    3 years ago it was cutting edge technology. But as with anything electronic, after 6 months to a year. It isn't cutting edge anymore.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    I got an email from Nexia or schlagelink since I originally had it connected.

    That's nice. Hmm. Don't you think that Trane should be doing this?

    No. Ingersol Rand owns both Trane and Nexia. Nexia is the home automation and security division and you have to go through them for the remote access setup on that thermostat

    You would get a similar response from virtually any HVAC equipment manufacturer you called directly.
    In most cases, even we as contractors don't get direct access to support from the manufacturer, we have to go through the equipment distributor.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I have a Trane comfort link II class this morning. This is what most all dealers have to do is go to this classes and stay up to date with this products and others that Trane offers!

    This is why it's best to call a pro out. The person you are talking to through Trane has very little knowledge of the product compaired to Trane field service tech. That is who is doing the training this morning.
