The Omnistat2 is a 7-day programmable communicating thermostat designed to precisely control the temperature and humidity within the home.

- Advanced digital technology allows the Omnistat2 to learn heating/cooling patterns of a home to maximize efficiency

- Fan cycle for air circulation
The Omnistat2 is able to communicate with HAI and most home control systems for coordination of energy savings with daily activities, such as “Home”, “Away”, or “Vacation”. It can be controlled from within the house or remotely through the telephone or Internet through HAI’s control systems and accessories. All Omnistat2 models meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency.
The Omnistat2 has three different color options, Black, Silver, and White, in order to match nearly any décor. Additionally, with over one hundred customizable backlight colors, you may change the backlighting from blue to red or any color in between by turning the knob.
