Design and Interface

We have mentioned above that it has a trendy look that will improve the appearance of your entire areas. Of course, you won’t get the high-tech look, but more traditional and minimalistic design. It contains bright display where you can change both color and brightness to your preferences.

There is also a possibility to change the background color to make it match your interior and decor. It doesn’t matter if you have a problem in seeing because the combination of shading, background and light levels will provide you a clear view from across the room. The display measures are 3.75-inches x 2.25-inches so that you won’t have a problem with transparency.

Apart from the large display, you won’t get the smart thermostat that looks too bulky, but if you don’t want to use the touchscreen display to control the temperature, you will always be able to connect it with a companion app. The screen shows readout of current time, date, outdoor and indoor temperature, current schedule and humidity level.

It is compatible with most HVAC systems, except high-voltage heaters such as electric baseboard heaters.

Of course, you will still need C-wire so that you can install the thermostat. This is both good and bad because if you have C-wire, you will be able to connect it in a matter of minutes. On the other hand, if you do not have one, we recommend you to contact the professional installers so that you can reduce the possibility of any issue that could happen.
