Very Limited Functionality
App only does three things: 1) Push button circulation, which I think is pointless (I’m not going to access an app before washing my hands in the sink); 2) Set water temp, which you might do 2-3 times a year; 3) set a schedule for circulation, which I have set everyday nonstop 6:00am - 10:00pm (I don’t like waiting for hot water).
What the app really needs is HomeKit integration that starts circulation based on geolocation of homeowners’ phones. It wouldn’t be that hard to develop and would be the most energy efficient and convenient for users.
It works atleast
For the cost of this unit I would expect a little better functionality but they clearly do not have software developers. It does work though but scheduling can only be 30 minutes and you cannot set at the quarter hour or other. It needs some improvement, but we atleast have an app...
Want more control
Despite the long amount of time to get this system working, the only thing I can do with this app is remotely set the temperature and schedule recirculation mode to on. I want to have more control over recirculation events. Like how often it should recirculate despite the temperature of the gel valve. The gel valve does not take into account whether or not you have copper pipes in slab or insulated PVC. Bottom line is, Thermocirc360 is not worth the cost if you don't have an insulated hot water line.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
