Doesn't work - app never connects
I knew I was in for a bad time when I downloaded the required Rinnai app and it was full of 1-star reviews. The app is awful and I can never get it to connect. It seems that this is a common problem. Total waste of money.

    I have a strong WiFi signal from a mesh router system at home, so have not had as many issues with the connection dropping as some people have reported, but it has stopped working twice. Also, the app is a little rough around the edges. It's usable, but clunky.

    Does not work
    Terrible troubles with linking the Control-R box with wifi. Sometimes it takes days to figure out solution for linking. There are times when I don't even know why it starts working, or not working. Can't figure a clear solution. This can be maddening to have to waste time figuring it out !!!!! The Apps recent update made things worse.

      Highly unreliable
      Have had 2 fail in first year. Wifi often drops out. Doesn't seem to control the water heater reliably. Most recent software update does not appear to have been tested - it shows linked to the smartphone app and I can adjust the temperature, but it no longer allows me to start or stop recirculation - despite the app showing its running or not running, it may or may not be. Also with the latest update neither alexa, nor google home can reach it (tells user no devices registered)

        Poor App/User Design
        Just installed and I was able to use the app to get it set up, but what a poor user experience! Rinnai - spend a few bucks to get a user experience designer instead of an engineer to think about the user experience for the app! Examples: - you can't set a timer for the system to turn on at 6 am and turn off at Midnight (12 am). Instead, you have to say 6am to 11:30pm (because it gets confused by the two am timers). - using the QR code to register the heater is a great idea, but it couldn't read it and kept saying it was invalid, forcing a manual registration. - there's an icon in the lower left corner of the app titled "Priority" but there's no explanation of what it does! - if you have larger text settings on your phone, you can't read the text in the app (it doesn't scroll) - Product information, which I assume should load if you've registered, is blank - Demo is useless. Doesn't do anything. Instructions would be more appropriate. All that being said, the wired controller that I have on my other Rinnai is equally non intuitive. Rinnai really needs to invest in some user-centric designers.

          Does not stay connected to WiFi
          The device connects and disconnects constantly. Spent hours with support on the phone. Have two more smart controllers in the garage along side the Control-R (Genie garage door WiFi module and a WiFi light switch). Both maintain WiFi connection, but the Control-R is flaky. Essentially unusable.

            This review is based on the fact that it was not compatible with my water heater. Probably would work fine with another type

            Must Have
            This is a great addition to our RUR-98. I had no issues connecting to my wifi. I did have a slight issue with pairing the push button but Rinnai customer service helped me out with that. The ability to use a voice assistant, in my case Alexa, and having the app for different commands/controls is awesome. I like that I can set multiple schedules for recirculation and that they are in 30 min increments vs. 1 hour increments on my other controler. I do however hope that there will eventually be 15 min increments added to the scheduling capabilities on the app. I read that you have to change the recirculation setting from economy to comfort, however Rinnai customer service said that is not necessary. There are alot of bad reviews on this unit and the app and I'm not sure why. I will update my review if things change but for now in my opinion this option should be built in to the units because it's a must have!
