Installation Process


It is recommended that you follow the below installation process in order to ensure you are running the latest version of the [driver].

  • Unzip and Extract all EDRVC Files from downloaded file into the Driver Installation folder.
  • Open Climate, Communication Devices, Add New Communication Device
  • Navigate to the folder where the driver is located and Choose the Honeywell Home Driver

Note:  If the driver doesn’t appear under the Communication Type then make sure that the Honeywell Home driver is extracted to the same folder where all the other drivers are installed from.  It’s good practice to create one folder on the computer where all the third party EDRVC files live.

  1. Extract the downloaded zip file to you EDRVC folder (the folder where all custom EDRVC drivers live)
  2. Go to Thermostat, then add a Honeywell Home driver.  Then Delete it.
