Installation
Overview
Installing the thermostat is a relatively simple process and typically takes from 10 to 30
minutes to complete. You should consider the current outdoor temperature. If unexpected
problems occur, you do not want to risk freezing or overheating, while you are sorting the
problem out.
You will need screwdrivers, a wire stripper/cutter, and a drill for installing the wall anchors to
complete the installation. A volt/ohm meter can be helpful for troubleshooting but is not
required.
Most conventional thermostats, probably including the one you are replacing, use a single
wall mounted enclosure. The BAYweb thermostat uses two modules: the Thermostat Keypad
and the Control Module. This design eliminates the use of batteries and potential need to pull
new wire out to the wall, and results in a more compact and elegant design.
The Thermostat Keypad is mounted on wall in place of
your existing thermostat.
If your existing thermostat is larger than the new one,
you can easily pull off the keypad later to touch up the
paint after you have completed the installation.
The control module mounts near or on your
furnace and/or air conditioner, and is spliced
into your existing thermostat wire.
The module can be powered directly from the
furnace or from an outlet ideally on the same
circuit as your furnace.
You will need an Internet connection for the
Control Module.
If it is not convenient to plug into your network
there, consider using an optional power-line
Ethernet adapter.

Your existing installation is should be
similar to this depiction.
Thermostat Cable
You have a single thermostat cable
going between your wall mounted
thermostat and the furnace.
The cable contains from 2 to 5 wires of
different colors.
Your BAYweb Thermostat installation is shown below. The Control Module is mounted near
the furnace or air conditioner and is wired into the existing thermostat cable. The control
module is powered from a standard outlet.

The specific installation steps to replace your existing thermostat with the new BAYweb
Thermostat are shown in the remainder of the installation instructions. If you are installing the
thermostat with new equipment, the process will be similar except for removal of the old
equipment.
!
CAUTION: Be sure to review all of the installation steps before starting your
installation.

1
Identify Wiring
The objective of this step is to identify how your thermostat wiring is connected to your
furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump. This will also determine what type of control
scheme your system uses.
A) Turn off all power to your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump.
!
CAUTION: Verify that all power has been turned off. Failure to turn power
off may result in personal injury, electric shock, and equipment damage.
B) Go to your existing thermostat and remove the cover or remove it from the wall as
needed so you can see the terminals where the wiring is attached.
C) Note what connections your system uses and verify that your thermostat is using the
correct terminals with the correct wire color as shown in the table below.
If your installation is using non standard wire colors, you will have to note what color is
being used for what terminal and match your wire colors to the appropriate terminal.

D) If you do not have a wire attached to terminal “C” or “X”, you will need to use the
included power supply to power the thermostat. The power supply plugs into a
standard 120VAC outlet and to a connector on the control module.
E) The following table shows what terminals are used by the different control methods.
Determine which control method your system is using by matching which terminals are
connected to your wiring.
Circle the number of the system type that you have. You will use this information when
configuring your thermostat in Step 5.
If you have a wire connected to terminal “E”, you have a heat pump with an emergency
heat function. If you do not also have a wire connected to terminal “W” you will need to
connect the wire connected to “E” to terminal “W”.

If you have any question on what system type you have, contact support
(support@bayweb.com) or contact your local HVAC service company.
* NOTE: The BAYweb Thermostat requires at least 4 wires in the thermostat cable
between the Thermostat keypad and the Control Module. If you have a heat or cool
only system that only has 2 wires, you will need to install new thermostat wire. It is less
desirable, but often possible to obtain satisfactory operation using 3 wires. Consult the
Frequently Asked Questions section at www.bayweb.com for more information.
** NOTE: Some heat pump installations may use a white wire on W2 instead of W1 for
auxiliary heat. If you have a white wire attached to terminal W2 of your thermostat it
should be connect to the W1 terminal of the BAYweb Thermostat.

Install Control Module
A) Find your thermostat cable where it goes into the furnace, air conditioner, or heat
pump. This is the same cable identified in Step 1 and should be the same color and
thickness as that cable.
!
CAUTION: There may be other cables of similar color connecting other
devices such as a humidifier. Be sure to use the cable that runs back to your
thermostat and not one that is connected to another device. Connecting the
Web Thermostat to the wrong cable can result in electric shock and/or
equipment damage.
B) Mount the Control Module using the following criteria:
◦ Select a location near the furnace where there is sufficient room to mount the
Control Module along where the thermostat cable runs. The thermostat cable will
need to reach both the “Thermostat” and “Furnace/AC” terminals of the Control
Module.
◦ If you will be using the included power supply (see Step 1D), select a location within
4 feet of a power outlet, ideally on the same circuit as the furnace/AC.
◦ Select a location where you can connect to the Internet. If wiring is not convenient,
we suggest using a power line Ethernet adapter that will allow you to make this
connection using your existing power wiring.
C) Prepare the thermostat cable:
With the furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump power OFF, cut the thermostat wire at a
point where both ends will be able to reach the Control Module mounting location.
Using a wire-stripping tool, strip approximately 2 inches of the outer jacket off both
ends of the thermostat cable, then strip approximately ¼ inch off the end of each of the
thermostat wires.
D) Connect the wiring going to the Thermostat Keypad:
Attach the wires in the cable coming from the thermostat to the terminals on the LEFT
side of the control module into the connector labeled "Thermostat". Be sure to match
the wire color and terminal designation as identified in Step 1. If you have more wires
than the four wires labeled on the connector (Red, White, Green, Yellow), bend them
back out of the way and tape to the cable. They will not be used.
Note that you need four wires between the Control Module and Thermostat Keypad
even if you have a heat or cool only system.
8
E) Connect the wiring going to the furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump:
Attach the wires in the cable coming from the furnace to the terminals on the RIGHT
side of the control module labeled "Furnace/AC". Be sure to match the wire color and
terminal designation as identified in Step 1.
NOTE: If your system uses separate Rh and Rc wires, be sure to remove the jumper
wire between the Rh and Rc terminals. If your system uses a single Red wire, make
sure the jumper wire between terminals Rh and Rc is installed.
!
CAUTION: It is very important to connect the thermostat cable to the correct
connectors on the Control Module. If you connect the control module
“Thermostat” connector to your furnace or air conditioner wiring, the
control module will be damaged.
F) Confirm that the terminal screws are tight, the wires will not pull out of the terminals,
and that there are not any shorts between terminals.
The Control Module is mounted near the
furnace where the thermostat cable is routed.
This location should be within 6 feet of a
power outlet.
You will connect the module to your network
using standard Ethernet cable, or using the
power line Ethernet adapters.
Orient the Control Module so the Furnace/AC
connector is on the side that goes to the
furnace, mounting it “upside down” if needed.
The Control Module installed and wired to
your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump.
Do not plug in the Control Module power or
Internet yet. This will be done in step 4.

Install Thermostat Keypad
A) Remove the wires from your existing thermostat, taking care that the wires do not fall
back into the wall.
B) Remove the existing thermostat and any associated mounting hardware.
C) Fill in any holes from the previous thermostat mounting and paint the wall if needed.
D) Hold the Thermostat Keypad in the desired position and mark the location of the top
mounting screw. Locate the bottom mounting screw 3 ½ inches below the top screw
location. Drill 3/16 inch holes and install the supplied wall anchors. Tap the anchors
with the screwdriver handle to insure that are flush or slightly indented into the wall.
E) Screw the supplied mounting screws into the wall anchors leaving about 1/16th inch
gap for the Thermostat Keypad to slide over.
F) Make sure the ends of each wire are stripped and ready to be attached to the new
Thermostat Keypad. If any wires break off then use your wire stripper to strip
approximately ¼ inch of insulation from the end of the wire.
G) Using the supplied wire nuts, attach the four colored wires coming from the Thermostat
Keypad (red, white, green, yellow) to the four matching colored wires from the cable in
the wall. If your installation uses non standard wire colors, use the table you completed
in step 1C to connect your wire colors to the standard color of the Thermostat Keypad.
H) If you have any spare wires not being used, cut off any bare sections and insure that
they will not short to anything in the Thermostat Keypad.
I) Push the thermostat cable into the wall to remove as much slack as possible. Fit the
any excess wiring into the space behind the Thermostat Keypad.
J) Attach the Thermostat Keypad to the wall by sliding the slot at the top and key opening
at the bottom over the anchor screws installed in step 3D above. The sideways key slot
will allow some side to side adjustment to facilitate vertical alignment.
K) Check the fit to the wall. The Thermostat Keypad should have a tight fit to the wall. If it
is too loose, screw the mounting screws in a bit further as needed to obtain a tight fit.

Wall mounting location with the existing
thermostat cable prepared to install the new
Thermostat Keypad.
If the ends of the existing wiring are worn or
broken. Cut off the ends and strip about ¼
inch of insulation from the end of each wire.
Now is a good time to touch up the paint if
needed.
Locate and install the wall anchors and
mounting screws as shown, and described
above.
Connect the Thermostat Keypad to your
thermostat wiring as shown.
Route the slack in the thermostat cable and
wiring back into the wall.
Keep the wire connectors (wire nuts) on the
outside of the wall. They will fit inside the
Thermostat Keypad when attached to the
wall.
Complete installation of the Thermostat
Keypad by sliding it over the anchor screws.
Be careful to not pinch or bunch up the wiring
behind the module.
Adjust the anchor screws as needed to obtain
a tight fit flush to the wall.

Connect to the Internet
The BAYweb Thermostat is factory configured for system type 3, conventional one
heat/one cool. This will also work for system types 1 and 2. If you have a multistage
furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump, you will need to connect the thermostat to the
Internet and configure it for the type of system that you have prior to use.
A) Connect the Control Module to the Internet. Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the
LAN port on the bottom of the Control Module and the other end into a port on a router
or switch on your home network.
B) If direct wiring is not convenient, use Power line Ethernet adapters. Plug one adapter
into a power plug near the control module, and the other adapter near your home
router. Then just plug the Ethernet cables into the adapters and the ports.
C) The BAYweb Thermostat does not require any configuration or programming of your
networking equipment. You do not need to change security settings. Just plug it in and
you are all set to go.
D) Plug in the control module. Do not power up your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump
yet. The Power LED on the control module should illuminate.
!
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electric shock, this product has a grounding
type plug that has a third (grounding) pin. This plug will only fit into a
grounding type power outlet. If the plug does not fit into the outlet, contact a
qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way.
E) In less than a minute the “Uplink” light should illuminate on the control module. If you
do not see “Uplink” light up within a couple of minutes, refer to the Troubleshooting
section of this manual.

Using the Web Portal
The real power of the BAYweb Thermostat is realized by using the BAYweb Portal to access
your thermostat. This portal can be accessed anytime from anywhere via web browser and
Internet enabled mobile phone. Unlimited use of the portal is included at no charge.
If you have not already done so, setup your personalized portal by going to the web site
www.bayweb.com, register a new account, login and add a device (your thermostat). You will
need the serial number and key code that are on the front of this manual.
15
Using Your Mobile Phone
Once you have setup your personalized web portal, you can also use most any mobile phone
that has web access to remotely access your thermostat and other web devices. To access
the mobile web portal, enter the following address in your mobile phone browser:
www.bayweb.com/mobile.
Occupancy Sensing
The BAYweb Thermostat can use various types of sensors (motion sensors being the most
common) which allow the thermostat to “know” when you are home (Occupied) or when you
are away (Not Occupied).
Occupancy sensors enable the Web Thermostat to operate as one of the most efficient
thermostat available today. Using occupancy sensors will save you the most amount of
money and simplify setting up your thermostat.
Using Occupancy Sensing allows you to only pay for heating or air conditioning to your
comfort level when you are there. Imagine running out to go shopping on a weekend and
being gone from your house for say 5 hours. Do you always turn your thermostat down when
you go shopping? Now your BAYweb Thermostat can do it for you.
Use of Occupancy Sensing simplifies setting up your thermostat’s schedule because all you
need to do is determine when you generally are asleep and when you generally wake up (if
you want your house heated before you wake). The remainder of the time you can tell the
thermostat to sense if you are there or not.
While “Sensing”, the thermostat will automatically set back the temperature to your “Away”
set point after a period of time of not sensing occupancy. Likewise, upon sensing occupancy,
it will switch to your “Home” set point.
Scheduling a “Sleep” activity disables Occupancy Sensing to prevent switching to the Home
set point if you get up in the middle of the night and happen to pass a sensor.
Implementing Occupancy Sensing
To enable and use occupancy sensing you need to install one or more occupancy sensors
and configure the thermostat to use them on the web portal.
The thermostat can use wireless (X10 wireless protocol) or wired occupancy sensors. Bay
sells a low cost wireless occupancy sensor that is ready to use with the BAYweb Thermostat.
Just put in a couple of batteries and mount it in a location that typically sees activity when you
are home. You can use as many sensors as needed enabling the thermostat to monitor
multiple locations in your home for occupancy.
Wired occupancy sensors can use either normally open or closed contacts. Motion sensors
from most alarm systems are compatible with the BAYweb thermostat.
16
Occupancy sensing with pets in the home is accomplished by masking off the lower part of
the sensing lens.
You should locate your sensors in high-traffic areas of your house so that they will be most
likely to sense when people are present. The sensors from Bay have a 10+ foot range and will
sense people as they pass in front of the sensor. We have found that locating them at about
chest height or higher works well.
Once you have installed your occupancy sensors login to the web portal to enable them. To
enable occupancy sensing select the “Schedule” page from the thermostat applet menu and
set the “Occupancy Inactivity Time”. We suggest using 1 hour for this interval initially, you can
adjust this value later if needed to suit your lifestyle.
If you are using sensors not supplied by Bay, you may need to configure the thermostat to
look for other wireless IDs or to monitor the wired input. This is done on the “Settings” page of
the thermostat applet.
After enabling occupancy sensing review your schedule and set your “Sensing”, “Sleep” , and
“Home” times as described above. Your thermostat will now automatically adapt your HVAC
operation to match your lifestyle.
Testing Occupancy Sensing
If you want to see if the sensors are working as expected, login to the web portal and select
“Sensor Log” from the thermostat applet menu.
The thermostat applet “Operation Log” will give a detailed view of occupancy sensing
operation.
Occupancy Sensing with Multiple Thermostats
If you are using multiple BAYweb thermostats in the same building, and wish to have each
thermostat sense occupancy (using wireless sensors) in separate areas, you will need to
configure the occupancy sensors with different X10 device IDs.
The default X10 ID of Bay supplied sensors is “A1”. Note that these sensors also use an ID
that is one more than what is configured (default “A2”) for other purposes, do not use the next
ID for occupancy sensing. For example, acceptable IDs would be A1, A3, A5...
Refer to the instructions provided with the sensor for detail on how to change the sensor's
X10 ID. Configure the thermostat to look for the alternate X10 IDs on the “Settings” page of
the thermostat applet.
17
Alerting
Alerting is a powerful feature that enables you, and others you designate, to be notified of the
following events:
•
Problems with your thermostat and HVAC system.
•
Excessive heating or cooling energy usage.
•
Intrusion.
•
Loss of Internet connectivity.
•
Other problems or alerts with anything else you choose to connect to the control
module (wired or wireless).
Alerting provides many of the features of a traditional alarm system without the monthly fee. If
you have an alarm system that is no longer in use, you can wire those sensors into the control
module to convert your old system to a self-monitored system.
When the BAYweb Thermostat senses an alert condition it immediately sends a message to
the BAYweb portal servers, which in turn emails the alert message to the list of recipients you
may specify. Typically you will enter an email address that will deliver the alert message to
your mobile phone via text messaging (SMS).
The time it takes for you to receive an alert varies mostly due to the variable delivery time of
text messaging. The BAYweb alert server will normally dispatch the alert email within 10
seconds of the event.
Implementing Alerting
There is a wide variety of additional sensors and devices that can be integrated into the
alerting system. Refer to the device instructions for detail on integrating those devices.
To enable alerting, login to the web portal, bring up the “Settings” page in the thermostat
applet, and set the “Alert email” to the addresses you want the notification to go to. Set “Alert
Interval” to something other than “Disabled”.
Depending on any other sensors or devices you have connected to the control module, you
may need to configure the thermostat to look for other X10 wireless IDs and wired inputs. This
is also done from the “Settings” page of the thermostat applet.
Testing Alerting
To verify that alerting is operating as expected, login to the web portal and review the
thermostat applet “Operation Log”, “Alert Log”, and “Sensor Log”.

The Thermostat Keypad module senses the current
temperature and provides an interface for manual control.
Normally the displayed number (68 in this case) indicates the
current temperature.
To change the set point, press the up or down arrows. The
display will switch to the current set point. Note that a decimal
point is displayed while showing the set point. The display will
automatically revert to the current temperature after a few
seconds if no keys are pressed.
The display will show “LO” to indicate locked if a key is
pressed when the keypad has been locked (using the web
portal).
HEAT
The indicator is illuminated when the thermostat is in heat mode. The key is used to select
heat mode or turn the furnace off.
COOL
The indicator is illuminated when the thermostat is in cool mode. The key is used to select
cool mode or turn the air conditioner off.
HOLD
The indicator is illuminated when the thermostat is in hold mode. The key is used to select or
cancel hold mode. When in hold mode, the current set point will be used regardless of what is
scheduled. Note that the web and mobile portals can still override this setting.
FAN
The indicator is illuminated when the fan is running manually. The key is used to manually
turn the fan ON, or set it in automatic.
Error Codes
The thermostat may display an error code to alert you of problems. When an error code is
displayed the temperature is replaced with “E#”, where the number represents an error
described below. To clear the error code, press any key on the keypad. Refer to the
Troubleshooting section for corrective action.

Control Module
Alert Inputs
There are three inputs that can be used to connect to a variety of wired sensors, such as a
sump pump monitor or alarm door contacts.
To use this feature, wire the dry contacts of a sensor or switch to the terminals of one of the
inputs. The two terminals labeled IN1 are for alert input 1, IN2 for alert input 2, and IN3 for
alert input 3.
The Settings page on the Web Portal is used to assign the inputs to a zone, and configure
normally open or normally closed contacts.
!
CAUTION: Do not connect an Alert input to any external voltage source. Dry
contacts only. Failure to do so may cause equipment damage.
20
Thermostat Connector
This connector is used to connect the Thermostat Keypad module to the Control Module. This
is a proprietary interface and can only be used with the specified modules. The Red and
White terminals supply power (3.3 VDC), the Green and Yellow terminals utilize a proprietary
communications protocol.
Furnace/AC Connector
This connector is wired to your furnace and/or air conditioner, or heat pump, and provides
control of your equipment. Refer to the Thermostat Connections section of this manual for
detail of terminal usage.
LAN Port
The LAN port is a standard Ethernet interface (IEEE 802.3 compatible with 10/100/1000
Base-T networks). This port operates at 10 Mbps (10Base-T). There are 2 LED activity
indicators built into the the connector. The green LED will be illuminated whenever there is a
physical link to your network (plugged in). The amber LED is illuminated when there is activity
on the port.
Power Supply
The power supply connector is used to power the BAYweb Thermostat if your furnace/AC
does not provide the common power wire (“C” or “X” terminal). See installation Step 1D.
Ideally the power supply should be plugged into the same circuit that powers the furnace/AC.
Status Indicators

Heat 1
For conventional systems, this LED indicates when the thermostat is
signaling the furnace to produce stage one heat. For heat pump systems,
this LED indicates when the thermostat is activating auxiliary heat.
Heat 2
For conventional multistage systems, this LED indicates when the thermostat
is signaling the furnace to produce stage two heat. For conventional single
stage and heat pump systems, this LED indicates when thermostat is
signaling for the zone damper to open.
Compressor 1 For conventional systems, this LED indicates when the thermostat is
signaling the air conditioner to operate stage one cool. For heat pump
systems, this LED indicates when the thermostat is signaling the heat pump
to run the stage one compressor.
Compressor 2 For conventional systems, this LED indicates when the thermostat is
signaling the furnace to produce stage two cool. For heat pump systems, this
LED indicates when the thermostat is signaling the heat pump to run both

Indicator
Description
Fan
Indicates when the thermostat is signaling the furnace, air conditioner, or
heat pump to turn on the fan.
Reverse
Indicates that the thermostat is signaling the heat pump to activate the
reversing valve. The “B” terminal is normally closed, it supplies power when
the Rev LED is off. The “O” terminal is normally open, it supplies power when
the Rev LED is illuminated.
The use of the “O” and “B” terminals may vary by manufacturer of the heat
pump. Typically, the “O” terminal supplies power to signal for cooling, and the
“B” terminal supplies power to signal for heat. If your system appears to be
operating opposite of what it should, move the reversing valve wire to the
other terminal.
