Hunter Universal Internet Thermostat

There are so many things I can do with my smartphone and now I can even control the temperature of my thermostat at home!  Energy costs are one of the most expensive monthly items for consumer households.  Now you can dramatically cut heating and cooling costs by installing a Hunter Fan Universal Internet Thermostat, which is controlled in-home or remotely with a smartphone app.  It is so awesome!!!


The Universal Internet Thermostat is great for people who want to warm or cool their homes before they come home from work, and save money by turning off their heating and cooling equipment when they are traveling.  Do you have a vacation home you’d like to monitor?  How about a parent’s home you’d like to help control?

Retailing for only $99.99, the Hunter Fan Universal Internet Thermostat works with virtually all types of heating and cooling systems, features a 5 Minute Installation System with a plug and play internet gateway, runs on 4 AA batteries for up to one year and supports 24 Volt “C-Wire” operation.

The first three months of Internet connectivity are free, as part of a 100% risk-free trial.  Consumers can opt to pay $9.99 a year for Internet connectivity or pay a $49.99 one-time fee for product life-time internet connectivity.  Subscribers can also set their devices to receive email alerts when a home’s temperature exceeds a pre-determined set point, indicating an issue that may lead to pipe freezing or mold building, or when it’s time to change the filter or battery level is low.

The best-in-class App can be downloaded from iTunes App Store, or a web and mobile app on for use with smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs.

What can you do with the best-in-class smart phone app?

Multiple Location & Device Management  – Have a vacation home you need to monitor?  How about a parent’s home you’d like to help control?  Anywhere you have a Universal Internet Thermostat installed it can be managed through the smartphone app.  So whether you’re headed to your vacation home and need to lower the air or you want to help your parent set their thermostat schedule, you have the flexibility to do it – all from the palm of your hand.

Unlimited Scheduling – With our busy lives, and with more than one person in a household, things can get pretty complicated.  The Universal Internet Thermostat allows for flexible and unlimited scheduling for every day of the week.

Sharing – Does more than one person in your household need the flexibility of controlling your thermostat settings?  Or perhaps you’ve let friends have your condo for the week?  With the Universal Internet Thermostat, you can invite family members and friends to help control your thermostat.

Weather Forecasts – View combined forecasts for all locations without having to look anywhere else to figure it out.

Alerts – Set up alerts if batter life is low, filter needs to be changed, or if a predetermined temperature set point is exceeded.  For example, when a home’s temperature drops or raises to a pre-determined set point this can indicate that something is wrong with the heating and cooling system.

Availability – On-line and in select home improvement and discount retailers across North America, including Lowes, Canadian Tire, and Walmart.  Product launched on October 11, 2012.

We really like the Hunter Fan Universal Internet Thermostat and have found it really handy the past few months we’ve been using it.  I can’t tell you how many times we’ve left to go on a road trip or vacation and I ask Frank if we turned off the heater at home.  Now I don’t have to worry about it because we can control it from our Smartphones!  This is a great product to either buy for you or to give as a gift.  A big thanks to Hunter Fans for this product review and giveaway.
