The Coastal Green Air programmable motion detected thermostat is a product that keeps on giving to the property owner when the property is occupied or unoccupied!
Our thermostat is a very smart and complicated thermostat behind the face because of all the features it has to offer. To the tenant the thermostat is very basic. As you can see it looks very simple and provides the tenant with very basic options for its use. As with most thermostats it has the settings of heat / auto / cool on the bottom left hand side with Fahrenheit / Celsius control on the bottom right. On the face of the thermostat there is a simple L E D screen accompanied by a down arrow button on the right, a fan button in the center and an up arrow button on the left. Again, very basic yet very smart.
The programming of the thermostat is ultimately left up to the property owner based on his / her aggressiveness in wanting to save wasted energy equating to saved money and the climate in which the property is located.

In our “typical” application the Coastal Green Air thermostat does three things. Keep in mind that all of the settings and hours I am going to mention in this demonstration can be changed or modified specifically to the owner and the properties need.
The first thing our thermostat does is manage the degree settings that can be used by the tenant. In our “typical” application upon entering the property the thermostat will detect motion as the guest enters the property and automatically sets the thermostat to 72 degrees. Once the tenant is in the unit the thermostat only gives the tenant the ability to manage the property between the degree settings of 70 degrees low and 76 degrees high. Our thermostat will show the degree settings lower than 70 degrees and higher than 76 degrees but the thermostat will not go to those lower and higher commands leaving the tenant believing they are using the thermostat like a normal situation. Once again, these parameters can be changed and set by the property owner. If the property owner is using the Coastal Green Air door / window monitors to manage the use of the AC / Heat while the doors are closed the property will get cold at 70 degrees if the tenant chooses to use the maximum cool setting and the property will get warm if the doors are close and the tenant chooses to use the maximum heat setting of 76 degrees.
The second thing our thermostat does is manage the occupancy of the property. Once the tenant leaves the property and there has been no motion detected by the motion detector built into the thermostat after 12 hours the thermostat will then go into what we call the unoccupied mode. Once in the unoccupied mode the thermostat will make sure the HVAC works in the most economical way by monitoring the temperature of the property managing the HVAC to monitor the degree settings of 65 degrees low and 78 degrees high. What does this mean? This means that after this 12 hour period of no motion and the thermostat goes in to the unoccupied mode the thermostat will manage the degree settings of 65 degrees and 78 degrees. Depending on the season and temperature if the property gets cooler than 65 degrees the heat will come on heat the property to 65 degrees. If the property gets hotter than 78 degrees the AC will come on and cool the property to 78 degrees.
The third thing our thermostat does is manage the unoccupied property after an additional 3 hours after reaching the check-out mode for a total of 15 hours. Once the property is in this check-out mode the thermostat will make sure the HVAC works the most economical way by monitoring the temperature of the property managing the temperatures of 60 degrees low and 80 degrees high. If the temperature in the property goes below the low set point of 60 degrees or higher than the high set point of 80 degrees the HVAC will respond according and heat or cool the property to the set point as we mentioned in the unoccupied mode.
In most cases your cleaning staff is the last person to leave your property prior to the next tenant’s arrival. The Coastal Green Air thermostat not only keeps tenants from misusing your HVAC but it also helps the most diligent housekeeping staff that might forget to leave the normal thermostat at a desired temperature when they leave your property.
Once the thermostat has reached the check out mode (in the scenario just mentioned this would be 15 hours) the thermostat will continue to work in the property owners best interest. After reaching the 15 hour check out mode the thermostat will turn on the fan every hour for two minutes to circulate the air in the property. This feature will keep any hot and cold spots from developing in the property minimizing the possibility of mold and mildew.
Again, all of the temperature and hour settings we just mentioned in this explanation of the thermostat can be modified to the specific need of each property as requested by the property owner.
We will be glad to assist each property owner in determining what parameters are best for their property to maximize tenant comfort and energy savings.
3 Stage Programmable Motion Detected Thermostat
- The thermostat can be programmed to limit the temperature control for the property. In the “typical” resort property application these parameters are 70° -76° meaning the tenant cannot make the thermostat go below 70° or above 76°.
- Unoccupied Mode – After the thermostat does not detect any motion after a predetermined time by the property owner the thermostat will automatically make sure the HVAC is turned off and then monitor the temperature in the property. In the “typical” resort property application this time period is 12 hours and the degrees that are monitored are 65° – 78°.
- Check Out Mode – After the thermostat does not detect any motion for an additional 3 hours past the unoccupied the thermostat will automatically make sure the HVAC is turned off. In the “typical” resort property application the thermostat will then monitor the temperature in the property of 60°-80°
- All of the times and degree settings mentioned above can be programmed to the specifications of each property owner / manager.
