New “Commercial ColorTouch TV” Video Series Helps Businesses Easily Program and Customize Their Commercial ColorTouch Wi-Fi Thermostats.

Venstar Inc., in conjunction with 981 Media, today launched the sixth video in its Commercial ColorTouch TV video series. Available online now, the sixth video is titled, “Setting Up Security.” The new series includes detailed “how-to” videos designed to help business facility managers easily program, customize and make the most of their Commercial ColorTouch Wi-Fi Thermostats.

In this episode, Commercial ColorTouch TV host Arloa Reston shows facility managers how to program the security features in their Commercial ColorTouch thermostats, including how to set up the automatic screen lock as well as temperature limits.

The video shows how to use the automatic screen lock, securing the ColorTouch from unauthorized use by allowing access only with a manager-programmed security code. Users also learn how to enforce temperature limits so that unauthorized users are not able to run the air conditioning too low or the heating too high. Finally, users are also shown how to give temporary users, such as their employees, access to features such as mode change or short-term override without giving them access to the other features of the ColorTouch.

In addition, with the upcoming release of firmware version 3.0, users will soon be able to set up and adjust these settings via the Internet with their Venstar Skyport™ accounts.

"Setting up the security features on the Commercial ColorTouch Thermostat is easy and allows users to secure their thermostats from unauthorized use while still allowing maximum comfort and energy savings," said Austin Brooks, the creative director at 981 Media. “Showing business owners and managers how easy it is to program their Commercial ColorTouch thermostats helps them quickly understand and effectively use the thermostat features. Running a business is always a big job; with these videos, we make things a little bit easier.”

With more than 3 billion hours of videos watched each month on YouTube alone, the demand for video is increasingly becoming an essential part of online marketing and education.
