That would be easy.

Connect the red wire on the thermostat to the Battery + on the battery.

Connect the green wire on the thermostat to the B- terminal on the control box. Add a second wire from the B- terminal to the Battery -
on the battery.

Hook up the 120VAC and everything will run assuming you have also hooked up the compressor, low fan, high fan, white furnace (heat strip) wire and freeze sensor.

The green wire from thermostat is currently connected to GH (HIGH Fan) on the control box?
I just want to make sure.

First of all, welcome to the forums. I hope you get all your questions answered and post often. [emoticon]

Your pictures were too large so I edited your post to correct the images width. If you will follow these directions exactly, it is very easy to post pictures on our forums. One of our moderators, 1492, developed this photo posting app to post your pictures. It works for other internet sites also. There is no need to have a separate hosting site for your pictures in order to use it.

It is very simple to use.
1. Upload your picture from your computer to the app.
2. Copy the resulting URL.
3. Paste that URL into your post without ANY changes. No additions or deletions.
Your picture will then appear in your post and be properly sized for use on our forums.[emoticon]

I wish I have done more research before spending too much money for this task.
I have a residential thermostat, PRO T701. powered by batteries. I look at the wiring is not that complicated, and I like it, as it's already powered by its own.
Do you have any info/suggestion that I can use this one with the above control box?
Thanks much--much in advance
Nick
