Control4® Unvails A New Wireless Thermostat

Jointly Developed With Aprilaire
February 23, 2015

Control4's new ZigBee-based thermostat built by Aprilaire was debuted at the ISE 2015 Show earlier in February. Control4 continues to offer its original ZigBee Wireless Thermostat, now giving users a choice.

The new Control4 Wireless Thermostat by Aprilaire was jointly developed with the climate control experts at Aprilaire to deliver a reliable and sophisticated thermostat that consistently delivers the right level of comfort in the most efficient way possible. With advanced presets and scheduling, the thermostat works with homeowners instead of forcing them to fit climate control into a rigid schedule entered via their on-screen interface. The new thermostat retails for $350 vs. $249 for the original wireless thermostat
