Remote Access Delivers Unprecedented Control of Energy Usage


CHATSWORTH, Calif.Venstar® today announced that its Explorer® light-activated Wi-Fi® thermostats and Skyport® Cloud Services have helped Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company reduce its monthly energy costs by $12,000 annually. Headquartered in the City of Industry near Los Angeles, Utility Trailer is America’s oldest privately owned, family-operated trailer manufacturer.


“Venstar’s Explorer thermostats are light activated, so when the lights are on, so is the HVAC. When the lights are turned off, the HVAC goes back to unoccupied mode,” said Dan Morgan, facilities manager at Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company.


In addition to the cost-saving benefits of light activation, Morgan also remotely controls the Explorer thermostats using Venstar’s Skyport Cloud Services and free mobile app.


“Skyport enables me to remotely control our Explorer thermostats, which is especially useful when I am off-site,” Morgan said. “Having Skyport to remotely control my thermostats greatly improves my efficiency. It even lets me see what lights are on, indicating which areas are occupied.”
