Do I need to port forward my thermostats?

You will only need to port forward your thermostats if you are going to try to access them from outside the LAN and want to communicate directly with them. If you are unfamiliar with how to do port forwarding you can go to portforward.com for step by step instructions.  If you cannot find instruction on portforward.com for your router refer to the users manual or another online source for instructions.

I changed routers and now I can’t see my thermostats on my network, how do I fix this?

If your router credentials changed then the thermostats will not have the correct login info to connect to it. There are multiple ways to fix this problem. The easiest way to fix it if you have many thermostats is to change the security type, SSID and password of the new router to the same security type, SSID and password as the old router. This will allow the thermostats to reconnect without having to adjust the settings.

Why am I getting a message in the IP-Command Center, when I try to set schedules, that says I am outside my heat and cool parameters?

First, check to make sure that your scheduled setpoints are within the the min/max cooling and heating setpoints on the configuration page. If this is correct then check your inactive schedules to make sure they are within the min/max cooling and heating parameters. Even if the schedules are inactive, it could cause an issue if the parameters are outside the min/max setpoints.

How do I set schedules?

From the PC software, Cloud Connect, or directly from the IP address of the thermostat in a browser go to the schedules tab. Check the active box above the schedule number then set the time you would like the schedule to start. Enter the setpoints you would like the schedule to reflect, the cool temperature will be the maximum temperature that will be reached before the air conditioner will turn on and the heat temperature will be the lowest temperature that will be reached before the heat will turn on.
