What Is the Thermostat Scheduler?

The Thermostat Scheduler walks you through the process of creating a Thermostat schedule to set your preferred home temperature throughout the day and night. Control your home's heat and air conditioning from your Subscriber Portal to manage energy costs and stay comfortable. You can even create schedules for multiple Thermostats at once!

Adding a Schedule

  1. Sign in to your Subscriber Portal. (See Sign Into Your XFINITY Home Subscriber Portal or XFINITY Home App for Mobile Devices.)
  2. In the Rules & Modes menu, select Thermostat Schedules.
    XFINITY Home Subscriber Portal - Rules & Modes menu.

    Did You Know? You can also access the Thermostat Scheduler by selecting Thermostats in the Devices menu. Then, on the Thermostats page, click Add Thermostat Schedules. (If schedules already exist for all your Thermostats, the button will say Manage Thermostat Schedules.)
  3. If each of your Thermostats already has a schedule, the Rules & Modes page displays with the existing Thermostat schedules listed. You can change these schedules, but you can't add a new one unless you delete an existing one.
  4. The Thermostat Scheduler welcome page lets you change the default temperatures from Fahrenheit to Celsius. Click Next.

  5. If you're happy with the times as shown in the grid, leave them as is. Otherwise, select the times you want to change.

  6. Time of day: Click the Wake, Day, Evening, or Sleep row heading to select a time for the whole week at once. For example, you could:
    • Set Wake from 6:00 to 8:00 AM to get ready for the day at a cozy temperature.
    • Set Day from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM to save energy while you're away from home.
    • Set Evening from 6:00 to 10:00 PM to return to a comfortable home temperature.
    • Set Sleep from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM to save energy overnight.
  7. Specific day and time: Click an individual time button. To change multiple times at once, hold down the Ctrl key (Command on a Mac) and click each time you want to change. Once they're selected, click one of them again to open the Date & Time pop-up and change all the selected times.
  8. When you're finished, click Next.
  9. Now set your temperatures for Cool in the same way that you set the times. The name of the Thermostat you're setting temperatures for shows at the top of the page.

    Have more than one Thermostat? The wizard will walk you through setting up the cool and heat settings for each additional Thermostat that doesn't already have a schedule.
  12. When you're finished, click Next.
  13. Now select which temperature mode you'd like to run:
    • Cool my home to activate the Cool schedule.
    • Heat my home to activate the Heat schedule.
    • Schedule Off to keep the new schedule, but continue with your existing settings without turning the schedule on.
  14. When you're finished, click Next.
    XFINITY Home Subscriber Portal - Set the System Mode screen
     
  15. A summary of your new schedule displays. Click Finish.
    XFINITY Home Subscriber Portal - Thermostat Scheduler end screen
     
You're done! Your new schedule appears in the rules list on the Rules & Modes page. If you scheduled multiple Thermostats at once, you'll see a separate schedule for each Thermostat. Now you can change the schedules individually to further customize the times and temperatures for each Thermostat.
