Before installing or servicing the thermostat, turn
off power to the system at the circuit breaker.


Leave power off until you have finished

installing or servicing.


Shorting the electric terminals at the control

on the heating or cooling system may damage

the thermostat. Do not test the system this way.


You must follow all local codes and ordinances

for wiring the system.


This thermostat should only be powered by

4 AA alkaline batteries or a listed class 2 power
supply at 24 VAC (C-Wire or wall transformer).


An amperage higher than 1 amp to each
thermostat relay load may cause damage to

the thermostat.


Verify that the system is 24 VAC. If the old system
is labeled as 120 or 240 volts or has wire nuts,
the system is high voltage. Do not install the
thermostat to a high voltage system. Contact

a local HVAC professional for help. 2 | Smart Thermostat

The Existing Thermostat
1. Test the System
Verify that the heating and/or cooling system is
operating properly before you try to install the

new thermostat.

DO NOT
test the system by shorting electric
terminals at the furnace or air conditioner.

This may damage the thermostat.
2. Turn Power Off

Turn all heating and cooling systems off. This can
be done at the circuit breaker.
CAUTION: DO NOT REMOVE
the existing
thermostat until power has been turned off

at the circuit breaker.


Once power to the heating AND cooling systems
is off, follow these steps:

3. Remove Thermostat Cover

Remove the cover from the existing thermostat.
Do not disconnect the wires yet.
TIP: Take a picture of the wires before you
detach them from the existing thermostat

for future reference.

4. Label All Existing Wires

Label all existing wires, one at a time, with the
labels provided.
Make sure the wires are labeled correctly. If you
have an unidentified wire, it may be necessary to
identify the wire where it connects to the heating
or air conditioning equipment.
PREPARATION
If replacing an old thermostat,
the new thermostat can be
mounted in its place.

If a new location is desired

it will be necessary to move

the wiring.
New installations and
relocation should follow the
accompanying guidelines
to ensure the most accurate
temperature reading and

ease of use.

Mount thermostat on an
inside wall, approximately

5 ft. (1.5m) above the floor

in a frequently used room.

Do not install in locations near
appliances or devices that
affect the local temperature
such as televisions, lamps,

or dryers.

Avoid areas that are exposed
to large temperature
variances, such as: direct
sunlight, near an AC unit,
above or below auxiliary heat
and air vents, and drafts

from windows.

Be aware of what is on the
other side of the wall where
the thermostat is being
installed. Do not install on
walls adjacent to unheated
rooms, stoves, or housing hot
water pipes.

Damp areas will not only
affect the humidity reading

of the thermostat, but could
lead to corrosion and shorten
the life of the thermostat.

Install in a location with good
air circulation. Stagnant air
will not accurately reflect the
rate of temperature change in
the room. Avoid areas behind
open doors, corners,

and alcoves.

Wait until construction

and painting are finished

before installing.

TIP: Take another picture of the wires to
document connections for easy reference.

Do not disconnect wires before labeling them.
CAUTION:
Wiring can vary for each
manufacturer. Label all wiring before

removing it from the existing thermostat.

Disconnect all of the wires and remove the
existing thermostat.
TIP: Remember to secure the wires so they
don’t fall into the wall.
Prepare the Wires
Follow these guidelines for safe and secure

wire connections:


Ensure the wires are a proper gauge

between 18-24 AWG.

Make sure wires have exposed straight ends
about 1/8” long.
CAUTION:
Verify that the system is 24 VAC.

If the old system is labeled as 120 or 240 volts

or has wire nuts, the system is high voltage.

Do not install the thermostat to a high voltage
system. Contact a local HVAC professional

for help.
Install the Back Plate
Use the bubble level provided
on the back plate as a guide.
Mark where the screws will go
with a pencil through the screw
holes on the back plate.


TIP: If necessary, use the trim
plate to cover up any marks
or holes left from the old
thermostat. Attach the trim
plate before securing the
back plate to the wall.
TIP: Drill holes with 3/16”
drill bit to tap in the drywall
anchors for added support.
Wire Your New Thermostat
Reconnect the wires to the

new thermostat and indicate
the connected wires with a
pencil in the image below.

This information will be

needed when configuring

the thermostat.

TIP: If you have extra wires do
not install them in the new
thermostat. Please contact
your local HVAC professional
for additional assistance.

If you have R, connect it to RH.

If you have RH & RC, remove
the black jumper in the
lower left corner of the back
plate terminal board with
needlenose pliers.

Always replace the batteries at least once a year.
This will protect the thermostat from damage and
corrosion by leaking batteries.

If the home is unoccupied for a month or more,
such as vacation homes, you should replace the
batteries as a preventive measure against battery
failure while you are away.

Always use new batteries as replacements.

Install Thermostat Body to Back Plate
Verify that any excess wire is tucked back into the
wall to allow room for the thermostat to sit flush
against the back plate.

Press the thermostat body firmly into the back
plate mounted to the wall. Ensure that the pins

on the body are correctly aligned with the header
attached to the terminal board on the back

plate. Failure to do so could cause damage

to the thermostat.
Turn the Power On
Restore power to all the heating and cooling
systems. This can be done at the circuit breaker.

Insert Batteries Into the Thermostat
The thermostat can be powered by battery or

24 VAC. If a wall transformer is used to power

the thermostat, connect between C and RH.

Ensure the batteries are installed following the
specified polarity markings on the thermostat.
CAUTION:
Special Battery Warning


Always replace the batteries as soon as you have
low battery levels, indicated by “LOW” then “BATT”
flashing on the display. If the batteries drain, the
thermostat could leave the HVAC system on

or off, overheating or freezing the home. 10 | Smart Thermostat

Heating or Cooling Doesn’t Turn On When
the Set Point is Above or Below the Room
Temperature
To prevent damaging the compressor, the
thermostat inserts a delay when cycling the
compressor. If you think the system should be
on and it’s not, then change the set point to be
2 degrees beyond the current set point and wait
5 minutes to see if the system turns on. If not,
contact a local HVAC professional.
Heat Pump is “Cooling When it Should

be Heating” or “Heating When it Should

be Cooling”
Because both types of heat pump reversing valves
share a single terminal on your thermostat back
plate, you need to be sure you have the thermostat
configured for the correct wire. Try switching the
O/B configuration setting through your online
account. Contact a local HVAC professional for
further help with this issue.
Exclude the Thermostat From the

Z-Wave Network
If for some reason the thermostat must be
excluded from the network, follow the steps

below to do so.
1.
Set the thermostat to
OFF
mode.
2.
Press and hold the exclusion button on
the Z-Wave controller. Refer to controller
documentation for more information.
3.
Press and hold the
DOWN

button on the
thermostat to enter exclusion mode. Release the
button when the
RADIO

icon lights up.
4.
When the
RADIO

icon flashes red, the
thermostat has now been successfully excluded
from the network.
Batteries Drain Quickly
If a thermostat is included using a “C” Wire, that
information is saved in the network and cannot
be changed unless excluded and included again
without a “C” Wire connected. The same applies to
thermostats included on battery power.
If you find your thermostat batteries are
draining unusually fast, make sure the “C”-Wire
connection is still intact.
If a device is included
using the “C” Wire, the Z-Wave communication
never sleeps, and the thermostat will act as a
repeater, sending messages for other devices as
well. If the “C” Wire is removed, this kind of activity
will drain the battery very quickly.
