You got that right benncool,make it simple, i use w/r stats to.Those things are to complecated for me.When i install those digitals i tell the customer to program it them selfs.
Hell i can`t even get the remote for the tv to work for me.
If you guys can use an ATM then you can program one of these. You can program one on the website and although it is a simple program some people have done it in under 15 secodns including time and date. Personal best is around 45 seconds.
To answer some of the question:
You can run it 5 wire with a common or off of batteries.
It is heat pump as well as Gas single stage Electric single stage gas 2 stage electric 2 stage heat pump 2 stage gas 3 stage elec 2 stage 2 stage or single stage cool. Hydronic heat or run millivolts through it. It can be either programmable or nonprogrammable. If you lose power the batter inside keeps the time and date as well as program for up to 10 years.
The only thing this stat does not do that I have seen is line voltage. It is a 1 stat fits 98%. They also will have one that is RF that comes out later this year.
