New York, March 22: This summer, get ready for a smart air conditioner that can be operated remotely with a mobile app.
You can turn it on as you are near home from a tiring day at office or start it automatically based on your phone’s GPS.
The wi-fi-enabled window AC called Aros is the brainchild of New York-based startup Quirky and General Electric and is armed with on-board temperature and humidity sensors.
The unit is able to detect when you are in and out of the home and adjust the temperature accordingly.
The AC also creates a cooling schedule for you based on your usage habits after a couple of weeks.
What is more, the Aros connects to an accompanying smart phone application to manage the running cost to help you save money.
Download Wink app for iOS and Android smart phones and control Aros from anywhere.
If you forget to shut off the system while away, Aros automatically turns on and off based on your smart phone’s GPS settings.
