Dometic Launches CT Bluetooth Thermostat App

Fri Aug 4, 2017

149194279222265.jpgELKHART, Ind. – Dometic recently launched the new CT Bluetooth Thermostat App for iOS and Android to control the temperature of Dometic Single Zone Air Conditioners and the furnace in the RV.

The CTBT App can be used to monitor and control your CT Bluetooth Thermostat from a distance when you connect your device to the thermostat using a Bluetooth connection.

Not only does the CTBT App allow users to change the desired temperature on the thermostat remotely, but it can also turn the thermostat on or off as well as switch modes from cooling to heating and vice versa.

The CTBT App was released as part of Dometic’s continued innovation in connected products to make Mobile Living Easy. Dometic previously released a similar app for its CFX Portable Refrigerator/Freezer line.

The CFX App can be used from a distance as well, but uses a local WiFi Connection. The key benefits of using the CFX APP include:

• Control and monitor temperatures remotely.
• Turn on and off the CFX and/or individual compartments.
• Set your battery protection level and temperature alarm.
• Select temperature unit: Celsius or Fahrenheit.
• See what power source your CFX is running on: AC or DC. If running on DC, see what the supply voltage level is.
• Receive an alert if your CFX lid is open for longer than three minutes.

These Apps are a sure way to add convenience to the lives of people who already use Dometic Single Zone Air Conditioners and Furnaces or CFX Portable Refrigerators/Freezers.
