This is what I finally decided I was looking for in an integrated thermostat. I started with Wi-Fi models.
1 - remote operation and monitoring
2 - fully programmable, both remotely (zwave/Wi-Fi) and at the device
3 - fully operational on and off network
4 - real life response to remote commands
5 - remote operation from within my home automaton app (I do not like changing apps to do things)
The goControl met 1, 5 , & half of 3
The kill blow was the extremely slow response time to remote commands.
The Honeywell 8320z meet all of these requirements and I got mine for about $110.00 each.
