"Buyer Beware! Nice concept that doesn't work."1.5 starson by bmalloy68
Pros: remote access for those that travel a lot
nice reporting tool for energy use
easy to install
nice looking device
Cons: after 2 days battery low
after 2 more days battery low
after another day...shocking BATTERY LOW!!!!!
support happily says system is compatible without mention of potential battery issue which is CRITICAL!
extra wall plate doesn't hold the device
Summary: Extra features - which is the wifi and the reason to buy this device SIMPLY DO NOT WORK WITH A 4 WIRE SYSTEM and you MUST HAVE A C WIRE. But they won't tell you that until AFTER you buy it of course which disgusts me to no end. When you KNOW the device can have a problem you don't state it is fully compatible when obviously that is simply not the case.
I had high hopes for this product but after having spent this kind of money and having the issue of having to take it off the wall every 2 days I will never waste my time or money with this.
Returning it I am so disgusted at this point. I travel a lot so am away often and this is worthless to me since the battery won't last more than two days.
I will go buy the Honeywell for half the price that I know will work fine and I won't have to take it off the wall every 2 days to manually charge the damn thing.
Pretty much purchased a $250 standard wall thermostat. Lucky me. to say I feel ripped off is an understatement at this point.
