I actually spent more time getting it to work more than getting up to turn on the AC. The remote hasn't worked for more than 24hrs straight. Unfortunately no one from @thinkeco bothers to read the reviews to improve this frustrating app. In fact, I use more electricity trying to connect the remote than the AC is saving. If i can give it a zero I would do it with pride.
A Nightmare App was painful to use from the start. Was on a Nexus, but even with customer support I couldn't get it set up. In the end they directed me to use an iOS device. The thermostat dropped out of the network overnight and then had to start the whole process over again from scratch. Why hasn't app been updated in a year with all bad the reviews? Probably will return modlet.
App needs serious work This application's quality hovers somewhere around "unfinished" and "proof of concept." Barring the fact that the UI is not elegant, it is almost completely useless, forcing me to log into the website on my laptop to do anything but turn the AC on and off. I frequently get 401 errors, AC on/off statuses not updating, deleted modlets showing up, and frequent thermostat disconnects (even though the AC/thermostat is functioning and the website says it's fine). Overall, the quality of this app is abysmal.
Great program The product concept is smart and saves me money in the summer time. The gift cards incentive is definitely a bonus. I can't really complain, considering I got 270$ worth of smart ac kits for free. They do have their hiccups sometimes, which is understandable for a tech startup. Overall I'm glad I got their kits that give my 1990's AC units remote capabilities.
Thinkeco review I am really liking this app & WIFI gizmo hooked up to the A/C. No more leaving the A/C on while I am out. I can remotely turn it on about 10-15 minutes away from home and walk in to a cool paradise. Update 8/10/2016, I don't know what happens, I don't know if its the WiFi or what but I am constantly having to reset the whole thing, which is time consuming. Thinkeco smart A/C is a great idea but the company still needs to work out the kinks
Rarely works App never works right. Thermostat constantly loses WiFi, which causes me to have to reset the entire system, which takes me 20 minutes an ac. 100 degree index in NY, I had wired up a raspberry pi cheaper and more reliable than this.
