Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat Review & Giveaway




Winter is coming and the first thing I hate about winter is being COLD!

We have been looking at Wi-Fi thermostats and trying to decide if we should switch to something more modern.

So when I got asked to review the Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi thermostat, I jumped at the chance.

Canadian Basics

Features of the Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat:

  • Multiple thermostats / multiple programs easily managed within Sensi app from multiple devices

  • Auto heat/cool changeover option

  • Permanent program retention during power loss (I love this feature since my town’s power goes out often.)

  • A/C compressor protection

  • Choice of battery-powered with optional power stealing assist or hardwired with battery backup (2 AA batteries included)






    Mike took off our old thermostat and replaced it with the Sensi Wi-Fi thermostat in minutes.

    It was so easy to set up.

    I am good with technical programs but with installing products , I am a bit slower since I have had my husband around for 14 years, I have gotten lazy.

    The Sensi Wi-Fi Thermostat is so easy to install, anyone can do it.

    The Sensi app also comes with an instruction video to help you further.

    Canadian Basics

    With me being on dialysis, I can’t get unhooked unless I really need to do something. (ie. My children get sick in the middle of the night.)

    Sometimes I will be lying around in bed and get either too hot or too cold.

    My thermostat is downstairs, so it isn’t within reach to me while I am hooked up in my room.

    The Sensi Wi-Fi thermostat allows me to change the temperature with my smartphone!

    Now I can turn the heat on, central air or change the temperature all with a push of a button from my bed.

    We also set it on a schedule. (Which you can see from the picture.)

    We set it for 21 oC for 6am and at 10pm it drops back to 18oC.

    Canadian Basics

    You can even be away from home and change the temperature.

    One day I was on the phone with Mike and I was telling him I was freezing.

    He turned up the heat with his app.

    I was at home in Alvinston, Ontario and he was in Cambridge, Ontario at the time.

    I just think the Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi is a great addition to any home!

    You can purchase the Sensi Wi-Fi thermostat on the Sensi website for $149.99 US ~ CLICK HERE

    I seriously need a new thermostat. The one I currently have allows the house to get too cold before the furnace comes on. Then the house gets way too hot before the furnace shuts down. This emerson-sensi-wi-fi-thermostat seems like it would be the perfect solution.

    I would love to win this so I can keep an eye on my furnace. It is very old and I always worry greatly that it will die while I am away.

    My current Honeywell manual thermostat might be off a few degrees because it sure feels cooler than the temp I set it to.

    I have a basic thermostat and would like one that allows adjusting while away from home.

    We are always struggling with keeping our heat regulated, it is either to high or to low -never "just right" maybe this would help a bit?

    I would like it because you can program it remotely. So simple when you're going to be home in an hour, warm everything up first.

    I would love to win this so that maybe I could be comfortable at home. It is either way too hot or way too cold here and our present thermostat doesn't seem to be able to control the temp properly. Also would be great to be able to warm things up a bit when we are on the way home in our cold winters.

    Just bought our first house which uses a thermostat that I'm sure was very popular in the 80s however I would love an upgrade so I could actually see what the house temperature is! Plus the functionality and energy bill savings would be very beneficial as well.

    It would be great to be able to turn the heat on when coming back from being away. I want to be able to save money by not heating the house while we are gone, but when you come home it is always way too cold. That would be really neat to be able to do that.

    My husband turns the heat down when we'll be away for any length of time. It isn't pleasant returning to a cold house. I would love to have this so we can turn up the heat before we return home and have a nice warm house to come back to!

    Our thermostat is so stupid, first your freeaing then you turn it up a degree and it runs for over an hour so then your to hot! Would be nice to have a digital for AC and Heat.
  72. lisa rumolo
    November 22, 2014 / 5:50 am
    I would be able to turn up the heat when i leave work so the house is warm when i get there. I like that its easily changeable when your schedule changes. most programmable thermostats have fixed programs.

    I live in apartment building and the thermostat here does not work at all....I've never actually ever lived anywhere where the thermostat worked....So I need one that does :)
