          The choice of purchase was made by built-in WiFi and stock availability. Found a big dent on bottom edge after open the box, and the Android app is too basic on option, but it difficult to setup and use, it frozen up when I try set to vacation mode and took me hours to reinstall, it scared me to trying again.

          The temperature needs more available settings. Otherwise the water heater seems to be working well.
