Venstar Highlights Surveyor Energy Management System With LCP5000 Load Control Panel at PRSM 2016

Also Displays ColorTouch and Voyager Connected Thermostats

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - April 25, 2016) - April 25, 2016 - Venstar® will feature its Surveyor® Energy Management System with LCP500 Load Control Panel, along with its ColorTouch® and Voyager® connected thermostats, at the PRSM National Conference being held April 25-27 in Long Beach. Venstar will be at booth Number 1620.

"Whether your business is a multi-location small-box retail chain with thousands of stores or a dozen locations, Venstar has an energy management solution that will enable you to remotely control all those locations from your mobile device," said Steve Dushane, president and CEO of Venstar Inc. "Venstar's award-winning Surveyor Energy Management System helps retail chains reduce energy costs by an average of 25 to 35 percent, while our ColorTouch and Voyager connected thermostats help smaller chains control energy costs."

Surveyor Remotely Manages HVAC, Lighting, Electrical and Mechanical Systems

Venstar's Surveyor EMS empowers small-box retailers and other multi-location businesses to remotely monitor, control and manage their HVAC and lighting/electrical and mechanical systems at all their stores using a desktop computer, laptop or mobile device, giving them unprecedented visibility into their energy usage. Designed specifically for small-box retail chains with hundreds to thousands of locations, Surveyor provides powerful energy management tools for energy and facility managers responsible for managing multi-location companies.

Venstar's Surveyor LCP500 Load Control Panel controls up to 10 independent lighting zones and allows a variety of control methods, including event driven, time scheduled, manual operation and Internet control. Users can choose one or a combination of the control methods to include multiple accessories that can be used to control the same lighting zone and allows for up to a two-hour override per zone. 

The LCP500 also supports daylight harvesting to significantly reduce energy costs and complies with California Title 24's requirements. The built-in lighting control system and networked sensors identify the levels of outside light coming in through windows and automatically adjust interior lights. Daylight harvesting delivers a significant decrease in the lighting needed, which greatly reduces energy costs. Small-box retail chains can expect to see significant savings when they incorporate daylight harvesting into their energy management plans.

Venstar's Surveyor has saved retail chain customers millions in energy costs at more than 24,000 locations across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Surveyor typically saves small-box retailers 25 to 35 percent of their energy costs, which translates to tens of millions of dollars in savings each year and dramatic reductions in CO2 emissions.

ColorTouch and Voyager Compliance Benefits

Select ColorTouch and Voyager residential and commercial thermostats comply with California Title 24's requirements, including Equipment Fault Detection Diagnostics (FDD). Another key feature available in these thermostats is Automated Demand Response (ADR), enabling users to participate in utility-generated load shedding events as well as allowing users to support the handling of specific signals from the utility provider.

Remote Control of ColorTouch and Voyager via Skyport Mobile App

ColorTouch and Voyager thermostats are compatible with Venstar's free Skyport Mobile App, which allows commercial users to use Venstar's free mobile app on their Android™, BlackBerry® and Apple® iOS mobile devices or directly from the Web to remotely access and control up to 100 commercial locations. From Skyport, users can access thermostats to change heat and cool setpoints, change thermostat modes, view equipment status (heating, cooling, off), control lockouts and much more.

Venstar's Application Programming Interface (API) also enables developers and hobby programmers to integrate the thermostats with most home automation systems.
