I have a Honeywell Z-Wave Thermostat (YTH8320ZW1007/U). I’m able to control it via my alarm app Total Connect 2.0. I believe my Honeywell Tuxedo alarm control panel is the one handling the z wave communication.
I’m trying to add it to my SmartThings app. I do all of the steps listed below from the instructions, but the device is never found. I have 20+ GE z wave light switches connected, some of which are several feet further away from the hub.
Could the hub distance be an issue or would the z wave light switches be repeating the thermostat signal back to the hub?
Any suggestions on how to get the thermostat connected to SmartThings? I have a feeling SmartThings will have more features than I have with Total Connect.
From the Dashboard, tap Add device
Android: Tap Add Device Manually
Tap Honeywell Z-Wave Thermostat
If you have more than one SmartThings Hub connected, select the Location you would like to add the device to, then tap Done
While the Hub searches:
Press the System button on the left side of the thermostat’s display
Press and hold the blank center button until the display changes
The first set of numbers/arrows is the “Function” section - Scroll until you find RF10
The second set of numbers/arrows is the “Setting” section - Select 1
Press Done in the lower left corner to save and exit
When the device is discovered, a message will appear that the device was successfully connected to your SmartThings Hub
Tap Edit to rename the device
When finished, tap Done
Tap Done again to confirm
