Efficient. Easy. Economical. That's why you'll love the Lux TX9000TS seven-day programmable thermostat. This clever device gives you complete and accurate temperature control at the touch of a finger. Compatible with a variety of heating and cooling systems, this thermostat incorporates do-it-yourself installation, a responsive touch screen, and a large lighted display for straightforward programming and operation.
Icons indicate cooling, heating, and lockout modes. View larger.
With the TX9000TS it's easy to set a daily heating and cooling schedule for your home, which can ensure your comfort and potentially reduce your utility costs. With easy-to-use menu-driven programming and intuitive touch-screen commands, this thermostat allows you to program up to four different time and temperature settings in a 24-hour period (morning, day, evening, and night). You also have the option of setting a different program for every day of the week.
The TX9000TS can be an energy-efficient choice that can save your family approximately 33% on energy bills.
It comes pre-programmed with a default energy-conserving heating and cooling schedule that's designed to save up to $180 in energy costs over one year.
And thanks to the keyboard lockout feature, the TX9000TS is great for households with small children or other potential unauthorized users.
User-Friendly Features and Operating Simplicity
Incredibly user friendly, the TX9000TS boasts a range of helpful features to simplify both programming and everyday operation. First, a large blue electroluminescent display is easy to read--even in low light--and clearly shows the current day, time, temperature, and filter status.
Additionally, audible touch confirmation indicates that your choices are being registered, while snowflake and flame icons indicate cooling or heating mode. For further convenience, a filter-usage monitor allows you to set filter limits from zero to 720 hours of use, and a "replace" icon will appear when battery power is running low.
The TX9000TS is compatible with a number of heating and cooling operational systems, including most 24-volt systems, single-stage systems, heating-only and cooling-only systems, furnace systems, central air-conditioning systems, heat pumps without auxiliary heat, two-wire hydronic systems, and 750-millivolt systems.
What's in the Box

The thermostat itself is very large, but looks fine on the wall. It's very simple to program - each day has four time settings - Morning, Day, Evening, and Night. You can configure when each time setting begins (for example, the default is that "Morning" begins at 6:00am). For each day of the week, you can configure the temperature for each time setting. The only quirky thing, noted by other reviewers, is that you have to tap the "Yes" button on each temperature to save it while you're programming. It's really easy to forget to do that, so it pays to go back and check after you've set it up.
The thermostat also has a number of advanced features, but I have not even started to explore them. If you're planning on purchasing one of these, Amazon is a good place to order it, since they're about $20 cheaper here than at the major home supply retailers.
I got it to replace an older Lux that died. I was looking forward to the large, easy to read numbers.
Here is my list of disappointments:
1) Yes, the numbers are large, but the LCD contrast is really weak. I could actually read the tiny display of the previous LUX better. Since thermostats are often placed in dimly lit hallways, it's a problem. This model has a beautiful back-light that makes everything crisp, but it's annoying to be wasting battery and pushing a button just to check the time/temperature.
2) For such a large display, I really miss not seeing both the current temperature and target temperature simultaneously. You must touch the screen to see the target. This is especially annoying since precious screen real estate is used for nonsense like "Heat Mode" in TWO places, the text and the flame icon. For most people, this is something you switch once per year. The information content is near zero.
3) Another user interface quirk that should get somebody kicked out of design school is the "hold feature". Hold is activated by touching the hold letters in the bottom left corner, and when it's on, hold is written again at the top. So remember "two holds" means hold, but just "one hold" means no hold.
4) Programming is a pain. 4 periods per day x 7 days per week = 28 settings you have to worry about getting right. They make it slightly easier with a "copy" function that repeats the previous day's setting, but it's still cumbersome. If you want to try sleeping one degree colder, you have to reprogram every day.
5) The thermometer was off by 2 degrees F on my unit, but I eventually found a +/- 2 degree calibration option.
I would have been happier with a Nest thermostat, but it's hard to justify $250 for such a trivial appliance.
Once I had installed the thermostat and it was looking nice I sat down to program it. When I tried to touch the screen to set the date and time, the touch screen was VERY unresponsive. When attempting to set the time, I tried touching the UP arrow but it would only advance 1 minute if I was lucky. It was around 6PM at night... imagine how long it would take to advance 6 hours when it takes 3 seconds to advance the time setting only 1 minute! I investigated further by returning to the home screen where I attempted entering the menu, to no avail. Every time I pressed the menu button, the menu page would flash for a split second, then go back to the home screen. This is when I knew something was up. I have had phones that have had touchscreens malfunction after years of use, but this was the first time I had used this thing. NOT GOOD.
Needless to say, this one is going back. I have asked for a replacement, so hopefully that one functions correctly...
Just received the replacement thermostat in the mail today. The replacement works perfectly and none of the problems I was experiencing with the other unit seem to be present.
Programming is pretty intuitive, though you have to remember to hit the "yes" button for every programmed time and temperature, or nothing will be stored. Copy is a little confusing, but all it does is copy the previous day's programming, then cycles to the next day. That means you program Monday, and then when you get to the Tuesday menu, hit copy. This makes Tuesday the same program as Monday. Now you're looking at Wednesday's program (noted by the WED symbol above).
One trick i discovered is that if you're trying to get to a specific day, you don't have to use the "scroll" button, which makes you go through 4 times and their corresponding temperatures for each day. Instead touch the day (i.e. Mon, Tues, Wed) and it will cycle you through the days. This may save you some time.
Overall a nice thermostat. I love that you can control the temperature swing on this device (unlike Honeywell programmable thermostats). Living in a cold climate means that temperatures can fluctuate more inside your home. If your thermostat has a small, unprogrammable swing of 0.25 degrees *cough*Honeywell*cough*, your furnace will kick on every 30 minutes. This wastes a ton of energy, in terms of the runtime and also a furnace operates inefficiently when it first starts.
Do yourself a favor and ditch your old thermostat. I just hope you don't get a lemon like I did first.
PS Amazon's return policy is great! I love buying things from them just for that piece of mind!
