Aros
The window air conditioner unit has remained pretty much unchanged since the 1970s.  So it’s about time for a technology update.Aros is a Wi-Fi connected air conditioner aimed at energy-conscious consumers, and has lots of very interesting features:

  • Learns from your patterns to cool when you need it, not when you don’t
  • Smart scheduling learns your habits and adjusts to cool the way you like all week long
  • Turns on and off according to your location and GPS settings
  • Tracks your usage so you can adjust settings to save on energy costs

Using an app on your mobile device, you can monitor, program, and control Aros from anywhere.  It even lets you set a budget for your monthly energy bill. When you get close to your limit, Aros will let you know, avoiding a nasty end-of-month surprise on your bill.  

Aros is available from Amazon for $300, and has free shipping if you’re an Amazon Prime member.  Click here for more information

While tempting, I don’t know if I would buy one just yet.  Don’t get me wrong,  I would love to get one, but it’s the first of its kind.  That means there will likely be lots of changes in the next release, and more companies offering similar products – and competition is good for innovation.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
