It is extremely important to take care of our planet and live green with green devices in every aspect of life today. It is a great situation if you can save your money and, at the same time, save your planet as well. During the summer, almost every apartment in New York has an air conditioner turned on 24/7 to make life cooler than outside. That’s why CoolNYC, an energy-monitoring initiative from New York, and ThinkEco decided to help people from New York and make their life easier and healthier with one little application.
What you can do with the air conditioner mobile application?
CoolNYC and ThinkEco developed an application with what you can control your air conditioner via your smart phone or the Internet. Sounds incredible, right? The main reason this application was developed was to prevent air conditioners running all day which is quite normal for summer months. All you need to have is one smart plug which you can plug-in your air conditioner and with that you can control the amount of electricity that goes into your air conditioner. So, if you had to run somewhere and forgot to turn off your air conditioner, you can just activate this application. On the other hand, you can also turn your air conditioner on a few minutes before you arrive at home in the perfect temperature.
Furthermore, you can adjust the temperature of the air conditioner (AC) with an on-board thermostat so that when the apartment reaches a certain temperature it simply turns off. Likewise, when the temperature of the apartment rises, the AC will turn on again. You can also check the amount of energy your air conditioner uses and adjust the air conditioner to work with less energy but more efficiently. This little smart plug can cut your electricity bills and improve your air conditioner’s performance.
This application has already become a hit with around 7,000 customers all over the New York waiting in line to buy the device and save money. Interested users can purchase theirs at New York Best Buy for 70$.
