  • What's Included
  • The Venstar ColorTouch Thermostat is a multi-functional, simple-to-use, programmable touch screen thermostat with customizable display backgrounds. This thermostat is compatible with most heating and air conditioning equipment and controls gas/electric or heat pump equipment, with up to 4 heating and 2 cooling stages. It is also dual-fuel capable. ColorTouch is able to intelligently control your HVAC system and displays the proper equipment status, in terms of heating and cooling stages turned on.

    Simple as You Want Operation
    "Simple Stat" operation mode provides enlarged display numbers and fewer display items, making it perfect for the most basic users. "Simple as You Want" operation allows ColorTouch to be installed as a programmable or non-programmable thermostat. "Simple as You Want" operation also makes the thermostat easy to use. For example; it allows the user to remove the cooling references for homes without air conditioning.

    Scheduler
    Time Period Programming has never been so fast and simple to implement on a thermostat. The intuitive "Time Period" Scheduler automatically changes the temperature and mode for up to four periods per day. This allows for comfortable temperatures for sleeping, waking, and daytime, plus an energy savings mode for when no one is home. Customize every aspect of your "Time Period" Schedule with great flexibility.

    At-a-Glance Screen
    "At-a-Glance" screen shows the user heating and cooling status, as well as the room temperature. Heat and Cool indicators give "at-a-glance" information on heating and cooling, so users can easily see if air conditioning or heating equipment is on. An example of Heat and Cool indicators is on the left. The room temperature is 79 degrees and thermostat is cooling to 75 degrees. Room temperature is blue color to show the equipment is running. The ColorTouch thermostat can be wired with an Outdoor Sensor so that the outside temperature can be displayed right on the screen. The user has the option to display the high and low temperatures for the day.

    Nighttime Dimmer
    Nighttime dimmer for bedroom thermostats gives the user the ability to adjust the time the dimmer is on. Users can adjust the active brightness and the idle brightness with complete darkness being an option when dimmer is idle. When user touches the screen during nighttime dimmer operation, the screen's backlight temporarily returns to a useable brightness.

    Energy Usage Info
    Easy access to Energy Usage Information lets you easily see how much energy has been used to heat and cool for the past seven days. Runtime graphs help you evaluate energy conservation options, giving you the opportunity to decrease energy costs. View the heating or cooling runtimes separated by stages. Excessive runtimes indicate that it may be time for equipment maintenance.

    Security
    With ColorTouch Security you have the ability to enforce temperature set point limits so that the system runs within set temperature parameters. Now no one can run the air conditioning too low or the heat too high. Security settings also give you the option for automatic screen lock. This locks the screen minutes after it has been touched. Unlocking the screen requires a pass code to enable access (eliminates kids or guests from changing the thermostat settings).

    Daylight Savings
    Daylight Savings mode automatically adjusts ColorTouch clock when necessary.


    SD Card
    Easily choose what settings you want to import into your thermostat from an SD memory card including your Custom Photos, Dealer Info, Schedule, and Thermostat Name. Using the SD card you may save settings from an existing ColorTouch thermostat that can be exported to other thermostats (so you don't have to program each individual thermostat). The SD card is prepared using the ColorTouch Assistant software application.

    (SD memory card, 64Mb minimum, sold separately)

    Faceplates
    Customize the look of ColorTouch with faceplates to match your home decor. Options include white(supplied) - black, silver and wood grain each sold separately.

    Languages
    ColorTouch is multilingual (English, Spanish and French).

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Thermostat firmware version 1.11 and below requires 2GB or larger SD cards for upgrading.

    I bought this for a vacation home. I can remotely control with the wifi option. I can look at heat cool run times on a daily, weekly , and monthly basis. I added the exterior temp sensor so I can look at the exterior temp. I also use the exterior temp sensor to set the changeover to gas from the heat pump. I have a dual fuel heat pump with 2 stages of LP backup. This is the only stat I could fine that would control my system and give me remote access. I set temp limits and the stat emails me if a limit is exceeded. Toooo many features to cover here. I love this thermostat!!

    this thermostat is awesome. Touch Screen. Adjustable fan run settings. Screen savers. Better than the nest in a lot of ways. I am glad I got this but only wish I hadn't waited so long.

    While this unit has some nice features, overall I'm very disappointed because of one deal-breaking flaw. At this time of year, spring in Illinois, we need the furnace on some days and air conditioning on others. We shut the furnace off by pressing the MODE button on the touch screen and changing it to OFF; same procedure for air conditioning. However, when we want to turn the heat on again we have to go into the menu, select SCHEDULE and turn the schedule back on; if we simply turn the heat back on with the MODE button we get the factory default schedule, which is completely wrong for our needs. Also, the homeowner schedule must be either heat or air conditioning; the T5800 can't remember both. There needs to be a way for both heat and AC schedules to be saved and be able to switch without total reprogramming, or switching SD cards, which was suggested by Venstar support. My wife didn't want me to get this thermostat because she thought it would be too complicated. I told her that all she had to do was use the MODE button but after using the unit for a while that was proven to be incorrect. We used to have a White Rogers programmable from the mid 1980s and although it had its faults it was easy to use. When you turned the heat or cooling on it was automatically on either schedule that I had preset. It remembered both the heat and cooling schedules and switched seamlessly between the two. This would seem to be a simple programming fix, but after emailing and talking on the phone with Venstar a year ago they are unwilling or unable to fix this. I don't think I'd buy another of their products.
