Sensibo Air review: Make your air conditioner smarter and more efficient


The new Sensibo Air smart air-conditioner controller is a major advance over Sensibo's earlier and very good Sensibo Sky product. The improvement is achieved in large measure by including a secondary sensor (called the Room Sensor) that augments the temperature and humidity sensors in the main unit. The Room Sensor, however, can also detect motion (more on that later). In addition to targeting the specific space you're occupying in the room, the combination of the Sensibo Air and the Sensibo Room Sensor will save energy by turning your self-contained air conditioner off when you're not in the room. After using the new product for several weeks, I can see that Sensibo has learned a great deal following the release of the Sensibo Sky.

Make your dumb air conditioner smart with this top-rated controller


While the boom in smart home devices is pretty awesome, we don't all have the cash to upgrade every household appliance just so we can control them virtually. Fortunately, this is where internet-enabled controllers like the Sensibo Sky come to the rescue. There's no better invention than the modern air conditioning unit, and the Sensibo Sky makes it even better. This tiny WiFi-enabled accessory transforms your run-of-the-mill dumb air conditioner into a smart, automated system that saves money and energy throughout the summer. It works by connecting to your home's WiFi router and intercepting your air conditioner's infrared remote control system.

Sensibo Sky A/C controller review: Control your room air conditioner from anywhere


The Sensibo Sky can make any air conditioner equipped with an infrared remote control just a little smarter. Smart thermostats are great if you have a central HVAC system, or if you live in a temperate climate where you need only a furnace for the winter. But unlike the Sky, none of those can control the room air conditioner in your window or the ventless model on your wall. The Sky connects to your router, and the Sensibo app installed on your smartphone replaces the dedicated remote that came with your unit. This allows you to establish schedules when you want the A/C on and off, or you can control the air conditioner from anywhere you have internet access.

Your smart home just got a little smarter with this AC controller


Trying to sleep during a heat wave is nearly impossible without an air conditioner. But while taking full advantage of your AC may be the most comfortable way to get through the summer, it's by no means efficient. Not only is your excessive AC use bad for the environment, but it's also expensive. That's where Sensibo's Smart AC Controller comes in. This little gadget is designed to make your air conditioner as efficient and cost-effective as possible without compromising your comfort.
