Inexpensive, can control my heat pump/ac unit from anywhere. Sort of easy to set up even though everything is in Chinese.
No translation yet for IPhone app.
I was looking for a cheaper way to turn on my heater other than paying $300 for a thermostat for my Mr. Slim unit. This unit allows me to turn off my unit from anywhere in the world. Programming the buttons are a little tricky, as the Mr. Slim remote works a little differently than how a TV would work (one button touch sends all settings on the remote). So instead of programming a 'volume up' button or 'channel up' button, I have 3 buttons set plus the power button. Low is about 65 F or 18C, Medium is 70 F or 20 C, and High is 80 F or 25 C. That's all I really need.
Once the app gets translated to English, this unit will easily beat the Logitech. It does, however, rely on an outside server in Beijing to establish a connection with your mobile device (verified via looking at my firewall logs), which is a little unnerving but I guess the NSA has been spying on me for years so it's nothing new.
