Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat

Springtime in Alberta is the time of year when it can be snowing in the morning, then 20 above in the afternoon and then back down to the single digits once the clouds and wind come out in the evening.

Rinse and repeat.

On top of this annoyance, you also have a busy schedule. So, when I up the heat in the morning and then go out shopping, my house is a furnace when I get home. Likewise, I cool off the house at night and leave the window open a bit – but come early morning, I’m a human popsicle. I hide under the covers and try to gain the momentum to burst out of bed and start warming the home.

Now, I don’t have this issue thanks to the Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat. Technology has evolved to find solutions for homeowners that want to save energy and change the temperature in the home, even when they are not at home. This Wi-Fi Thermostat can be remotely controlled from any smartphone, tablet or PC. Yes, i can now adjust the temperature in my home where-ever I am, even hidden under a pile of blankets.

Installing the Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat couldn’t be more simpler – I did it all myself thanks to their app and the step-by-step interactive instructions with video. While I take on daily household maintenance regularly, I run away from anything ‘wires’ because I firmly believe that if anyone will get electrocuted – I will.

Yet, in this case, the instructions provided by the company are outstanding, no hiring of a professional to get the job done.

Once you have the app downloaded and it walks you through the instillation, you connect the thermostat to wifi and it’s ready to go. I was amazed at how fast I changed out our thermostat and was gloriously changing the temperature from my phone.

Benefits of having a Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat is of course, convenience. Just think of how often you make trips to the thermostat. Lots! So, for those who are busy, lazy and just like being able to multitask – this thermostat is for you!

Oftentimes I’m working away in the office, feel a chill {or a heat flash} and now don’t have to drop whatever I’m doing and lose my working momentum, to go to the thermostat. I just reach over to my phone {which is always at arms reach}, and make the needed changes. It’s convenience at its best.

The Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat works with our air conditioning unit as well, so I can choose for it to be on heat, cool or auto. When changing the temp, the screen glows red or blue to let you know whether it’s heating or cooling your home. It’ll also display the current temperature in your area as well as the humidity in your home too.

You can also program the thermostat to your daily schedule and routine. Other thermostats that are programmable, leave you rotating through all the days and times to make your settings. With the Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat app, it’s so user friendly and very quick to make any programmable changes.

Having this thermostat also saves you money on your heating bills, since you can adjust it even when you are away from the home. So, if you leave for travel, you can alter your home temperature from afar. Likewise, you can start heating your home before you get there – so it’s nice and toasty warm when you arrive. It’s a nice welcome!!

You can purchase your Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat at select retailers across North America or buy it online on the website.

  71. How cool or hot is this item?

    How great would it be to set your home temp before you get home or crawl out from beneath those warm sheets in the cold. Whoops more control over your heating & cooling & more control over the bills.

    Oh yeah, could totally use it. Win win…except for the utility folks.

  72. I would love to have this because I think it would be a great way to save money on our energy bill! I am terrible for leaving the heat turned up in the house when I go out, and my husband is the opposite – he turns everything down and the house is so cold when we get home. So I waste money keeping the heat on when we’re not there, and he uses more energy having to crank it up to get it back to normal. It would be great to control it from anywhere so that we can keep a balanced and ideal temp!
