adi wires i'm george from alarm grid today i'm going to be showing you guys how to learn in 86 pro z-wave thermostat to an IQ to plus all right now the t6 z-wave thermostat first you need to make sure it's a z-wave all right only z-wave thermostats will learn in to the IQ 2 panel plus this process that I'm gonna be showing you guys today can also be used on a normal IQ too so if you guys have a normal IQ too you can do the exact same process I'm just using an IQ 2 plus for today's video and again I'm gonna be using Honeywell's or residuals t6 pearl z-wave thermostat alright if it's a Wi-Fi thermostat it will not work now if you guys have an IQ 2 plus panel it also does not matter which virgin you guys have whether it's four three nineteen point five megahertz whether it's 345 megahertz or the 433 megahertz it doesn't matter which IQ to platinum panel plus you have the process is gonna work you just have to make sure that the thermostat is a z-wave thermostat alright so the first thing you want to do whenever you're learning in devices is exclude the thermostat so to exclude the thermostat you just have to go to your advanced settings on your IQ two plus so I'm gonna hit the top button up here I'm gonna go to my settings it right now is letting me know that I have no Wi-Fi access if your panels connected to Wi-Fi it won't give you this air I'm just gonna hit OK for now since that's neither here nor there we're gonna go to advanced settings when I click on vance settings it's gonna ask me to enter in a code you need to enter in your installer code or your dealer code default codes are one one one one or two two two two so either one of those should work unless you or your company have changed them so I'm just gonna use for example one one one one I'm gonna go to installation devices we're learning in a z-wave device or sorry we're excluding it first so we go to z-wave devices and you're going to see a clear device when you go to clear device it is gonna tell you to press the Z way exclude on the thermostat and I'm going to show you guys how to get to that as well when you're setting this up you want to make sure that you don't have the thermostat really far away as it might not hear it my thermostats not that far away so I don't have to take mine off so I'm just gonna go ahead and hit clear device and it's gonna go into a listening mode so now it's listening for my thermostat to go into an exclusion mode and I'm gonna show you guys how to do that right now all right so now that we're at the thermostat we have the panel in a listening mode to exclude the device we're gonna go ahead and just if there's thermostat screen isn't on you just want to tap it you're then gonna go to menu use the left and right arrow keys to make your way over to z-wave setup you're gonna hit select and there should be an exclude button once you hit select on the exclude as long as the iq2 panel is still in that listening mode it will automatically exclude it from whatever device it was previously learning into allowing you to include it later on so now as you saw the thermostat as soon as you hit this exclude on the thermostat it said excluded and then it also gives you a confirmation on the it2 panel saying that the thermostat is deleted from the network successfully so now that the thermostat is cleared and it's fully excluded now all you have to do is just learn it in and include it so I'm just gonna hit OK and now we have to hit add device when we hit add device we're gonna hit include it's going to go into a listening searching mode now we have to include it at the thermostat so when you exclu to the thermostat it brought you back out to the to the main screen so you have to go back into menu you have to go into the z-wave setup and you include or you add device all right I'm gonna show you guys that right now as well so you go ahead and tap on your thermostat to light it up we're gonna go ahead and go to menu hit the right arrow key to go to z-wave setup select and then you're going to go ahead and do set control now before you guys do set control you want to make sure that the panel is in the include mode so I'm going to hit include it goes into the learning mode and now I can go ahead and hit select on the include on the thermostat and you should see here that now it brings up the note id3 it will let you know that the type thermostat was added and you can even play around with the thermostat name you can give it a custom name so I'll name it alarm grid thermostat and you just hit add and it'll let me know that the alarmgrid thermostat has been added successfully once the thermostat is included I just hit the house button and if I go to my IQ 2 panel and I swipe I now see the thermostat I can control the temperature by going up and down if you guys have alarm calm access the thermostat should now be included into your alarm.com service and the application as well you just if you don't see the thermostat option available on your account you just need to let your company know that you want it enabled alright and again depending on what company you're with it might just be free of charge some other companies may charge you extra for it if you have home automation enabled it shouldn't be any extra charge but just get in contact through the company let them know hey I just added a z-wave thermostat and I need the thermostat feature enabled on my alarm comm you can control the thermostat from there you can create scenes so whenever you arm the system away you can have the temperature go up to normal temperature whenever you get home using the geofence features you can have it drop back to a certain temperature that way the house is cool by the time you're walking in and just to show you guys I can go ahead and change the temperature by using the down by using the down arrow key it'll actually say they're setting target temperature so actually has to send the command through z-wave back to the thermostat so I'm just gonna leave it at 73 for now and that is just a quick video on how to get your honey your residual t6 Pro z-wave thermostat learned into an IQ 2 + panel and
