CHATSWORTH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/13 -- HVAC contractors and installers can remotely monitor, control and troubleshoot their commercial clients' ColorTouch thermostats using the free mobile app on their mobile devices. Available from Venstar®, a leading thermostat and energy management systems supplier, the mobile app gives contractors and installers remote access to their clients' ColorTouch thermostats from virtually anywhere they have Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G, or Internet connections via Skyport Cloud Services.
"Using Venstar's free mobile app, HVAC contractors and installers are empowered to remotely provide customer service for Venstar's ColorTouch thermostat with Wi-Fi Key," said Steve Dushane, president and CEO, Venstar Inc. "This lets them remotely troubleshoot issues from virtually anywhere there is Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G or Internet connection. This may eliminate the time and cost to do an on-site customer visit while still allowing the ability to quickly respond to customer issues."
The ColorTouch commercial mobile app allows HVAC contractors to remotely monitor and control up to 100 locations over the Internet using Venstar's Skyport Cloud Services. Multiple people can control thermostats at the same location(s) individually from their mobile devices.
Once a Skyport Cloud account is created online, HVAC contractors and installers can use the free mobile app on their mobile devices or directly from the Web to:
•Instantly access up to 100 commercial locations; •Easily monitor and control comfort settings at multiple buildings and office locations, including monitoring room temperature, supply air temperature, outdoor air temperature, run-time hours, and more; •View incoming alerts via email on pre-configured notifications, such as important updates on the health of the system or simply if the inside temperature has gone above or below pre-set limits; •Monitor thermostat information, including system run times and current usage, for each thermostat at all locations; •View a pictorial display of the current weather and weather forecast for all thermostat locations; •Schedule holidays for up to 365 days of each year, including reoccurring unoccupied days so that the thermostat can be changed to "unoccupied" settings during those periods; •Prevent unauthorized use by auto-screen lock or set-point limiting; and •Send text messages from the mobile device to the thermostat display, such as reminders and notes.
