Had issues with the product and was ghosted by smart home shop after multiple attempts to get in contact.
Great smarthome product, that works well with alexa automation. having our heatpump automatically come on before we get up in the morning means our old place is warm and cosy and reduces the amount of condensation by 60%
This little device is awesome! I have factory wifi with my Daikin aircon but its very basic. This little Sensibo device does everything plus more! I love all the features, controlling the aircon from anywhere via the app is great, setting temperature parameters so it keeps the room at a constant temperature is great! So is the feature where it knows your location and turns the aircon off when you leave and when you get close to home, it turns it back on again (if you enable this feature) its a great feature to save you money. Ive also connected mine to my Google Home so I can control via voice commands. So easy to set up, so easy to use! I highly recommend this product.
Our house has, quite possibly, the worlds oldest and dumbest Heat Pump. Sensibo works perfectly every time. We can remotely turn it off/on and change temperatures through our phones or Google home devices. I can't remember the last time we used the remote.
