Venstar Wireless Remote Sensor ACC0414RF (Must be used with ACC0414REC Receiver)

Wireless Remote Room Sensor can be used to monitor indoor or outdoor temperature (with compatible thermostats). It has an override button for commercial thermostat flexibility during after-hour usage. The sensor location is not restricted by wiring constraints.

Compatible with the following models:
Totaline:  P374-1700, P374-1800, P374-1900, P374-2900
Venstar:  T1700, T1800, T1900,  T2900


THE WIRELESS REMOTE SENSOR SYSTEM IS MADE UP OF ONE RECEIVER AND AT LEAST ONE WIRELESS SENSOR.
-  Up to 8 Wireless Sensors may be used with 1 Receiver. (Unit ID #0 - 7)
-  The Receiver automatically averages all the temperatures it receives from any and all Wireless Sensors, up to 8 on the same House Code as the receiver, and reports the average to the thermostat.
-  The Receiver will only 'listen' to Wireless Sensors with the same House
Code as the Receiver, and will 'ignore' Sensors with different House Codes than the Receiver.
-  There can be up to 16 Remote Sensor Systems in each installation.
-  If more than 1 Wireless Sensor is used with 1 Receiver, then all Sensors and the Receiver must have the same House Code for proper operation.
-  If more than 1 Wireless Sensor is used with 1 Receiver, than each Sensor must have a different Unit ID.

SUGGESTIONS FOR USE OF ONE WIRELESS REMOTE SENSOR:
-  To report the Outdoor Temperature when using a compatible Residential thermostat. It is recommended to attach the Wireless Sensor to a North facing wall where it will not be in direct sunlight or the spray of sprinklers.
-  To report the temperature of a room, such as that of a Baby's room when using a compatible Residential thermostat.
-  To control to, or to read only, the temperature at the return duct when compatible Commercial thermostat.
-  To control the temperature in a space that is different from where the compatible Commercial thermostat is located.

SUGGESTION FOR USE OF MULTIPLE WIRELESS REMOTE SENSORS:
-  To control to an average of more than one Wireless Sensor in a large open space using a compatible Commercial thermostat. This type of application would include large, open office areas.

Dimensions: 4 5/8" X 2 3/4" X 7/8"

      Comments about Venstar Wireless Remote Sensor ACC0414RF:

      We provide heat for a second floor apartment by a separate boiler. We wanted to be able to have the heat controls in our apartment while having the heat sensor in the tenants quarters. I combined this with the Venstar T2900, the 2 wire kit (ACC0436), and the remote sensor receiver (ACC0414REC). The only draw back for us was the override button. I solved this by placing a small amount of insulating material between the electrical contact surfaces of the button and circuit board, disabling it. I am very pleased with the operation of this unit.

      Must wire to RS2

      By AggregatVier

      Pros

      • Convenient
      • Easy To Adjust

      Cons

      • Confusing Controls
      • Directions NO CLUES

      Best Uses

        Comments about Venstar Wireless Remote Sensor ACC0414RF:

        The Black/White/Red wire sequence would lead you to believe it should be connected to the RS1 terminal. Nope. Won't work there. The white wire has to be stretched up to the RS2 terminal on the T1800. There's nothing in the directions about this essential fact. Other than an obscure, throw away clue in the owner's manual, you're left to figure it out entirely on your own.

        However, that aside, it's a real convenience to get the outdoor temp just before you venture out. I may even buy one for the downstairs. Being in Southern California, not being able to measure below 32 degrees is not an issue. :)

          The installation was simple, but there are very few instructions on how the unit will actually operate with the main thermostat/control.

          OK, but some major limitations...

          • Easy To Install

          Cons

          • Unit failed within 1 week
          • Won't work below freezing

          Best Uses

          • Central Controls
          • Outside air temp

          Comments about Venstar Wireless Remote Sensor ACC0414RF:

          A major limitation of this system is that it will not measure temperatures below 32 degrees F. Also this unit (or it's wireless receiver, or both) failed within 1 week of use.
          Therefore cannot recommend for monitoring freeze protection, nor reliability.
