I bought this thermostat because the temperature on the top landing of my stairs where the original thermostat was located was totally different than in our master bedroom and kids' room. With this thermostat system, the temperature is based on wherever I put the wireless unit. We keep it unmounted on the nightstand. Here are some clarifications of things I could not find elsewhere or took a long time to find out.
1. A common wire is needed. This is the wire that provides electricity to the thermostat. Not all thermostats need this wire nor are all HVAC systems wired with one. Some basic units do not have a common wire. An easy way to figure out if you have one is to pop off the face of your current thermostat and see if there is anything connected to the terminal marked with a "C". If not, you do not have a common wire or at least it is not connected. If you have some spare wires, you can easily connect the other end to the C terminal on your furnace. Without...
We had a wired thermostat in the hallway of the bedroom wing of our home. My wife was wanting the thermostat moved from the hallway to the master bedroom. I thought a wireless thermostat would allow that move and also allow for the thermostat to be moved again - if that became necessary. My original idea was to replace the wired thermostat in the hallway with the Equipment Interface Module (EIM). This would be an easy swap-out and - since the wiring was already in place - would minimize the time needed for the job. It should be noted that the thermostat wire I had in my wall had all the wires needed to hook up everything in this kit - including the return air sensor wiring. That may not be the case for others. When I pulled the EIM out of the box I realized that mounting it in the hallway wasn't an option. This thing is pretty big - around 8 inches square and about an inch deep. Being grey, red & large, it didn't exactly blend into the wall. I didn't need my spouse...
Installation and programming was very simple. Only negative was that the thermostat and controller won't reconnect after power cycle. You have to manually push the connect button. There is a duct sensor for this issue.
