A secure Room Thermostat


I need to replace our room thermostat with one that is tamper proof and preferably password protected. Is there such a thing as this?
People at my place keep removing the cover and rotating the spindle by hand to bypass the stop on the dial's rim. Thanks.

Try sti-usa.com

They make a wide range of locking covers just for that purpose.

As Sammy said you could go with a lock box, don't know of a t-stat that is password protected, there are several options. You could install a new t-stat with a remote sensor then you could move the t-stat anywhere you want. You could try an accustat, they work off of sensors that are set for a spec. temp. Or you could just fire they guy that keeps messing with it then leave the stat where it is

There are many password protected thermostats, any HVAC supply house stocks them. The ones I see most frequently in my are area are from White Rogers.

Use a tat with a remote sensor. And lock the stat in your office, or the mech room.

Even easier, is to just purchase one that is set at a preset temp, so that there is not messing around. If the workers are removing the cover, time to rewrite the employ handbook, or talk to HR that this is something that needs to be discussed. Falls under the same rules as destruction of company property or Vandalism of same. You touch, you walk.

They had a locking one at a convenient store I worked at ages ago
The store was always cold & the cashiers would sit on the radiator to keep warm. I only worked there now & then when they needed extra help - I was an Asst Mgr at another store
Winter came & it was freezing

So I grabbed blue ice & put it around the thermostat
One of the Reg employees came in & was amazed it was warm!!
"They finally fixed the heat!!"
Nope, I pointed to the blue ice
After that the blue ice stayed all winter & was changed out as needed
