Hello thermostat manufacturers??? (PAH)

In searching for thermostats that suit a vision impared customer's needs, we've found darn few (Honeywell T87) and one on the internet that's digital, which is what she wants (http://www.dynamic-living.com/digital_thermostat.htm).

Why not a talking thermostat??? Our customer is losing her sight. In another year or two she will be blind. She has both radiant and baseboard heating. (Used to be all radiant, but one half failed - that was prior to our serving her PHVAC needs.)

Anyone care to beta test a talking stat will be welcomed with open arms and she'd be more than willing to be your test subject and provide testimonials.

  • Hey Dave

    Here is one that I have seen in action. Not sure about how easy they are to program though. I'm sure there are other ones out there too. I do a lot of training with a large P&H company here in RI that installs digital thermostats with his installs that start talking to the homeowner at various time frames to let them know that it would be a good idea to call them for a cleaning or tuneup. They work sweet!

    Braeburn is what you want. Their unit is sized to cover the sub-base of a T-87. It has a large display with only the room temp on it and it has the best back-lite in the business. One touch and the back light comes on. Most inturitve unit I have seen for programmables.

    Vision impaired...

    I don't know about digital, but I saw one that fit on a Honeywell sub-base, but had VERY large numbers on it, and you could feel it click as you turned it. The home owner knew how many clicks from the left would give her the desired temperature.
