    Comments about Robertshaw 9701i2 Programmable 1 Heat/1 Cool Hardwired Thermostat:

    I installed the 9701i2 at the same time I installed a new Weil-McLain gas/steam boiler.
    Installation and programming of the thermostat was a snap, but wiring it to the boiler was not, which was not Robertshaw's fault. I had to rewire the boiler controls so that there is a constant 18v feed for the thermostat to operate. The Weil-McLain boilers do not accommodate digital/programmable thermostats very well. When all was done, everything worked great.
    Possibly in the future, I might add the indoor remote upstairs, and maybe even the outdoor remote, might as well take advantage of the features. I gave it four stars because five would be perfect, it's close, but not perfect.

    This model replaced a 9701i that controls 2 floors in my townhouse. One floor is very cold (1st) the other floor is usually habitable. This unit allows you to set different temps for the floors and is very precise. Easy to use and program. I am glad my old one died!

    Was a good purchase for our small office building. The password protect stops unauthorized changes in the thermostat. The instructions were a little bit hard to use, but otherwise a good product.

    Comments about Robertshaw 9701i2 Programmable 1 Heat/1 Cool Hardwired Thermostat:

    We installed 5 units in an animal shelter. It was important to keep utility expenses down by preventing people from messing with the settings. The security code did this. Just be aware that the unit requires 5 control wires. The old units only had 4 wires so we had the extra expense of installing the fifth wire.

        Comments about Robertshaw 9701i2 Programmable 1 Heat/1 Cool Hardwired Thermostat:

        Easy to install and quite configurable / customizable. The only thing I didn't like was having either 4 or 6 times of day and having the thermostat name those times of day for you. I wanted 5 set back times, but either had to go to 4 or 6. When selecting 6, I was forced to have a wake, morning, noon, afternoon, evening and sleep. The noon was useless for me, so I used it as "return" home. This made the other settings push into the evening hours.

        I also purchased and installed the outdoor tempurature sensor which displays the outdoor temp on the thermostat. Works great, but have very small letters -- making the outdoor temp somewhat hard to read unless you're right on top of it.

        Other than that, it's a good themostat that I would recommend.

          Comments about Robertshaw 9701i2 Programmable 1 Heat/1 Cool Hardwired Thermostat:

          My furnace and A/C installer had previous model in stock (9701i), and said there was practically no difference. I did my homework and found that the "i2" version had completely new firmware and was much easier to use. I stuck to my guns and arranged to buy it on-line. Prothermostats had it at a better price than my installer offered for the older version. I am 100% satisfied with this product.

          Remote Sensor Setup not as expected

          By sorry

          from here in the US

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Robertshaw 9701i2 Programmable 1 Heat/1 Cool Hardwired Thermostat:

          We don't like the look of modern controls in an antique home, so the idea was to hide the thermostat in a closet and install the more discrete remote sensor in the room itself. The idea was that the remote sensor would override the control. Big mistake: When the closet door is closed, the heat cranks like crazy, since the temp gets read in the closet, too! I am not sure what the remote sensor does, as the control seems to work solely off its closet surroundings....

            Comments about Robertshaw 9701i2 Programmable 1 Heat/1 Cool Hardwired Thermostat:

            First, the only reason I had to replace my 18 year old Robertshaw was that I carelessly slammed the cover back on and broke a piece of plastic necessary to hold the cover in place. This new unit is so intuitive that you barely need the instruction manual. It is also very versatile, allowing much more control over times and temperatures. My only complaint is that with spring here, I'd like the afternoon temperature a little lower, leaving me to make changes on seven different days. With the old one, there was an offset temperature for when you were asleep or not home, and a regular temperature. Much less control, but only one change needed.

              had every feature we were looking for. Only a couple other make/models I could find have 6 daily temperature periods. Cut our heating bill in half. Haven't had a summer yet to test the AC function. We use it to heat/cool an 80'x15'storefront room.
