How can a new owner add the thermostat to the Wyse app, without being forced to rip off the faceplate to identify the wiring? The app insists on running through the “Preparation” and installation of the thermostat.
It’s already installed! And has been for 2 years!
There’s no option to skip installation and wiring identification.
Can you imagine a technophobe trying to use this “smart” device?
I think you would need to delete the device from your account . And the new home owner would have to create their own account , and add the device to their account . In order to do that they would need to be right besides it to connect via Bluetooth .
And for the part about the wiring , yes they would need to just remove the device from the back panel to see what wires it’s using so when they are going through the set up they can select the wires that are their .
I was under the impression there was a reset function on the thermostat menus itself. Then they’d just need to add it to their account. That is, unless the original owner disabled access from the thermostat itself.
I misread this initially. You can safely pull the thermostat from its wiring housing to identify the wiring. You don’t need to unscrew or disassemble or trace anything. This is the same for all thermostats dumb and smart.
All they need to do is pull, write down which wires are used, plug back in, input values, continue setup.
It’s a “smart” device with relatively nascent technology serving a critical home function. It doesn’t sound like too much to ask for a new homeowner to go through a one time setup like that in order to ensure things work as expected.
