Hi Wyze team, I’ve had a Nest thermostat working on a heat only, two wire config (R + W) with an old furnace, for the last two years. It seems I will need to order a two wire power adapter and move to a 3 or 4 wire config to get my Wyze thermostat working…?
How do you wire the R+W to a new config, with C + Rc for power and …?? for the previous R+W wires? Previously, I got an unpowered o/off heat relay config (for gas fireplace) working on the C / RC for power plus Rh / W1 for heat. However this home furnace has a POWERED relay (which the Nest thermostat was able to get power from). What wires to use here?
Thanks so much for the help. Wyze team, please, better docs for those who have to transition from something that works to …??? with your setup. If you have an existing thermostat as I do a lot of the time your setup wizard totally dead ends, though it is possible to use your thermostat. Having a better wizard - and perhaps a $10 power supply as part of your offering - would strengthen this product a lot.
Also , it would have been a good design goal to meet the same needs as the existing companies out there (eg Nest) and to do so at a lower cost.
Thanks Everyone! All that said, still loving affordable and generally usable Wyze products.
