I have had this thermostat combo for three weeks now and it seems to be working pretty good. It took a little while to learn the controls and get it calibrated. Installation was pretty easy.

    I have two of these units in old houses where I wanted to more strategically place the thermostat. Running wires through old walls can be a pain. The wireless setup completely solves the issue.

      This is the second unit I have purchased. The first one I bought in 2007, but was unaware of the relay kit. Got it to work with the help of a friend.
      Easy to install...beats trying to snake wire from one floor to the next. Only tricky part was running AC power line down the wall, as the wall which contained the receiver had insulation behind the drywall.
      Other than that, would definitely recommend this product. Would hope that future revisions are able to slim the receiver in size.

        Comments about Venstar Wireless Residential Thermostat Combo - T1100RF / REC:

        After researching many months on available wireless thermostats I bought this because it was easy to install and doesn't require 24v common wire. In fact this is the only unit that doesn't require 24V common wire. Installation was easy as expected, but was very disappointed with the materials, which are cheap plastics and felt flimsy. I am an engineer and computer scientist, and even I had difficult time programming this device. It was poorly designed, not intuitive, and instructions are poorly written.

          Comments about Venstar Wireless Residential Thermostat Combo - T1100RF / REC:

          I replaced my current thermostat with the Venstar to move the temperature sensor to a better place and solve uneven temperature control throughout the house. A closed hallway door and no returns was the main cause of this.

          Documentation did not provide the correct wiring hookup for a Trane AC system. The website had no tech support telephone number. Fortunately, some one promptly answered my emails and gave me the correct information. (818-341-8760) They really need to add this information to their manual and web site.

          Internal setup to the transmitter is a little tricky and requires careful reading of the manual. I also found the temperature readings displayed on the transmitter off,but was able to easily re-calibrate.

          This thermostat seems to have solved my uneven temperature problem. Hopefully this will also reduce the run time on the AC system cut my electric bill.

              Comments about Venstar Wireless Residential Thermostat Combo - T1100RF / REC:

              I ordered two of these thermostats to solve a specific problem, and they have done the job nicely so far. My problem was that I have two heating units in my house, each of which was controlled by a separate, wall-mounted thermostat. The thermostats were mounted on the same wall in an open hall area, and therefore never seemed to keep the temperature right in rooms that we actually used most of the time. My HVAC guy recommended another setup, but I felt the Venstar units were right for what we wanted.

              I installed them myself, and found the installation not too complicated, but care must be taken to insure that you wire the base units properly. (I asked my HVAC guy to come in and check my wiring job after installation, just to be sure.) We then took the remote units to rooms in which we spend most of our time at home in the evenings: the family room and the master bedroom. The result: a much-improved comfort level.

              Caveats: We have not been running these 'stats long enough to be able to determine the effect on our heating fuel bills. Also, their longevity is uncertain.

              But overall, they are doing exactly what I wanted and I am pleased.
