GE Appliances Unveils Geolocation Technology With Smart Window AC Units
As temperatures climb, new smart technology from GE Appliances, a Haier company, rolls out as the industry’s first and only WiFi-enabled window air conditioning (AC) units with geolocation capabilities. By connecting the window AC unit to the GE Comfort app, users can enable real-time adjustments to the temperature before they ever get home, creating energy savings and peace of mind.
When activated, the location assist feature uses the phone’s location to determine if homeowners are away from home and then automatically adjusts the temperature setting to maximize overall comfort and efficiency. Then, as homeowners return, the AC automatically transitions to the ideal preset temperature, quickly cooling the space when someone will be there to enjoy it.
Additionally, weather integration is built into the app to keep users informed and in control of their home temperature, no matter where they are. Through the GE Comfort app, users can also create a cooling schedule, monitor and control multiple air conditioners from the control of their fingertips, choose cooling modes and receive reminders to clean or change filters.
