- No Batteries required! Review by Don
No Batteries required!
Works well with Insteon hub and Amazon echo. Hoping Echo will add even more flexibility, but right now just the fact that I can tell Alexa to "set thermostat 2 degrees lower" without having to get out of bed in the middle of the night is worth the price paid. Pretty easy to install, even if the directions are a little vague. If I had a complaint, it would be those vague instructions. Other than that, love it, especially the fact that no batteries are required.

- Cannot get them to work Review by Franz
Cannot get them to work
I have 5 wires RH,RC,Y G W1, installed as instructed and unit came up. When setting to test heat, unit would go dark then re-boot, go dark, re-boot again and again.
I had gotten 2 units and assumed I got a bad Tstat. The second unit failed the same way. I reinstalled my old unit and it worked like a charm.
Called support, they were no help, very friendly but gave me really bad information, saying that RC wire is a common wire. RC is hot wire for cooling. Ran a common wire, still no help. Wasted a day running up and down between boiler in basement and Tstat on 1st floor. My AR861 switching relay would pick then drop after an second and continue to cycle this way until I powered off the boiler.
The Never got it to work, will be returning them.

- Review 2441th Review by If you don't have a 5 wire system prepare to open journey wallet
If you don't have a 5 wire system prepare to open journey wallet
Purchased two insteon termostats for $100 each. I go to install them. Read the instructions, remove my old thermostat and see that I have a 4 wire system whereas the thermostat requires a 5wire system. The instructions do indicate that you need a add in wire adapter, however that is all they say. Reading the instructions again I come across a sentance that refers me to the website for the instruction manual. I get to the site find the manual and it tells me to go to smart home.com and order a adapter. I go to the smart home website and find out that the adapter costs $25 plus shipping. Now it's going to cost me over $50 more to get these things to work. I call smart home customer service and I get a recording telling me there is a 40 minute wait.
Nowhere on their website for the thermostat they indicate the termostats are only for a 5 wire system and you need to pay 25% for for it to work on four wire systems. Do you homework before ordering from these guys.

- Convenient Review by jmight
I found I was able to program these units to lock out the face buttons, basically removed the A/C vs Heat wars going on in the office. Great feature.

- Not all option available on app Review by Salar
Not all option available on app
Good piece of equipment but needs some improvements.
- It's hard to read the LCD from angle compare to the old digital ones.
- All options are not available in app and most of the settings need to be done on Thermostat - Like day Modes, Time and Day setting (Which is a default features in all WiFi thermostats)

- Beware This Thermostat In Some Situations Review by Kevin
Beware This Thermostat In Some Situations
This thermostat is apparently susceptible to voltage regulations issues, e.g., if the furnace control board provides more or less than the specified 24 volts AC, this unit will not work reliably. The unit completely froze (would not accept any button inputs, even factory reset) with the heat off and there was no way to turn on the heat without replacing the thermostat. it also has the screen go blank when the heat comes on, to return the display and the backlight a few minutes later. My original Honeywell programmable thermostats had no such issues.

- Works but not quite as resposive as I'd like. Review by XrXca
Works but not quite as resposive as I'd like.
When I installed it it kept losing power, turns out that was some bad solder connections on the furnace fan control board, after replacing that everything is working fine.
It seems to have a wider range for cut in/out than the old one, so I see peaks and valleys on a temperature graph that weren't there before, although I do wonder if going back to Fahrenheit from Celsius would help a bit.
I do have to say that the "Need 5 Wires" mantra is only applicable IF you are using both Heating and Cooling, with just one or the other (usually Heating) you can just drop the other connection from the equation, and four wires is all you need.
And I'd second the complaint about needing to press a button to turn on the back light, and that changing the settings rather than ignoring the first button press.

- Mandatory accessory warning! Review by macsrwe
Mandatory accessory warning!
Before you buy this thermostat, check the wiring to your current thermostat. If it has four wires (most older homes do), you WILL need to add the Venstar Add-a-Wire unit to your order, or you will not be able to install it. Once you have all the needed equipment on hand, installation goes smoothly.

- Works well with Universal Devices ISY994 Review by John
Works well with Universal Devices ISY994
The information indicates this works with the Insteon Hub, but I use the Universal Devices ISy994. This thermostat is supported by ISY and works very well!

- Half the price of a Nest Review by serg
Half the price of a Nest
This might not have the bells and whistles that the Nest touts but for half the price I get to remotely control my thermostat. I've heard that most Nest users end up not liking Nest's inability to learn. I should clarify that while the Insteon thermostat is $149 (vs Nest at $249), you do need an Insteon hub ($39 at the time I write this). That's still less than the Nest AND I can add Insteon wall switches and outlets to remotely control other lights and appliances around the house.
