Sept. 30, 2013: Wi-Fi Thermostat with Occupancy Detection Simplifies HVAC Control

Commercial Thermostat Tailored to Restaurants, Retail Stores, and Other Small Businesses

September 30, 2013
RICHARDSON, Texas — EnTouch Controls, a leading provider of energy management systems (EMS) for small businesses and light commercial facilities, has announced its new EnTouch Pro, a commercial thermostat tailored to restaurants, retail stores, and other small business and facility owners.

With Wi-Fi networking and occupancy detection, the EnTouch Pro allows facility managers to adjust, monitor, and detect HVAC issues from any computer, tablet, or smartphone.

The EnTouch Pro works in commercial applications with or without Internet connectivity. When connected to the Internet, customers can remotely control the system and analyze data via the EnTouch Go cloud-based service. Through the EnTouch Go service, facility managers can monitor multiple facilities and have access to customizable reporting features and automatic alerting of energy and maintenance issues.

The thermostat has a touchscreen display for simple setup and usage. Featuring built-in security, the EnTouch Pro allows facility managers to limit heating and cooling set point adjustments by tenants and employees and works with motion sensors to detect occupancy and adjust settings for comfort and energy savings, said the company.

“Today’s small facility managers are incredibly busy and don’t have the time to learn and to manage their HVAC energy usage,” said Greg Fasullo, president and CEO of EnTouch Controls. “We’ve built simplicity into the EnTouch Pro so that even the busiest facility manager can easily control HVAC systems remotely, but also identify and troubleshoot hidden HVAC issues resulting in simplified operations and significant energy and cost savings.”

According to the company, the EnTouch Pro can provide HVAC energy savings of up to 25 percent.
