Creating Your Weekly Schedule

Creating Your Weekly Schedule

Your heating and cooling needs change depending on the time of day and day of the week. For example, if there’s no one in the house during the workday you might want to let the temperature go up in the summer, to reduce energy used by the air conditioning system, and down in the winter, to reduce heating energy.

By default, the Smart Si thermostat includes four configurable periods:

  • Awake The start time of this period typically represents when you get up in the morning.
  • Work This represents when you leave to go to work.
  • Home This represents when you get home from work in the evening.
  • Sleep This represents is when you go to bed at night.

To view your weekly schedule: From the Home screen, press MENU. Select Weekly Schedule. Your weekly schedule is shown on the screen.

We call it a Smart Si thermostat because it learns how your home and heating and cooling equipment perform. Intelligent algorithms combine weather data, your HVAC equipment run times and occupancy schedules to optimize performance and maximize energy savings. This means you can be comfortable when you are home and save money when you are not. If your schedule changes, you can quickly and easily update the Smart Si thermostat settings on the device itself or online through your Web Portal.

 

Using the Weekly Schedule Editor

The Weekly Schedule editor lets you to set specific times, temperatures and furnace fan settings for each day of the week. If your system is enabled for auto change-over mode, the heat and cool set temperatures will automatically be adjusted to ensure a minimum difference.

Adding New Periods: To accommodate for your varying schedule you can add additional program periods in your week.

If your house is in-use during this period, select Yes; otherwise select No. Select Enable. Select the new time and press OK. The new period is added.
