An Engaging Thermostat
The controls of the ColorTouch thermostat were thoughtfully laid out to make its use intuitive and engaging.
Heat and Cool Indicators give "at-aglance" information on heating and cooling, so you can easily see if the air conditioning or heating equipment is on.
Optional Outdoor Temperature Sensor - the ColorTouch thermostat can be wired with an outdoor sensor so that the outside temperature can be displayed right on the screen. You have the option to display the high and low temperatures for the day.
Digital picture frame
Install up to 100 photos and display them as a slideshow when the thermostat is in screen saver mode. If desired, any of these photos may also be selected as the background wallpaper for the thermostat.
With ColorTouch Assistant, you can customize your photos using the builtin editing features and can use the "preview" feature to see how the photo will look as background wallpaper once the thermostat info is placed over the photo.
Built-in nature & holiday themes
ColorTouch comes with more than a dozen built-in nature and holiday themes that can be used as background wallpaper for the thermostat.
Each built-in theme has a separate photo displaying a daytime and nighttime scene, along with showing the sun for the day and the moon for the night. The daytime scene appears from 7:00am until the nighttime scene appears with the moon at 7:00pm.
Holiday themes include Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Cinco de Mayo.
Security Set-up Heat and cool stages
With ColorTouch Security you have the ability to enforce temperature set point limits so that the system runs within set temperature parameters. Now no one can run the air conditioning too low or the heat too high.
Security settings also give you the option for automatic screen lock. This locks the screen minutes after it has been touched.
Unlocking the screen requires a pass code to enable access (eliminates kids or guests from changing the thermostat settings).
Easy access to Energy Usage Information lets you clearly see how much energy has been used to heat and cool for the past seven days.
Runtime graphs help you evaluate energy conservation options, giving you the opportunity to decrease energy costs.
View the heating or cooling runtimes separated by stages. Excessive runtimes indicate that it may be time for equipment maintenance.
Set Up Heat and Cool Stages
ColorTouch is compatible with most heating and air conditioning equipment and controls gas/electric or heat pump equipment, with up to 4 heating and 2 cooling stages. ColorTouch is also dual-fuel capable.
ColorTouch is able to intelligently control the equipment. This intelligence also displays the proper equipment status, in terms of heating and cooling stages turned on.
This screen allows you to configure the thermostat for proper equipment staging and equipment status on the display.
Time Period Programming
Time Period Programming has never been so fast and simple to implement on a thermostat.
Our intuitive "Time Period" Scheduler automatically changes the temperature and mode for up to four periods per day. This allows for comfortable temperatures for sleeping, waking, and daytime, plus an energy savings mode for when no one is home.
The screen above shows how easy it is to pick a day of the week to view the schedule.
Set the Service Alert to let the end user know when it is time to call for maintenance for a winter check-up or a spring cleaning.
Import/export settings from/to SD card
Easily choose what settings you want to import into your thermostat from an SD memory card including your Custom Photos, Dealer Info, Schedule, and Thermostat Name
Using the SD card you may save settings from an existing ColorTouch thermostat that can be exported to other thermostats (so you don't have to program each individual thermostat).
The SD card is prepared using the ColorTouch Assistant software application. (SD memory card, 64Mb minimum, not included)
