There are consumer grade heatpump t-stats available at big box stores. (Honeywell is the best - make sure it's compatible with multi-stage equipment)

However, heatpump manufacturers used to have proprietary wire labelling schemes. If available, consult a service manual or wiring diagram to determine which wire controls what. (Common(C), power(R), reversing valve(O/B), outdoor unit contactor(Y), aux heat (W2/E/Aux), fan(G))

The Honeywell RTH 7000 series will be the best t-stat from retail stores.

Do you plan on using the stat's set back for your heat pump?
