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.
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.
App and infrastructure need work I Keep getting an xml service unavailable message when attempting to log into the app. Error messages when setting up the modlet are not descriptive. I could go on and on. This app and it's support are clearly amateur hour. Glad I didn't have to pay for this garbage.
Lots of crashes and HTTP error message popups. The hardware is impressively flaky as well. Basically, this is total garbage, but I got it free from ConEd (still, it's not really even worth zero dollars though).
