How Do I Take My Honeywell T6 Z-Wave Thermostat Off Hold?
You can take your Honeywell T6 Z-Wave Thermostat off hold by pressing the current hold setting and then pressing Run Schedule. This will cancel the current temperature hold for the thermostat and return the T6 to its normally set schedule. Both permanent and temporary holds can be exited.
A hold tells a Honeywell Thermostat to ignore the scheduled temperature settings and keep the HVAC setting at a specified temperature. There are two main types of holds that are used. Temporary Hold (or Hold Until) will hold the temperature for a maximum of 12 hours. Permanent Hold will hold the temperature for an indefinite period of time until the hold is cancelled. There's also Vacation Hold that will hold the thermostat temperature until a specified date. Vacation Hold can only be set with the Honeywell Home App.
Please note that the T6 can only be placed in a hold mode if the device has a temperature schedule that has been configured. If the T6 has no temperature schedule, then the temperature will just be adjusted, and no hold will be needed.By taking the T6 out of hold, the thermostat will resume its normal set schedule. A T6 Pro Thermostat can only be taken out of hold mode if it has been placed in hold mode in the first place.
Note: If you pair the T6 Thermostat with a system that uses an interactive automation platform like TC2 or ADC, then you will no longer be able to set permanent holds locally at the thermostat.
Complete the following steps to place a Honeywell T6 Thermostat into hold mode and then take it out of hold mode.
1. Choose the temperature. Use the + and - keys to adjust the temperature that will be used with the hold. Stop when you reach the desired temperature. The message "Hold Until" will appear, indicating that the T6 is now in a temperature hold.
2. Set the period. Beneath the Hold Until message, a time will be displayed when the hold is scheduled to end. Press the Hold Until message, and the displayed digits will begin blinking. This indicates that the hold time can be adjusted. Use the + and - keys to set the hold period. When finished, press the Hold Until button to confirm the time. The digits should stop blinking, indicating that the hold has been set.
If you want to set a permanent hold, press the Hold Until button. The Permanent Hold button will appear to the left. Press the Permanent Hold Button to confirm the permanent hold. This will exit the hold adjustment screen and leave the message "Permanent Hold" displayed on the screen.
3. Exit the hold. Press either the Hold Until button or the Permanent Hold button depending upon the type of hold that has been set. Then press "Run Schedule" at the bottom of the screen. This will cancel the hold and return the T6 to its normal schedule.
