    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.

              Thermostat does not stay connected. It worked for a few days. Then not. Called customer service. They advised to push it on sides. Did so and it worked for a few more days. Am going to have it professionally replaced.

                First thermostat didn't last a year. Let's see how long this one lasts

                  Lacking energy logging, remote sensors. Good interface but looks a decade old. Modern internet enabled and remote thermostats offer usage statistics which are useful in understanding and diagnosing problems.

                    I freakin love being able to set a schedule and make temperature adjustments from either my iPad or iPhone. The ability to change the temp in my house before I leave work when outside temps are extreme is perfect for our Florida home.

                      Installation took 2 hours with tech support for updates etc. Display font is too small

                        This was simple and straight forward to install even with adding the c wire. App is easy to understand and use. I would recommend to anyone.

                          Enjoy the way I can change the temperature without having to get up and going to the thermostat all the time. Looking forward to using it remotely while on vacation.

                              Had it for about 6 months and it was working great. Then one day the wi-fi stopped working, but the thermostat works fine. Spent an hour on the phone with the support technician but no luck. Honeywell will not replace it. I am disappointed that they won't stand behind this product. My next one will probably be a different brand.

                                I had some issues with the WiFi but figured out what was going on. Seeing this on my phone works great for me. Highly recommended this product

                                  These are the best thermostats, so nice to be able to adjust from anywhere, anytime.

                                      Install is easy if knowledgable about running C common wire. Wifi setup is easy. Make sure you understand which cycle choice to choose for optimum performance . There are more attractive screens available but price performance on this model excellent

                                        I travel a lot and the Honeywell WiFi thermostat gives me the comfort to have my home temp what I want when I want. I can set it anytime and from anywhere. I love the auto Heat/AC feature so I don't have to switch it from Heat to AC, it's automatic

                                          This is the 5th one I installed at home. They work great! I had to make custom contactor controllers to control the heaters that are 240 volt ac auxiliary heat but that was simple. I have 2 controlling heat and ac in my barn and 3 in my house.

                                            Everything seemed great , until your network was down and unfortunately that was 2 days after my installation. Then I received an email every hour telling me your company couldn't communicate with the thermostat. Honestly not impressed.

                                              We’re snowbirds and like the one we have in the mountains. I like the phone app that changes the Temp remotely. The one in Fl doesn’t have the inside humidity which the one in the mountains has. I like the outside temperature and humidity.

                                                  Thermostat is good but the total home connect site is undergoing 6 weeks of maintenance and there is no way to tell if there is a malfunction or just server upgrade problem. What large company takes 6 weeks to upgrade their servers?

                                                    Works great, only drawback is no alarm for tempbthat drops below a certain set setpoint. At least not that I've found.

                                                      it's taking a little work to understand how this thing works and some fine tuning. still working on some of the settings and understanding how this things adapt you your life style. all the functions works as expected.

                                                        First one stopped working after just two years. Recent connectivity problems.

                                                          I was looking for a wifi thermostat to monitor and control the temperature in my house, I found the Honeywell WF8580 online and decided to take a chance once I read the reviews and have always had good results with Honeywell products. It works great!
