Would you like to control your air conditioning via your smartphone?

Smart air conditioners use internet and Wi-Fi technology to give you complete control of the air conditioning in your home with a touch of your smartphone. Because they work via the internet, you can communicate with your air conditioning whether you’re inside your home or outside – even if you’re in another country.

Smart air conditioners are currently the hottest trend in air conditioning, giving homeowners unrivalled comfort and convenience, combined with ease and precision of use.

What is smart air conditioning?

Any air conditioner which is connected to the internet and is controllable via your smartphone qualifies as a smart air conditioner. Smart air conditioners boast many cutting-edge features such as voice activation, the ability to be controlled from anywhere, intelligent scheduling and location-based control. Along with convenience, their biggest advantage is their energy-saving potential.

Elon Musk has spoken of his vision of air conditioning which should “predict when you are going to be home and cool the rooms you are likely to use.” The features offered by the top air conditioning companies mean that Musk’s vision may become a reality sooner than we think.

What are the benefits of smart air conditioning?

Let’s consider some of the benefits of smart air conditioning:

Convenience

With smart air conditioning, you can control your air conditioning from the comfort of your sofa.

When you’re away from home, you can turn on the unit before you return. If you forget to turn the air conditioning off after you’ve left home, you can turn it off without having to return home.

You can set a regular schedule to tailor your air conditioning to your lifestyle, and should your schedule change, you can override it at a moment’s notice via your smartphone.

Smart home connectivity

If you have other smart devices in your home, such as automatic lights or window blinds, you can control all these devices together to have complete control over the temperature and light levels of your home.

For example, if the day is hot and sunny, you can program your air conditioner to turn on, your blinds to close and your lights to dim.

Precise control

Smart air conditioning offers you the most comprehensive and precise temperature control to maximise efficiency.

You can designate different zones and set different programmes for each. This allows you to focus your air conditioning system where it’s required and leave any other less important areas on a reduced setting.

Savings on energy bills

Smart air conditioning can be programmed to ensure that it’s not used where it’s not needed, giving you major savings on your energy bills.

You can set temperature limits and hours of use for each zone to prevent overuse. Your system can give you access to your historical usage data which you can analyse to make further optimisations to your usage.

Some systems have built-in motion sensors which can be programmed to automatically power down the air conditioning if no one is in the room. If a door or window is left open, the air conditioning can be set to automatically reduce its power.
