    Works on older systems with adaptor

    • Written by Mark M from Trumbull

    I bought 3 of these for my 3 zone home. I had an older furnace control box (Honeywell TrollATemp MM-3). These units will NOT work with this box so I had to buy a new control box. I bought a Honeywell HZ311. About $130 but if you don't have experience with electrical work, you will need an HVAC guy to install so add about $150-$200. The next problem with my old system was too few wires going to the thermostats. You need to get power to the thermostats (the "C" wire). Rather than pulling wires, I found iDevices offers an "add a wire" kit. It basically allows you to "gain" a wire by multi-plexing one of the existing wires. I had to buy 3 of these at about $30 each.

    Even adding a new control box, 3 add a wire boxes and the 3 thermostats, I was cheaper than buying 3 Nests or other high end thermostat and these have worked well. I control everything through Apple's Home app. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 starts is one of the displays has a few pixels that have gone dark at the bottom of the display. It's not too noticeable and doesn't interfere with the normal readouts but the units are less than a year old so I'm hoping it's just a fluke. The units will also report humidity so you can ask Siri "What's the humidity in the living room" etc. I don't believe you can use the info to trigger anything but I haven't dug into the feature that much.

    Other than that, they are very easy to use and read.

    One other note is I don't think there is any way to program without a smart phone app so you can't use the devices and program from the thermostat itself. That might be a disadvantage to some that don't want to rely on a smart phone app.

    Have 2, Easy Install, Work Great

    • Written by Wm. C from Bristow

    Install went smoothly. Operation seems to be flawless. Their software for the extras works great. Automated with Home (HomeKit) and my Apple TV to adjust at times and when people are home or not. Siri works so well with them I hardly ever touch the physical Box.

    For me, heat pump with emergency heat capability upstairs, down stairs regular heat and AC unit.

    These will also control the humidifier and dehumidifier based upon humidity triggers it seems. Now thinking of adding both de’ and humidifier to my home HVAC.

    iDevices is the only smart device that is actual smart. I love this thermostat. Everything actually works great with apple and amazon, and you don't even have to have any kind of hub. I love it.

    Superb Tech Support

    • Written by Thomas G from Rockwall

    Changed my WIFI hardware and needed help to connect my iDevices Thermostat to my new WIFI system. Called Tech Support and after a completely unexpected 2 second hold time, I reached an actual human being who competently and capably talked me through establishing connectivity. And, she spoke superb english!

    Thermostat works like a charm. Can control by either my Apple Home app or iDevices app. Scheduling is easier on iDevices app and is a simple intuitive process.

    Great thermostat

    • Written by Jeremy K from New Holstein

    I checked around looking at several wifi thermostats and have purchased other iDevice products and went with this thermostat. It was very easy to install. The setup process was smooth and easy thru the iDevice app and once the iDevice app finished setup it works seamlessly with HomeKit. I have my AppleTV set up as a hub and can control the temperature from anywhere.

    I highly recommend this thermostat if you want to be able to control or check on your homes temperature wherever you are. It's very easy to set up scenes to have the temperature change throughout the day and night.

    This thermostat is priced very reasonable for what it does. If you haven't tried and iDevice products yet this should be your first.

    Oh, and one more thing. Their customer service is top notch. I've called with questions and they helped me out and were available when needed.

    Convenient to adjust temperature

    • Written by Teresa B from Puyallup

    We've had our iDevice thermostat for about 6 months and really like it. It's a bit difficult to figure out the programing on the app, but once we got it set, it's great and works quite well. When installing it we had a few issues as we didn't have all the wires that were needed, so had to have someone come and help with that so it would control the furnace an heat pump. We love the ability to adjust when we aren't home...along with the lights that we have on other iDevices!
