The Lux Products TX1500E Smart Temp Programmable Thermostat features a 5-1-1 day program: Weekdays, Saturday, Sundays and Special Program, which allows storing a customized temporary program. This do-it-yourself easy to install device has a patented user-friendly program dial for simple and easy programming. The large display is easy to read with backlit light, single touch soft touch buttons, less battery indicator and 12/24 hour clock. The H button on the device works as humidity indicator. The thermostat's Graphic filter monitor helps in setting the filter usage limits from 0-180 and/or 365 day in duration.
The front panel keyboard can lock the display so that it cannot change with any buttons. The device is recalibrated to factory setting of the temperature so that it can be matched with additional thermostats. The thermostat is also designed for smart recovery that teaches the thermostat to learn the time taken for the furnace and AC to reach the programmed temperature and settings. The TX1500E is energy efficient and can save up to 33% on energy bills. As it comes pre-programmed with a default energy-conservation heating and cooling schedule, it is designed to save up to $180 in energy cost over one year.
However, some users feel the installation will be little difficult if unaware of the wiring system and programming is simple but time consuming. The wire mounting screws are short. The adjustable swing variable is not very efficient as well. Some users wished it featured high/low desired temperature limits as well.
Overall, the Lux Products TX1500E Smart Temp Programmable Thermostat is highly recommended by users as home or office thermostat for its simple yet unbeatable utility and affordable price range. The TX1500E works with most 24-volt heating and air-conditioning systems, including single-stage heating and cooling, heat pumps without auxiliary or emergency heat, central air, and Millivolt wall heaters/ gas fireplaces.
