The Sensi thermostat sounds more like a ninja than a smart thermostat, but just like a ninja, the Sensi works silently behind the scenes, adjusting your home’s temperature without you even realizing it. When it’s done doing its work, slashed energy bills will be the only thing left behind.
I’ve seen plenty of wifi thermostats, and all of them claim to be better than their competitors, but the Sensi has a lot going for it. For starters, it’s made by Emerson, a brand that has over 75 years of experience in the biz. On top of that, Emerson built the Sensi around a smartphone app – not a wall unit. I don’t know about you, but I always have my smartphone nearby. My wall thermostat? Not so much.
The simple and intuitive design makes it easy to adjust your home’s temperature on the fly whether you’re stuck in traffic on your way home, or on vacation halfway across the world.
The Sensi comes equipped with a few impressive features that I think any homeowner will appreciate.
Easy Temperature Adjustments and Scheduling
The power behind the Sensi system is the intuitive app. From the app, you can control your system by making temperature adjustments, creating schedules and viewing local weather conditions.
The app is user-friendly, too, so you won’t waste time trying to figure out how to use it. Right from the dashboard, you’ll see the weather conditions on the top right of the screen, the system’s status on the bottom of the screen, and your current temperature right in the middle of the screen. Right next to the current temperature are simple up and down arrows that allow you raise or lower the temperature with ease. Just below that is a display of your current and upcoming schedules.
Scheduling is, arguably, the most important part of the app, and what helps save you money each month. Sensi comes with 9 built-in schedules, but you can create your own, too. You can even create separate schedules for weekdays and weekends.
Easy Installation and Connectivity
Installation is the most intimidating part of buying a smart thermostat. I consider myself to be pretty handy, but installing a thermostat can be a nightmare with some models.
The Sensi is different. Installation is DIY-friendly, so just about anyone can install it. And if you’re not confident in your skills, you can search for a professional to install the system for you right through the Sensi website.
Connecting to my home’s Wi-Fi connection was a lot easier than I thought it would be, although I did experience some issues with the connection dropping here and there. I’ve seen other reviewers complain of the same thing, but mine seemed to correct itself after a day or two.
If you’re considering buying a smart thermostat, I highly recommend that you look into the Emerson Sensi thermostat. It’s intuitive, easy to use and will help you save money on your monthly energy bills. Backed by over 550 positive reviews on Amazon and one of the most respected names in the business, you can trust that the Sensi will be helping you save money for years to come.
