Power Outage
If a power outage occurs, the thermostat will stop working but all configuration is saved.
Outdoor Temperature ( )
When connected to a Z-Wave network, the thermostat may display the outdoor temperature
provided by an external sensor.
When available, the outdoor temperature is displayed instead of the set point, providing that the
outdoor temperature display setting is set to (On).
If no temperature is received within a 4 hours timeframe, the outdoor temperature will disappear
and the set point will be displayed.
In order to display the outdoor temperature, an external sensor needs to be part of the Z-Wave
network. It may be a physical sensor or a weather station app.
Refer to your Z-Wave hub controller instructions manual to find how to associate both devices. On
some Z-Wave hub controllers, an app may be used to provide the outdoor temperature.
