Free Smart Kit to Remotely Control Your Room Air Conditioner
The smartAC kit brings intelligence to your plug-in air conditioners. With the ability to set a customized schedule to automatically turn your unit on and off and remotely set your desired room temperature, this modern technology offers you convenience and will allow you to save energy.
How does it work?
The smartAC kit connects to your home's Wi-Fi. The software and Smartphone app that comes with the unit allows you to turn your unit on and off, or change the temperature from anywhere. The built-in thermostat also senses the room's temperature and operates the unit to maintain the temperature you program.
What does this have to do with demand?
With electricity system consumption peaking in the summer, this device allows us to manage room air conditioning loads, thereby reducing the summertime peak, the stress on the electricity system and the cost everyone pays for electricity. Typically, we come close to peak load about 4 or 5 times a year for about 3 to 4 hours. When this happens, we would notify you and, if necessary, could manually raise your air conditioner temperature setting by a few degrees to reduce the overall peak load. You would be able to manually override this higher setting.
Just for you.
