I have approximately 12 of your thermostats in my vacation

Customer Question

HI, I have approximately 12 of your thermostats in my vacation home. I want to change them to units that I can operate by computer of phone. All the units are the type that the face is removable. I would like to remove the face on the old one and plug in the new upgraded version. The model numbers I have are TH51000 1006 0747, TH81106U1003 0751, AND TH832U1UU8-073. Thank You, Terry

Terry unfortunately it will be a bit more complicated then just plug and play so to speak.None of the current thermostats you have are wifi compatible.

You will have to remove the wiring and replace sub base and all.
