Which are the best smart apps to control your air conditioner?
Control your home climate from your phone
There’s no doubt that technology constantly shapes our world. Today we don’t just use technology, we live technology. And we keep creating new tools to make our life easier in every possible way.
Smart devices such as smart TVs, smartphones, smartwatches and more have replaced traditional versions. We are connected to our smartphones so that they can connect us with other people or devices – including our air conditioners. That’s why the best cooling or heating solution might just be a smart app away from you.
Smart air conditioners have now become quite trendy, that is why many manufacturers and their associates put all of their efforts into creating top-of-the-line air conditioner apps.
Read on to discover which mobile app – available in your App store or Play store – is suitable for you and your lifestyle.
Tado Smart Air Con Control app
Launched in 2015, the Tado Smart Air Con Control was the world’s first device to make any remote-controlled air conditioner smart.
Created by a German tech company and preferred by many other European countries, Tado Smart Control has been slowly expanding around the world as it aims to save energy and bring more comfort into people’s lives and homes.
The system has a Wi-Fi connector placed close to the air con and a corresponding smartphone app with several great functions. The app allows you to monitor your home temperature even on the go, that is why distance is no longer an issue.
Setting independent multi-zone control, as well as scheduling different temperatures at different times of the day right from your phone are just some of the highlights.
In addition, the “geofencing” option will use your smartphone location in order to turn your air con off while you are away and cool down the house before you arrive. This optimised performance can lead to energy savings of up to 40%.

Air Touch control app

So what makes it different? Well, Ambi Climate claims to be the world’s first Artificial Intelligence enabled smart air conditioner controller, using sensors and live data to create a personalised comfort profile and optimally adjust your environment based on you. In this matter, the device takes everything into account: indoor conditions (temperature, humidity, occupancy and activity), as well as outdoor conditions (weather, sunlight, etc.). Ambi Climate then learns and remembers your preferences and can automatically turn on the air con as you’re heading home, all thanks to smartphone geolocation tracking.
Plus, with the help of its predictive climate control technology, you can save up to 30% on your energy bill. Get more insights about Ambi Climate here.
