I’ve had the CT101 from Lowe’s for almost 2 years, and have used both the standard ST handler and rboy’s handler. Both work fine, rboy’s definitely has more features and a better interface in the app.
However, I’ve had nothing but problems with changing the thermostat modes either from the device in the ST app itself, or from smart apps like GreenThermostat or WebCoRE… Seems like once I turn the thermostat off from within ST (device or app), I can’t get it to respond to commands until I physically go over and cycle through the modes again. It’s really quite frustrating when I am trying to manage the thermostat based on doors/windows being left open.
So, basically, if it’s nice out and someone opens the window(s) at home, the thermostat will switch to Off mode, but when everything is closed up again, I cannot reliably get it to change back to the prior mode (either Heat or Cool)
@TheSmartestHouse I’m wondering if the CT100 Plus would have the same issues, and, if not, would it roughly fit in the footprint of my CT101? If I could swap it out to get it functioning rock solid reliably, I would replace it in a heartbeat…
