Installation.

To use this thermostat, you need to ensure that you have a connected Energenie MiHome Gateway and have also installed the Energenie App.

To install the thermostat, you need to carry out the following (This work should only be carried out by someone qualified and competent)

  1. Remove the old thermostat, if it is necessary cut the power off in the installation area.
  2. Remove the back of the thermostat by inserting your finger into the opening and pulling back the panel connections box.
  3. Enter the connection cables to the boiler through the hole in the connections box.
  4. Screw the connections box to the wall, using either the fixings included, or if they are unsuitable for your wall material please use alternative fixings.
  5. Connect the boiler control wires to the W and COM terminals on the connections box.
  6. Insert the AA Batteries into the thermostat.  An LED will flash 3 times, indicating correct insertion.
  7. Fit the thermostat to the connections box on the wall and your thermostat is now ready for use.

Pairing with the MiHome Gateway.

To pair the thermostat to your MiHome Gateway, press the M Button on the side of the unit and then follow the below instructions.  Successful pairing will be indicated by the App or the MiHome server web portal by a message, and the flashing LED icon on the unit’s display.  If the LED icon continues to flash, it could indicate that the MiHome Gateway is either offline or the range between the thermostat and MiHome Gateway needs to be reduced (Maximum distance is 30M in an open space environment).

Conclusion.

I really like the Energenie product range, it’s simple to set up and installation is a breeze. Look out for more Energenie MiHome product reviews over the next couple of weeks too.  This thermostat is simple to install and use in a matter of minutes.  I really like the LED control panel on the front, it looks modern.

Overall though I do recommend the MiHome Thermostat to be added onto your Energenie MiHome range and build up a complete connected home network.
