    I have been using the Thermostat for a little over a month now and everything is working great. Came in handy to place it in our baby's room when cold weather rolled in.

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

    I am so pleased with this product! Our original thermostat was installed in the small hallway to the garage door. I don't know what the architect was thinking, but this little section was isolated and had its own temperature. Not to mention opening the door to the garage set the AC/Heat off immediately, winter or summer. Not good for wear and tear on the HVAC and not good for my electric bill. We couldn't get the rest of the house to a comfortable temperature. But the Venstar system has been a blessing. It was very easy to install. Just match wires from the old thermostat and attach to the wall. The remote thermostat now sits in our central family room and the house is a consistent temperature throughout. The thermostat gives you the option to change the deadband (difference between set temperature and how many degrees before the system activates again). This is great! Most thermostats have a 1 degree deadband, but mine is set to 2 degrees and this keeps the air down to 1-2 cycles per hour and gives efficient operation of the A/C (15 minutes or more). I've read this is great for your HVAC. I totally love this lifesaver! Highly recommend if your builder put your thermostat in that "not so brilliant" location! I do agree that there could be an easier menu/mode set-up, but once you learn it, it is not hard. Still does not detract from a 5-star rating for its overall performance!

      It does exactly what it says it will do without any problems. If I want it a bit warmer or cooler all I have to do is pick up the unit and change it.
      Should have purchased it long ago.

      Works well for a room that had little access to wire the thermostat. Had to reset the the temperature gauge (it was showing about 4 degrees cooler then actual) but that was easy to do. Setting the weekly program is not very intuative but once set, you are done. Otherwise, I am very pleased. This room was always too hot or too cold in the past and now my son can sleep here.

        This is a great alternative to moving a poorly placed hard-wired thermostat. The receiver mounts in place of your existing thermostat, and the sender can be placed wherever you want it.

        The device itself works very well, but the instruction manual is very poorly written.

          Had a continuing issue with a thermostat that was mounted on an internal attic wall. The device always read hotter due to the temperature inside the attic. The VENSTAR unit with the wireless remote solved the issue and now we have a reliable gauge of the actual temperature. The system was easy to install and took only about 20 minutes to be up and running. Highly recommend.

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

          This is one of the most useful technological devices I have ever owned. When we purchased our home the upstairs thermostat was halfway down the hallway which seems logical until you factor in the open architecture of the front hall and stairs which fooled the thermostat into thinking the temperature was the same in all four bedrooms. So our system ran much more than was required simply to try to even out the temperature. Now I can just lie in bed and adjust the temperature to suit our comfort needs. It is so nice to be able to do that without ever getting out of bed even if we wake up in the middle of the night feeling either too warm or cold. In addition my wife can take the wireless thermostat down the hall to the other end of the house where she has her office during the day so she can be comfortable.

            Compared to my other 7-day programmable thermostats, this one was easiest to program. This is mainly because it allows the 4 settings for each day to be copied forward, rather than re-entered for each day. The directions were clear and installation took 10 minutes. Performance wise, it delivers everything as advertised. Highly recommended for open houses where the original thermostat is poorly located. I am sleeping in comfort now.

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

            I needed this product because our former thermostat was located in a hallway and it was being influenced by the heat rising from the lower floor. This generally caused the hallway to be warm and the rooms to be cool. The Venstar gives me more flexibility than I would have gotten if I simply had the old thermostat installed physically into one of the rooms. The portability of the Venstar is key and it's wonderful. The Venstar has solved my heating problem.

            The Venstar Receiver was truly easy to install. Programming the Venstar thermostat however was much too complicated. The instructions assume you having a keen understanding of heating and cooling jargon and technology. There is little that is user friendly about programming this thermostat. Once I was finally able to get the basics into the thermostat, it is very easy and convenient to make minor adjustments to the temperature. I also bought the electric module as a backup for the batteries in the Venstar. When I first programmed the thermostat, it was connected to this module. When I then disconnected the module from the thermostat (so the thermostat was again powered by the batteries), all the info I had just entered during the programming exercise had been lost. One other issue--the Venstar has a feature which allows a switch to/from heating/cooling automatically. I can't use this, but I couldn't figure out how to override this function. Since it's heating season now, I simply switched off the breakers for the air conditioning.

            Bottom line--I would recommend this to a friend, however with reservations.

            I had my old 2 wire connection go on the fritz between my T-Stat and boiler. The mess of replacing the wire from the boiler to the T-Stat was going to be a big problem. This solved my problem very well. When I build my next house I'll go wireless. I was able to program it after reading the instructions a few times, so that would be my only complaint, a very minor deal.
