Sensibo : A smart controller for your not so smart AC
In the recent past, we have seen a lot of improvements in smart home devices. That being said, we do not have all the money to revamp each household appliance so we can virtually control it. I agree that it would be nice to have that. However, this is where smart controllers like Sensibo Air Sensor steps in.
Modern day air conditioner is a boon and an unmatched gift to us by the previous generations, however Sensibo Air Sensor takes it to the next level. This tiny device transforms the modern day air conditioner into a smart automated system to save your extra money. It is equivalent to an amazon fire stick to convert your TV into a smart TV. Let us find out the details about Sensibo Air Sensor and you can decide whether to buy or not. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a pocket air conditioner for added convenience.
What is Sensibo Sky?
Sensibo Sky is a small wiFi enabled device that transforms your conventional air conditioner into a smart air conditioner. It works by connecting to your home WiFi and intercepting your infrared remote control unit. Now, you can use the Sensibo app instead of the remote to control the air conditioner from anywhere and anytime.
The Sensibo device has a thermometer to track and control the temperature and humidity remotely. Additionally, you get 7 day scheduling and it can turn on/off whenever you are about to come home or leave home based on your location.The good part: it is compatible with any remote controlled air conditioner and just takes a couple of minutes to set up. It is also compatible with a range of smart devices like Alexa, Google or Siri so you can control the AC with your voice.
Sensibo Sky: Price and Availability
When I first checked the device online, I was astonished to see more than 1500 five star reviews on Amazon. It definitely elevated my confidence in this tiny wiFi enabled device. The Sensibo Sky is available right now at just $99 ($149 – Normal price) which is definitely a steal. If you want to spice things up, you can opt to go for a Sensibo Air and Room Sensor. The Sensibo Air does everything that the Sky does, plus it converts your house into a climate ecosystem. It will enable you to save more money by changing the temperature based on where you are. This device can measure the temperature and humidity of a room when you enter and always keep you cool no matter where you sit. Additionally, it also comes with a smart room sensor which consists of motion and climate sensors. The normal price is $199 but for a limited time, you can buy it on sale for $179.
Is it worth it?
Sensibo does a whole lot of tasks apart from the usual remote. It can track temperature and humidity, can check if there is someone in the room, check weather conditions and collect data from your location to turn on/off the air conditioner. There is one drawback if you have multiple air conditioners, you will need to purchase individual devices for each air conditioner. We have worked on a lot of smart home devices this year and we think due to the ongoing we will see more such devices coming in 2021 due to remote work and work from home.
