I was actually going to go buy one but decided to look at the reviews on Amazon first. A lot of people have mentioned that setting this up can be very complicated and unreliable. You might want to check out the reviews first before you make the plunge.
It's very easy to setup and their customer service is amazing. Quick response even on the weekends. Highly recommend this unit
Got one in Blaine MN (South Blaine store). They had a bunch on the shelf. Installed and working like a charm. I did have to add the C wire as others mentioned, other than that they did a good job with the instructions I felt.
The Android app is nice, and I think the schedule interface is really good. I made the mistake of doing it on my laptop via webpage and that took a lot more effort.
I do not have a C-wire in my current setup. Trying to figure out if fishing one from the basement is worth it.
I have the same thought, and poking around it seems there's a way to do it if you want to use your G wire and make a small jumper as explained in the video. The G wire controls the fan, and with it connected to the usual G terminal you can turn the fan on and off manually if you wish. Not many people do this though, so you can repurpose that G wire as your C wire by plugging it into the C slot on both your thermostat and furnace terminal. Then you just jumper the Y to the G on your furnace terminal which makes sure the fan still turns on with the furnace, and you're good to go! If you never turn the fan on manually then you'll never know the difference. I haven't tried it yet because I don't have any spare wire to jumper the connections, but once I do I'm going to do this as well.
