Mysa Smart Thermostat for baseboards BC only

Deal Link:
Expiry:
November 12, 2021
Similar to previous years, Mysa has their smart thermostats for electric baseboard and in-floor heating on sale combined with a BC Hydro rebate.

$10 off per thermostat with code BCREBATES10
10% off with code MYSA10 (thanks CornPops!)
$40 off per thermostat after sale via rebate on BC Hydro website (bill credit or Interac)

Mysa also has volume discounts, so the V1 of their thermostat can be had as low as $79.95. I'll personally be going with V2 though, feels worth the extra for a smaller device.

Available at Best Buy & Home Depot as well but without the additional % discount at this time.

Code "MYSA10" is better than "BCREBATES10"! The former gives you 10% off your entire order, whereas the latter is $10 off per device.

We have about seven baseboards in our home each with their own thermostat. Would I need to buy a smart unit for each baseboard or can this be rigged up somehow to control the entire house's baseboards?

TLDR; One of these will not control all your baseboard heaters. You can have different combination of baseboard heaters (Don't need to change all 7)

I don't think using 1 of these to control all your baseboards makes any sense?
The thermostat will still be detecting the temperature of the vicinity and it adjusts the baseboard heaters in order to achieve a set temperature.

Each of these smart thermostats can be controlled via Mobile app as I think the controllers connect onto your home Wifi.

Baseboard heater thermostats are like switches that control the line power (240v) to the heater. Even if it was somehow possible to control them all from one system, you would still some sort of modules placed in all 7 of the baseboard wiring to act as the switch.

Might want to check out Sinope. They have a similar deal/rebate right now and they are slightly cheaper ($57 after rebate). They also sell lower costs Zigbee thermostats for $40 after rebate but you need a compatible Zigbee hub

You would need 7. One for each.

I bought the Mysa v1 a couple of years ago for my electric baseboards. I wasn't impressed. It looks like they've addressed some of my complaints in v2. The v1 was too big; the v2 is smaller. The v1's touch panel was not pleasant to use; there was lag and no feedback. You would press ^ to raise the temperature and then 2 seconds later, the number would increase. It looks like they have "audible feedback" now... which still sounds pretty meh. Physical controls are more pleasant.

Other complaints:
- It only shows the current temperature and not the set temperature. Would be better to show both.
- The app was super basic; not sure if it's improved in the last couple of years...

Thanks for the feedback! I think we are just going to try to keep them turned off as much as possible, so probably not worth investing in a smart thermostat

If you're looking for a cheaper options I'd go with this. I bought 5 for my townhouse. Felt like mysa was going overboard since i don't really need the smart function. These cheaper units are still programmable and saved me a lot more money then the older turn dial thermostat.

You will need to buy one for each baseboard. Each thermostat controls only one baseboard.

Check your wires before buying any. There is a compatible checker. In one of our room we only have two wires so we couldn’t use it

This is awesome, I’ve been looking into this and want to get 3-5; I don’t plan to replace all in the house just the main areas (and would be too expensive if I tried to do that). It’s also the recommend pick from wirecutter

I went to the website and got a pop up to tell me to sign up for newsletter “to get notified on Black Friday deals”, does anyone know what kind of sale they had in the past?

I did the same (bought 5 for main rooms since they are about all we use even though there are 11 baseboards total in the house). It looks like when I purchased 2019 Black Friday it was $20 discount per unit for $100 savings over 5 units, in addition to the $20 per unit discount for buying 5, and then $40 each rebate at the time as well (after tax).

Thanks for sharing. Seems like it will be better to wait for Black Friday deals, but also in order to get the prices that you got, probably need to purchase at least five units

True on the 5 units for $20 off per unit. At 3 units it's $10 off per. If waiting to Black Friday, you may want to try to determine if the rebate will be around that long. $40 off for the rebate is definitely the largest savings.
