PROGRAMMING
Understanding program schedules
The daily schedule is split into four sections:
WAKE: temperature you would prefer to wake up to.
LEAVE: temperature when you are away from the house.
RETURN: temperature you would prefer to return home to.
SLEEP: temperature you would prefer while sleeping.
The times shown in the table below are the defaults. The start time and temperature of each section can be changed
to fit your schedule. (See Changing Program Schedules section on pages 12-13.)
This thermostat is pre-set to use the following program settings (see table below). We recommend these settings,
since they can reduce your heating/cooling expenses. The fan program is pre-set to AUTO for all events.

Progressive recovery
The Progressive Recovery feature allows the thermostat to activate the heating and cooling equipment prior to an
event in order to reach the desired temperature at the start of the next scheduled event.
Example: If the WAKE time is 6 am, and the temperature is 70°, the heat will come on before 6 am, so the
temperature is 70° by the time you wake at 6 am.
