How to Schedule Events on the nSpire touch/WiFi Thermostat

Video Transcript

For this video, we're going to cover programming, the nSpiration series, touch screen thermostats, let's say that you want to change the schedule or the temperatures during the schedule for your personal preference. There is a program built in already. It's in your documentation. But if you want to change it, just go to the upper right hand part of the screen here. And press those three lines and do heating schedule, view, edit schedule. And here's where you get to choose the time it comes on in the morning, the time it goes to a cooler temperature in the morning. Then later when you come home, the temperature that you want wanted to read. And then when you go to sleep, the temperature you want it to go down to. 

 If you look down here at the bottom, you can see it says Monday and you can just do this by pressing this button to change it to different days of the week. So what we're going to do is we're going to set it for Monday. And then use that the entire week. So let's say I like the six AM time, but I want it to be warmer. Most people choose 82. You can make it whatever you want to. We're going to set it for 82. And that temperature is for the floor. It's not for the ambient air temperature. It's for the floor temperature itself. So I'm going to set this to 82. And it's going to be 82 degrees at 6:00 AM press, OK, then at 9:00 a.m., I want it to go down to something that's not quite so cold, because the colder, you make this reading, the longer it will take for the next session to heat up. So I'm going to set this to a little bit higher temperature, something like 70 and press OK.  So at 6:00 a.m., it's going to go up to 82 and at 9:00 AM it's going to drop it to 70. Then you can see these are grayed out here. The next item is the 5:00 PM and 5:00 PM at this point, we're going to get it back to 82 degrees again. 

You once again, you can set this to whatever you want. And remember, this is the temperature of the floor. So I'm going to press that. And then overnight. I want it to get down. Not quite so cold. I'm going to set the floor temperature to 70. Press OK, now we have a coming on at 6:00 AM on Monday morning, going to 82 degrees, cooling off at 9:00 AM we're not using these two, three and four is not being used. Then it's going to come on at 5:00, go up to 82, then at 11 it's going to drop down to 70. So what I'd like to do is I'd like to make this for the entire week. So I press this button up here saying copy to. Once I do that, I can make it for whatever days of the week, I want it to. So I'm going to make this Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and leave it right there. So this is my work day set up and save. So now the program is set to be exactly the same on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If you want to change Saturday, you just go in here. And you can leave it on all day. If you want to change the temperature from 70, we're going to adjust the floor temperature up to 82 because that's what we're used to. Once again, you can set this to whatever you want. If you have a carpet or laminate, please see the instructions for those, the limitations for those products and they'll tell you what the maximum temperature can be. And we suggest setting it to that. So that's how you do your settings here on our new touch screen units.
