Compatible with iPhone®, iTouch®, iPad®, Android, Mac and PC devices, the mobile app is free. The ColorTouch and Skyport Wi-Fi key can be purchased together or separately. The Skyport Wi-Fi key can also be purchased separately and used with the original ColorTouch thermostat.
"With ColorTouch Commercial and Wi-Fi- key, HVAC contractors and installers can provide customer service using the free mobile app on their mobile devices.
