Removing your old thermostat

  1. Turn the power OFF. To protect yourself and your equipment, Turn off the power at the breaker box or switch that controls your heating/cooling system.
  2. Check that your system is off. Change the temperature on your old thermostat. If you don’t hear the system turn on within 5 minutes, the power is off.
    Note: If you have a digital thermostat that has a blank display, skip this step.
  3. Remove the old thermostat’s faceplate. On most thermostats, you can take off the faceplate by grasping and gently pulling. Some thermostats may have screws, buttons, or clasps. Do not remove any wires from your thermostat at this time!
  4. Make sure there are no 120/240V wires. Do you have thick black wires with wire nuts? Is your thermostat 120V or higher? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you have a line voltage system and the thermostat will not work. If you are unsure visit: honeywellhome.com/support
  5. Take a picture of how your wiring looks right now. Be sure to include the letters next to the terminals where the wires are inserted. This will be a helpful reference when wiring your thermostat. Tip: If the color of your wires has faded or if 2 terminals have the same wire color, use the wire labels provided in the package to label each wire.
  6. Disconnect the wires and remove the old wall plate. Use a screwdriver to release wires from terminals. Then, use a wire label to identify each wire as it’s disconnected. The letter on the wire label should match the letter on the terminal. Tip: To prevent wires from falling back into the wall, wrap the wires around a pencil.

System operation settings

  1. Press the Mode button to cycle to the next available System mode.
  2. Cycle through the modes until the required System mode is displayed and leave it to activate.

NOTE: Available System modes vary by model and system settings.

System modes:

  • Auto: The thermostat selects heating or cooling as needed.
  • Heat: The thermostat controls only the heating system.
  • Cool: The thermostat controls only the cooling system.
  • Em Heat (only for heat pumps with auxiliary heat): The thermostat controls Auxiliary Heat. A compressor is not used.
  • Off The heating and cooling system is off. The fan will still operate if a fan is set to On or Circulate.

Program Schedule

Honeywell RTH8500 Wifi Thermostat User Manual fig 5

You can program four time periods each day, with different settings for weekdays and weekends. We recommend the pre-set settings (shown in the table below) since they can reduce your heating/cooling expenses. Wake – Set the time you wake up and the temperature you want during the morning, until you leave for the day.

Away – Set to the time you leave home and the temperature you want while you are away (usually an energy-saving level). Home – Set to the time you return home and the temperature you want during the evening, until bedtime. Sleep – Set to the time you go to bed and the temperature you want overnight (usually an energy-saving level).

Wiring—conventional systems

Alternate wiring (conventional systems)
If labels do not match terminals, connect wires as shown below (see notes, below). NOTES:

  1. If you must connect both R and Rc wires, set the R Slider Tab to the down position (2 wires).
  2. If your old thermostat had both R and RH wires, set the R Slider Tab to the down position (2 wires). Then connect the R wire to the Rc terminal, and the RH wire to the R terminal.
  3. If your old thermostat had only 1 C or C1 wire, connect it to the C terminal. If your old thermostat had 2 C or C1 wires, wrap each separately with electrical tape and do not connect them.

Honeywell RTH8500 Wifi Thermostat User Manual fig 6

Connect wires: heat pump 

Honeywell RTH8500 Wifi Thermostat User Manual fig 7

  1. Match each labeled wire with the same letter on the new thermostat.
  2. Insert the wires into the matching terminal. NOTE: If you have difficulty inserting wires, you may have to press the terminal push button next to the corresponding terminal. Labels don’t match? If labels do not match the letters on the thermostat, see “Alternate wiring (for heat pumps only)” below.

Alternate wiring (for heat pumps only)
NOTES:

  1. Keep R Slider Tab in the up position (1 wire).
  2. If your old thermostat had both V and VR wires, stop now and contact a qualified contractor for help.
  3. If your old thermostat had separate O and B wires, attach the B wire to the C terminal. If another wire is attached to the C terminal, stop now and contact a qualified contractor for help.
  4. If your old thermostat had Y1, W1, and W2 wires, stop now and contact a qualified contractor for help.
  5. This model doesn’t support the heat pump fault alert (L/A terminal). If this is desired, please contact a contractor for a replacement model.

Smart Response® Technology

This feature allows the thermostat to “learn” how long the furnace and air conditioner take to reach programmed temperature settings, so the temperature is reached at the time you set. For example: Set the Wake time to 6 am, and the temperature to 70°. The heat will come on before 6 am, so the temperature is 70° by the time you wake at 6. The message “Recovery” is displayed when the system is activated before a scheduled time period.

Battery replacement

Batteries are required to provide power when a common wire is not used. Batteries are recommended to provide backup power if the common wire is used. Install fresh batteries immediately when the low battery icon appears. The icon appears about two months before the batteries are depleted. Even if the low battery icon does not appear, you should replace batteries once a year, or before leaving home for more than a month. If batteries are inserted within two minutes, the time and day will not have to be reset. All other settings are permanently stored in memory and do not require battery power. NOTE: When replacing batteries, alkaline batteries are recommended.
