- What's Included
Get the proven flexibility and reliability of Venstar thermostats with the Slimline Commercial Platinum Series. The 7-Day Programmable Thermostat is compatible with up to 3-stage heat and 2-stage cool and can be used with gas/electric, electric, and hydronic heat as well as heat pumps. Up to 4 events per day can be set for 7 days a week making unique programming a breeze. A 6th and 7th output are also included for any 'extra' items the user would like to control from the thermostat. The Slimline Commercial Platinum Series from Venstar offers many other features as well, such as set point limiting, smart fan, and security locking. The backlit display and color coded keys make the thermostat easy to read in any lighting. The T2800 Thermostat can also be connected to an Outside Temperature Sensor to show outside temperatures. Note: The T2800 will not work with a remote sensor to average the temperature in the same room.
The T2800 Thermostat meets California commercial title-24. The Slimline Commercial Platinum Series also covers other commercial codes with features like Smart Fan that keep the fan on when the room is occupied.
Residential vs. Commercial Thermostats
Thermostats need to meet several building codes in order qualify to be used in commercial buildings. For example, in a commercial building, if a room is occupied the fan must be running. Venstar's Slimline Commercial Platinum Series of thermostats meet this and other commercial building codes.
Easy to Program
Programming the 1-Day Programmable Digital Thermostat is easy, thanks to a bright backlit display and button legends. If you're setting up multiple thermostats in your home to control the temperature in different zones, you can even program them using a Venstar EZ Thermostat Programmer (sold separately), which lets you quickly upload your settings to different rooms.
Automatic or Manual Temperature Adjusting
Just because you've set up your system doesn't mean you can't adjust the temperature manually when you're at home. For maximum ease of use, you can even use the Thermostat IR Control & Receiver, which lets you adjust the temperature from the comfort of your sofa using a wireless remote! Additional features include an auxiliary heat indicator and the option of adding an outdoor sensor.
If you currently have an INSTEON network in your home or are planning to upgrade to INSTEON, the Venstar Slimline Commercial Platinum Series of thermostats is compatible with the INSTEON Thermostat Adapter. This will give you the power to control your thermostat from anywhere in your home.
Please note: If you do not have a "common" wire running to your thermostat from your heating/cooling equipment, you may need either to run a new wire or to install a thermostat Add-A-Wire Accessory kit. The common wire is NOT required but it is recommended.

- reliable as the sun Review by quantumbitflip
reliable as the sun
I've had one of these in use at my home for several years. It just always works. I use with the Insteon module and control through a QW Home Automation Raspberry Pi setup. Never have to worry about batteries going dead or it losing its settings. A little tricky to program from the buttons... Best to manage via a control system.

we have 3 of these in the office. They are so hard to program, that the HVAC people have to come do it. At least every other month, we have to have them back because the program no longer works. Can't set to override, or holidays when not going to be in the office. Poor unit just doesn't know what to do.

I ordered these to replace 2 that had gone bad. The replacements do work, but their calibration is way off on temperature.

Review of 30456
Seems to work well, is fairly easy to program, I just really wish the lockout function required a PIN code or had the option to enter one. I use this in a tenant's unit and I just had to tell them how to unlock it. This is security through obscurity as they say, a pin code would allow me to relock it and they wouldn't have access again.
