Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea but issues Have had this device for a while and really liked it, but recently it has just become frustrating. Biggest issue is when I switch to disabled to turn off water heater when out of town the unit disconnects. This requires me to go to the water heater and manually reconnect to my WiFi. There have been no power outages or WiFi reboots and no other device loses connection. This makes this product pretty useless to control my water heater remotely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it The module only lets you turn water temp down to 110degrees faranheight. Some reviews say you don’t need module, in Canada you definitely need this if you want to turn HWT on or off, from away. When you plug in module you now must manage HWT from WiFI, Easy enough to set up. Make sure you have a Wifi signal where your HWT is located.

You have to purchase this in order for the Rheem hybrid water heater to connect to the app. Nowhere in the Rheem paperwork does it state this. Not thrilled about that but app is ok.

I was worried that this would be like many of the other electronic components that require you to hunt down firmware updates or other random things as soon as you get it out of the package. No such drama with this and everything worked exactly how it was supposed to.

Has the Apple app been recently updated? The reviews when downloading the Apple App say the App is useless. If the App doesn’t work, why buy the module. 

Asked by: Gina
I installed this water heater last November in one of our short term rental properties. I read the reviews as well however it works just as advertised and have not had a single issues switching it from home and away. There is a little setup on the initial installation but if you follow the instructions to the letter it works perfectly. Ps - we’re iPhone users.

Can I track the hot water heater's power usage with this module? It would be really nice to know how much power is actually used for hot water heating.

Asked by: Belcat
Hello Belcat, The econet module does not provide electrical usage statistics however, it can tell you how much hot water is left in the tank and therefore how likely the unit is to run again which you could use to extrapolate how much energy will be used during that given time period.
