How to Find Honeywell Thermostat MAC Address

Why would you need to know how to find Honeywell thermostat MAC address? It helps in troubleshooting internet problems between your smart t-stat and the Honeywell Total Comfort Connect website.  Now all WiFi thermostats have a MAC id.  Why?  Because without this, you would not be able to control the thermostat outside your home.

Thus, you can find the t-stat’s MAC ID and MAC CRC values as well, using this method.   How so?  We find these also on the same screen as the IP address.  And, you get to that screen the same way, whether searching for IP address, MAC, or CRC values.  You also need the MAC CRC and MAC address numbers when registering your Honeywell WiFi thermostat.  Note that you cannot set your thermostat remotely if you do not register it.
