Make your aging air conditioner cool again with this pile of sensors

Many folks who reside in South East Asia will agree that during the summer, air conditioners can be temperamental at times — your room’s either too cold or not cold enough. As a result, users — including this author in < strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Hong Kong — end up having to pick up the remote control every now and then to adjust the temperature. This is exactly what Hong Kong’s < strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Ambi Labs is trying to solve: This startup has just launched its < strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Ambi Climate device on Kickstarter, and the idea here is that you’re adding a small hub that uses local weather data plus sunlight, air flow, temperature, humidity and movement detection, in order to adjust the air conditioner accordingly with its infrared transmitter (< strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Ambi Labs says it can quickly add your remote to the database if it’s missing). With the room temperature staying more consistent, you’re saving both energy and the hassle of finding the remote. %Gallery-slideshow230935%
