Abstract
(EN)
A thermostat for controlling an HVAC system and related systems, methods, and computer program products for facilitating user-friendly installation of the thermostat are described. For one embodiment, automated installation verification is performed by the thermostat by automatically sensing which wires have been inserted, selecting a candidate HVAC operating function {e.g., heating or cooling) that is consistent with a subset of HVAC signal types indicated by the inserted wires, applying control signals to the HVAC system to invoke that HVAC operating function, and processing a time sequence of acquired temperature readings to determine whether that HVAC operating function was successfully carried out. For one embodiment, the initial automated testing of the heating and cooling functions are only carried out at times for which such heating or cooling function would normally be invoked during normal operation of the thermostat. Automated determination of a heat pump call convention is also described.

Cette invention concerne un thermostat commandant un système de chauffage/ventilation et climatisation (CVCA) et autres système connexes, des procédés et des programmes informatiques facilitant le montage de ce thermostat. Dans un mode de réalisation, la vérification automatisée du montage est effectuée par le thermostat qui détecte automatiquement quels fils ont été branchés, sélectionne une fonction de marche candidate pour le chauffage/ventilation et la climatisation (par exemple, refroidissement ou chauffage) cohérente avec un sous-ensembles de signaux CVCA indiqués par les fils branchés, applique des signaux de commande au systèmes de chauffage/ventilation et climatisation pour appeler cette fonction de marche CVCA et traite une séquence dans le temps de valeurs de température pour déterminer si la fonction de marche CVCA a été mise en œuvre correctement. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, les essais initiaux des fonctions de chauffage ou de refroidissement ne sont effectués qu'au moment où lesdites fonctions sont normalement appelées pendant le fonctionnement normal du thermostat. Est également décrite un procédé de détermination automatisée d'un protocole d'appel pour une pompe à chaleur.
