Before You Start

• For specific information on how to wire the thermostat to the HVAC equipment, refer to the e7 Installation
Instructions and getting started videos which provides the detailed information for wiring and mounting your new
e7 thermostat. Go to the INNCOM website:
• A unique network address or Room Identification (RoomID) must be assigned to each thermostat regardless of
whether it is installed as a standalone application or as part of a wired (RS485) or wireless (RF) DeepMesh network
in a centrally controlled Energy Management System (EMS) using the INNcontrol 3 Supervisor software. A rooms
list document is typically provided by Honeywell that lists all rooms and the associated functionality. Refer to the
property specific documentation for more information.
• The e7 is configured so that it will not call for heat, cool, or low, medium, and high fan speeds to protect the HVAC
equipment when it arrives with default settings from the factory. The installer will need to complete the
Initialization steps, or the HVAC configuration will need to be pushed to the thermostat from the engINN
commissioning tool after the RoomID has been set in the Parameter Menu.
• It is assumed that if you have received your e7 thermostat and you are ready to begin installation, Honeywell has
determined through the sales process that the selected HVAC equipment is compatible with the selected e7
thermostat. If you believe this assumption to be incorrect, or you have not validated that the e7 is compatible with
the selected HVAC equipment, contact our technical support service center prior to installation.
• Always research thermostat placement carefully before you pull cable. Consult with your system provider on the
best placement and follow their guidance to mount it in a neutral location. The cost of poor thermostat placement is
high, both in loss of guest comfort and unnecessary energy costs. Follow these guidelines to determine the
appropriate installation location for the thermostat:
— Place thermostats away from windows to avoid bathing the thermostat with solar radiation, which invali-
dates the unit's temperature sensitivity.
— Never place thermostats on a wall where an open bathroom or closet door will cover them. A covered ther-
mostat will not register the correct room temperature
— Take care to place thermostats out of the direct line of air movement. A thermostat mounted on a wall
directly across from HVAC discharge vents will be surrounded by air that quickly satisfies the thermostat's
guest temperature setting, but not register the room's overall temperature.
— Avoid placing a thermostat on a wall near the fan coil. This causes a waterfall effect of heated or cooled air
movement across the thermostat which triggers the HVAC's response to false room temperature readings.
— Beware of value engineering proposals during construction; such as optimizing room wiring to minimize cable
runs between thermostats and the HVAC placement. Although this type of value engineering can save money,
it often results in higher energy use and compromised guest comfort.
— Make sure:
• The thermostat is mounted on the wall with the bottom of the unit about 5' from the floor.
• The unit is level
• The manufacturer's installation instructions are followed.
