If your thermostat is selected for home use, it is recommended that you don't create an administrator password because there is no way to change it to a new password if you’ve lost or cannot remember it. If you’ve created a password but lost it, contact the product supplier or the agency for support.
If your thermostat is selected for commercial use, setting an administrator password can help you prevent unauthorized access to “Advanced Settings” if it is installed in a public place. You can create the password in the setup wizard when you use your thermostat for the first time. You can also create, modify, or deactivate it later under “Advanced Settings”.
Compared to a numeric screen lock, an administrator password is used to protect the following settings:
- Checking the basic information about the thermostat.
- Viewing/Using the activation code of the thermostat.
- Changing or deactivating the administrator password.
- Setting up WLAN connection.
- Changing date and time.
- Changing application settings.
- Changing basic/extended configurations and doing factory resets.
If you cannot remember the created administrator password, turn to the product supplier or agency for support.
If your thermostat is selected for home use, options related to WLAN connection is accessible from “Settings” instead of “Advanced Settings”.
