Customer Question
I've just purchased a RTH9585...
I've just purchased a RTH9585 thermostat. A major reason that I purchased this model is for the outdoor temperature display. Now I find that WiFi is the source for this display. I have WiFi provided by my modem, but the only use I make of this WiFi capability is for my printer.I'm not at all familiar with WiFi or WiFi networks. Do I just have a single network? I've certainly not established any networks. I don't have any passwords. Can I connect the thermostat to my WiFi?My existing thermostat uses a thermocouple to provide the outdoor temperature, and of course, has terminals for the thermocouple in the thermostat. This provides the outdoor temperature AT MY HOME. What is the source of the temperature displayed via WiFi, the local weather service?Does Honeywell make a programmable thermostat that uses an outdoor thermocouple? If so, What is the model number.Chuck Livengood***@******.***

Yes Honeywell makes the VisionPro 8000 series that has the S1 and S2 terminals for the outdoor sensor.

The thermostat you currently have uses data from local weather just your cell phone does rather than actual temp at your home.
