    Notes:
    • When the thermostat wizard runs for the first time, it asks you to set the time schedule for the heat and cool settings. If more than one thermostat is connected to the Cox Homelife system, the wizard applies that same schedule across all thermostats. However, different thermostats can have their own individual schedule. To adjust the schedule on other thermostats, you have to edit the rule of the desired thermostat after the wizard has completed.
    • Review your rules to make sure that they do not conflict with your thermostat schedule.
    • Rules cannot switch between cooling and heating. There is not currently an auto changeover feature. You can set cool or heat set points in the thermostat scheduler, but you have to manually choose heat or cool.

Editing Thermostat Settings

  1. To edit a rule, select Rules > Rules on the toolbar.

    Rules Dropdown

  2. Click the modify Pencil to the right of the Thermostat Schedule description.

    Rules Setup
