Before pairing the iDevices Thermostat to your Wi-Fi® network, ensure that your Wi-Fi network is running on a 2.4 GHz b/g/n Wi-Fi band and using WPA or WPA2-PSK with AES encryption. If you have multiple wireless networks such as a guest network, a 2.4 GHz network, and a 5 GHz network, please connect your phone or tablet to the 2.4 GHz network for initial set-up. HomeKit™ accessories can't be set up on guest networks.

Note: After changing modes, there is a standard 5-7 minute delay before the Thermostat will call for heating or cooling to protect the compressor for air conditioners and heat pump systems. During this time, the setpoint on the Thermostat display will show in black. Once the delay has passed and the Thermostat calls for heating or cooling, the setpoint will show in red for heating and blue for cooling.
