Was at home Depot today and saw the Lux Kono smart wifi thermostat on clearance for $39.03. They were in the regular thermostat isle on the shelf. B&M YMMV.

Thanks, tried to change the title from my phone but couldn't work out how, so I added it to the description.

Went past and picked up another for a friend. The app and the tracking of usage is pretty good, for the price.

Found two, downstairs went ok but upstairs I think I have funny wiring. Powered itself off after five seconds and I can't even get the old thermostat to turn the unit on now. Same thing happened with a nest and had to get a repair guy out here

sounds like you blew the 3amp fuse inside the unit (if it's somewhat a newer unit)

Assuming a reply to me. Is this fixable for diy? Last time HVAC service charged a small fortune

The reviews aren't that good but the price is great. Anyone have these? How are they in real life usage?

it is. you can take the covers off the front and find a small circuit board. bunch of wires and few relays. Should have a purple fuse. looks like the ones used in the car.

All electric furnace, board is closer to top.

Here's a board with the fuse

turn the power off to the furnace 1st

Remember people, care needs to be taken when changing "just a thermostat" Turn power off and double check wires.

Thanks so much! The first time I did it all power wasn't off, previous owner mislabeled breakers.

This time I think I have something up with the wiring. Power was off to the whole house this time

Also the one I have that was wired correctly seems to be turning A/C on well below the set temp. I set it to 72 and it kicks AC on around 68. Not sure if I'll be keeping

Is it AC or just the fan? Might be a fan feature. I can set my NEST to run the fan every hour for 15 minutes to 30 mins.

Lux manual calls it IAQ or indoor air quality mode

No it says ac on. Feels like cold air coming out although it's been rainy here and pretty chilly outside
