Sensi Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat1F86U-42WF

Emerson Sensi™ Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat provides control of home comfort – anytime, anywhere from a smartphone, tablet or PC. The free Sensi app connects the Sensi thermostat to a home
Wi-Fi router. 5-year limited warranty with professional installation.

Technically, its full name is the White-Rodgers Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat, but we’re gonna just go with Sensi for short. And it is a great thermostat, especially if all you care about is accessing your thermostat remotely and setting schedules with ease.

The Sensi™ Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat is one of the first thermostats to work with Echo and Alexa, and it is the most affordable choice in the connected-thermostat category.

As well as being less expensive, the Sensi is also low maintenance. It doesn’t, for example, require separate power (the so-called C wire) and can run on two included AA batteries. It does not have a color LCD screen or a proximity sensor, so it doesn’t attract much attention and it doesn’t track your whereabouts.

The Sensi thermostat is Emerson’s first entry into the Wi-Fi thermostat market, a category which is expected to grow to $600 million globally by 2018, according to ABI research.

The Emerson Sensi smart programmable thermostat has total control over the temperature in your home. The Emerson Sensi has some useful energy-management tools, such as seven-day scheduling and a humidity sensor. Emerson offers a longer warranty than other wireless thermostats, but its technical support options are otherwise limited.
