For years now Wi-Fi technology has spread out to many manufacturers of digital thermostats. Most of them rushing to market with the latest one-up version to be….just that, the latest. Not necessarily better, but the latest.
After having to install many of these thermostats that were purchased from the local box store by our customers, it is painfully obvious that the required time and effort for set-up along with the lack of customer product support soon becomes a buyer-beware oh-oh, or no no.
I do not wish to name any of the products here, other than one that sounds like the “Money” you may “well” have just wasted. They have a solid working product line that simply has too many steps for the average dude to sort out.
Here are some features and Benefits taken directly from the Sensi promotional pages.
If you find yourself struggling to read the controls on your old home thermostat, or have a child that just loves to push its buttons, then look for a newer Wi-Fi thermostat model that has more features you need.
A large, easy to read display and Keypad Lockout are two of many features found in the Sensi thermostat.
Everything you want in a thermostat.
The Sensi™ thermostat is loaded with features designed to make it easier and more convenient than ever to achieve the perfect level of comfort in your home. From a simple DIY installation process to an intuitive mobile app that allows you to adjust the settings on your thermostat from anywhere, the Sensi thermostat was built with you and your comfort in mind.
Ever wake up to a freezing house and wish you didn’t have to trek down a long hall to turn up the thermostat? Turned the thermostat setting up while on vacation to save money and had to return home after a day of traveling to a sweltering house? Dreamed of being able to control a home appliance with only your voice? The correct Wi-Fi thermostat can help with all of these things.
Sensi thermostat has a free mobile app that serves as an intuitive remote control, allowing you to set, change and schedule your home thermostat temperature from your bed, your couch, across the room, or across the country. And since Sensi thermostat now works with both Amazon Echo and Wink, you can simply plug in and pair to the smart home platform of your choice to seamlessly control all of your connected devices. With 7 independent day schedules, you can match your home thermostat settings to your schedule so you’re not needlessly cooling or heating an empty home. Using a pre-set heating and cooling schedule can help save up to 30% on your energy bill each year.
No other Wi-Fi thermostat works with more heating and cooling systems.
With Emerson’s 75 years of experience, we know thermostats. So, when we set out to create a Wi-Fi solution, compatibility was our top priority. In most cases, the Sensi thermostat does not require a C-wire to function, so it works with virtually all combined heating and cooling systems.
