tado°, which specializes in intelligent home climate management, has launched the Smart AC Control V3+. With HomeKit-compatible hardware and a new app, it connects air conditioners and heat pumps to the home’s Wi-Fi replacing the infrared remote control.
The product is available starting today for approximately $117 from tado.com. The new app adds the Air Comfort Skill feature, which measures air freshness inside and outside of your home. It also provides tips and advice on how to improve your indoor air.
Those who wish to have full automation to manage their climate at home can subscribe to the Auto-Assist Skill for $49 per month or $32 annuallu. The Skill automatically adjusts your AC or heat pump when triggered by Geofencing or Open Window Detection, rather than sending you a notification.
Apple HomeKit users can now integrate the Smart AC Control V3+ into their setup. This means you can ask Siri to change temperatures and add air conditioning into your HomeKit Scenes and Automations.
