URC's Thermostat Offers 'Comfort Recovery'

July 23, 2012
URC's first network thermostat, the THZ-100 provides users the ability to control climate from anywhere within a home or business environment through integration with the manufacturer's Total Control system.
 
 
The THZ-100’s backlit two-inch color LCD is designed to be easy to read with background graphics and colors that automatically change to indicate visually whether the system is heating or cooling during transitions. 


While the THZ-100 offers five thermostat buttons, users can also enjoy two-way control of the thermostat via URC Total Control remotes, keypads, touchscreens, and third-party controllers like the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
 
Among its features, the THZ-100 offers Intelligent Comfort Recovery, which monitors the current environment and then slowly heats or cools accordingly, with dollar-saving efficiency, until it reaches the preset. Additional features include password protection for homes or businesses where access must be limited, and optional wired remote sensors to increase efficiency and accuracy of programmed temperature adjustments.
 
“With the THZ-100, users can control the temperature of a home or business simply by picking up a remote control,” said Doug Cole, senior vice president and general manager of URC. “The automation possibilities are endless; for example, our dealers can have the drapes automatically close when the air conditioner kicks in, to help cool the building more quickly and save energy. For the ability to set the climate from anywhere, look no further than the THZ-100 coupled with the Total Control system. It does everything but control the weather.”
 
The THZ-100’s backlit two-inch color LCD is designed to be easy to read with background graphics and colors that automatically change to indicate visually whether the system is heating or cooling during transitions.
                                  
The THZ-100 is programmable via the internet via the MRX-10 Advanced Network System Controller. Like all Total Control products, the THZ-100 is programmed using URC’s Accelerator software. A mounting template, bracket and screws are included.
 
The THZ-100 has an MSRP of $250, and is currently shipping.
 
Total Control sales tools available for custom integrators include a 95-second, benefits-focused video, a new consumer brochure, and a consumer-friendly website and slideshow at www.MyTotalControl.com
