The VIP Series "talking thermostats" combine the latest technology to promote independent living with its verbal setup instructions and verbal announcements of the day, time, room temperature and temperature setting. The VIP is truly a "talking thermostat" that was designed to provide a comfort solution, and energy management for senior citizens and persons who are blind, visually impaired or disabled.
The VIP is a single zone battery powered thermostat that can be setup for either programmable (night setback) or non-programmable (manual) operation depending on the application. In the programmable mode, the VIP functions as a setback thermostat with 5+2 programming. Five plus two programming means that Monday through Friday, there are four separate programs per 24-hour period, wake, day, evening and sleep. Four different programs can be entered to suit your weekend schedule. In the non-programmable mode, all automatic setback functions are disabled and the VIP functions as a manual "talking thermostat".
