2. Download the Honeywell App
The next step in line is to open the Honeywell app on your mobile. In case the application is not downloaded, do the honors now. For this, access the store of your mobile device. Know that the GOOGLE PLAY STORE can be accessed by ANDROID users and the APPLE APP STORE can be accessed by the IOS users. Doing vice-versa will not work for you.
Enter the name of the app in the search bar and tap the SEARCH icon. From the results, select app, tap the DOWNLOAD button, and wait for it to get installed. Do not perform background activities during the process. Once it does, launch the app on the mobile in use.

Thereafter, tap the NO button to confirm that no temperature is being displayed. In case you are not a contractor and would like to set up your thermostat at your home, select the NO option again. Tap the CONFIRM button to confirm your decision.
4. Connect to the Home Network
Make sure that the thermostat is displaying a network name. Once done, select the YES button. Select the desired WiFi network and hit NEXT.
