Wireless Programmable Thermostat–Eco-friendly and Convenient

by Rob on March 28, 2008


With this Venstar wireless thermostat, you can regulate the temperature from anywhere in your home. You simply replace your current thermostat with the Venstar receiver, and then control the temperature from the wireless thermostat. Like other programmable thermostats, the Venstar includes 7-day programmable functionality that can be set to 4 time periods per day and holiday mode. And you can use up to four thermostats with one receiver. Transmission is up to 500 feet. All I can say is that if my wife reads this post, she will definitely insist I install one of these in our home. She is always sending me downstairs to adjust the thermostat.

Here’s a list of its features:

* Completely wireless – receiver can be mounted at unit or at old thermostat location
* Up to 4 thermostats can be used with one receiver
* Transmits through walls and floors – range up to 500 feet in clear air
* Transmits at 418MHz using pulse code modulation – won’t interfere with other wireless systems
* Uses two AA lithium batteries
* 7 day programmable with 4 time periods per day and copy command
* Large, easy to read display with Thermaglow™ backlight
* 64 house codes allow installation of up to 64 systems within transmit range

Available from Amazon for under $300.
