New tech is not only about leashing to our every whim all of our household devices. It’s all about defending us from ourselves, sometimes.
We all left the house for an afternoon or even a weekend getaway in the heat of summer, only to come back and find out that we left the air conditioner on. Not clever. And it’s time to step in with a patch when your errors really start costing you cash.
The ultimate system for managing your air conditioner and heat pump and making it smart is Sensibo. You will be able to monitor, track, automate and save energy with Sensibo. Monitor multiple devices in one app and share your devices with your family at home and office colleagues.
Once you pair your unit with the Sensibo app, you can use your phone to basically do everything your unit remote can do — and actually, a lot more as well. You can not only turn your AC on or off via the web, you can also set a variety of automatic actions to keep your house at optimal coolness when you’re there, monitor when you’re not and even prepare for your return.
The Sensibo SKY allows the temperature and humidity to be remotely controlled and kicks in on its own to restore the conditions you want with the Climate Respond feature. It also includes geo-fencing, which uses the geo-location of your phone to turn off your AC automatically when your phone leaves the building, then turn it all back on when the phone gets home. You can also set up a 7-day schedule so that at the times you set every day, your AC goes on and off.
Even when you are home, Sensibo SKY also makes your unit controllable via Sensibo Alexa Commands.
