    The Programmable Thermostat is the exclusive portal for Aprilaire® 4-Zone Intelligent Zone Control System (#3041), which acts as a central wiring hub and information interchange for the system with a premium thermostat in each zone. Information is shared among thermostats through the 4-Zone Comfort Control System to optimize performance and convenience; you can turn on/off, adjust or simply view any thermostat from any other thermostat.

    The four stars if for the product not the company. The Thermostat was the right one but I guess over the years they have changed the wiring. I had no way of knowing this when I purchased it. I did check the menu as mentioned somewhere to make sure I had to correct version of the instructions. My system was installed about 5 years ago and there just must have been some changes. Anyway, I was able to make it work (I am a licensed electrician) and we had heat within minutes. Smarthome delivered on time and the product was as promised.

    A very good quality item, easy to set and manage. I especially like the ability to make changes to all thermostats connected to the controller.
