I recently came across this Honeywell Wi-Fi 7-Day Programmable Thermostat for only $87.

You’ll see that no one will mistake it for a Nest, but is it any good? Read some of excerpts from the Amazon Reviews:

A good budget wifi thermostat – Could be easier to install…

This thermostat is outstanding. You can monitor and control the temperature, heat vs cool, and the fan auto vs on from your cell phone from anywhere. Right now there is no monthly charge for this capability.

An excellent WiFi thermostat system -which I can do and fully understand. It will help a good deal while I am traveling. I am an empty nester.

I missed the fine print about possibly being charged for the wireless access in the future. Had I been aware of that, I would have declined the terms and returned the thermostat for that reason alone. Something about not knowing the actual cost of a product when you purchase it does not sit well with me.

Overall, it looks like a cheap alternative to the Nest. As you will see from my Nest Review, I really like it and believe it’s worth the expensive price.
