I can see where others may have mlobreps, but the unit works great for me. I had a friend familiar with HVAC systems help me install it on my apartment's two-stage heat pump system. Luckily, I had a C wire for power already run (it was actually labeled Z on the old thermostat). For the record, I have the version of this product sold at Home Depot (it's simply branded 3M Filtrete; same exact underlying product). I would say if you can ensure you have the C wire in place or installed for you (should be cheap) and have a modern wireless router using modern encryption (WPA or WPA2), the unit should work great. As with *any* WiFi device, you can have signal mlobreps related to distance, interference, etc but I have had absolutely none. The thermostat runs on the 2.4GHz wireless band, so if you have a dual-band wireless router, ensure you are either using the 2.4GHz band or 2.4GHz+5.2Ghz (if your router supports simultaneous dual-band). If you're using 5GHz exclusively, the thermostat can't connect, as I learned quickly. I'm using this router: with both 2.4GHz and 5.2GHz bands enabled. Software: I'm running the Thermostat for Windows' program as well as the Android app. The $10 for the premium' version of the Windows software was worth it for me to get the server features, and of course the Android app is free. I've used the website interface a couple times as well; it's decent. They release application updates frequently and keep a good change log, so I'm pleased with the level of support for the software. Misc: I love the fan circulation feature which turns the furnace fan on at an interval you set to keep air circulated, even if heating/cooling isn't active. Previously, I left the fan running all the time because my apartment gets stuffy, which I felt wasted energy. Apparently this feature isn't built into the thermostat; the Thermostat for Windows' software sends the thermostat commands to turn on/off the fan based on your desired interval. Bottom line: it works great, my friends think I'm a nerd for having it, and I love it. **EDIT: I had actually purchased the $320 EcoBee sold here on Amazon. I ended up returning it because it was ten times more complicated to install (had a thermostat and a separate control module you had to mount and wire into the furnace itself). The Radio Thermostat is $200 cheaper and was installed by a novice in under an hour just something to consider.
