Honeywell Wifi Thermostat simply works
I purchased the RTH8580WF and installed it within 30 minutes. There are instructional videos and very simple instructions. You do not have to be tech savvy or especially handy. Once installed, I have been able to control the temperature at my thermostats from anywhere. While I bought it so that I don't have to get out of bed to change the temperature, I am also able to use it while traveling anywhere in the world. I was going to purchase a much more expensive tech-modern thermostat but after reading these reviews, went with the tried and true Honeywell model. I am glad I did. The app is very easy to use, completely intuitive and quick. I change the temp on my iPhone and the unit receives the change within three seconds. If there is any room for improvement, it would be, as others have said, better reporting of stats and a nicer looking wall unit. I too would like to know whether my unit is operating properly by viewing run time through the day. No big deal though. I am thrilled with this product. This is one of those products that gives you confidence as soon as you open the quick-start guide. You know you are in good hands as the author/developers walk you through setup and usage. Thanks Honeywell!

The app and thermostat are useful but really don't live up to the potential of a modern web enabled system. It is little more than porting a classic, first generation programmable thermostat to remote control by internet app. Just think of the features they could have added, like control based on current outside temperature - why have A/C on at all if it dropped to 65 degrees outside? That would be a big energy saver here in my area where it does often cool off that much at night in the summer.
I also take issue with their deceptive marketing and packaging. Some of their models have local weather on the thermostat itself - very cool. When i went to buy locally, the package mentions local weather and shows a picture of it displayed. Turns out my model does not have that. even the support guy thought it did but after far too long found out that it doesn't - the local weather display is from the online interface if i log on thru the web. if i'm on the web, I can choose any number of weather sites so it's irrelevant and should not be featured in such a prominent way on the package. By that point it was already installed and I had written wiring notes on it inside with a Sharpie so I couldn't return it and exchange it for the next model up that shows the local temp on the thermostat itself.
I have this installed at a remote weekend house that has good internet service. I've had it installed about 2 months.
For my purposes it works great- it has never disconnected from my wifi and I can actually see the screen when I touch it to get the backlight to go to high bright. After a few minutes it dims down but doesn't go black- I think there is an option for it to black out on idle but I haven't looked at that. My key need is remote use- make sure it is on/off and the ability to remotely see room temp, which I can.
A few improvements? Maybe an indicator to show when heat/a/c is actually on (I use the circulate mode which randomly runs the fan to circulate the air). Another- run hours for a/c and heating units would be useful. But in general this thermostat does exactly what I need it to do, and it isn't so complicated you can't use it. Even my 9 year old can go in and turn it on/off and adjust the temp.
I'm about to put two into my house so will be interesting to see how they all interface.
Kudos for not overcomplicating the control layout- the program is very user friendly and I hope it stays that way.
