The thermostat is amazing now that it’s operating. A true steal that is really simple to set up and offers all the essential features I want. I only wished it had a “Hold” feature, which would have allowed you to set the temperature at a level that would prevent the calendar settings from overriding it. For instance, I would like the heat to be reduced to 62 and remain there until I manually adjust it back to the schedule if I would be gone for 12 hours. If I have a schedule established for that 12-hour period without the “Hold” option, the Hold temperature will be changed to the scheduled temperature. For instance, if I leave my house at midday, I’d like to conserve energy. I want to set a “Hold” temperature of 62 degrees for that block since I plan to return at 10 PM. However, this thermostat will alter the 62°F I set back to the scheduled temperature at 2 PM if I have a schedule where my heat is set at 70°F each day at 2 PM.
I’ll start by discussing installation before moving on to the review itself. This smart thermostat is fine overall. I wouldn’t grade it as an A+, but I also wouldn’t grade it as an F. It successfully completes the initial test and keeps the temperature steady. But generally speaking, you expect more from a smart thermostat, and this one is just sort of adequate in that regard. You get what you pay for because it’s inexpensive and pretty basic.

Love the packaging; it reminds me of how the NEST arrived with everything you needed when it was originally installed; the only other tools I need were a drill and a harmer, but this is typical for this install. The C (common) wire is now the subject that everyone finds most confusing. No matter which firm you choose to deal with when upgrading to a smart thermostat, here is where you need to do your research on what you need. For me, it was really simple to get my spilled unit—a boiler and air conditioner—to start and complete within 30 minutes on my second-floor flat since I had an additional cable. Right now, I use a 24-volt transformer on my first level.
I bought this item for a number of reasons, chief among them being that my Google Nest stopped connecting to the WiFi. Now, typically I would just replace broken equipment. No matter how much debugging I did, the second Google Nest that had the same issue (primarily because the home already had one installed and it was so simple to pop on the other one) never connected again. The fact that my home already has a significant number of Amazon devices (Ring cameras, Ring doorbells, Astro, and Alexa), making the decision to choose an Amazon brand product a no-brainer, was another factor in my decision.
