- General Guidelines:
- Panels - Features in the Control Center are grouped into panels. There are panels to see current conditions, apply an override, change modes and many more. You can visit MY PROFILE -> Panels in the main menu to customize which panels will be displayed on your Home Screen. You can also view most panels under SETTINGS in the main menu. Clicking the 'x' in the upper right hand corner will close that panel.
- Current Working Device - You can add multiple thermostats to your account and manage them all from this Control Center. The gray bar directly below the menu indicates which thermostat you are currently viewing and working with. You can change your working device by either clicking the 'switch' icon or selecting Switch under DEVICES in the Main Menu. Select View All under DEVICES to see and manage all devices registered to your account.
- Input Field Colors - Different colors are used to indicate the possible states of input fields.
- Charcoal - This is the default or normal state. Changes will return to this color after they have been sent to and confirmed from your thermostat.
- Orange - Any change that has not yet been submitted. This color implies that further action is required before this setting will be sent to your thermostat. If left unsubmitted, any orange changes will 'time-out' after approximately two minutes.
- Blue - A pending change that has been submitted and is transmitting to your thermostat. Depending on your setup and network, these changes can take up to several minutes to take effect.
- Tips - Additional information or tips are available for select panels. Visit MY PROFILE -> Edit and uncheck the box marked 'Show Tips' to turn them off.

Comfort Window (Panel)
The ComfortWindow is a graph showing your personal area of comfort. Moving up on the vertical axis represents an increase in Temperature while moving right on the horizontal axis represents an increase in Relative Humidity. The dot indicates the current conditions of your home relative to your ComfortWindow. The dot will be displayed as green if inside the ComfortWindow and red when it falls outside.
- Max Temp: - The upper limit of the ComfortWindow temperature range. This is a 'feels like' (humidity compensated) value. This setting must be at least 3 degrees greater than the Min. Temp Setpoint.
- Min Temp: - The lower limit of the ComfortWindow temperature range. This is a 'feels like' (humidity compensated) value. This setting must be at least 3 degrees less than the Max. Temp Setpoint.
- Max RH: - The upper limit of the ComfortWindow Relative Humidity range. We recommend setting this value between 45 and 55%. Maintaining moistures levels above 55% may the growth of mold. This setting must be at least 20 percentage points higher than the Min RH Setpoint.
- Mix RH: - The lower limit of the ComfortWindow Relative Humidity range. We recommend setting this value between 15 and 25%. This setting must be at least 20 percentage points less than the Max RH Setpoint.
Note: Click the gear in the lower left hand corner of the Comfort Window Panel to further customize it.
Vacation Mode is a way to permanently set the settings on your thermostat while you are away for extended periods. Vacation settings take priority over Overrides, Program Entries and ComfortWindow settings.

- Heating Setpoint: - The setpoint used for heating while the thermostat is in Vacation Mode. This setting must be at least 3 degrees less than the Cooling Setpoint.
Program Schedule (Panel)
The Program Schedule gives a quick glance of all Program Entries. A Program Entry is a block of time on one or more days with a high and low setpoint which will be used instead of the ComfortWindow settings. The ComfortWindow settings will apply during times without a Program Entry. You can enter up to 15 different Program Entries in your schedule.
- Add an Entry: - Click the 'Add Entry' button at the bottom of the Panel to add a new Program Entry.

The Icon Toolbar provides a few easy buttons to quickly change settings on your thermostat.
Click the One Touch ComfortWindow button to apply a three hour override with your ComfortWindow high and low values. Using the One Touch ComfortWindow button will automatically exit Vacation Mode and modify any existing Override (if needed).
If your browser or mobile devices does not support auto update, use the refresh icon to reload the current page and update any values that may have changed.
Click the Party button when you are expecting a larger group of people in your house. ComfortWindow will apply a 3 hour override adjusting your settings in anticipation of the group. Using the Party button will automatically exit Vacation Mode and modify any existing Override (if needed).
