If you are unsure about what you are doing, or if you are not sure if this thermostat will work in your situation, the app or online tools this company provides answer all your questions and give you the reassurance you need. I was very impressed with the clear, simple, detailed, step-by-step instructions, which included optional video links for each step. I also needed to talk with a person from Sensi 3 different times as I installed 10 thermostats at a school. We chose them because of the simplicity of the design and the enormous quantity of professional guidance on the install. It is so impressive that a company in this business market still provides a phone call to a human who knows what they are talking about and is very helpful. If you are not sure which thermostat to buy, especially if you are looking for something in a business setting, I would recommend Sensi. Ease of use means no one will mess up the programming. And the app means you have a very easy way to catch those units that someone in the building kicked on and didn't bother to turn off when they left! This is the one you want!
Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat works grate. Easy installation, just follow the instructions after downloading the app. I went with this thermostat since I only hade 4 wires and did not feel like pulling the fifth wire. Works from my phone or tablet flawlessly. My brother and his son have this same Sensi wi-fi thermostat and have never hade any problems with it no mater where they were in the country. I have never hade any problem with it neither since installation. Scheduling you days and times are also very easy to do. This thermostat is all you need. Did not need to pay high dollars for a smart thermostat to learn my habits. Schedule is set and if needs changing can do from where ever I am at the time. Highly recommend this Thermostat.
I tried two other brands. The first was faulty, I do not know if it was the unit or the software. I returned it. Went with another brand that had Alexa built in. Unfortunately, the other Alexa devices in the home would only recognize the thermostat on an intermittent basis. It was returned.I was ready to go with an old school thermostat, but decided to give Sensi a try. So far, so good. It has been a few weeks and Sensi has worked flawlessly. This unit can be powered by a C wire, or batteries. So if your home does not have a C wire, it will still work.It has been very nice to have the thermostat controlled by Alexa. Especially in the middle of the night and you don’t want to get out of bed.Should something go awry, I will update this review. However, based on the few weeks it has been installed and the need to return two other brands, I highly recommend Sensi.
I had to replace my thermostat and chose this one from Emerson. It has a WiFi enabled app that can be linked to Alexa. The app has videos explaining how to uninstall the old thermostat, mount the new one and change the wiring. I was able to use the existing mounting holes in the wall. There is a little level in the base plate to help mount it perfectly, no exterior level needed. I only needed the husband to go look at the heater and take a picture of the wiring. He needed to add one of the unused wires from the cable (there were 2) to the terminal called 'C' and I did the same at the thermostat. There are only 3 wires on the heater. Works perfectly and I created my heating schedules on the app. I can get the information from Alexa and give her instructions about the temperature settings. PGE also had a $50 dollar rebate so I am happy!
I like the product. It's a good thermostat, easy to read and use. It's also easy to physically install. However, the instructions for connecting the thermostat to wifi omit important information for iPhone users. I did not want the Sensi app integrated with the Apple HomeKit app, but the printed instructions led to a "HomeKit" syncing error notice. Bypassing HomeKit required further help from the Sensi Support team. The support person was very helpful, and since the steps she gave me are not intuitive, I'm attempting to pass them on for those of you who may want to connect Sensi directly to wifi without using an intermediary smart-home app (e.g., HomeKit). First, you'll need to remove the Sensi faceplate and install batteries so that the display works without a connection with a common wire. Use the Sensi app normally, and when you it asks you to select "menu-mode," the faceplate will show "00" instead of "11" (as shown when faceplate is connected). This will then allow you to proceed through a direct connection to your wifi, and avoid seeing the "HomeKit" sync error notice. I hope this will be helpful to others. Also, a shout out to the support person who helped me through this.
