Energy Usage Doesn’t Match Thermostat
The app works acceptably for controlling the heating/cooling, but in January stopped displaying the “fan with gas heat” electric usage in the app. Worked fine previously. Now it displays correctly on the actual thermostat, but not within the app. I suppose it could be the thermostat not sending the info correctly over my WiFi. Reported it to my installer in January, and they couldn’t tell if it was a global app issue or something else. So then reported it to Bryant, and even have a case #, but they have elected not to respond for several months now.
The other frustrating thing is it only allows the daily energy usage history for the past 2 days. It then rolls up the usage into months and years. Why it won’t allow daily usage history is puzzling and frustrating. Can’t compare how efficient the system is on similar days a week apart.
Not as bad as the reviews. Read my update for tip!
I had an ecobee with my previous furnace and that brand is pretty much the gold standard for smart thermostats. We bought a new house with a zone system and ecobees were no longer an option. ☹️ Our furnace went out and we had to replace the furnace so we also replaced the zone system and got new thermostats. This app does not always work perfectly like some of the reviews state. There are times where I change the temp in a zone and it doesn’t register with a zone. That’s valid. There are times where it locks up and I have to restart the app. You will hate it if you expect the quality of a nest or ecobee. But it works much better than the reviews indicate. It is not completely useless. I went from the old mercury/non-programmable thermostats to being able to control all zones from my phone or the main thermostat. I’m pleased since my expectations were based on the horrible reviews. It’s not great by any means but it’s also not worthless garbage.
Update: the app works consistently for me if I update the temp in a zone, tap on “features,” and then tap on the arrows down by “status as of.” This updates your app and for some reason, it will ensure that any change you make communicates with your thermostat.
Bryant ought to be embarrassed with this thermostat and app
Have had this system for two years now and contractor has had to replace the thermostat two additional times since original installation. This is a poorly designed product which should be upgraded and replaced. All software upgrades since the beginning have done little to improve performance. Specifically, the heating temperature sensor is quite inaccurate, especially when coming to temperature following overnight lowering. With the “smart recovery” feature, it alway starts the warmup way to early and has typically reached temperature at least 1/2 hour too early. This wastes energy. In addition, the system overheats by a degree or more before eventually reaching equilibrium an hour later. From that point the control is stable. This thermostat is paired with the Bryant 97% efficiency furnace. Other issues include completely inaccurate readings for therms and kWh compared with my home meters and readings on the thermostat are not the same as readings on the app. This system was purchased with way higher expectations that what has been received and Bryant should correct all of these deficiencies ASAP. Customers have invested a a lot of money to upgrade systems and should have every expectation it performs as advertised. I get the distinct impression Bryant doesn’t care.
