    Update #2 (2 Dec): Just a quick update to report that the thermostat has been working great now for over three weeks… no glitches, no wifi disconnects, and no reason to believe there will be any issues. The connection to Alexa is also great and very responsive. Very happy with this choice for a new thermostat!Update (10 Nov): I’ve updated my rating to 5 stars now. The Support team contacted me by email and provided a detailed rundown on configuration settings available under advanced settings. It turns out that the Sensi had auto-configured to a different type of furnace than I have, so once I made the appropriate changes I was able to reconnect the Green (fan) wire and the unit works properly. I’m not sure why this information isn’t provided in the setup documentation, but I appreciated the Support team providing a courteous, prompt and detailed response.I also loaded the Alexa skill for Sensi, which set up quickly and it works well. I can now inquire about temperature or change the setting by voice. And of course when away from home, it’s nice to have a single app (the Alexa app) where I can communicate with furnaces, light switches and electrical outlets if I want to.The bottom line after having the unit in place for several days: I like it and am rating it 5 stars. Yes, it was a little painful getting here, but it’s doing what it’s supposed to, it’s very easily programmed with any schedule you like, the wifi continues to function normally, I like being able to check my phone from anywhere and see what the furnace is doing, and I really like the way it looks on the wall, including the color change when it turns on the furnace and the dimming feature that provides a dim display of temperature that isn’t overly bright or annoying at night (of course, you can shut this off). I like it enough to overlook the start-up issues. Providing it continues to work properly in the coming weeks and months, it’s exactly what I was looking for.Original review (8 Nov): Although there are mixed reviews of this thermostat, many of them appeared to be software related, and software can be updated if the company stays on top of issues, so I thought I’d give it a try anyway. It’s definitely a nice, sleek looking unit, and programming/using it is straightforward and very flexible as you can set up virtually unlimited schedules.Hooking it up was pretty easy, as there is normally no real rocket science to thermostats and furnace control. My upstairs furnace is about 18 years old, and control requires minimal wiring. So while the original thermostat had 4 wires connected (Red for 24 VAC power, White for heat call, Yellow for cooling call, and Green for fan control), I had no common (C) connection available at the wall. Fortunately, the cable had six wires in it, so a 10 minute visit to the attic (where the furnace is located) and I had one of the spares connected to the furnace C terminal.Fired the furnace back up and the Sensi came to life… and this is where some minor troubles began. Setup to wifi requires doing a little configuring using the Sensi app. I installed the app on my Samsung (Android) phone, which completed quickly. Unfortunately, when the Sensi wifi transmitter was supposed to be transmitting, the app was unable to find it. Checking for all wifi signals on my phone, there was no signal from anything other than my router and a weak router signal from a neighbor. I tried switching the Sensi wifi on/off a few times with no results. Then I found a system reset option, so I tried that and the display simply hung… no reset, and no ability to do anything.I figured this might be a good time to call the Support number, which I did. They responded within a couple of minutes (which is great), and the solution was a power cycle, accomplished by simply removing the Sensi from its base on the wall and putting it back after 5-10 seconds. This time, the wifi came up as it should, so I hung up with Support and I was able to configure the thermostat. I noticed the room temperature indicated 77 deg, which was about 9 degrees higher than it actually was, based upon two other digital thermometers that both read exactly the same (68 deg). Then, about 5 minutes later, after tinkering with system options in the app and finding a temperature offset adjustment that provides only up to plus or minus 5 deg (well short of 9 deg), suddenly the Sensi went offline and the initial wifi setup screen returned on the unit. At this point, I could have just gone thru the wifi setup again, but with the significant temp inaccuracy, I thought I’d call the Support guys again and discuss what was happening. Again, they picked up within just a few minutes.The solution here was trying a system factory reset, and this time the splash screen came up after half a second rather than hang like the first time that I tried it earlier. Apparently, the factory reset also initiates a calibration, which for some reason can take a full day to complete… but it doesn’t impact being able to use the thermostat. So, following the reset, I hung up and completed the setup again. Things were back to normal, and within a couple of hours the indicated room temperature slowly moved downward to within 2 deg of those other thermometers. By the next morning, it was still 2 deg off, so I selected the -2 deg offset and all was well. So clearly, the calibration function works fairly well.After operating for a while, I found that the cycle rate was much too fast as the furnace would start back up shortly after shutting down, so I adjusted that to the “slow” setting. After letting it run overnight, I discovered in the morning that I no longer had heat! After a little checking, it turns out the flame sensor in the furnace was no longer detecting the flame, which after a few seconds shuts the flame off. After three such cycles, it locks the furnace. This wasn’t initially apparent because the Sensi wants to start the blower fan when it calls for heat, so it sounds like the furnace is running… except it’s blowing cool air. Furnace electronics are designed to allow the furnace to start up and develop a little heat prior to starting the fan… this is unnecessarily overridden by the Sensi. My belief is that this air flow starting before the furnace ignited must have had some effect on an old and somewhat dirty flame sensor. Cleaning the sensor fixed the start-up problem, but it still makes no sense to blow cold air out the ducts on start-up. So for now, I simply disconnected the Green fan wire attachment in the Sensi base, and everything is working normal. I sent a summary of this concern to Sensi in writing, questioning whether there’s an app setting I missed, or this unit (when set for gas heat) is defective, or perhaps this feature is a design flaw. I’m awaiting a response.One other note: there’s apparently at least one little bug in the app… occasionally when you’re connected to a specific thermostat and you use the back arrow button to go to the previous screen that lists all thermostats (of course I only have the one), the app will display it’s “working” indicator (an animated blue target looking thing) continuously and not take you back to that screen. Killing the app and starting it up again returns things to normal. It’s minor, but it has done it a few times and it would be more pleasant if it always worked.So after a rough start, things seem to be working, albeit with my little Green wire modification. I’ll update this review as I learn more or if there’s a failure anytime soon.

    Original Review: Aug 2020This is a replacement for a Bryant/Carrier T6-NHP 2 wire thermostat used on a carrier Air Handler and a Bryant condenser unit. My problem was that the air conditioner would never stop once it started. I decided that this job is a “Do It Yourself” job due to the pandemic and since I am a retired Electrical Engineer, debugged it on my own.Not knowing much about HVAC, to get started, I had to dig into how it all works. After quite a bit of learning and diagnosing, I finally determined that the old thermostat was malfunctioning. Probably a sticky relay.The first thermostat I tried was the Honeywell RTH7600D which has a dated appearance, and had limited options for different kinds of systems. It would not work with my 2 stage heat pump. Oddly, there was no option to invert the O signal in heat pump mode. Returned.The Sensi cost more but looked more promising. It arrived with virtually no instructions. The idea is you look at web videos and go through the setup screens.Prior to installing, I like to bug out the signals to make sure they work as expected.Two problems here:1) The Sensi needs 24 VAC to work. No sign of a battery. So I ordered a 24VAC power supply.2) The wires are connected to a well designed terminal block on the back plate. No screwdriver needed here, just push to connect, just like a stereo speaker. This block is labeled however, for bench testing, when you snap the thermostat to the back plate to get power, you can access the wires only via probe points. The problem is they are not labeled. I added my own labels here and was able to bug out the unit. Note, there are two methods to bug out the thermostat.1) look for 24VAC on the various pins, while connected to the C wire with the other probe.2) Look for continuity between the Red wire RC or RH and the various output. I found out that the first method is problematic as the unit presents 24VAC to the output when it is active or not. They apparently did not install a pull down resistor on these outputs, and they float high. I consider this a design defect simply due to the confusion it could cause. I suspect it results in a number of returned units, however it is not a functional issue.When I re separated the thermostat from the back plate after debugging, I was surprised to see the LEDs still powered on in the thermostat. Apparently, there is a super-cap or maybe a non-customer battery in there somewhere to keep the unit up through small power glitches.I wired up the unit. and continued the install. Connecting to WIFI was seamless. All it asked for was to identify which network (SSID) to connect to, and the password. Nothing else.The phone app works well also. No connectivity glitches so far.The Sensi does not support the Dehumidify signal on my air handler, but it takes care of dehumidify in a similar way itself. You have good control over that also.The user can also switch on predictive programming, which causes the Sensi to arrive at your desired temperature at the specified time.You can set multiple daily schedules in the app. All pretty straight forward. It appears that you can set as many as 8 set points per day as desired. Unfortunately, the user interface is a bit rough around the edges. Once I created a specific schedule, I could not find a way to delete it. So, just be sure to modify the provided schedule for your first schedule. You can also set the unit to go fan only periodically to avoid stale air in the duct work. The unit knows outside temperature but that is through the web. It does not support the outside temperature sensors provided by my system. I would like to see the unit display the weather on the thermostat, but alas no, but is is on the phone app. It is not clear how much functionality is lost if internet connectivity is lost, but I would recommend a different thermostat if you do not have wireless internet. A nice feature is the web display can show you how many hours the system runs in each mode per day. It does not break down high cool/low cool in 2 stage heat pumps however. I would like to see that feature.There is a modest amount of control over the algorithm, but information provided about exactly what and how the unit does what is does is not to be found. Fortunately, it seems to do its job of regulating temperature in an efficient way pretty well. It is an attractive unit, but be aware that the screen starts to fade out at a 45 degree angle. I will update after I get some more experience, however so far so good.Note: Unit needs to have an internet connection for all but basic functionality.Problem: If unit goes dead, It may not be the unit. Check to make sure you still have 24VAC available. Many HVAC units shut off the 24VAC when the drain overflow switch gets triggered, such as during a drain clog.By the way, Amazon recommended to get a “Emerson F61-2663 Wall Plate for Sensi Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat”, along with this purchase. This is not needed, it is a mistake. Don’t order it.

    It’s basic as far as a Wi-Fi tstat goes. However, if that’s what’s your looking for (which I was) then you can’t go wrong with the Sensi Touch.It VERY EASY to install. Emerson does a fantastic job in provided very straightforward directions and the Sensi App takes you step by step through the very short process. I think it took me 10 minutes to set it up and connect to my network.The unit itself is very stylish and I really like the touch screen.The app is very intuitive and is really where you should do all your settings and adjustments.Customer support is outstanding. There is currently a glitch in the software that gives you an error with the current time shown on the unit. I called Emerson and within a couple of minutes I had that fixed. Everything else was perfect after initial setup.It’s not the cheapest unit out there, but you get what you pay for. This one is truly a keeper!

    I was looking for a smart thermostat to replace a 16 year old digital one. I was also hoping to find an option that would no longer require batteries. I researched many styles and brands and decided on this one because of a review for it that described how to add the “C” wire to power the unit, the ability to slow the run cycles down and the sleek look. (I think the Nest is way overpriced and looks like it came from the 1970’s) My old unit only used the “Y” “W” “R” & “G” wires which I assumed was all that was available in my home. After reading the review on Amazon I realized that the wire loom between the thermostat and the furnace actually has 7 wires in it. Once I removed the old thermostat and opened up the furnace I found 3 wires in the loom that were unused. Also in the furnace, I found a 2 wire loom that goes to the A/C unit outside. Those 2 wires were attached to the “Y” & the “C” posts in the furnace. (Picture attached) I simply attached one of the unused wires in the 7 wire loom (I chose the orange one) to the “C” post and then attached it to the “C” slot on the installation plate for this thermostat along with the previously used four by following the directions that the phone app walks you through. I then powered the furnace back up and bingo. It works perfectly with no batteries required. I have no idea why this option isn’t more well known or utilized but I couldn’t believe I’ve had the option to set it up this way all along. The app also walks you through how to get linked up to your network which was quite easy. Once linked to my network, I can control it from my phone or the unit itself. My favorite thing about it is that it offers the ability to slow the run cycles down. The old digital unit had such a small upper and lower parameter for the temperature setting that it would cycle on and off every 5-10 minutes. With this one you can put it in a setting that widens the parameters so it cycles much less often and runs longer once it does. I would much rather have the temperature range be slightly wider and not run so often which is easier on the igniter and fan. My only knock is that the display only offers for the temperature to be displayed or nothing when it goes to sleep. I think an option to display the time and outside temperature as well would be cool since the phone app does it already. Last note is the nightlight function is a cool feature to make it look fancy but it would be nice if it had more than one dimmer setting.

    I have had the older Sensi Thermostat for a couple years now. I love that thermostat and I will still use it. I will be setting that up in my detached garage. Issues I ran into that one with, did come to haunt me with this upgrade. I used to wonder why my old Sensi Thermostat, which was connected to the common wire (black), required batteries to operate correctly. I help a friend out doing HVAC, but I do most of the grunt work. So, after installing this new, Sensi Touch Thermostat, I found it to have no power. This thermostat does not take batteries. I had hooked it up the same as my old Sensi, and as I had finally figured out, my common wire (black) was not actually live. To make sure, our thermostats come with a jumper wire. I used this jumper wire to go from the red (power) to the yellow (air) in the thermostat. I then waited a minute or so, and my unit kicked on. That told me the unit was good and that I had no power to the thermostat. This is the bypass.I have yet to go under the house, but my friend who is in the business, states this is common. I had to take the panel off my outside unit to get to my thermostat wires. I decided, since it was around 11PM at night that I didn’t want to go under my house, so I tried using the other, available common wire (blue). I replaced the black thermostat wire, which was connected to the blue wire from the unit, with the darker blue thermostat wire. I was lucky. That wire was hooked up correctly under my house. So, the only reason I share this information, is because I could not find it in Google, on the White-Rodgers/Emerson Sensi Q&A, nor Youtube. I don’t want people to give this a bad rating for an experience like mine. It’s a great product. I will eventually have both thermostats displaying actively on my app. I have also seen some reviews stating issues setting up because the person does not have a cell phone, wifi, or ability for apps. This is a Wi-Fi thermostat. I can’t go purchase products for a smart home, without smart home capabilities, and expect things to work or install correctly. This thermostat is for those with today’s technology.

    This thing is awesome. It literally took me 20 minutes to install it and set up the Alexa skill.The first pic is the base plate wired with wire labels. When inserting the wires, it’s easier if you press the tabs down all the way. Be sure to tug on the wires after you insert them to be sure they’re secure.The second pic is the thermostat installed and active. I like the colors.The third pic is with the panel timed out and the back light on in the dark. Still very readable.The fourth pic is a screen shot of the app. I have to say, the app is very nice. The nicest thing is if we forget to set the stat to away mode, we can do it remotely.Finally, the Alexa skill is great. If we get up early or go to bed late, we can adjust the temps away from the set schedules to suit us, and then set it back on schedule using Alexa.

    Love this thermostat!!! We love that the fan can run independent of the furnace. We have a gas fireplace in our living room and the heat is circulated by that setting. I can’t wait to see what impact getting this thermostat will have on our monthly heating/cooling bills. Try not to use the optional plate that Emerson makes to go behind this if it’s needed – it looks really cheap. You’d be better off to touch up the paint than spend the $10 for that thing. This was easy to install and I love the app!!**update**When the weather warmed up a few days ago and we changed the status to auto – setting a warm to and cool to temperature on the thermostat – we noticed we were having an issue with our compressor running at different times than the fan. It was confusing because we hadn’t had any issues with the heat. I contacted Tech Support and they were able to solve the issue. Even though we went through the setup wizard when we installed the thermostats (we’ve since bought a second one!) the settings were wrong!! Very wrong! This was the sequence we used to change the settings and get our issue solved:Go to the physical thermostat.Press “Menu.”Press “Advanced Set Up.”Press “Set Up HVAC Equipment.”Press “Change settings.”If you have a heat pump, choose “HP1.” If you have an air conditioning unit, choose “AC1.” If you have more than one stage cooling, change this to “HP2” or “AC2” to represent this.If you have a wire in Y, but not Y2, you have single stage.If you have a wire in Y and Y2, you have more than one stage of cooling.If you have a gas furnace, oil burner, or boiler system, choose “GA1” which represents a single stage gas/boiler heating system. If you have an electric furnace, this should be set to “EL1.” If you have more than one stage, change this to “GA2” or “EL2” to represent this.If you have a wire in W/E, but not W2, you have single stage.If you have a wire in W/E and W2, you have more than one stage of heating.Once you’ve selected the choice that best describes your equipment, press “Save” to leave the menu.This was the fix we needed!! Now the house is cool and everything is once again, running like a charm!! Thanks Emerson Tech Support!!!

    I have been in the market for a wi-fi thermostat for a LONG time (like 3 years). My main wish list of features was:– Something MODERN looking…like a small cell phone stuck to the wall.– Ability to remotely control my AC (obviously that’s the whole point of a wi-fi thermostat)– Reasonable price– Easy programming– Maybe cool bonus features like playing music, reading email, etc.Based on this list, I considered the Nest but then decided against it. Nests have really nice screens, but I don’t like the round look. That does not say “modern” to me. Also, I work from home so I really didn’t like the idea of having Nest “learn” when I am away (because when I am sitting in my office working, I am not away, but Nest would probably think I was gone).I also looked at a few other brands, but many of these were already looking older/tired. I kept waiting for someone to come out with a new model, but nothing new ever arrived.So, when I saw this Sensi thermostat I thought — hmm, could that be the one? Well, I bought two of these a few days ago from my local big box home store (the blue one, not the orange one). They happened to have a 10% off sale (they were trying to compete with Amazon’s Prime day), so the price was really reasonable.As for the units themselves — they certainly met my criteria of looking like a cell phone stuck on the wall….so CHECK to that box! They also have a cool back light feature which Emerson refers to as a “night light”. If you’ve ever seen the movie Ex Machina, there are scenes where they show some sort of keypad on the wall that’s backlit with very bright blue LED lights. I always wanted something like that, but that’s not really what you’ll get here. First, the night light is very dim, and the light is just plain white. Sort of a missed opportunity there — it seems like for maybe 5 cents more, they could have given you the option of multi-colored backlighting with various brightness levels. Ho-hum, maybe the next version will include that.Anyway, overall I am VERY impressed with these things. The backlight is still pretty cool, even though it’s not terribly bright.The screen is also VERY nice….not quite as nice as a modern cell phone, but much sharper and better than other brands I’ve looked at.One minor complaint — you can’t actually leave the screen on full time. Instead, the screen will “sleep” after about 10-15 seconds. At that point, you have the option of allowing it to go full dark, or you can have the screen remain on with only the temp showing, but with a very dim screen. Some of the photos attached to my review show this — if you see just the number 78 on the screen with nothing else, that’s the “sleep mode”. It’s very dim, but the screen instantly returns to full brightness if you tap it anywhere, so no huge issue.I feel like this is not a big deal….do you really need your screen to remain on when you’re not using it? I don’t, but on the other hand the screen is so nice, it would be better to give consumers the option of leaving it on. My guess is they will push out a firmware update that add that option, and even if they don’t, it’s not a deal-breaker.If I have any other complaint, it’s just that the default temperature setting did not seem to match my room temp (I have other thermometers in the same room reading 84 degrees when my Sensi is displaying 78). Yes, there is a setting in the app to adjust this, but you can only go +/- 5 degrees. In my case, I adjusted the setting by a full 5 degrees, and I am not sure that’s enough. This isn’t a life or death problem….you can always just set the cooling temp a few degrees lower to make the room comfortable (i.e., I used to keep my AC set to 78, but now I need to set it to 74 because the thermostat thinks the room is colder than it actually is).Having said all this, I still think these units deserve a strong 4.5 star review….which I’ll round up to 5. Yes, they have a few minor issues, but overall they are a solid value if you’re in the market for a new thermostat (and no, they don’t play music, but really, that wasn’t a serious requirement).P.S. These also were VERY easy to integrate with my Amazon Echo, so now I can change the temp just by yelling out: “Alexa, set downstairs to 76 degrees.” This works instantly and seamlessly. Very impressive.P.P.S. I hate the lack of user-submitted photos, so I have attached a bunch…enjoy!

    Excellent thermostat. The customer service and tech service is excellent. They will explain and walk you through everything if needed. The thermostat works with GH and Alexa. I used smart hub to connect it and signed on with the sister company wink to connect to GH.I got it to work. This is how using ALEXA.I selected FORGET device.I DISABLED skill.Quit out of Alexa app.I went into Sensi app and named it whatever “SENSI MAIN FLOOR”I went online to the sensi website using browser and opened my thermostat and made sure the new name was there…and it was.THIS IS CRUCIAL…THE ORDER.Find the SKILL Sensi and ENABLE it, link it . CLOSE TAB (following the directions).Then select the DISCOVER box . WAIT for new name to be discovered.Then give command.I knew it was working when Alexa stated that it was in AUTO mode.I tested this method with different names and thats how i know the steps work.The panel is large and stays on. I like the orange for heat and blue for cooling. The blue should be a more distinguishable color to the grey base color. Schedules can be set with this thermostat.
