The large display, control wheel interface and free Android/iOS application offer intuitive functionality both online and at the device. The LUX/GEO gives the user full control with easy to understand programming and built-in radius geo-fencing to automatically save energy when the user is out of the house.

          I replaced an older 7 day programmable thermostat that had LCD display problems and was looking for a thermostat that was easier to program than my old one. It is less expensive that most other WiFi thermostats that can cost twice as much (or more) because it doesn't have as many features, like a touchscreen. It works using WiFi and an app on my iPhone and is easy to program. If you don't want to use the WiFi app you don't have to, it is programmable on the unit itself. I like using the app because it tells you how long the air conditioning runs each hour and the total run time each day (I haven't used the furnace yet). It is battery operated if you don't have a C wire. All in all I am Read More

          Does the digital temperature and backlight stay on all the time, or does it go dark when not activated?

          I want to be able to control the thermostat using my phone/tablet when inside my house but do not want this device communicating outside my home.
          Do I have to have this device connected to the (public) Internet to be able to control it via my phone?

          Thanks

          Answer: 
          Your thermostat's connection is password protected. When you set up your internet connection the thermostat will display a password which you will use to connect your phone/table to the thermostat.

          My existing thermostat only has 2 wires

          I have 2 thermostats which have only 2 wires. One thermostat controls a gas furnace, the other controls a gas fireplace.
          Will your thermostat work with either/both?
          Would it need an added C wire for either/both?

          Answer: 
          I have only two wires and have to use batteries since I don't have the extra C wire. My previous 7 day programmable thermostat also ran on batteries.
          I don't know if it will work with the fireplace, but it should work with a gas furnace. The installation instructions explain what it can and cannot be used for. The instructions are available online at the following internet Read More
