5.0 out of 5 stars A very solid Z-Wave device, November 10, 2012
This review is from: 2gig CT100 Z-Wave Programmable Thermostat (White) (Tools & Home Improvement)
This device works very consistently and has a very good Z-Wave communications range. It is able to communicate over twice the distance of any of the other Z-Wave devices I use. Also I have read that if you have a "C" wire connected to it from your HVAC system it doesn't rely on battery entirely for power and then acts as a Z-Wave repeater.

One thing to be aware of. This replaces an older device that was programmable in and of itself without Z-Wave. This device can only be programmed on a schedule using a Z-Wave controller automation. I think the greatly extended battery life of this unit, its great communications distance and its reliability make up for the lack of built-in programmability.

One other point in favor of the new model. I read that if someone changed the temperature settings on the older model that fact didn't get communicated to the Z-Wave controller. With this newer model it does. So if someone in the home changes the settings you know about it remotely.

How did you "program a schedule using Z-Wave controller automation"? I have it paired to a 2GIG controller and Alarm.com web account and the most I can do is create cool/heat set points on the controller and can only see that it is enabled on alarm.com (but with no adjustments available). Would greatly appreciate any advice on how to program a schedule using Z-Wave, thank you!

Sorry M2; I'm using a MCV Vera Lite controller and it's very easy using their graphical user interface to program automation. You'll probably have to contact 2GIG tech support for help with the 2GIG controller. Not familiar with it myself.

Scratch that --- turns out that my alarm provider (Hawk) had to enable the thermostat feature on the alarm.com end in addition to it being enabled on the controller end.
