Set Up Reminder and Alerts

Set Up Reminders and Alerts

Your Smart Si thermostat can be programmed to remind you of required filter changes and regular maintenance.

If you are not sure about what equipment you have installed or whether you need to replace rather than clean your filters, please contact your heating and cooling contractor, or consult your original equipment manuals for the recommended maintenance procedures.

HVAC Service: The HVAC Service (Maintenance) alert is displayed on the screen when regularly scheduled maintenance is required. It will also show your contractor’s contact information (if programmed by the contractor). Select this item to turn the reminder on or off, show the date of the last service, and select a reminder interval.

To set up Reminders: From the Home screen, press MENU. Select Reminders and Alerts. Adjust each option to  your personal preferences.

Furnace Filter: Sets the reminder period for cleaning or replacing the furnace air filter. Select this item to turn the reminder on or off and set the reminder interval in run-time hours or calendar months. You can also check the date of the last filter change.

UV Lamp: Sets the reminder period for cleaning or replacing the UV lamp. Select this item to turn the reminder on or off and to set the reminder in calendar months. You can also check the date of the last lamp change.

Configure Alerts

The Smart Si thermostat can generate alerts when the temperature in the home reaches a pre-programmed temperature. This protects your home from damage due to freezing or excessive heat. If this alert has been set up, you will see the alert on the Smart Si thermostat’s screen. If you’ve configured your personal Web Portal, you will also receive an email alert. 

To set up Alerts: From the Home screen, press MENU. Select Reminders and Alerts. Adjust each option to  your personal preferences.

Low Temp Alert: Select this item to set the temperature at which the Smart Si thermostat will generate a Low Temperature alert. The range can be adjusted to:

  • Off – no alert will be generated.
  • Set temperature range of 35 to 68 °F (1.5 to 20 °C).

 High Temp Alert: Select this item to set the temperature at which the Smart Si thermostat will generate a High Temperature alert. The range can be adjusted to:

  • Off – no alert will be generated.
  • Set temperature range of 60 to 104 °F (15.5 to 40°C).

 

Aux Heat Runtime Alert (optional): If you have a heat pump with auxiliary heat configuration, you can program the Smart Si thermostat to generate an alert if the auxiliary heat runs for more than this programmed amount of time during a 24-hour period.

Aux Outdoor Temp Alert (optional): If you have a heat pump with auxiliary heat configuration, you can also program the Smart Si thermostat to generate an alert if the auxiliary heat is called for when the outdoor temperature exceeds this programmed set point. (This feature requires an Internet connection to function properly.)

Display Alerts on Thermostat: Select No if you do not want any of the alerts to be displayed on the screen. Alerts will continue to be displayed on the Web Portal and sent via email.

Enable Heating/Cooling Alerts: Select No if you do not want the Smart Si thermostat to generate an alert if a system is not responding to a call for heat or cool. If disabled, these alerts will not be shown on the Smart Si thermostat or Web Portal and no emails will be sent.
