Want a smart thermostat but don’t want to spend $250 on something like a Nest Learning Thermostat or an ecobee SmartThermostat? We totally understand, and we’ve got a great option for you to check out. The Honeywell Home RTH6580WF Wi-Fi 7-Day Programmable Thermostat has all the basic features you might want, plus it supports Alexa so you can control it with your voice from anywhere. At $74 on Amazon, you really can’t go wrong.

Here’s the important info from the product page:

  • “Compatibility is Required” Works with virtually any system type except electric baseboards. But Please Note: C-Wire is required for this thermostat to receive power. If you do not have a C-wire, you may be able to use the C-Wire adapter (sold separately) or a G-wire jumper cable which is included with this thermostat. Use of the G-wire jumper cable will allow you to power the thermostat without a C-Wire; however using the G-wire solution means that you will no longer have independent fan control, although the fan will still run while your system is on.
  • 7 day programming with 4 program periods per day can be configured to meet almost any scheduling scenario for ultimate flexibility.
  • Wi-Fi enabled thermostat allows for remote access via smart-phone or computer, free smart-phone app for iPhone, iPad and Android operating systems.
  • Ability to view local weather from web portal or app, Wink App Ready – No Wink Hub Required.
  • In the box you will find: Thermostat, Wall plate (attached to thermostat), Screws and anchors, Quick Start Guide, Thermostat ID Card, Wire labels, User Guide, Quick Reference Card, G Wire Jumper Cable.
