Residential and commercial programmable thermostat ColorTouch®’s firmware has been updated. Firmware version 3.08 features one-touch home and away buttons; a shortcut to run or stop the time period program; and built-in application programming interface (API), which enables third-party interface and development. The supply air alert feature sends email alerts when HVAC air exceeds thresholds. The updated graphics improve programming and control of the thermostat. Outdoor temps show on the thermostat via the Internet, if there’s no outside sensor. The 3.08 firmware update is now factory-standard in new ColorTouch residential and commercial thermostats. Previous models can be updated via Wi-Fi at the thermostat or through the manufacturer’s mobile app with Skyport™ cloud services. Every time an update for the thermostat is available, a notification will appear on its screen along with simple prompts to help the user make the update.
