- Standard non-communicating thermostats, use low voltage to control equipment in a on/off manner. They may potentially have Wi-Fi® capabilities; however, these thermostats are only capable of one-way communication between the equipment and the thermostat. Standard thermostats can only receive alerts on the wall control display that are pre-programmed by your installer. These thermostats do not display fault codes on the screen. Examples of non-communicating thermostats: Nest®, Honeywell® and ecobee.
- Communicating controls like the Evolution™ Connex™ Control have Wi-Fi capability and use two-way (back and forth) communication with the equipment. This allows the wall control to report data from the equipment. These thermostats can receive fault codes and malfunction alerts directly on the wall control display.
- Alert codes appear when your equipment/thermostat is trying to signal to you there may be an issue. Depending on the type of alert code that appears, it may or may not be anything that requires immediate attention. This pertains to the Evolution™ Connex™ Control.
- For safety reason, you must contact your dealer to get further details about specifics on alert codes. There are three types of alert codes that will help you identify the overall severity:
- Conditions: Conditions are typically not an issue, but instead are usually meant to make you aware of the status of the thermostat or equipment, such as the thermostat alerting you there is a software upgrade available.
- Faults: Faults are issues that need to be addressed with a dealer, though the system will typically continue to run, if left unattended it may lead to a malfunction and cause system damages.
- Malfunctions: Malfunctions refer to some type of equipment/component shut down and/or lockout in order to prevent damage from occurring to the system. These should be addressed with a dealer as soon as possible, as malfunctions are a sign there is an urgent issue with the equipment
