Title: THERMOSTAT WITH MULTIPLE SENSING SYSTEMS INTEGRATED THEREIN
Abstract:
A thermostat may include a proximity sensor and a temperature sensor on a sensor mount assembly with a first alignment feature. A lens assembly may have a first area, a second area, and a second alignment feature, where the second area includes a Fresnel lens, and the first area is thinner than the second area. The thermostat may also include a frame member with third and fourth alignment features configured for respective matable alignment with the first and second alignment features and configured such that the proximity sensor and the temperature sensor are maintained in generally close, non-touching proximity to the lens assembly, the first area of the lens assembly being aligned with the proximity sensor, and the second area of the lens assembly being aligned with the temperature sensor.
