[Best Buy] MYSA Smart Thermostat for Electric Baseboard Heating $119.99

Mysa smart thermostat (for Electric Baseboard Heaters) is on-sale at BestBuy; have been looking to buy one of these for a while now, and they're usually $139 for one or save $10 each if you buy 3 or more.

BestBuy currently has them starting at $119.99, and still save an additional $10 when you buy 3 or more.

How is the overall quality of these products? And they require batteries right?

They works OK for me, they conects to 2.4GHz band and haven't have any connectivity issues. App is good enough but I haven't connect them to my google home. I purely use it to set the schedule and check electricity usage (along with real time/historial room temperature/humidity) and it can be set with a upper limit so people can't crank it all the way up to 30'C and make it hot like a dessert.
Doesn't require batteries as it gets power from the heater power line. Note, this is baseboard heating control, not for furance.

I'm pretty sure they don't require batteries. They're permanently hardwired to your 240V or 120V system.

I have the Stelpro Ki+ smart thermostats and they do not require batteries. I kinda prefer the Stelpro model specifically because it's not WiFi, and runs on z-wave. I'm not a fan of a service potentially going belly up and taking my devices with it. Since this is a pretty niche product by a company that is not as well established as a big player, it's entirely possible that they could go bankrupt and their servers would no longer communicate with your devices.

I love it have already 4 in my house! Good built quality! Made in Canada by a young startup from NL. App is good and reliable. No problem since 2 years! I buy 4 others

I have 2 and they generally work. In about 1 year of ownership, I had one connection issue which required me to reboot a unit and set it up from scratch. Overall, it's pretty simplistic and the app is pretty bare bone. The unit is bigger than you'd think it would be =)

I have one in my master bedroom and absolutely love it! I have never had any issues with connectivity and I find the app to be simple but effective. It's neat to see energy consumption and adjust your usage.

Would definitely recommend the product and company.

Can this be used for an old forced-air electric furnace ?
I.e., normal thermostat in use now.

and you still get $20 off per thermostat when you buy 5 or more, this is a great deal.

I bought them directly from mysa last year, replaced all 6 in my house. not had any issues, setup was simple enough, can view energy usage which is great and helps keep on top of heating bills.

Bought 4 of these last year when they had the Hydro promo. They are fantastic. I use GA, Alexa and Apple HomeKit without issues. Will buy some more. Thanks OP

For those that own this thermostat, if in the unfortunate circumstance that the company goes bankrupt and their servers disappear, does it render these thermostat as useless? That is can you update the heating schedule? Will monitoring still work on your phone? Can you even change the temperature or turn on or off the thermostat?

The devices have touch control. You can still adjust the set point up/down or off at the unit directly. If you have no internet access (or assuming Mysa goes away and they don't offer an offline solution) you can't use the app to monitor or change the schedule. The units however will continue to maintain their schedule that was previously set with the app as the schedule is maintained on the device. I think worst case scenario if Mysa folds, you can either use your previously set schedule, or do a factory reset on the device and it becomes a manal thermostat.

lol ... I was wondering why they were all disappearing from best buy and had a feeling it was an RFD post ... I accidentally came across the best buy sale late yesterday and thought to stroll in today to buy a couple ... all gone in the lower mainland .. paddle across to cowichan if you want one (or order online) ...

**** If purchase direct from Mysa: $40 Fortis BC instant rebate per unit (up to 5) for customers of Fortis BC in Grand Forks, Summerland, Penticton or Nelson Hydro only, purchased between August 7, 2020, and April 30, 2021 ... plus the volume discounts as well ... so a better deal than BB IF you reside in those areas. I couldn't get the hydro rebate to trigger using paypal (apparently it is triggered by postal code when checking out) so I stuck with online purchase at BB.
