    How to disable the hold button on Honeywell thermostat

    I would like to disable the hold button on a Honeywell T8112c1023(1) thermostat (5/2 programmable). Some people in my house insist on using the hold button. They seem to think it keeps the temp. at that level better than if they don't use the hold. Of course it does not, and disables the set back programming, until I come along and push the run button to disable it. Thank you.

    i don't think you can on that thermostat.
    install a lock box or a touch screen thermostat that you can lock the screen.

    Honeywell 8000 can be fully locked, or partially locked. Not cheap, but it will accomplish what you're looking for.

    Get a vision pro by Honeywell. It features a screen lock.

    Make whoever is pushing the hold button pay the electric and gas bill would probably be the easiest and even profitable route.

    Unless you are referring to your wife, of course.

    Thanks for all the tips. I did try the "you can pay the bill", but it did not work well.

    you could disassemble the thermostat and remove the button.
