Use a Programmable, Digital Thermostat for Your Portable Heater!

December 5, 2011 Leave a comment

LuxPro PSP300 5+2 Programmable Plug-In Thermostat
It’s certainly nice to have the extra cooling power of a window air conditioner, or the warmth of a portable heater, but typically these lack thermostatic controls. Here’s the solution: just plug the portable unit into this programmable thermostat and enjoy the benefits of 5/2 weekday/weekend programming and regulated room temperature. Programming is simple, and can be performed with the thermostat in your hand, not plugged into the wall. Enter up to four separate time and temperature programs per day for heating and for cooling, with one set for weekdays and a different set for weekends. There are two G13A button cell batteries (included) to maintain programming and clock settings when unplugged or during power failures, and the display will show “LO BATT” when these need replacement.

Advanced features allow you to calibrate this thermostat so it agrees with another thermometer in the room. You may also adjust the variation in temperature allowed before turning on your heater of air conditioner. And you can set it to display in either degrees F or C. Read more

Solar Powered LED Light Turns On Automatically When Motion is Detected

Smarthome Solar LED Motion Light

 

How many times have you walked outside your home and wished you had an extra light in a specific area? Maybe outside the garage, over the garbage cans, or by a shed or storage unit? The Smarthome Solar LED Motion Light is a perfect, inexpensive solution to this problem – no need to hire an electrician, no wires to run, and installation is a snap!

The Smarthome Solar LED Motion Light focuses 28 bright white LEDs that are powered by the sun to deliver the perfect amount of light exactly where you need it. Since it is solar, there are no electrical bills to pay and since the unit is triggered by a motion sensor, the light can work up to 3 days on a single 8-hour charge.

 

What Makes This Product Different from Similar Solar Lights?

  • 28 Super Bright White LEDs

-the unit itself is small, but it packs a big punch! The 28 super bright LEDs shine a strong beam of light since they are white and the light casing is clear and unobstructed.

  • Cast Aluminum Construction

-most solar lights are made of plastic. Over time, plastic gets beaten up by adverse weather conditions. The Smarthome Solar LED Motion Light is made of cast aluminum so it’s stronger and lasts longer.

  • Back in Black

-after years of testing, we’ve determined that, depending on your climate and weather conditions, white plastic (of which most solar lights are made), can change in color over time. This yellowing effect doesn’t change the functionality of lights, but can make them an eye-sore. No one wants to have eye-sores on their home, so this product features a basic, black aluminum finish.

Upgrade your HVAC system with this programmable digital thermostat

LuxPro PSP511-L 5+2 Programmable Thermostat
Its large LCD display is easily read, even at night with its backlight. Comes pre-programmed with the Energy Star recommended heating and cooling times and temperatures, or enter up to four separate time and temperature programs per day for heating and for cooling, with one set for weekdays and a different set for weekends. Programming is simplified by the LUX SpeedDial®. Pre-programmed 5-minute compressor protection prevents damage from cycling the compressor too quickly. Program the filter change interval to the number of days recommended by your system’s manufacturer. When the system reaches the set number of days, an icon appears on the screen to remind you that it’s time to clean or replace your filter. Two AA batteries either supply operating power or are backup power to maintain settings during power failures.

Advanced features allow you to calibrate this thermostat so it agrees with another thermometer in the room. You may also adjust the variation in temperature allowed before turning on your heater of air conditioner. And you can set it to display in either degrees F or C and either 12- or 24-hour time format. You may program the thermostat to not allow any inputs from the keypad without a password, or you may choose inputs limited to only the “up” and “down” arrow keys, which can change the temperature setting only within a range you program. Works with 24VAC gas, oil, or electric heating and air conditioning systems; single-stage heat pumps; and 2-wire hydronic systems. Read more

This clock simply couldn’t be easier to use. All you have to do is insert an AA battery (sold separately) and press your corresponding time zone button, that’s it! The clock receives radio communication from Fort Collins, Colorado, where the exact time signal is continuously broadcast throughout the United States. Time is precisely measured by the Atomic Clock of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, Time and Frequency Division in Boulder, Colorado, where a team of atomic physicists continually measures time to an accuracy of ten billionths of a second per day. The clock will recognize PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time and ET-Eastern Time, and automatically adjust for daylight savings.
