The Honeywell Home T6 Pro Z-Wave Smart Thermostat is now available in the Ring app. You can adjust the temperature, change from heat to cool, and turn on and off the fan all from the Ring app, allowing you to save on energy costs. 

Please note that if you want to program your thermostat, you’ll need to use the thermostat itself, not the Ring app.

Need help with your thermostat? Try these steps and resources: 

If your device is not connecting to the Ring Alarm

  • Check the top right corner of the thermostat’s screen. If a network symbol is present, the device is already connected to your Ring app.
  • Check the Ring app to see if it’s already connected.
  • If it is not connected, ensure that your Ring Alarm is within 3 ft of the Thermostat, then follow the steps below to remove the thermostat and try adding it again within 3ft of the thermostat.

Removing your Honeywell Home T6 Pro Z-Wave Smart Thermostat 

  • Start from the main screen of the Honeywell Home T6 Pro Smart Z-Wave Thermostat. Press the Menu button at the bottom of the screen. Then scroll right or left until you find the Z-Wave Setup option.
  • Press the select button to continue. Then find the option that asks the user to "put the controller into its pairing mode". Press the Select button to continue. This will tell the T6 to begin communicating with Z-Wave controllers.
  • Open the Ring app, go to the Honeywell Home T6 Pro Z-Wave Smart Thermostat, tap Settings, tap Remove, then tap Remove Device. This will remove the thermostat from your Ring app. 

What do I do if the screen is blank?

Honeywell recommends that you try the following steps:

  • Check that the circuit break is on. Reset the circuit breaker if necessary.
  • Make sure that the power switch at your heating and cooling system is on.
  • Make sure the furnace door is closed securely.
  • If this thermostat will be used as a battery-powered thermostat only, check that there are fresh batteries.

What do I do if the screen is hard to read?

Honeywell recommends that you change the screen brightness on the thermostat menu. The maximum brightness is 5. These settings are only available if the thermostat is connected to AC power. 

What do I do if the heating or cooling system does not respond?

  • Touch Mode to set the system to Heat. Make sure the temperature is set higher than the indoor temperature.
  • Touch Mode to set the system to Cool. Make sure the temperature is set lower than the indoor temperature.
  • Check circuit breaker and reset if necessary.
  • Make sure the power switch at the heating & cooling system is on.
  • Make sure the furnace door is closed securely.

What do I do if the temperature settings don’t change? 

Your installer may have set a range stop setting for heat or cooling. Contact your installer to verify the range stop settings on the thermostat. The default range stops settings are:

  • Heat: 40 °F to 90 °F (4.5 °C to 32.0 °C)
  • Cool: 50 °F to 99 °F (10.0 °C to 37.0 °C)

What do I do if “Cool on” or “Heat on” are flashing?

It’s possible that the compressor protection feature is engaged. Wait 5 minutes for the system to restart safely, without damage to the compressor. See page 8 for more information.
