Does Entouch Make The Best Communicating Thermostat ?

With the 2013 ControlTrends Awards Nomination Process in full swing, Entouch Controls offers a lot of power in a small package. Entouch’s James Walton, who is on the ballot for 2013 Best Technical support person, breaks down Entouch’s approach to creating “perfect” thermostat experience. With the ability to monitor electrical inputs, compare loads with equipment and see all this data on a cloud based dashboard, Entouch is much more than a thermostat. Please note that Entouch has rolled out new additions to their product line since the filming of this video. Click here to get a nomination ballot.
