Your AC just got an upgrade…
Summer hit us with a bang this year, a sweaty, humid bang. How it went from rain to 30+ degree heat and 90% humidity in just a few days we will never know. And, while we are not complaining (ok, we are totally complaining!) there is just one thing that we, and the rest of HK, just cannot live without. Two words – air conditioning. That being said, the struggle is oh-so real when trying to maintain the perfect temperature at all times. Those moments when you reach your apartment from the sauna outside and realise it’s just as bad inside are all too frequent! Why, oh why, can’t it turn itself on and be ready for us? Well we’ve got good news for you. Ambi Climate, a smart AC gadget that will keep you cool, calm and collected this summer is the perfect solution to your stuffy, steamy apartment woes.
Ambi Climate is a Hong Kong-based smart home startup that aims to bridge the gap between outdated appliances and modern technology. This nifty device hooks your AC up to the Internet and lets you access all your air conditioners via the smartphone app so you can control your AC when you’re out and about, ensuring that your apartment is nice and cool when you get back from a long day out. Ambi Climate also learns what you like and auto-adjusts your AC so that you’re not wasting energy overcooling your room. This means added savings on your monthly bill, perfect for summer months when our AC usage is maxed out. Ambi Climate is easy to set up — just plug it in and download the app. It maintains your room at an ideal temperature, conveniently allows you to control your air conditioning remotely and will even help you reduce wasted energy.
So what does Ambi Climate do?
- Turns on the AC before you arrive (through a handy smartphone app) so you can always head home to a perfectly pre-cooled apartment
- Keeps pets cool while you’re out, without wasting energy
- Allows you to sleep soundly through the night so you wake up feeling just right!
- Alllows you to view your AC consumption levels, see what temperatures you prefer, and understand how various factors affect your comfort
Ambi Climate’s environmental sensors mean it knows exactly what the weather is doing and how it affects your comfort. In a city with ever-changing weather, Ambi Climate’s powerful machine-learning algorithm ensures that the AC is only ever running at the minimum to keep you comfortable whilst reducing your AC’s environmental impact on the earth and helping you to prevent costly energy waste.
Going away? There’s a mode for that! Ambi Climate protects your home, furniture, and wardrobe from moisture when you’re at work or on holiday (that’s right, no more mouldy closets when returning from vacation!). Any Hong Konger who’s experienced AC struggles – yes, that is definitely an all-too-real struggle – will surely appreciate this intelligent addition to their home. Now where can we get ourselves some of these beauties?
