Venstar’s Slimline family of thermostats includes very popular residential and commercial models.  Currently, millions of Slimline thermostats are in use throughout North America. Specialty Slimline models include:

  • Slimline Platinum, a commercial thermostat (Model T2900) with light activation that turns the thermostat on and off based on the level of light, helping facilities save energy and go green.
  • SchoolStat (Model T2900SCH), a commercial programmable specialty thermostat that helps schools go green while keeping classrooms comfortable.  SchoolStat is the thermostat designed to keep classrooms comfortable during the school day and save energy when school is out.
  • ComfortCall, an accessory that allows users to remotely adjust their Venstar Slimline residential thermostats from any telephone.  Using voice recognition and voice synthesis, ComfortCall literally talks to the user over the telephone and takes voice commands.
  • EZStat, the thermostat that is as easy to program as using an alarm clock. The EZStat also features oversized indicators on the display for easy reading.
