START HERE

  1. Download the LUX Products App to your mobile device and create an account.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-2
  2. Now set your phone aside and turn off the power at the circuit breaker to both your heating and cooling systems before performing any wiring.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-3
  3. Confirm that your heating and cooling system is powered down by changing the temperature on your thermostat.
    Hint: Your system should not make any noise and you should not feel any air exiting your vents.
  4. Remove the front of your old thermostat from its base. If you see thick black wires, wire nuts, or any labels that say 120-240VAC or High Voltage, your system is not compatible with KONO Smart. Please call LUX Technical Support at 856.234.8803 before proceeding with your installation. If you do not see any high-voltage labels or wires, you can continue with your installation.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-4
  5. Use the included wire labels to mark which wire is connected to each terminal in your old thermostat. Take a picture of your current wiring layout – it may be helpful to reference this picture later.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-5
  6. Confirm if you have a C-Wire. If you do, please turn to the next page. If you do not, please skip ahead to page 11.

Installing with a C-wire

Before starting
Turn off the power at the circuit breaker to both your heating and cooling systems before performing any wiring. You will not need the included LUX Power Bridge.

  1.  Identify your system configuration (see wiring diagrams in the appendix). Potential configurations include:
    • Conventional 1H/1C (Y, G, W, R, C)
    • Conventional 2H/1C (Y, G, W, W2, R, C)
    • Heat Pump Single-Stage (Y, G, R, O/B, C)
    • Heat Pump with auxiliary heat or dual fuel (Y, G, R, O/B, W, C)
      If you have only one R wire, please use the RH terminal. If you have a different configuration other than what is listed above, please call LUX Technical Support for help with your installation.
  2. Remove each wire from its terminal – make sure that they don’t fall down back into the wall.
  3. Remove the mounting screws from the base of the old thermostat. Remove the base from the wall.
  4. If you would like to use the trim plate or wall anchors, you can install them now.
  5. Separate KONO Smart from its base. Pull the wires from your wall through the center hole of the KONO Smart base. Secure the base to the wall using the included mounting hardware.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-7

Option 1 – Conventional (furnace) Systems:

  1. Following the terminal labels marked “Conventional” on the thermostat base, press the lever and insert each labeled wire into the top hole of the corresponding terminal.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-8
  2. If you have both an RC and RH wire present, then remove the red cap next to the reset button. You can now skip ahead to step 2.8.

Option 2 – Heat Pump Systems:LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-9

  1. Following the terminal labels marked “Heat Pump” on the thermostat base and referencing your wiring photo, press the lever and insert each labeled wire into the top hole of the corresponding terminal.
    If your old thermostat did not have a W1 wire but did have a W2 wire, please insert the W2 wire into the W1 terminal.
  2. If you have both an O wire and a B wire (i.e. in a Trane system), please install the B wire to the “C” terminal.
    For more detailed directions, please see the wiring diagrams in the appendix or call LUX Technical Support.
  3. Securely fasten KONO Smart onto its base. Once it has clicked into place, return power to your heating and cooling system.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-10
  4. After your thermostat powers up, you are ready to configure KONO Smart for your heating and cooling system and connect to a wireless network.
    Please skip ahead to the “Connecting to the Network” section of this manual on page 15.

Hint: helpful videos showing how to wire a thermostat with the LUX Power Bridge are available at LuxProducts.com/videos

  1. Starting at your thermostat, confirm that you have one of the system configurations listed below:
    • Conventional 1H/1C (Y, G, W, R)
    • Conventional 2H/1C (Y, G, W1, W2, R)
      If you have a different configuration other than what is listed above, please call LUX Technical Support for help with your installation.
  2. Remove each wire from its terminal – make sure that they do not fall down back into the wall.
  3. Remove the mounting screws from the base of the old thermostat. Remove the base from the wall.
  4. If you would like to use the trim plate or wall anchors, you can install them now.
  5. Separate KONO Smart from its base.
    Pull the wires from your wall through the center hole of the KONO Smart base. Secure the base to the wall using the included mounting hardware.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-12
  6. Following the terminal labels marked “Power Bridge” on the thermostat base, press the lever and insert each labeled wire into the top hole of the corresponding terminal. Connect as follows:
    • Y Wire  Terminal 1

  9. Step 3.9:
    • Matching the letters, label the wires connected to your furnace with the included white Power Bridge wire labels. Take a picture of the wiring at your control board.
    • Disconnect these wires from the control board.
    • Open the Power Bridge and insert each of your old wires into the corresponding numbered terminals in the Power Bridge.
    • Finally, insert the Power Bridge wires (with the colored labels) into the corresponding terminals on your furnace control board.LUX-Kono-KN-S-MG1-Thermostat-Unauthorized-Version-fig.-14
  10. Secure the LUX Power Bridge to your furnace. If you had to remove a panel or door to access your control panel, replace it now.
