How Do I Remotely Control a T6 Pro Z-Wave Thermostat from an Android or iOS Phone?
You can remotely control a T6 Pro Z-Wave Thermostat from an Android or iOS Phone by using the mobile app for an interactive service platform. One of the best features of Z-Wave devices is the ability to control them remotely from an interactive platform like Alarm.com or Total Connect 2.0.
The Honeywell T6 Pro is a smart thermostat that connects across a Z-Wave network. It is a Z-Wave Plus thermostat, meaning that it will take advantage of extended range and improved reliability of Z-Wave Plus when used with a compatible Z-Wave Plus controller. The T6 Pro Z-Wave can also be used with a classic Z-Wave controller, but it will only have the range of standard Z-Wave device.
In order to control the Honeywell T6 Pro Z-Wave Thermostat from your phone, you must connect it to your Z-Wave network. You will then be able to access it from the Total Connect 2.0 Mobile App or the Alarm.com Mobile App. Whether you use TC2 or ADC will depend on the interactive service for your alarm system. As a general rule, Honeywell Panels almost always use TC2, while alarm control panels from other manufacturers will use Alarm.com or some other type of interactive service platform.
If you want to control the Honeywell T6 Pro Z-Wave Thermostat from your phone, complete the following steps:
1. Include into Z-Wave network. Before you can control your T6 Thermostat remotely, you must include it into your local Z-Wave network. This will involve putting your Z-Wave controller into its inclusion mode and activating the inclusion function on the T6 Thermostat. It is recommended that you exclude the lock from the network before attempting to include it. More information on pairing the T6 Thermostat with a Z-Wave network can be found here.
2. Get the mobile app. Both ADC and TC2 have their own respective mobile apps that are available for free download from both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Download the appropriate mobile app to your Android or iOS device.
3. Log-in to your account. Open the mobile app you downloaded, and provide your Total Connect 2.0 or Alarm.com account information. This will log you into the account so that you can control your T6 Thermostat.
4. Control the T6 Thermostat. Both ADC and TC2 have automation menus for controlling smart home devices like the T6 Z-Wave Thermostat. Navigate to the automation menu, and locate the T6 device you included with your network. Please note you might need to sync your panel before the T6 Thermostat will appear in the menu.
