Reviews around app (4.53 of 5)

  • The only problem I have been having is the Android App sometimes says that it can't find the connection to the thermostat and sometimes it does it several times in a row.
  • All that said the app is very straightforward and easy to use and the thermostat seems to work well.
  • I then go and look at the thermostat to see if that actually worked because you can't really trust the app.
  • This model works well and the app is fairly easy to use.
  • Very friendly app to program thermostat, way cheaper than Nest.

Reviews around price (4.39 of 5)

  • This thermostat allowed me to do that at a pretty good price.
  • It was easy to install and wifi set up was simple, but the price is expensive
  • Does everything you want from a wifi thermostat, for a great price.
  • Great thermostat for the price works great with my Google home
  • I wish the software would provide ore information on times of use and the like, as well as the ability to lock out changes at the thermostat, as my kids have a habit of turning the thermostat settings to extremes of heating and cooling (like turning the A/C on when it is freezing outside).

Reviews around feature (4.05 of 5)

  • Another great feature is the ability to turn off the system remotely
  • Lacking major features that my old thermostat had, it just feels more like a downgrade
  • I like the feature of setting the thermostat temperature just before I get up and arrive home.
  • While I gained the ability to control it with my voice, I lost many other features, and as I said earlier, I could have adapted my old thermostat for voice control

Reviews around setup (4.02 of 5)

  • I probably would not buy this thermostat again - giving it a 3 because it works fine in manual mode and now, maybe in wifi but setup was very painful.
  • Initial setup can be confusing unless you follow the manual very carefully.
  • Install was easy, setup was easy and the app for the iPhone is well laid out.
  • Incredibly easy setup, great online interface and the accuracy and dependability of Honeywell.
  • And the setup is a pain after it fails, won't be as simple as the initial setup.

Reviews around morning (1.00 of 5)

  • I like the way these thermostats anticipate the time needed to bring the home up to temp and kicks the furnace on a bit earlier on the really cold mornings

  • Set the schedule and wake up comfortable in the winter during those cold mornings.
  • Or if I wake up to a Cold morning I can change it before getting out of bed.

Reviews around model numb (1.00 of 5)

  • I did a swap for a second brand new unit of exactly the same model number.
  • " as a matter of fact lets not even put the model number on the page
  • Removing the old unit was quite simple, just took a quick Google search of the model number to get a PDF of the instruction manual, which told me how to safely remove it and not put a hole the size of a basketball into the drywall.
