PROS

  • The thermostat display is bright and full of information.
  • This thermostat is as accurate as Honeywell claims--within 1 degree.
  • The display background can change colors to fit in with your home decor.

CONS

  • Installation can be difficult for an inexperienced DIYer. The thermostat requires a 5-wire setup for connection, and not all home heating units have the necessary configuration.
  • The app logs out a lot.
  • It comes with only one size wall plate.
Honeywell’s Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is designed to compete with the popular Nest thermostat. Unlike that product, Honeywell's product has a traditional design, and its bright display offers far more information, including outdoor temperature and humidity, day and date, and--of course--indoor temperature. The display is customizable so you can change the color to match your home decor. The Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is controllable by touch screen or voice and with Web, Android and iOS apps. The company recently announced that its thermostat works with IFTTT--a Web service that makes it easy to sync with other smart devices.

Installation is where this project can become a little difficult. The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat is designed to be used with a five wire setup because the thermostat is powered by the HVAC system and not batteries.
