iHome Control Wi-Fi 5-in-1 Smart Monitor is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I’ve had this for a year now and does what it says. The light, humidity and temp sensors provide good to know stats in your home while the motion and sound work well for notifications. The both told me recently every time our house sitter came by and the sound also when there was thunder. This works with HomeKit but you can just use the iHome app when away if you don’t have a HomeKit hub, which we don’t.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good in theory, Bad in practice Here is what I bought it for: On weekdays I want to have my electric heater turn on at 6am if the temperature is below 66F and turn off the heater when the temperature gets to 70F. The heater is plugged into an iHome ISP6X, so I thought this would be a nice and easy thing to do. I was able to get both products set up easily ... that is when things started going down hill. The main reason I went with this product was it claimed to be compatible with the Apple HomeKit. Technically, it is ... but it really isn't. I can see the temperature, humidity, light level, and any motion detected in HomeKit. However, I can only write rules based on motion, not by temperature. Although this was disappointing, I didn't think it was too bad because I figured I could still use the iHome Control app to create the automation rules I wanted. I was able to set up the rules, but they have not worked reliably. I have to manually turn on and off the heater almost every time. For a couple weeks, the heater would turn off when it was supposed to, and I think it has turned on a couple times, but not consistently and not at all in the past 2 weeks. I give this 2 stars because I see potential and can at least see what the temperature in my office is using my iPhone or iPad and turn on my heater manually. I would give it 3 stars if any automation rules actually worked, and 4 or 5 stars if it really worked 100% with Apple HomeKit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seems accurate, terrible automation The measurements seem accurate. However I purchased this product to use in conjunction with an iHome Plug to control a heater in a small bedroom. The automation set up was easy but it works very inconsistently at best- very very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not accurate, what’s the point? It’s reporting me on the app 71.1F while it’s 77F on the monitor and on the regular wall thermometer. It’s also not sensing the movement and notice while I’m right in front of the device within 5 feet and not sensing the changes in lightening when I turn my table light on in the dark. It all seems to worked ok yesterday when I received it and set it up for testing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very affordable, lacking features and reliability In general I am happy with the purchase. The two criticism I have are that the reliability is not rock solid and its features are limited. On a couple of occasions it has gone offline and has had to be unplugged and plugged back in. While generally not an inconvenience, when away, reliability is more critical. The device lacks means to show historical data. A graph of temperature and humidity over the past week or month would be very nice. The sensor display and the iHome app can show different values. The display will show 21% while the app shows 19%.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy setup, clever idea. I wanted an automation sensor for coming home, but automation isn’t quite there yet. Readings are accurate and setup is good. Power is a simple usb cord which would be good at a PC but is a little short and slightly awkward in some other places. Kind of would be nice if it was rechargeable instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat Device Wanted to have a low value of temperature to trigger a heater to be turned on when away, wanted a light to be turned on when motion detected and this does the trick. The UPS delivery was so slow that I thought the horse pulling the stage coach pulled up lame.
