You are here:

There may be times you’ll want to suspend your normal thermostat schedule, like when having a guest over or going on vacation. Fortunately, with the Arize Thermostat hold function, there is no need to reconfigure your thermostat schedule to accommodate your plans.  

The hold feature on your Arize Thermostat allows you to override your thermostat schedule whenever you desire a different temperature setting. You can set a temporary or permanent thermostat hold using either the Arize Thermostat or the Arize Resident App.   

To start a temperature hold through the Arize Resident App:  

  1. To initiate a hold, adjust the set temperature or change the thermostat mode. This should be done while running a schedule. 
  2. You will now see the updated hold status beneath the temperature slider, with a hold options button visible as well.  

To edit a temperature hold through the Arize Resident App: 

  1. After initiating a temperature hold, press the Hold Options button  

  1. Select how long you want the hold to last. Your options will include: Until Next Schedule Time2 Hours, 4 Hours, and Hold Permanently 

  1. You will now see the updated hold status beneath the temperature slider  

Note: Hold Permanently will hold the thermostat mode and set the temperature indefinitely. You will need to remove the hold before reverting to your previously scheduled settings.
