Thermostat recommendations?

My thermostat screen appears to be dying. It's a fairly simple Honeywell RTH8580WF1007 green screen. It's only fancy feature is I can connect to it via wifi or the internet. Recommendations for a replacement?

I have a Honeywell that's supposed to connect to the internet so I can control it with an app. Hasn't worked with wifi for years. I connected it when we first got it, and it worked for a couple of months. Then something happened and it disconnected and I couldn't get it back. After a few months, I repeatedly followed the instructions and finally managed to get it to connect again. Again, it worked for a few months, then disconnected again. After several futile attempts to reconnect, I gave up.

I like the way my nest looks but ecobee has better smart home connectivity. That said, there's a growing number of smart thermostats out there and I haven't been shopping recently.

Also, @#$%& AI setting my temperature. I just want an interface that doesn't suck.

For $50 the Wyze has been solid for me.

Still like the NEST the kids got me for Christmas a number of years ago. As a google product, the app and support have been pretty solid. Still... google has a history of abandoning things...

My second* EcoBee is great. That it works with HomeKit is awesome.

*The first needed to be replaced under warranty

I had the Honeywell programmable with internet. If you just want to be able to set your temp and monitor it remotely it will do the job. You may want to check with your HVAC guy if you have multiple zones though, not sure what that would entail.

I went with Ecobee for mine with a handful of remote sensors. I like it a lot.

However good other brands may be, I think HomeKit makes the ecobee a real winner.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

And hope is a lousy defense.

No issues with my Ecobee. Homekit integration is nice. The remote temperature sensors are a nice feature for my house. These sensors can be used to run HomeKit automations with the help of the Eve app.

My BIL who can get Honeywell and most other connected thermostats at a discounted price went with a retail price Ecobee based upon his experiences with the others.
