Kono Smart Wi-Fi Thermostat https://www.amazon.com/Kono-KN-S-...B074DYFF1X
What to know:
It is a great thermostat as of its functions and except the learning part you can compare it to Ecobee Light and Nest E. Read more over here https://www.luxproducts.com/kono/ At the moment it is the cheapest smart wifi thermostat from a major retailer.
The Amazon page calls it as 'Unauthorized" but that's because there are many 3rd party sellers on Amazon selling it and Lux doesn't like that. Unauthorized doesn't apply when Amazon is the seller. Please read over here http://www.luxproducts.com/warranty
Amazon.com, Home depot, Walmart and Jet are authorized and this one is from Amazon.com. The price is the cheapest ever, usually it is $100+
It has 3 years warranty.
PC Mag review: https://www.pcmag.com/review/3581...thermostat
It supports Alexa, Apple Home Kit and Google Assistant.
Its supports Geofencing.
It has usage reports in the app. Emerson and Honeywell do not! For me it is super important and I'm going with Kono only because of that, otherwise I'd go with Sensi.
It includes power bridge for people with no C wire.
It has optional face plates of different colors.
Check Home Depot for more info: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Lux-K.../301818230
Here is the app described https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t...UUP8&t=89s
Here is the list of settings in PDF: https://www.luxproducts.com/wp-co...de-002.pdf
It does support temp swing adjust, that's something Honeywell doesn't (their thermostats have 0.5 degree swing, Kono (and Sensi) allow 0, .25°, .5°, 1° or 2.25° adjustments).
Since it is Amazon I will give it a try. For less than $80 if it doesn't work I will just send it back.

Honeywell doesn't have usage reports, their App doesn't support it. All depends on your rebates I guess. Where I live we always have zero rebates for thermostats. You also have to have C wire or pay extra for Honeywell THP9045A1023 Wiresaver module, Kono has power module included in the box.

I see some great deals for you, Nest E for $84.50 and Ecobee 3 light for $84.50. Sensi is only $64.50. Ah, our power company spent millions on digital meters so they can turn your power off right away, the usage for all went like 5%. Not a single perk from them except el-cheapo crappy water heater if you want to abandon your gas one.

If your floor is controlled by 24v relay then any thermostat will do it, otherwise you will need a relay like RT850T-240/U or this https://www.amazon.com/TECHNOLOGI...B0037MXM1C Both have R, W, C connectors. C will be needed for power for smart thermostat

Yeah I saw those... Is sensi a better thermostat. I went with the Honeywell because the look but I was eyeing the sensi too. I'm sure I can cancel because they are backordered for 2 to 3 weeks.

Honestly, Sensi is a great thermostat if you don't need usage reports every day. Honeywell doesn't have usage reports in their Honeywell Total Connect Comfort app I believe (at least it didn't have it before) but think it emails you reports once a month which is pointless for me. https://yourhome.honeywell.com/ho...rgy-report However, RTH9585WF is a great unit as well, has awesome integration support Sensi doesn't have. Dung, lucky Georgia customers. I wish we had your deals over here.

Looks like it's still active.
Does anybody know if this can be used without a cloud connection?
