Select models offer Wi-Fi inside for remote monitoring and control using the free Venstar Skyport™ Cloud Mobile App. Select models also include humidity control, which can utilize information from the new Wireless Wi-Fi Temperature Sensor. ColorTouch thermostats are compatible with virtually every type of commercial heating and air conditioning system. ColorTouch programmable Wi-Fi thermostats are compatible with the Amazon® Echo, giving users voice control over their thermostat functions including setting temperatures and turning on heat or air conditioning for one or multiple thermostats in their homes.


Venstar offers seven models of its low-cost Wi-Fi Explorer thermostat: three commercial, three residential, and one that is designed for school environments. Designed for ease of use, Explorer low-cost Wi-Fi thermostats feature large, easy-to-read displays with easy setup and controls. Explorer’s “Simple as You Want” operation gives users a choice of programming options. Select models also include the ability to control or monitor a second temperature sensor, control humidification/dehumidification, and include Energy Watch functionality. The commercial model also features a light sensor to determine occupancy and if the lights are left on.


Venstar’s Wireless Wi-Fi Temperature Sensor is compatible with ColorTouch and Explorer thermostats. It can be used as a remote sensor to control air temperature for a specific location or to average the air temperature across the entire location for a more comfortable, energy-efficient environment. When configured as a supply air sensor, it facilitates email alerts if equipment is not cooling or heating properly, enabling owners and/or contractors to quickly resolve issues.
