There are four modes on your Honeywell Thermostat. These are wake, sleep, return, and leave. Each of the modes on the thermostat has its purpose that I will be discussing in detail.

Let us discuss in detail these modes available on your Honeywell Thermostat.

Before you understand what is sleep means you need to understand what is wake means on your thermostat. Wake is a feature on your Honeywell thermostat that has a scheduled time that allows your thermostat to either cool or heat the room based upon a particular schedule.

What Does Sleep Mean On A Honeywell Thermostat?

SupposeSuppose you want your house temperature to be cooled to 69F or to your desired temperature at 6:00 am then you will set the wake timing in your thermostat to 6:00 am at the temperature 69F.

Soon after that, your thermostat will start in and ensure that the temperature in your room is maintained at 69 degrees Fahrenheit. For your Honeywell Thermostat, sleep refers to the time during which your thermostat is not awake or is outside of the scheduled wake time that you have programmed into the thermostat.

Typically, you do not want your thermostat to change the temperature for a period while you are sleeping, so when you go to bed, you set your thermostat to sleep mode, which by default begins at 10:00 p.m. and lasts until the next morning before your wake time.

This feature is introduced in your Thermostat for Energy Saving. As a period of the day, you plan for your thermostat to heat or cool your house.
