VIP 3000: The New VIP 3000 is a universal multi-stage talking thermostat that can control most 24 Vac AC and Heating Systems including the newest multi-stage (up to 3 stages of heat and 2 stages of cooling) gas, oil and electric furnaces, air conditioners and heat pump / dual fuel systems with 1 or 2 stage compressors and auxiliary heat. Has enhanced speech functions and optional auto-changeover.



The VIP Series of "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.

In addition to the verbal instructions mentioned above, a CD with complete instructions to operate the VIP is included with each thermostat. These instructions are in MP3 and Wave file format and can be listened to using a CD player or computer. A text file is also included that can be listened to using your favorite text to speech software.

The VIP is a single zone battery powered thermostat that can be setup of 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".

The VIP also has built in freeze protection. In the event the indoor temperature drops to 40 degrees due to the thermostat being turned off or inoperative, your heating system will maintain 40 degrees in the residence.
