Ratings and Reviews
Nexia app works great!
Our new house came with a Trane XR724 smart thermostat already installed. Scrolling thru the menus showed it had WiFi capability. Cool I thought! I was at first disappointed to find out it only works with a Nexia hub or app, which I had never heard of before. So I installed the app on my iPhone and created an account. Then it came time to get the app and the thermostat to talk to each other. The good news it’s the app takes you step by step thru the process. For security reasons I recommend configuring your router to have a guest WiFi separate (lan access blocked) from your main WiFi and tell the thermostat (via the app) to use the guest WiFi. Once everything is configured, the app talks to the “cloud” and then the “cloud” talks to the thermostat and the thermostat reports back what it’s doing. The thermostat can be fully controlled from anywhere there is an internet connection.
However, I have not been able to get Alexa to work with the Nexia app. The Alexa skill for Nexia is enabled but Alexa says it can’t find the thermostat.
5 stars but do have a strong recommendation for the app developer
Suggestion for app developer: I do love the majority of the features over my former thermostat with an app, but there is one feature that I already sorely miss. This would be the ability to manually adjust the temperature different from the schedule running but with a system end time versus running at that temp until the next schedule period which could be hours later. An example for you would be doing vigorous housecleaning that causes a person to get hot such as mopping, dusting and vacuuming where I would previously set the temp for cooler for about an hour duration and then it would automatically revert back to the scheduled temperature at the end of that hour. I have to remember to go back and set back to Run Schedule when done or realize I didn’t when I get too cold when the work is done. Thanks for considering this valuable update.
Nice control But could be better
What’s great: Having internet control from your phone while away from home plus the ability to view run history so you can tell if utility power is out, or your system is down. It does also operate as a hub to run other compatible things such as a camera.
What’s not: The Nexia thermostat touchscreen is terrible. Most of the time it does not work and you can only make changes using a mobile device or computer. Their is no way to do a temporary hold for a set time such as when you have a party with lots of people the way Honeywell units work. You can only set it on permanent hold and then you must remember to change it back. It takes forever to reboot the thermostat. The hub operation has very limited functionality.
Summary: Delete the hub. I would much rather have better HVAC operating options, since anyone wanting a hub would purchase a more sophisticated model such as Samsung’s SmartThings to run household equipment. The thermostat application is poor system design with mediocre capability. I will probably change it out to Honeywell.
