The Sensi Touch 2 comes with some energy-saving features, including the auxiliary heat lockout, which allows the heat pump to operate on its own without the backup heat if it can handle the heating load. There is also a balance point feature, which locks out the heat pump when the heat pump is less efficient than the auxiliary heat.
You can also connect the Touch 2 to Sensi room sensors (RS01-SG), which pull temperature data from specific points throughout the home.
The Sensi Touch 2 design is also sleek and lightweight and provides an improved user experience. You can also add contractor contact information to the thermostat so that customers can easily contact you whenever they need help; this feature is part of Sensi’s contractor branding initiatives. The thermostat comes with two accessory terminals (ACC+ and ACC-), which allow you to connect supplementary equipment, like dehumidifiers, to be controlled by the smart thermostat.
When Bert replaces the thermostat, he pays attention to the wire colors and terminals, though you can apply labels to the wires to help you install them correctly on the new thermostat. The Sensi Touch 2 comes with a leveling bubble, which allows you to mount the thermostat perfectly level on the wall. After reconnecting the wires to the new thermostat, use an insulating material to cover the hole in the wall, as the temperature conditions inside the wall will affect thermostat readings. Once the thermostat has been powered on, you can configure the settings on the screen.
Occupants can easily adjust the temperature with simple plus and minus signs on the large display screen. They can also easily access operating modes and fan settings, allowing them to manage their comfort and HVAC system without hassle.
