Questions & Answers

Wi-fi

Do I have to hook it up to wifi? Can I just use the water heater and not buy the wifi part?
Asked by: AZ
You do not have to use the wi-fi feature so no, you don't HAVE to buy it.
Answered by: DavidRayRob

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

Asked by: AJ
Yes, in the instruction manual it states to just turn the front panel temperature control knob all the way off and then to the desired temperature.

Product compatibility

Is this module compatible with Nest technology?
Asked by: Barry

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.

Two days after installation I got an Alarm Alert A102 that there was a water leak. It was a false alarm. There was no water and the leak sensor was completely dry. I sent a response email to the alert email then read "We are unable to respond to inquiries sent in reply to email." There was no way to dismiss the alert and no mater what I pressed on the screen I kept getting a window telling me to email a plumbing contractor. I was unable to do anything with the Rheem app--I couldn't change the temperature or activate the vacation mode. The email was sent from "help@econetsupport.com." So I went to the website econetsupport.com and it just said "Coming Soon." I realized that the Unit might be bad (bad sensor, broken wire, etc) but I also realized that the support for this Unit really sucks. I returned the unit today, three days after installing it.

Plus once you get it working it doesn't do much. OK, so in spite of all the justifiably bad reviews, i bought it anyway. I'm a geek and it was only around $50. After trying to set it up using the Android phone app and getting nowhere, I sent Rheem an email and got a response that said the Android app is messed up (ya think?) and try it with another device. So I tried with my Windows 10 laptop and it set up without difficulty. Once the WiFi Module was set up that way, the phone app seems to work OK. However, it just doesn't do much. Yes, you can set the water temperature, set vacation mode, and see current error codes, but there's no energy usage information, run history, or error history. Pretty useless unless you travel a lot like we do and want to take the water heater out of vacation mode when you're on your way home from a trip, so you can take a shower shortly after you walk in the door. I would only recommend this device to geeks like me or folks who travel a lot and want the ability to turn on and off vacation mode remotely. Rheem has a whole lot of software work to do to make this an attractive product. One final thought, these Modules must not be selling, the Module I received had a date code in 2014, 3 years ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from HD is VERY persistent for reviews. I'm only doing this... HD is VERY persistent for reviews. I'm only doing this to make it stop! I read all the negative reviews about this product & bought it anyway. It did not let me down. The interface for set up is terrible, it took multiple attempts rebooting everything from phone, router, to the actual unit. This is a fancy on/off switch. But I bought it because I have Nest, Tstat, camera's, smoke alarms, and Philips lights. So theoretically this will go into vacation mode when we leave and come back on when I bring the house back up to temperature thereby saving the $50 cost to purchase. Of course there is no way to test it other than rely on the AP since when we arrive back it will be back up to temperature!

The one I need is, conveniently, not available right now (out of stock?) and no one knows when it will be available. It was supposed to be included with the heater, but NO it wasn't! LAME

Had a little trouble initially syncing it but finally recognized my smart phone. Didn't fiddle with the vacation mode but it successfully changes the temperature. Wish it had the ability to detect leaks, maybe with a future software update. For 49 bucks it was a good deal.
