Users can customize their photos with Color Display Desktop App’s built-in editing features, including zoom, rotate, color, and brightness adjustment, or reset to put the photo back to its original format. Using the “preview” feature, users can see how the photo will look as background wallpaper once the thermostat info is placed over the photo. Preview allows them to make sure their photo selections are acceptable before uploading them to the thermostat.
Johnson Controls distributors may use this application to import their logo and contact information to the Color Display Thermostat. Each time Color Display Desktop App opens it checks with the Johnson Controls website for any application updates and the latest thermostat firmware.
The Color Display Desktop App software has five main menu items that make programming the Color Display Thermostat fast and easy, including:
Picture Gallery – easily find and upload photos. Editing tools allow for photo placement, color and brightness adjustments.
Automatic Updates to the Color Display Thermostat’s Software and Firmware – The Color Display Desktop App application automatically connects to the Johnson Controls Thermostats web site and updates the Color Display Desktop App and thermostat firmware to the latest revisions at no charge. Color Display Assistant then updates the firmware to the SD memory card (not included) to be uploaded to the thermostat. Updating the firmware ensures that the most current system software, including new features and performance enhancements, are available.
