How to Install a Smart Thermostat

Step

Description

Tips & Warnings

1

Test the current heating and cooling system to ensure it is operating properly.

Do not short electric terminals.

2

Check wiring to confirm a low voltage thermostat system (24 VAC).

High voltage systems are not compatible. Look for 2-4 thick wires for high voltage, and 2-9 thin wires for low voltage.

3

Turn off power to the heating and cooling systems.

Use a voltage detector to ensure no live current. Do not remove the existing thermostat before the power is off.

4

Remove the cover.

Take a picture of the wires for reference but do not disconnect them yet.

5

Label all existing wires with the provided labels.

If there’s an unidentified wire, trace it to the equipment.

6

Remove the old thermostat.

Secure the wires to prevent them from falling into the wall, e.g., by wrapping them around a pencil.

7

Install the new baseplate.

Use the provided level, mark the screw points, and drill holes if necessary. Be careful not to drill into electrical wires.

8

Connect the wires to the new thermostat.

Match the wire labels to the terminals. Do not force the wires; use a pen to release them if needed.

9

Install the batteries in the new thermostat.

Follow polarity markings. If using a transformer, connect between C and RH.

10

Attach the thermostat to the back plate.

Ensure the excess wire is tucked in and the pins align correctly with the terminal board.

11

Turn the power back on at the circuit breaker.

12

Connect your thermostat to the Control Panel or Automation Hub.

Follow the manual for specific steps related to your system.
