The way the wyze thermostat settings work are honestly very disappointing.
I have it set on “max comfort” which offers “very accurate control”. However it doesn’t seem to change anything. It still has a 5 degree spread in the temp range you can set it to.
I thought it would work like this:
Setup cooling mode for sleep to 65, home to 72 and away to 74.
Setup heating mode for sleep to 65, home to 67 and away to 62.
But instead each mode (sleep/home/away) has a “heat to” and “cool to” that can’t be set closet than 5 degrees. This is fine for everything besides sleep, which I always want to be on 65.
I understand what they are doing here. They need the spread in case you have it on “auto” mode so it will switch from heat to cool. If they were set right at the same temp in auto mode, it would be a big issue. But even then, surely it could be set closer than 5 degrees. Many companies offer 2 degrees for this mode.
I would love this see a 2 degree spread, which I would be unhappy with, but ultimately find acceptable.
I would love even more to see different profiles for heat and for cool mode that you could set however you wanted if you were willing to manually switch your unit from heat to cool. Which i am happy to do.
