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.

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.
First, it was super easy to install. I just shut off the power in the room I was installing, removed the old thermostat from the wall and wires, connected the wires to the new thermostat per the instructions (very easy to understand), drilled the backing into the wall, snapped the front panel on...power back on and voila. All I had to do at that point is program it. It allows you to set a morning, day, evening, and night setting for each day of the week. You set the time and temperature for each setting, for instance I have mine set for the heat to turn down to 60 degrees at 9:30 (so the heat just turns off and stays off unless the room gets colder than 60 degrees) and then for the heat to turn on to get back up to 68 degrees at 7:30 in the morning. I set mine for a lower temperature during the day when Im not around and then to turn back up to 68 degrees at 6 pm. You also have the ability to override the programmed settings and change the temperature at any point and it will stay however you put it until the next time setting.
This has been a very convenient product to have. I dont have to worry about forgetting to turn the heat off and wasting money. It is also much more attractive than a standard thermostat as well. All in all, this is a great choice for a programmable thermostat and well worth the investment.
Backlight - a necessity.
7 day programmability - essential.
The only problem? Programming is painfully slow. There are different programs for heat and cool which is expected. But if you want to change say the temperature mid day on a Thursday...you have to tab through Monday morning time. Monday morning temperature. Monday mid day time. Monday mid day temperature. Monday afternoon time. Monday afternoon temperature. Monday night time. Monday night temperate. Tuesday morning time. Tuesday morning temperature. Tuesday...etc etc until you're pretty sure you've worn a spot in the touch screen.
Once it's set though it's great. I promise. There's a lot of great features. The temperature can be calibrated an adjusted. The fluctuation range adjusted as well as the cycle time. Lots of flexibility and anyone can figure out how to change the temperature by tapping the number and hitting up or down. The beauty of touch interfaces.
Anyway, the Lux was super-easy to install and my AC is back on after a very sweaty couple of days. After dealing with the more cumbersome (IMO) Honeywell, the Lux touchscreen is so easy that I kept wondering if that's all there's to it. I do wonder why the instructions require either Duracell or Energizer Alkaline batteries. I put in some other Alkalines but feel compelled to go to the store tomorrow and get the 'required' brand. Kind of feels like money exchanged hands on that deal but if anyone knows of a good reason for this please comment! I'd love to know. Great price on the item, too, and it's ranked a 'best buy' by Consumer Reports. Thought about the 'Nest' but couldn't justify the high price. Very happy I got this one!!
