A smarter way to stay cool
ThinkEco’s smartAC kit brings modlet smarts to all plug-in air conditioners. In addition to minute-level energy data capture and setting a customized schedule to automatically turn A/Cs on and off, set your desired room temperature using the smartAC thermostat to stay cool while saving energy.
With the ThinkEco software and smartphone app, you can turn your A/C on and off or change the temperature setpoint from anywhere. Track your energy usage and savings plan remotely and manage your A/Cs on the go.
How it works
The smartAC’s functions are best described by our short 3-minute video.
With the smartAC kit, you can set a personalized schedule to automatically turn your A/C on and off to save energy. In addition, the smartAC thermostat remote senses the room temperature and will turn your A/C on and off to maintain a room temperature that is 1 or 2 degrees (customizable through the software) around your desired set point. Avoid over-cooling and over-spending on your energy bill.
Smart A/Cs for smart buildings and a smart grid
With electricity grid loads peaking in the summers, utilities can use the smartAC kit to manage room air conditioner loads and reduce summertime peaking. By sponsoring a demand response program and aggregating room A/C loads, utilities can raise the room temperature of users who opt in to the program by a few degrees to reduce their peak load. Meanwhile, building managers with window A/Cs in their portfolio now have the perfect tool for centrally managing units and stopping runaway energy use.
Residents of New York City, San Antonio, and Baltimore may qualify for free smartAC kits with one of our utility programs.
