This Sensi is only my choice because of no power cable from furnace, only red and white cable from inside wall. Previous home owner used some cheap non-powered thermostat.

My complain is, the thermostats turn to offline constantly and WIFI symbol is gone and come back and then gone again and come back again. I am not sure my ASUS T-mobile Router is not enough to cover up 2000sqft. While WIFI is absent, even I press button to increase temperature manually, sometimes it doesn't control temp at all, furnace doesn't run.(But a cheap non-powered honeywall thermo at my basement works and make the furnace run at that moment) If only one did so, then may be I got defect one, but both do.

It's designed that way. If you don't have this hooked up to a C-Wire, it technically still works but the wifi turns off after about 2 hours to save on battery life.

Source: Bought one and having an electrician come out to rewire my system since I don't have a C-wire.

Oh, so it is normal.
I may hire electrician to do wire works later, too.

thanks.

I have two of these and as long as the wifi is "good", they are always connected.
I had to run a new wire myself in order to get a C wire. When you run new wired, do your self a favor and put in more than the minimum 5 wire. Go for 7. The cost is in the installation if you are having it down by someone else.

The Smartthings device handler does work, I haven't really played with it all that much though. From my understanding the device can't be controlled natively like most devices (Emerson hasn't released the API). I think the Smartthings device handler simulates signing into a web browser to send commands, which probably isn't the best. So, it works, but, it's not ideal.

Probably best to read through the Smartthings Sensi thread to see how other's are using it, as my usage with the app so far is somewhat limited (I still usually use the Emerson app). If your primary usage is Smartthings, I would look for one with native support.

The electrician is putting in a 5-wire setup. What advantages would I have with 7 wires?

Then you should have bought a nest thermostat

My device worked for almost a year and started acting up lately, I called sensi yesterday asking for replacement
