Demand Management 101

Here are some steps to make sure your thermostat is set correctly:

Venstar Thermostat Wifi Setup

Select Menu & arrow down to Wi-Fi & then select Set-up.

The thermostat will start “Scanning for Networks”.

A list of available Wifi networks will be displayed. Please click on your wireless network. NOTE: If the bars are yellow, then the signal is poor and will be an issue

The Setup screen will be displayed with the SSID name and the security type filled in. Click on the Password space.

The Enter Password screen will be displayed. Enter the pass key being careful to enter any numbers, lower and upper case letters correctly. Once the password has been entered, click “Done”.

Then click “Next.

Click “Next” again.

It will take up to 30 seconds for the thermostat to connect to the Wifi network.

Once it has connected, it will display “Success; Connection to (network name) established”. Click on “OK”.

On the Wi-Fi screen Click “Local API Options”. The Local API needs to be turned “ON”

On main Menu the SkyPort must be Off, as well as the weather under Skyport settings

Be sure local schedules are turned off.

The SP 3000 Demand Management System directly communicates with your Venstar ColorTouch thermostat(s) to control the heating and air conditioning in your home. Please note that “Cool to 95 degrees” or “Heat to 35 degrees” being displayed is normal & how the On Peak demand control works.

Local API must be turned on, and Skyport must be turned off. Failure to do so can create a high demand charge on your electric bill.

Control Points

SP 3000 Demand Management System

Temperature Set Point Schedule (Heating and Cooling Mode)

Demand Control

Venstar ColorTouch Thermostat

Thermostat Mode (Auto, Heat, Cool)

Temporary Set Point Temperature Overrides

Override the Current Temperature

Observe the current set point temperature on the thermostat. This is the temperature that has been set according to the current SP 3000 schedule.

Using the front controls, press the red “Warmer” button to increase the temperature or press the blue “Cooler” button to decrease the desired temperature. The default range is +/- 20 degrees from the current set point (73 in the example below). Overrides greater than programmed will cause thermostats to go to last known setpoint after 5 minutes

The set point temperature will return to the scheduled value within the override timeout (3 hours by default).

To Change Thermostat Modes

On the Venstar ColorTouch UI, select the “MODE” Icon

When changing modes from the current mode, first select “OFF” and wait approximately 2 minutes.

Select the desired operational mode (Auto, Heat, Cool) Do not leave T-Stat on OFF Mode. This stops demand control.

Ensure the “Schedule” is set to “STOP” as this is managed by the SP 3000, not the Venstar ColorTouch Thermostat.

Page Break Temperature Set Point Schedule

Access the SP 3000 from your computers web browser. This requires you are on the same network as the SP 3000 (i.e. your home network).

Open a web browser. In the address bar, type “http://inergy” without quotes in the address bar. This will present the SP 3000 main status page.

Click the “Log In” button as shown on the display.

Access and manage schedules

Select “Schedule” from the navigation pane

Select the specific schedule to update from the “Device” dropdown list. This applies to both power relays and thermostats.

After the device is selected the scheduled events may be managed. Click “Add Event” to create a new event and add it to the list. “Edit Event” will allow the user to manage an existing event (i.e. change the time of day, change the temperature or applicable days of the week). “Del Event” removes an event from the list.

Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the process. Once all changes have been made, press “Submit”

Active schedules have both heating and cooling modes listed for proper system operation.
