You are going to need a decent air conditioner unless you live in an area that does not get hot summers. There are plenty of cheap air conditioners around, but not too many of them are iPhone-compatible. If you need one that is, you may want to check these products out:
Quirky + GE Aros Smart Window Air Conditioner: this is an interesting option if you are looking for a new air conditioner. This smart air conditioner learns from your patterns to cool you when you need it. It tracks your energy consumption too.
tado Cooling: an innovative solution that makes regular air conditioners compatible with the iPhone. It is a smart unit that connects to your exiting air conditioner and lets you control it from your phone. It can turn your AC off when you are away or pre-cool your home before you get back.
FriedrichLink: so you don’t want tado and don’t trust Aros? Your best bet is to pick up an air conditioner that has add-ons to make it iPhone compatible. The Kühl Wi-Fi Adapter is such a solution.
We are going to see even more Android and iOS compatible air conditioners and heaters in the future. Not all of them will be reliable, so you will still have to do your due diligence to find the best one for your needs.
