Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat

This Wi-Fi thermostat connects with your home’s wireless network, so you can control the system with a mobile app. The mobile app works on Android and iOS smartphones, and you can control your home’s temperature from anywhere. This is especially helpful when you forget to set the thermostat to away mode. You can also control the Emerson Sensi through an online portal. It is compatible with the Amazon Echo and Wink app, so if you own one, you can control this thermostat with your voice.

This is an affordable thermostat, and you can install it by yourself with relative ease. The unit has a built-in level, and you can check for system compatibility online. This ensures it is installed properly and works with your HVAC system. The thermostat has a basic black and white interface, but it doesn’t look dated. Its simple design makes it easy to use. The menu is very basic, with buttons that access Mode, Fan and Schedule settings.

The app has more functions than the thermostat’s physical interface, but it is equally easy to use. You can scroll through the menu options and program up to nine daily schedules. For instance, you can create different schedules for winter and summer. If you have one thermostat for your home and another for your vacation home, you can set each thermostat individually through your smartphone. With programmed daytime, nighttime and seasonal temperature settings, you can conserve energy and see noticeable savings on your utility bills.

Emerson’s technical support is average. The unit includes a three-year warranty, which puts it on par with the best devices in our thermostat review. If you choose professional installation, Emerson boosts the Sensi’s warranty to five years. You can contact Emerson technical support by phone and email. The company does not have online forums or live chat support. Here are some of the features of these amazing app:

No Other Wi-Fi Thermostat Works With More Heating And Cooling Systems

When we set out to design a Wi-Fi solution, compatibility was our top priority. We think you’ll agree, a Wi-Fi thermostat that does not require a common wire and uses 2 standard AA batteries is a solution you can install with complete confidence. That’s why we designed the Sensi thermostat to work with the existing wiring on gas, oil, geothermal, heat pump and radiant heat systems – up to 4 stages of heating and 2 stages of cooling. A common wire is only required on 2-wire heat-only or AC-only systems.
