IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
!
WARNING:
■ Always turn off power at the main power source by unscrewing fuse or switching circuit
breaker to the off position before installing, removing, or cleaning this thermostat.
■ Read all of the information in this manual before programming this thermostat.
■ This is a 24V AC low-voltage thermostat. Do not install on voltages higher than 30V AC.
■ All wiring must conform to local and national building and electrical codes and ordinances.
■ Do not short (jumper) across terminals on the gas valve or at the system control to test instal-
lation. This will damage the thermostat and void the warranty.
■ This thermostat is equipped with automatic compressor protection to prevent potential dam-
age due to short cycling or extended power outages. The short cycle protection provides a 5minute delay between heating or cooling cycles to prevent the compressor from being damaged.
■ Do not switch system to cool if the temperature is below 50°F (10°C). This can damage the
cooling system and may cause personal injury.
■ Use this thermostat only as described in this manual.

What is an event?
An event is a programming period. This could be the period in the morning when you are preparing for work or school. It could be the
period when no one is at home. It could be the period when the household is asleep at night.
The time for an event is selected based on when you want the event to occur. For example, if you wake up at 6:30 AM, set the first
event for 6:30 AM. The thermostat will automatically make sure that your home is at the desire temperature selected for that event by
the time you wake.
This thermostat can be selected for 2, 4, or 6 events.
Two events should be selected if someone is home all day thereby requiring a constant temperature during the day and a different
temperature at night.
Four events are the most common for working households. Event 1 (WAKE) is the morning period. Event 2 (DAY) is when everybody
has left for school or work. Event 3 (EVE) is the return period, coming home from school or work. Event 4 (NIGHT) is the night period
when everybody is asleep.
Six events can be used especially when there is activity during the day. Event 1 (WAKE) is the morning period. Event 2 (MORN) is
when everybody has left for school or work. Event 3 (NOON) is the lunch period, when the kids may be home for a break.
Event 4 (DAY) is the afternoon period when the house is empty. Event 5 (EVE) is the return period, coming home from school or
work. Event 6 (NIGHT) is the night period when everybody is asleep.
How do I know what program is right for me?
The thermostat is set up with the US EPA ENERGYSTAR® recommended times and temperatures for optimal energy savings. You can
change these to suit your lifestyle.
The best rule is to examine your schedule and set the times and temperatures that best fit. This thermostat is so versatile, you can
easily temporarily change temperatures or programs at a whim.

SECURITY CODE
In this screen you enter a four-digit code. Use the UP or DOWN button to change the first value,
press OK. The second digit will be highlighted. Repeat for all four values. And don’t forget your

you’ve programmed into the unit.
When would I need to change the USER settings?
About the only features you may need to change are the FILTER INTERVAL (in case you get a new type of high efficiency filter), the temperature differentials (if you desire additional comfort), and the security settings. All the other settings probably will not need to be changed.

When would I need to change the INSTALLER settings?
NEVER! The INSTALLER SETTINGS are selected based on the type of equipment you have in your home. This feature should be set
only by a certified HVAC technician. Changing these settings could result in higher energy costs and may even damage your equipment. There is a security lock on this feature to prevent tampering. USE IT!
How does Energy Efficient Recovery™ (EER™) work?
Energy Efficient Recovery™ is an energy saving feature. During a set back period (or set up in cooling), it allows the thermostat to
look up to two hours ahead to determine when to turn on the heating (cooling) system. During this time period, the second stage is
locked out to allow the first (and most efficient stage) to bring your home to the desired temperature.
How does my remote indoor sensor work?
The remote indoor sensor (part # 9020i) can be used to improve the comfort of your home. When used in conjunction with the local
sensor on the thermostat, the two sensors average the sensed temperature and control to that average temperature.
You also can use the remote sensor in a stand-alone situation when you want to control the temperature in a remote room but have
the thermostat in a secure location.
When would I need a remote indoor sensor?
Large rooms are ideal for remote sensors. Installing a remote sensor across from the thermostat will provide constant comfort throughout the living space.
How does my remote outdoor sensor work?
The remote outdoor sensor (part # 9025i) can be used to aid in the comfort of your home or simply as a sensing device to inquire
about outdoor conditions. In most applications, the thermostat will have a display of the temperature sensed by the remote outdoor
sensor. With your heat pump system, the remote outdoor sensor can help determine when to turn on the second stage of heating for
optimal comfort.
Where should I install a remote outdoor sensor?
The remote outdoor sensor should be installed on the northern wall of your home, away from direct sunlight or other heat sources that
may affect its sensitivity.

Who should I call for additional help?
For additional troubleshooting information, visit our web site at www.aboutinsight.com. To talk with a service representative, give us a
call at 800-445-8299.
What should I do if my power goes out?
Make sure your family is safe and don’t worry about the thermostat. Your insight™ thermostat automatically retains the time of day for
approximately two hours in the event of a power outage. All other programmed parameters are stored permanently in memory. So, if
your power is out for more than two hours, simply reset the clock. See page 5.
How do I reset the thermostat program to factory conditions?
To reset the thermostat to factory conditions, press the UP button and the LEFT button at the same time. Hold for 3 seconds. The time
of day will display 12:00 indicating a reset has occurred.
NOTE:
This will erase all programming and return the thermostat to the factory conditions including the installer settings. Use this
only as a last resort.
How do I know if the heating or cooling is on?
The display of the thermostat will indicate the operating mode, HEAT or COOL. When the temperature in your home decreases or
increases, the HEATING or COOLING cycle will come on based on the displayed mode. When the HVAC system is ON, LEDs along
the bottom crease will turn on.
My energy bills are too high. Is there anything I can do?
While we can’t do anything about the high cost of energy, we can try to use less energy thereby lowering our heating and cooling costs.
Generally, the best way to do this is to use the EPA ENERGYSTAR® recommended setpoints for heating and cooling.

Another way to contain costs is to cycle the heat pump or air conditioner with moderation. The thermostat controls the cycle rate
based on temperature differentials. By maintaining a reasonable differential setpoint, 1°F for 1st stage and 2°F for 2nd stage,
your furnace will cycle with moderation.
Finally, using the remote outdoor sensor coupled with the balance point feature (see INSTALLER SETTINGS, page 21) will
allow your furnace to cycle to the most efficient stage for your heating or cooling needs.
