The Venstar ColorTouch Thermostat is packed with features for comfort and convenience
With all the new gadgets coming out these days, you might be surprised to know that now you can connect to your thermostat via wi-fi to manage your home temperature remotely. One thermostat that’s getting a lot of attention is the Venstar ColorTouch Thermostat. It’s a programmable, touchscreen thermostat with quite a number of appealing features. Customizable photo slideshows, interchangeable face plates to match your home’s color scheme, and a temperature scheduler that can be programmed for up to four periods each day are a few perks that come with this eye-catching little gadget. There’s even an option to password protect the thermostat’s screen, limiting access to kids or guests.
This programmable thermostat can reduce energy costs by allowing a homeowner to customize their temperature settings throughout the day and night. It comes built-in with more than a dozen nature and holiday themes on a full color high-resolution digital screen. You can turn the thermostat into a digital photo frame and add up to 100 of your own custom photos as a slideshow or background wallpaper. What other thermostat does that?
The Venstar ColorTouch also has one other neat little feature: a night dimmer. You can adjust the brightness of the thermostat’s screen depending on the time of day. Don’t like that annoying bright screen at night? You can change the settings to automatically dim the screen at night.
If you happen to be interested in seeing how much energy your home is using, you can access the Energy Usage Information screen on the ColorTouch Thermostat to view visual graphs and data on the last seven days of heating and cooling in your home. This is also a great way to tell if your system may need maintenance.
The latest feature that has been added to the Venstar ColorTouch thermostat recently is the addition of the Skyport Wi-Fi key. This additional software comes with a mobile app that allows you to log in on virtually an mobile device and control your thermostat settings, view alerts or the current home temperature, see the weather and even send text messages to your own thermostat!
