Inexplicably, Honeywell also failed to list those earlier patents in their lawsuit.
A few years ago, I bought one of their round thermostats with an LCD readout to replace an original round with...
Not so sure that Honeywell has a good case. Most of their original patents date from the 80s and are long expired. They filed the same patents again without informing the Patent Office of the prior...

Seriously? You want me (a non-professional) to comment on your comments about a device you've never used? You don't like it, don't buy it.
Personally, I love products that are designed to be user...

I did not sign up early and my stat was just delivered a week ago. However, I'm working 3,000 miles away for at least 6 months so it will be some time before I get to use it.
I'm mostly interested...

Your professional status means you can call me names? I haven't called you any names.
That is not an accurate paraphrase. I said humidity control was not important to me for the five days a...

I have a two stage 40K Infinity.

Since only a minuscule percentage of homeowners ever program their stats, they might be right. Or perhaps most stats are so user unfriendly that they never get programmed. Having industry figures...

Its interesting how reactionary people get with new products. You did the same fussing about modulating furnaces, yet the market moved to them anyway. If what you say is true here, perhaps no one...

As usual, you prefer personal attacks over discussing content. You still haven't said what features I might be giving up.
I'm perfectly happy with my Infinity furnace. I consider the Infinity...

Pretty interesting theory. I wonder why anyone bought Apple products with good ones already on the market.

If you read very slowly, you will also see that I will use a pro to do that. No need to give me DIY info, I'm not going to use it, nor did I ask.

Simulate? It is direct control, just like any other two stage thermostat.

Why can't you make a profit on it? It has a normal retail margin. They are going to depend heavily on contractors as they sell and install the vast majority of stats.
Which applies to every...

What features are you referring to? I had to fight to even get the Infinity Controller over a standard programmable. Frankly, I don't need most "features" such as humidity control for the five days a...

I just signed up to reserve one. Sent an email question to them today on Sunday and they answered it on Sunday! They sure have some dough.
I have a two-stage Infinity and wanted to make sure it...
Set the stat up as new installation.

Did your old furnace keep you warm? It probably had an efficiency of around 60 percent. Simple math will show you that you need around 70,000 output. Most likely it was oversized anyway, especially...

Do you send emails? Using an iPhone app in this context is like sending an email to yourself. But by all means, continue to wear tinfoil. Can't hurt!

It is relatively cheap for what it is. The only close competitor is the Ecobee and it costs less than the Ecobee, has more features and is easier to use. It also costs less than proprietary stats...

50 million dollars in funding buys a lot of tech! I do remember reading somewhere on the site or in the reviews (would you believe both the New York Times and Forbes have reviewed this?) about...
Whole house fans are simply a more efficient type of window fans. An appliance. You can buy the wrong appliance for the application, and install and use it incorrectly. In the right application, for...

Well, those are amazing finds. Makes you wonder about those blower door tests, explains why you think you need a humidifier, and clearly your energy costs are inflated (did you suspect that)?

I was referring to Comfort versus Efficiency setting for their effect on the fan speed. As far as I know, that is all they do. For heating, Comfort lowers the fan speed to increase the supply...
