the software is not communicating so we have to do it manually on each thermostat. We were provided instructions before from Founten but can not remember the actual steps.
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 10 months ago

To make sure I understand....you do NOT want to control thermostat individually from main panel...but AT the individual thermostat physically?

This is not in the operating files...I will need to check for you and reply later. You will receive an email when answer is ready.
