      I have this (actually three of these) themostats. They are perfect for my what I was looking for. I got my first email notification of low temp this week, which thrilled me for some reason. 😉

      There are a few things people need to think about when looking at this product. It requires more wiring. You can’t just throw it in replacing an existing thermostat. You must get a CAT5 wire strung. For you DIYer types, that’s a breeze, I imagine, but I wanted to be sure people consider this when purchasing.

      I put these thermostats on my three hot-water baseboard zones and had the CAT5 run. My electrician spent around a day doing the wiring. Not that big of a deal, but you have to factor this into the cost.

      Once it is set up, you are good to go. You assign a fixed IP address to the thermostat in seconds and then link to Proliphix’s website. From there, you create a user id and can gain access to all of your thermostats from one interface. Or you can log into each individually if you know the URL. Either option is easy.

      I have mine set up with a setback schedule that gives me a lot of flexibility. I just wish I could add my two electric baseboard zones to the system! Maybe Proliphix will provide that thermostat next?!

      Oh, and when you are hooking it all up, the POE patch panel that you end up buying is NOT a switch/router. You must connect 1 CAT5 wire to your router for each thermostat you have on the system. This isn’t really clear in the instructions I read (ok, sort of read). I ended up getting my electrician to hook the first one up and I installed the next two thermostats with the wiring they pulled for me.

      My next project is to figure out if I can attach an outdoor sensor to one of the thermostats to I can see the outside temperature on the web without having that value being incorporated into the thermostat functionality.
