My brother has it and can happily say he's happy. No WIFI issues and controling everything over the phone is something he was looking for.

With Hilo, if you cancel the service, you're stuck with a non-fonctionnal system ?

It's the former founder of Aube Technologies, which makes thermostats. He sold Aube and then got back into the thermostat game with Sinopé, which started with a smart thermostat for electric baseboard heaters and now offers many other smart home products.

Edit: Forgot to add that it's a Québec company!

I believe that if you cancel the contract, you just need to pay the full price of the units that they overcharge you.

Wait for black friday and you will get a great deal with Hilo. I remember being able to get 3 smart thermostats for 75$, installation included.

This sale is not as hot as the Black Friday sale where I had 25% off on the ZigBee thermostats, but still better than regular price which reasonnable.

Thanks, I was waiting to order their 50A smart controller for my pool pump. 15% off is better than nothing.

FYI, there's a custom integration possible with HomeAssistant. Also Sinope Neviweb portal works with HydroQuebec for the new Flex rate and peak period during the winter.

Why would Philips have anything to do with SmartThings? Philips uses their own implementation of zigbee which isn't compatible.

I've installed a number of their Zigbee dimmers and their water valves.
(Used with Hubitat).
A breeze to install, and excellent in operation.
(Hubitat now has the ability to update Zigbee firmware of devices.)
Very reliable and dependable.

I have a couple of their Zigbee floor thermostats that work perfectly with smartthings. What problem are you having?

Using the Zigbee baseboard thermostats with HomeAssistant plus the HomeKit bridge to control from Apple, works great. Only thing not supported is putting the time on display. I haven’t looked into it yet, but probably possible to add to the ZHA module.

Note one thing that didn’t occur to me until after purchase that now because I have power monitoring through HomeAssistant, the baseboards don’t cycle between max power and off but instead output a lower power once the temperature is achieved to maintain the heat.

I have used Hilo this winter.
Works fine. Mobile application is pretty basic but apparently a new revamped version is coming out this year.
Big advantage is getting paid rewards for lowering heating and using less electricity during peaks. Can get hundreds of $ back during winter season with minimal effort (depending on your house size and usual usage).

Mine are baseboard thermostats, the older ones with their.hub as well as one of their new ones. They all look like this in ST app. There is no temperature showing on the tile.

Don't they just switch you to a flex rate? Thing that you can do yourself without going with Hilo?

No. Your rate stays the same but you receive notifications a day in advance for peak periods during which for every kWh you save (compared to a reference of a similar period) you get rewarded 55 cents. Without much effort this winter I accumulated a good amount of cash back.
