What are the requirements for smart thermostats as it relates to an HVAC system?

Most of the Remotely users will implement a Honeywell Z-Wave Smart Thermostat which is compatible with most modern HVAC systems.  Because there are various HVAC systems deployed in communities across the country, we would recommend the customer verifies that their HVAC system is compatible with a smart thermostat by reviewing the following list:

Compatible Systems

  • Heating: one, two and three stages (W1, W2, W3)
  • Cooling: one and two stages (Y1, Y2)
  • Heat pump: with auxiliary and emergency heat (O/B, AUX, E)

The Honeywell Thermostat is designed to work even if your home doesn’t have a common “C” wire, but installing a new C wire may be required in most cases.

Note - Please if you have compatibility questions, please ask a Remotely representative to verify your system will function with the selected thermostat.
