What's New in Version 3.0.5
- Fixed an issue with the mode selector when available modes is cool only
Connected, but not like Nest.
Take a look at the Nest app. So pretty, so useful, so easy. Now take a look at your app: old, outdated, and lacking functionality. I give it three stars, because yes, you can change your thermostats' temperatures and mode from anywhere, but you can't alter schedules, set what vacation mode does, or see whole-house runtimes. Unlike nests, your thermostats do not learn from the user's to save energy while keeping us cool, and they are boxy and unattractive on the walls. Better than standard thermostats, but not as good as a Nest or an Ecobee. Start taking cues from Nest, Venstar, and I will love you.
This doesn't even mention rookie mistakes: we set our screens to fully dimmed (off) while we don't use them, and messages do not make the backlight turn on, so you wouldn't notice a message until—by chance—we get up and change the temperature. We don't see messages or alerts for days!! So make it light up on incoming alerts/messages. And we still can't see the outside temp on our 3-year-old connected ColorTouch?
Simple, Functional, and works smoothly
People complaining about the app being outdated and needing their hand held every step of the way are missing the point of this app with this stat. If I want the outside temp I can check another app, or walk outside. I love my T8750, it works flawlessly from my phone to my system with the shortest response time I've seen yet. I wanted wifi for the convenience to change temps on my phone, I chose Venstar because it works without all the smart BS that goes along in learning stats. We have a Bryant Evolution Connex system and that is the smartest stat on the market and the biggest pain, when it learns it takes control, this gives it back to us. Thank you for a functional product that provides the user with ease and control over their system.
This is an excellent iPhone app it will let you do most everything you would want to do with the the
Using with the Venstar T3800 and the Venstar ACC-VWF1 WIFI module.
Allows me to monitor and control my Venstar T3800 thermostat from anywhere in the world using my iPhone. The Venstar app is simple to use without a lot of unnecessary fluff. With the iPhone app, you can raise or lower the temperature, change the thermostat from Heating, Cooling or Auto, and control the fan (aka blower) independently if you wish.
The iPhone app will also let you observe the running time of your equipment. The Venstar Skyport iPhone app allows you to have up to 10 different properties, with up to 10 thermostats at each property.
I LOVE the red/green LED indicator on the Venstar thermostat, it is a unique feature that I simply cannot live without. (The LED indicator allows me to know what the thermostat is doing laying in bed with just one eye open. )
I had occasion to send their technical support a question. I received a courteous and useful answer (in perfect English), about 12 hours later.
