Having a theater room is a great and fun addition to any home, but as many people experience, once you get all the electronics running and you settle in for your favorite movie, the room tempature drastically increases. It happens more often then not when people have a theater room that was not installed in a room already containing a thermostat of its own. The ideal solution is to have your installation tech instal a new thermostat in the room to control the tempature changes quickly all on its own, however this can be costly. Also most people who set up their own theater room are not even aware of this issue until it is too late.
A great solution we like to offer is installing a Control4 remote tempature sensor. A Remote Temperature Sensor allows the Thermostat to get its temperature readings from an area where the Thermostat is not physically located. Typically, the Thermostat will be located near the HVAC equipment with only the Remote Temperature Sensor on the wall in the living area. This creates a much cleaner install. In this case, the Thermostat settings would be controlled using any of the Control4 user interfaces. A Remote Temperature Sensor is also a good solution in a retrofit when a common wire is not available and power stealing is not an option. The Thermostat can be mounted in the mechanical room and wired directly to the HVAC equipment. The previously installed Thermostat wiring can then be used to connect the Thermostat to the Remote Temperature Sensor.
