Pretty good so far. Operable for around a month. Had one instance of not being able to log in to the app so far. Will wait and see how reliable this is long term.

    I have seven of these on my commercial properties and they allow me to cut electrical cost. When tenants come in they blast the temperature so I am able to monitor and change it. The saves me money every month! They easily pay for themselves.

      Very easy to install, great instructions. So nice to be able to adjust the thermostat when needed if you are not at home.

              The system works great if your at home but away can't program it.

                The app is inconsistent. At times it enables me to change the temperature but other times it randomly doesn’t allow me to sign in

                  works as it should-easy to see and to use

                    Always concerned about hackers but love this thermostat. Would recommend. Install and setup was simple.

                      Not real happy about the amount of server maintenance being done and the lack of notification about it. We live in south central Saskatchewan and the current temperature is -32 C. Need to know if my furnace is working properly while I am gone!

                        Missing features like circulate air and fan control on schedule.

                          Simple to use. Easy wifi connectivity. Versatile mobile app and access. Everything I wanted in a programmable thermostat. Well done.

                              Sometimes it does not work
                              by
                                So far very good experience using the app or directly the thermostat. I like to clear visual and easy navigation. The only downside is maybe to size of the thermostat - little too big. Overall great product.

                                  Like being able to control from my iPhone.

                                    My lack of understanding of wireless networks created some challenge. Once I understood what was needed everything became simple.

                                      The setup learning curve was a challenge due to my lack of knowledge. Once I understood what was needed everything became simple.

                                        I had 3 previously and one went bad in less than a year. I had a professional A/C contractor check the whole system. The thermostat stopped turning on the compressor out side. Inside fan unit still functioned. Replaced the thermostat and all works

                                          Very easy to use and I can control the temperature with my phone from anywhere without having to be near the thermostat

                                            This thermostat was so easy to install, the app and set up was a breeze. I recently had to go out of town unexpectedly and was thrilled that I could remotely set the thermostat for the time no one was in the house!

                                              Could never get it to work. Had an electrician look at it and could not get it to work. Put our old one back on.

                                                Do not buy, this is a useless product
                                                In just over 2 years, the wifi on this thermostat stopped working. I called Honeywell support and they said that the thermostat was out of warranty and that they cannot do anything. They don't sell parts and that I can either buy a new one or use this as a normal thermostat (no wifi). DO NOT BUY this item, instead look for a deal on the nest and invest in it.

                                                    I love these green screen smart thermostats, too bad they are no longer available, they are reliable and keeping running to years and conform to the KISS principle (Keep it Simple Stupid).

                                                      Love the device and the app but installation was scary hard. I was amazed we got it right on the first try. Problem is that my system is old 4 wire with no terminal block at the air handler. All hard wired to various contacts willy-nilly.

                                                        Waste of money
                                                        It was difficult to set up we had to hire an hvac tech to come out and pay $100. Worked well at first but then the time changed itself and since it’s automatic I could not manually adjust it. It threw off the entire schedule. It seems to constantly disconnect and reconnect to the WiFi throught the day so I just have to hope it’s connected when I’m remotely adjusting it. That’s the whole point of the wifi thermostat for me. Then at one year old the fan started turning on rather then the ac. I live in a very hot place and when the fan turns on it circulated the extremely hot attic air into the house feeling like a heater turning on before the ac would start up. Then it stopped turning the ac on at all and would just turn the fan on ultimately heating up my already hot house. At one year old I’m extremely disappointed to have so many issues and now not working at all. Total waste of money. The hvac company told me they constantly have issues with Honeywell products and recommend I try sensi by Emerson. So that’s my next move as well as a protection plan!

                                                            Easily installed except for a wire I needed to hook up at the furnace. Not a Honeywell issue, my issue but otherwise very pleased.
