I love this thermostat! I had it up and running in about 30 minutes. The worst part for me was getting the old thermostat off of the wall. I love the color changing feature to. It has performed flawlessly so far. I like that it gets automatic firmware update over wifi to. I also love that I can use my google speaker to control it, as well as the honeywell app if I want to. I have the dimmer on the backlight set to 1, but you can set it to 0 and the display will completely turn off until you touch the screen again if you want.
This is my first experience with a smart thermostat, and it has been great. I really like the graphical look of this thermostat to. The nest, and the ecobee are nice, but i dont like the way the screen looks on either of them. the ecobee is just black, and the nest isnt that big of a screen. The layout and look of the screen on the honeywell is just cool looking. I love that it stays on all the time to if you want it to. As I stated before if you set the backlight to 0 it will completely go dark if you need it to. I can see where that would be necessary if it was located in your bedroom.
I am by no means an electrician, but this was very easy to install. I just took a picture of the wiring on my old thermostat, and just matched the wires to the same letters on the new thermostat.

Good for bedrooms too
I got 5 of them for my house. The one in the bedroom is setup to be black unless someone touches the screen at which point the backlight comes on for a minute.

If could give higher rating the 5 would. Easy to wire, program and connect to Alexa.

I tried to follow the instructions, and could not sync them with my iPhone because I could not figure out the specific model of thermostat in the instructions.
Other than that I like the product.

Great product and easy to program. Can be adjusted while not at home. Biggest issue, it doesn't dim. Do not recommend installing in a bedroom.

I had gotten a thermostat like this one from Walmart to use at another location, but needed to use somewhere else. I liked it, so I ordered it from Honeywell. The same. I am very pleased with the unit.

Great Thermostat with Great Software
Before you purchase a wifi thermostat, go to the app store and investigate the app you'll use to interface with it. I initially had purchased another brand wifi thermostat because it was a bit less expensive. We installed 6 of those in our church to allow us to remotely modify schedules for special events. That was a big mistake. The app isn't stable and locks up. We have since moved those 6 to other locations that seldom change, and installed the Honeywell in the original locations. The Honeywell app is very stable, easier to use, and allows us to switch between heat, cool or auto changeover from the app. The other didn't have these abilities. The thermostat has great functionality and seems to control better than the other as well. The installation instructions are great. We have 7 of them installed now and haven't found any issues with them.

Great Looking Thermostat
Ability to change color of thermostat is an awesome feature. Easy to install. I did have a problem determining system type. Given 3 options - forced air, heat pump, hot water or steam. I selected heat pump and it should have been forced air. I do have a heat pump but system inside the house is forced air. Took me a day to figure that out!

Honeywell RTH9585WF1004 Wi-Fi Smart Color 7 Day Programmable Thermostat
Much easier to install than the prior model. Instructions very clear

Installed exactly one month ago along with new heat pump and love it. I don't even require my glasses to see and set it. Beautiful functionality including outdoor temp and humidity, and setting temperature when were coming home from I phone.
Great looking and you can select different background colors.

I bought an Ecobee 3 for our bedroom zone last week. The first one wouldn’t work, spent an hour on hold for technical service, I gave up and returned to the store. It turns out the contacts had released from the board.
I exchanged for another Ecobee 3. Instructions were non-existent. Set up very difficult, I spent 3 hours trying to set up. I spent another hour on hold again with no answer . I'm an electronics technician with 26 years experience.
A week later I purchased I purchased the Honeywell for our living room zone. I had it installed, on the network, and working in 15 minutes on the first try, I can't speak about their customer service as I never had to speak with them! You decide, LOL!

Replaced our thermostat
We have been considering a few different brand and model options. We had been satisfied with our older model Honeywell and decided to stay with the Honeywell brand. The upgrade to the smart unit has been a wise decision. We could not be happier.

Installed easy. Love the WIFI option and fan recirculate option. Ability to change color to match the decor is nice also. Thermostat is very accurate. Honeywell makes a quality product.
