By Daniel R. Owens on December 15, 2013
Question---- Does the WOODS 1000 temp controller reset automatically after a power interruption or does it have to be reset manually. In other words does it stop operating after a power interruption.
Saturday Dec. 21 Requires more than 1 hour to charge battery, suggest over night. Is keeping the 10' by 10' bath within 2 degrees of setting with space heater. Tested recovery after setting and then unplugging when it was giving power to the heater and when it was not. Then plugged it back it.
It continued to operate and did not require resetting after the power interruption.

I bought three and only two worked, the defective one had to be returned. But when it does work, it works well. I noticed the following:

1. Plug the controller in to charge the internal battery. It is otherwise not functional.
2. Contrary to the included instruction, do not unplug to program. Everything has to be done with the unit plugged in.
3. Why can't the controller display the current temperature? It obviously has to know the current temperature and there is a big LCD display.
4. The controller is a little long, so you won't be able to use the other receptacle without using some sort of power strip or outlet extender.

I would recommend this only if purchased from someplace (like Amazon) where you can return it easily. Otherwise, I wouldn't risk it.

Product arrived as advertised but internal battery was dead. Unfortunately, you have to program it when it's unplugged from outlet and running on battery. Battery cannot be replaced (proprietary rechargeable internal battery). Contacted seller and explained the rechargeable internal battery was dead and they told me to keep the device and they would refund my money. Tried to use the device for some other purpose but without being able to program/set the controls it is useless. Opened the device up and the battery is not something you can easily order/replace/find.

This unit is ideal for circumstances where you want power controlled to a "unit" all determined by the temperature. That does not necessarily have to be a heater or AC unit. In my intentions I placed a unit in our Server Cabinets, setting the unit to power on a bank of fans when the temperature reached a specified setting. I'd like to see the unit created a bit smaller, but for the price and settings it is ideal for my application.

Works; instructions are very well written and the programming is a bit funky... there's a weird delay after first plugging it in and the program actually working. But in the end it works; I have 2 of these in a greenhouse.

Im using this themostat contoller for a small ceramic heater w/no thermostat now being used to keep bathroom warm at night. After 2 or 3 months use it is working consistently and adequately. it should be noted (in.my case at least) that the lag temp is about 11 degrees, so, depending on criticalness, may need to be adjusted accordingly. It was easy to set up and has worked without fail ever since. No need to reset nightly as it is dormant during warm hours and returns to function at such time temp drops. Have not tried it for cooling, though when summer returns, I may try it as control for my evap cooler.

These work very well. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 as it was a little confusing at first to figure out how to program it because there is a battery inside that won't charge while the power is on. Once that battery is charged, the power has to be turned on to program it. The instructions say to unplug it to program, but we found it has to be plugged in with the power on.

I have initially received a defective unit. Contacted the seller, seller re-send another unit in just a few days. The 2nd unit work works perfectly just as it advertised. Compare to similar products that cost at least double more in their $40+, this product really is a bargain and works great. Will consider to buy another unit once I get myself another space heater.
