could have been done to control the water heater for even greater economies, so little was done. I do not think that I would repeat this purchase. Rheem could do better. I guess this is what you get when you contract out the software to a cheap offshore provider. I would like to say that level 1 support was fast and effective when the main controller board on the water heater died a month after install.
