Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for the features! When looking for a programmable thermostat for my condo, I did a lot of research to find the features I wanted for the best price. The Sensi was the right choice! My only concern was that I could install it to replace my 20+ year old basic thermostat so I contacted the company that does HVAC work in my building. They were asking over $600 just to install it! I decided to attempt it myself and it couldn't have been easier. Within 30 minutes I had installed and programmed it for the week. The required Sensi app provided step by step instructions which were clear and easy to follow. And, no "C" wire required!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best for existing installs I did a lot of research as I did not have a c-wire in the main thermostat in my home. Nest and ecobee wouldn't work. Sensi didn't need a c wire, but it did need a relay which Sensi sent me (free of charge). Aside from being the most flexible wifi thermostat I could find for existing installations, there is no learning curve for people who want to operate it from the panel. I don't have to go through any sort of goofy tutorial with visitors who want to control the temperature of the guest room. From a design perspective it looks like any other thermostat - it doesn't draw attention to itself. I have three Sensi's in place in my home for about 5 months now. I recently bought and installed one for my parents in law. None have had to be reconnected to network as one of the previous posters has indicated. It does not "learn" like the Nests, nor does it have remote sensors to simulate multi-zone installs like the ecobee3. Scheduling is OK, and the app is OK - they could add the ability to "group" thermostats and control them in unison. But If all you want is to control your thermostat from anywhere in the world, you'll do very well with this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensi Cannot Even Sense Room Temperature Accuratel The unit has several issues the most important is that it cannot accurately sense room temperature. Also, it does not display tenths of degrees so you have no idea how tightly the temperature is being held. Third, the Sensi App does not work with IOS 9 so if you have iPhone 4s or 5 and didn't upgrade the app does not work. The unit has no capability to update it's software so any bugs are all yours courtesy of Sensi. Support tries to help but the product is so constraining in it's design and maintainability it's useless to provide support beyond simple configuration. My 2 cents is stay far away from this product period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but requires a smartphone to operate Simple to install and does not require a C wire for direct electrical connection. The complimentary mobile app is easy to use, although the scheduling feature can be bit confusing at first. Multiple people can download the app but have to login using the same account. The thermostat itself has limited features so programming schedules can only be done via the mobile app. Wish there was additional features built into the unit for programming. Great to use if you're tech savvy with your smartphone, but if you want manual override you will need to invest in a more expensive thermostat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remotely controllable and Alexa compatible I had some problems with installation. The tech service number was a great help and stepped me through to correct why I couldnt get it connected. Basically, I needed to turn off the 5G network on my phone so that only the 2.4G wifi was on.Once I did that it worked perfect. I have multiple daytime schedules running. I am able to change the temperature remotely outside of the home. I dropped the temperature to 15C while I was on vacation and then set it back to normal when I got back from the airport. It is compatible with Alexa. I can give Alexa voice commands to change the temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation! After searching online for an affordable thermostat I found good reviews on the Sensi. I was a bit worried about the install as I have never done anything like that before. I didn't have to worry, the installation was super easy after downloading the app. It led me through everything step by step. Now it's installed and I love being able to control the temperature of the house using an app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest installation! With rebate; only $21! This was by far the easiest installation ever! Emerson has an amazing app that walks you though the install. My thermostat was installed start to finish in less than 20 minutes, and works great! At the time of purchase, there was a $75 rebate on the thermostat through Home Depot and Enbridge gas. An additional $6 energy rebate was applied, along with a $10 email subscription discount, so the total I paid for a $109 thermostat, with tax was $21!! You can't go wrong!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PSA: can only set Celsius to 1 degree increment Does everything as advertised. Super easy install with the app. I bought a transformer plug to run it because I only have a boiler with no C wire. Anyway, the thing it fails at is that you can't set the temperature to half degree increments, e.g. you can only set to 22 or 23, not 22.5 C. My old $15 thermostat allowed it! Having said that, it's very accurate and your house will stay at 22C if you set it there, you wont feel the temperature swing before it kicks in. So it has the sensitivity to detect changes in half/quarter degrees C, you just can't choose it. I guess you can use F for fine tuning, but we're in Canada.

Is the Sensi Wi Fi thermostat easy to install

Asked by: Bren
Yes, it's as easy as any other thermostat install

Why are batteries required, why not use the power source. A coin battery type for memory backup would be a better option.

Asked by: K9Bob
Hello K9Bob. Thanks for your question. The Wi-Fi radio needs a strong battery backup. The thermostat uses the common wire as power and if one is installed then the batteries are only back up.

I'm considering purchasing the Sensi. Please let me know if the Geofencing feature can be turned off and if there are any motion sensor features that turn the display on as you approach. Thanks. Jay S

Asked by: JAY S
Hello Jay S, Geofencing is one of two scheduling options. You can choose to use geofencing, regular scheduling, or turn all scheduling off and hold a specific manual set point. We do not currently have any kind of motion sensor with our product.

Do you have to have something like Alexa or Wink or can you monitor the thermostat via a computer that you have left on in your home? Is there software provided or available to support this?

Asked by: Hotrod2
No you don't need Alexa . you can download an app on your phone. From sensi to monitor the thermostat through WiFi . you will need a smart phone or tablet to set it up.

I now know that I don't need the C wire but will the FAN work at FULL SPEED when the air conditioning unit is running?

Asked by: George
I have a bi-energy furnace, oil/electric + seperate A/C. My A/C and furnace for that matter only has ONE speed when heating and cooling (a/c) it is as fast as my previous analog thermostat. Works very well.

Will this work on a dual stage (2 speed) furnace blower?

Asked by: Blobb1
Hi, thanks for your question. At this time, the Sensi thermostat is able to work with only with single speed fan systems. You can use our Wire Picker tool to identify if your system is compatible: https://webapps.emerson.com/resources/wire-picker.aspx

Can I schedule this to be on for 4 days, and then a lower temp for 4 days? Or can i only schedule by days of the week

Asked by: Jd90
I haven’t used the schedule much because I can control the temp remotely. So if u want to make a schedule then go back in four days remotely to change it that can work
