Prevent accidental setting changes to your Sensi thermostat
Are you a parent of a child who loves to play with anything that has buttons? Like the television, the remote control, or your thermostat?
Do you own a business and are frustrated with employees and customers constantly fiddling with the temperature settings?
Perhaps you’re a property manager or realtor who wants to make sure those visitors can’t tinker with the thermostat so you keep the energy costs low when the property is vacant or the house is empty.
Now, Sensi™ Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat gives you even greater control of your home, business, or property comfort with the new Keypad lockout feature. Keypad lockout offers an easy and convenient way to prevent accidental setting changes to your Wi-Fi thermostat. Lock the buttons on the thermostat but maintain full control from your Sensi mobile app.
