- 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.

- Wonderful device Review by George the architect
George the architect
I have installed these thermostats in two of my homes and I can monitor and adjust the temperature and monitor the humidity from my I phone anywhere in the world. If you gave a five wire system great. If not use the add a wire adapter to make a four wire system compatible. Also works great as a programmable thermostat for two day plus five day or seven day programmable options.

- Review 24441Th Review by Mark
Have installed a number of these units both using 5 wire and 4 wire (using add a wire) and all have worked as advertised. Some units need to be calibrated but most are very close. I use universal devices to control and really appreciate the humidity readout here in Michigan.

- Works well; but make sure you have 5+ wires to your thermostat Review by Luke
Works well; but make sure you have 5+ wires to your thermostat
- Looks nice
- Temperature and humidity readings are accurate (I cross-checked it with some other sensors)
- Clear labeling to make install easy
- Requires 5 wires to your HVAC system (need to run new wire or get an adapter to make it work)
- Doesn't have a good way to turn on the backlight. It comes on when you press a button on the thermostat (such as the temperature up button) but that means you have to increase the temperature to get the backlight on. I believe newer ones have fixed this by making the set button accessible without opening the cover.

- Excellent unit Review by Health Highway
I installed this unit a year ago. This needs a common wire and fortunately I used a spare wire coming to thermostst and connected to common on the furnace. It has been working great bi an access and control temp from my iPhone from anywhere.

- Works for me Review by Timmcd1
Works for me
I've had this thermostat installed for well over a year now, with no real problems. It's been under ISY control the last six months. My only complaint is that in order to get the display backlight to turn on,one must press a button, changing a setting. The firmware should be updated so that the first button press only turns on the backlight.
