Evolutionrsystem must NOT be used to power the Remote
This instruction covers the physical installation and start up of
WiFi B--SAM. Use this instruction to guide the actual installation
process after the Evolution system(s) have been installed. One
WiFi B--SAM is capable of handling two Evolution systems.
The WiFi B--SAM connects to a network router and allows remote
connectivity for up to two Evolution systems within the same
building. The Evolution system owner, as well as authorized
dealer, can monitor and control the system via the Internet, as well
as by telephone. The WiFi B--SAM communicates wirelessly
through the homeowner’s cable or DSL Internet service.
Broadband Internet service with a wireless network router is
required. The WiFi B--SAM is not compatible with dial--up
Internet service. The WiFi B--SAM can also monitor a dry--contact
sensor to provide a warning for the presence of water in the
building, or some other use. If the sensor is active, the Evolution
system will not be disabled or shut down.
The WiFi B--SAM uses a web--based application to control and
monitor the Evolution System. This application will work with any
graphic user interface PC operating system (Microsoft, Apple,
Linux). The web--based application is optimized for use with
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer version 6 and above. Other web
browsers are compatible with some possible screen formatting

Component Location and Wiring Considerations
ELECTRICAL OPERATION HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury
Before installing, modifying, or servicing system, the main
electrical disconnect switch must be in the OFF position and
install a lockout tag. There may be more than 1 power
disconnect switch. Lock out and tag switch with a suitable
NOTE: All wiring must comply with national, state, and local
LOCATING THE UNIT -- WiFi B--SAM is approved for indoor
use only and should never be installed with any of its components
exposed to outdoor environmental conditions. The WiFi B--SAM
may be installed in any area where the temperature remains
between --4_F/--20_C and 158_F/70_C, and there is no
condensation. The cover must be installed to prevent damage from
other sources. Do not locate where it will be accessible to children.
It should be mounted in the vertical position.
For wiring convenience, the WiFi B--SAM can be located
anywhere between the network router and HVAC equipment. WiFi
B--SAM does not need to be located near the HVAC equipment
and can be located near the router, where the wireless signal
strength remains strong (good or very good).
EQUIPMENT DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in equipment
Do not mount unit on plenum, ductwork, or flush against
WIRING CONSIDERATIONS -- Ordinary thermostat wire is
ideal when wiring the WiFi B--SAM (shielded cable is not
necessary). Use 22 gauge or larger for normal wiring. Lengths over
100 ft / 30 m should use 20 gauge or larger wire.
INSTALL WiFi B--SAM
The WiFi B--SAM is designed so that wires can be inserted
through the back cover from above or below. Plan wire routing
1. Remove cover to access mounting holes.
2. Mount back plate to wall using screws and wall anchors
3. Level back plate and tighten screws.
EQUIPMENT DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in equipment
damage or improper operation.
Improper wiring of the ABC connector will cause the system
to operate improperly. Check to make sure all wiring is
correct before proceeding with installation or turning on of
Connect Evolution Systems
Connect the A, B, and C wires from the Evolution system to
terminals labeled A1, B1, and C1. Connect the second Evolution
system (if present) to the terminals labeled A2, B2 and C2.
ABC bus wiring only requires a three--wire connection; however, it
is good practice to run thermostat cable greater than three wires in
the event of a damaged or broken wire during the installation.
It is recommended that the following color--code be used when
wiring each ABC connector:
A -- Green Data A
B -- Yellow Data B
C -- White 24VAC (Com)
NOTE: The D--wire (red-- 24 VAC hot) from the Evolution
system is not connected to the WiFi B--SAM. It is not mandatory
that the above color code be used, but each ABC connector in the
system MUST be wired consistently.
Connect Auxiliary Sensor (optional)
The WiFi B--SAM will support a dry contact sensor for use with
water detection or some other use as seen fit. Connect one side of
the contacts to connector AUX C (common) and the other side to
connector AUX (input). The sensor input can provide up to 20mA
at 5 volts d.c. If the sensor input is active, it will not shutdown or
affect operation of the HVAC system(s). A pop--up message will
appear on the User Interface indicating the auxiliary sensor is
active. The homeowner will also be notified via email and/or
phone if so chosen on the Internet web interface.
Connect Power Source
A separate 24VAC transformer is included to power the WiFi
B--SAM. Do NOT connect the D--wire (24VAC hot) from the
The transformer is heavy. Make sure it is secured to the power
outlet with an appropriate screw through the boss on the
The User Interface of the Evolution system will automatically find
the WiFi B--SAM at power on. It will enter the system installation
screens automatically and will display the Equipment Summary
screen when finished. The Equipment Summary screen will
display REMOTE ACCESS near the bottom.
If REMOTE ACCESS is not displayed on the Equipment
Summary screen, check connections to the ABC wires as well as
ensure the yellow LED is lit on the WiFi B--SAM (this ensures the
module has power). The Green LED will be lit next to each ABC
connection if the User Interface has established communications.
After the Evolution system has learned the WiFi B--SAM, the
homeowner’s network parameters may be entered at the User
Interface. If the homeowner’s network router is setup for DHCP,
then the WiFi B--SAM’s network parameters cannot be changed.
To edit the network parameters, enter the Advance Setup screens
and press the right side button several times until WiFi B--SAM
MAC Address and Serial Number
The MAC Address and Serial Number of the WiFi B--SAM is used
by the system owner to register their system with Bryant. Write
down the MAC Address and WiFi B--SAM serial number in the
home owner’s guide. The serial number can be found on the WiFi
B--SAM packaging, at the bottom of the large WiFi B--SAM circuit
board, or in the User Interface INSTALL/SERVICE menus under
SERVICE-->MODEL/SERIAL NUMBERS selection. The MAC
address can be found on a label on the wireless module.
If the MAC Address is missing or unreadable, it can be found by
entering the INSTALL/SERVICE menus of the User Interface (10
second press of the Advance button). The MAC Address will be
listed on the SETUP--SAM SETUP-->SAM SETUP 1 screen.
Ethernet Module Green Light
A flashing green light on the Ethernet module indicates no
connection with the network. The light will remain solid when
connection is made.
The purpose of this test is to verify effective 2--way Internet
Press and hold the TEST switch for at least 5 seconds. A flashing
Yellow LED will indicate the test is in progress. A flashing Yellow
and Green LED means the transmission is complete and the
System Access Module is waiting for a reply. A constant Green
LED means the test has passed. This test should be completed in
just a few seconds.
If the Red LED is lit solid, then the WiFi B--SAM failed to send the
message. Ensure that network connectivity is present and that the
homeowner’s Internet service is operating properly.
If the Yellow LED is lit solid, then the WiFi B--SAM sent its
message but did not receive a reply. The Bryant server may be
down. Retry at a later time.
Test aborting -- There is no method to abort a test once it is started,
other than to remove power.
The LEDs will maintain their state for 1 hour after the test.
Pressing the Radio Test button momentarily will clear the LEDs.
Pressing the Radio Test button again for five seconds will repeat
the radio test.
An RS--232 port has been provided for connection to home
automation equipment. Consult your home automation supplier for
Updating System Profile
The Evolution System will automatically send system information
to Bryant’s computer servers within one hour after the system has
been successfully installed. Access to the system via the Internet or
telephone will not be available until this occurs. The system can be
forced to send its information through the following process if
Internet and telephone access is required immediately. Press and
hold the Radio Test button for 15 seconds. When the button is first
pressed the Red LED will turn on. Five seconds into the press, the

COM1 LED will turn on. Release the button when the Green LED
The Red LED will flash when messages are being sent. The Red
and Yellow LEDs will flash when the WiFi B--SAM is waiting for
message replies. Upon successful profiling, both Green LEDs will
be lit. If profiling is not successful, the Red LED will be lit solid.
If the Evolution system ABC wiring is moved from connector 1 to
connector 2 (or vice versa), or Evolution equipment has changed,
the WiFi B--SAM must update Bryant’s servers with the new
information. This will happen automatically within one hour, or
can be manually forced with the process described above.
Local PC Access
The Evolution System(s) can be monitored, and the WiFi B--SAM
setup can be changed, through use of the WiFi B--SAM’s
embedded web server. From a PC on the same network as the WiFi
B--SAM, type the IP address of the WiFi B--SAM in the address
field of your web browser.
