This is Homewerks newest model, the Radio Thermostat CT-80. It’s an updated version of the older model, the Homewerks CT-30 as reviewed on this site. It has all the features you would expect from a WiFi thermostat and is very similar to it’s older counterpart. The price point is a little higher, however. The main differences between these models is the fact that the CT-80 can control 3 of heat as opposed to 2 as found in the CT-30. Another difference is the CT-80 has the ability to set 7 temperature points during a single day as opposed to 4 found in the CT-30.

Homewerks is still much lesser known than its competitors, but still has mobile and web interfaces that allow you to control the heating and/or cooling of your home and business from anywhere in the world. When you are connected to your Homewerks via the WiFi/internet you can adjust every feature as if you were standing in front of it allowing you to set the temperature or change the 7-day programming feature.
