Venstar Announces New Ultra-Low-Power Wi-Fi Temperature Sensor for Remote Management of Air Temperatures
Venstar®, a leading thermostat and energy management systems supplier, has announced its new ultra-low-power Wi-Fi® Temperature Sensor Pro (ACC-TSENWIFIPRO). Compatible with Venstar’s ColorTouch®, Explorer® and Explorer Mini Wi-Fi connected thermostats, the new Wi-Fi sensor enables users to remotely measure indoor and outdoor air temperatures.
“Venstar’s new Ultra-Low-Power Pro sensor is a dual-powered device that improves the ease of monitoring and setting alarms based on the Supply Air temperatures. The sensor can be conveniently connected to 24vac at the equipment, so there is no need to run wires back to the thermostat. The included stainless duct temperature probe continually monitors the supply air. It’s that easy,” said Steve Dushane, president and CEO of Venstar.
Using four AA batteries, the Pro sensor’s battery life is expected to last longer than two years, assuming solid Wi-Fi connection.
