Scheduler Keeps Temperatures Comfortable, Reduces Energy Use
The ColorTouch commercial programmable scheduler keeps occupied periods comfortable while reducing energy use for unoccupied periods. An intuitive "Time Period" Scheduler automatically changes the temperature and mode for up to three periods per day, allowing for comfortable temperatures when the business is occupied, plus an energy savings mode for unoccupied periods. Features include:
•Choice of up to three occupied periods that nest inside of the unoccupied schedule. Any days/times that are not in the occupied periods automatically go into energy savings mode. •User-specified modes, set points, start/stop times, and enable/disable for three occupied periods, such as regular store hours, shelf stocking, and cleaning periods. •"Schedule Override," which allows users to extend occupied settings for up to four 30-minute periods. •Preoccupancy purge feature, which precedes the first occupied period of the day. This allows the fan to be turned on in programmable 15-minute increments (up to three hours) before the room is occupied to freshen the air before people arrive. •A 365-day calendar that facilitates programming for every day of the year, allowing for closed periods, such as vacations and holidays. Major holidays are already pre-programmed and are implemented with a simple check box. Users may also add as many unique holiday entries as needed for up to 10 years in advance.
Show Logos, Ads and Promotions on the ColorTouch Screen
HVAC contractors can set up the ColorTouch to show their clients' logos, ads and promotions on the screen. Importing graphical files into the ColorTouch commercial thermostat is simple using ColorTouch Assistant software. ColorTouch Assistant software has five main menu items that make programming the ColorTouch commercial thermostat fast and easy for users, including:
•Picture Gallery -- users can easily upload their own graphics, including logos, ads, photos, etc. Editing tools allow for photo placement, color and brightness adjustments. Up to 100 files may be used as a slideshow. Digital and analog clocks come standard and can be used as part of the slideshow. •Service Information -- allows contractors to provide service contact information and their logos. •Schedule -- users can see an "overview" of the time period schedule for heating and cooling and can edit the schedule from any Mac or PC computer running ColorTouch Assistant. The user can also view and change the schedule directly from the thermostat. •Thermostat Settings -- users can adjust preferences, alerts, daylight savings, clock, vacation, security, and overall system settings using ColorTouch Assistant or directly at the thermostat. •Updates to ColorTouch Software and Firmware (the operating system and feature set).
Secure Locking Thermostat and Remote Temperature Sensor
Security features include:
•An automatic screen lock, which can lock the screen minutes after it has been touched and requires a pass code to enable access (eliminates unauthorized users from changing thermostat settings). •Temperature set-point limits, allowing the user to run the system within set temperature parameters so that no one can run the air conditioning too low or the heat too high. •Remote temperature sensing, which allows the thermostat to be put in another room, such as a back office, so that it is away from public access.
