Long story short, have old thermostat with no manual. Looking to update, need someone to give me a quick sanity check

http://www.smarthome.com/2441TH/INSTEON-Thermostat/p.aspx

Current wiring: https://picasaweb.google.com/115869141692447746107/Home?authkey=Gv1sRgCPbHrpf0oOuLOA#5786320970897538402

Current thermostat's wiring is compatible with the insteon thermostat. I double check it with the Insteon thermostat's manual and it looks good. Anyone one have time to give it last look? Thanks

What is the model of the current thermostat? It seems that you have six wires. Do you have two heat stages or a heat pump?

I can't find the model number + the previous owner does not have the manual. :( Added 2 more pictures in case anyone knows the model.

Yes. I do have 6 wires (R, C, W1, Y1, W2, G). I don't have a heat pump and as far as I know, I do not have 2 heat stages.

An orange or brown wire on W2 suggests a 2nd heat stage, but the Insteon thermostat can handle that.

It's not compatible with a heat pump is why I asked. Orange is sometimes used in that respect.

Did more research and I take the "as far as I know, I do not have 2 heat stages." statement back. It looks like the furnace is a 2 stage gas furnace. Added the furnace model number to the photo album. Looks like I'm good.
