If there is no control of air movement between floors and you have it on cooling then any cold air will go down to the lower floor
or alternately if you have it set on heating all the hot air will rise to the upper floor
where is the system located (upstairs or down stairs ) and where is the thermostat located
to get control close any upstairs to down stairs doors or erect a heavy curtain across the stair well

close ceiling vents
the hot air down stairs rises through the vents and adds to the upstairs heating
same as hot air goes up the stairs to the upper rooms

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?

With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

Message: "in recovery"

the "in recovery mode" is refering to a thing called energy recovery management its one of the features on your tstat what it does- when you are using the program on your tstat the "in recovery" starts your unit early so if the tstat is set to be 70 degrees at 8 in the morning when 8 o clock hits it will already be 70 degrees in your house you can turn this feature off if you want in the installation setup codes

Warm air rises and if the upstairs thermostat is on it will onerride to lower the temp upstairs. To have the dowstairs thermostat govern, the up stairs must be off . The whole house will balance to the controlling thermostat.
