Smartphone-Controlled Air Coolers

The KUHL Wireless Air Conditioner Can Chill Hot Rooms from

— June 11, 2012 — Lifestyle
Adjusting the temperature of your home on a super hot-and-sticky summer day is a snap thanks to the Kühl wireless air conditioner.

The air cooler lets you adjust the amount of heat-busting air that pumps out of the machine by using an iPhone or computer which is synced to the device.

The 'residential system' incorporated into the device allows for setting a schedule for the machine so that it will turn on and off remotely; saving energy while you are away and ensuring your pad is chill when you get home. This is a great tool for the forgetful type that wants to keep their unit turned off while they are out of the house but continuously forgets to do it until they are already long out the door.

It is also a dream for anyone who is trying to hibernate from the heat as they only have to move their fingers and within a few short clicks they will be sweat-free.
Trend Themes
1. Smart Home Cooling - The Kühl wireless air conditioner is a prime example of the growing trend of smart home cooling, opening up opportunities for further innovation in this field.
2. Iot-enabled Appliances - As the Kühl air cooler demonstrates, appliances with IoT-enabled controls are becoming more popular, creating opportunities for innovations in appliances across many industries.
3. Energy-saving Devices - The ability for the Kühl air conditioner to remotely turn on and off allows for energy-saving features, and presents opportunities for further eco-friendly innovations in the home and building industry.

3. Building Management - The building management industry can benefit from the energy-saving features of smart home cooling systems, such as the Kühl air conditioner, to optimize the efficiency of larger cooling systems in commercial buildings.
