Sensibo: A new brain for you old aircon

Lawrence Chua once said,

“Now I know what development means: air conditioning. With air conditioning, we can have civilization, which exists only in temperate climates”.

 But what if that air conditioner doesn’t work very well or has lost its charm? 

Need not worry, presenting you the Sensibo! It is on a mission to make your ACs smart, & is compatible with any AC that works with a remote control. It is a device that you stick to your remote controlled air conditioner, and it connects it to the internet. It lets you control it with an app from anywhere in the world, and helps you save a significant amount of energy.

Basically, the Sensibo pod is composed of two parts: a mounting unit that attaches to the A/C surface, and the main pod unit. The main pod unit floats on a magnetic axis around the mounting unit. Now this pod is again equipped with two microprocessors, multiple infrared emitters, and sensors that allow it to gauge humidity, temperature, lighting, and whether a room is occupied.

The application involved is also named Sensibo, provides your old air conditioner with a brain. No matter, whether you’re at work, on your way home or anywhere else in the world - control of your A/C is at your fingertips. All you need is this intuitive app you can monitor and modify your settings immediately. It is capable of saving users an average of 40 percent in AC energy consumption, since it can automatically turn on and off at set times and regulate the temperature automatically.
