Two features that would make a huge difference in the function of the wyze thermostat:
a 1.6 degree headband option. This is supposedly the dead band of the nest.
graph of at least 2 days of temperature, setpoint, heat enable, fan enable and cool enable. This will give a lot of insight into short cycling, etc.
welcome back to the User Community Forum @WilliamOClayton!
Wyze calls their ‘deadband’ a ‘Minimum Comfort Zone’. It is mentioned in the
Thermostat User Guide as a default 5° range that can be adjusted from 3° to 10°.
However, I have not yet found the exact spot within the settings to actually adjust this.
There is currently a
# topic requesting enhancement of this feature: wishlist
For thermostats the range setting is a great way to keep comfortable. However: if you realize you want the heat a degree warmer and that degree would violate the minimum 5-degree separation between “heat to” and “cool to” you end up having to edit the “cool to” first.
The cleaner way would be to eschew the two dials altogether and let me specify a target temp on a dial and a +/- spread in a slider under it.
On the device you could do this as a two stage: one dial at to set the target, another …
For the expanded data in the Thermostat Usage Graphs, that is a great feature to have. There is also a
# topic for that as well: wishlist
Add an energy report: daily, weekly, monthly, and year over year so we can see duration of both fan usage and compressor usage separately were on as compared to the year prior, day prior, month prior and year over year. Honeywell has one but not enough functionality

I’m referring to the “temperature differential” setting. 1 degree short cycles, and 2 degrees is noticeable. There is a 0.5 setting, a 1.5 would be reasonable in my opinion.
If your unit is short cycling on a 1° differential, it is either oversized for your space or the room with the thermostat is getting all the airflow in a much greater proportion to the rest of the house.
Again, this is something that you can submit for improvement on the
