INSTALLING AND REMOVING NODES
A T9000 thermostat and Remote Control Node will not operate as
a system until they are linked together through the installation
process. The linking process binds one or more control nodes to a
thermostat so that they will communicate with each other as a
control system.
Up to eight nodes can be linked to a single
thermostat. Until linked, a control node will not operate. Once
linked, a control node will only respond to its specific thermostat.
The thermostat and RCN that have been linked will not interfere
with or be affected by any other thermostat or RCN in adjacent
and functions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
“Where should I locate my thermostat?”
For best results, the thermostat should be located approximately
five feet above the floor on an inside wall in an area with good air
circulation. Avoid drafts from air ducts and windows and heat from
sun light, lighting fixtures, appliances, fireplaces, etc.
“What does the antenna symbol on the display mean?”
“Why would I install multiple nodes as the same number?”
If all nodes are installed as the same number and the thermostat
hears from at least one, it will consider the communication good.
A hotel meeting room with multiple Packaged Terminal Air
Conditioner (PTAC) units is an example of when you may want to
install multiple control nodes to a single thermostat using the same
node number. A meeting room typically should be treated as a
single temperature zone; thereby ideally it should be controlled by
