Summers are back and if you are looking to pick up an air conditioner for your home, there are plenty of options to choose from. But in today's tech-centric world, it makes sense if the air conditioner boasts of some smart capabilities. Today, we have with us the LivPure Air Conditioner that boasts of some interesting smart features. Here is a quick look at some of the smart features of the AC.
If you need to control your air conditioner with your smartphone, chances are you need a smartphone with an IR blaster. In the case of the LivPure Air Conditioner, all you need is the companion smartphone app, called Heka, which you can download the app here. The AC can be connected to your smartphone over WiFi, giving you controls that go beyond just switching it on and off and changing the temperature. You have access to features like cool, medium, continuous, turbo, eco, silent, and more, which eliminates the need for the remote control once the WiFi connection has been established between the smartphone and the AC.
You can enable the Alexa skill and give commands like “Alexa, ask Heka to turn on the AC” or “Alexa, ask Heka to increase the temperature” or “Alexa, ask Heka to set the Cool mode”, so on and so forth. If you are one rocking an Amazon Echo speaker, then you can exploit the voice-enabled skills of the air conditioner.
Do you ever feel like your AC needs to be on before you get home? That's the exactly need that the 'Geofence' feature aims to fulfil. The LivPure Air Conditioner can be switched on and off based on the location of your smartphone. You can set the AC to come on when you are 500m away from your home. This distance can go all the way up to 5km. This will help ensure that you enter a cool environment from the get-go.
One more option the Heka smartphone app offers is the ability to set a time or schedule. You can set a start time or a timer range to ensure the air conditioner comes and goes off without you resorting to the remote control or the smartphone companion app.
The backlight of the display on the AC can disturb your beauty sleep. For this, the LivPure Air Conditioner comes with a “display off feature”. So even in the darkest night, you don't have the display on the AC disturbing you. While this isn't a really techie feature, but definitely one worth mentioning.
The Heka app itself offers a bunch of features. There are three smart modes that you can access from the app or the remote control. There are essentially three modes to choose from - Green, Heka and Magic. As the name suggests, the Green mode is the energy saving mode, the Heka mode is similar to a 'medium' mode working to cool the room, but do it with effective energy management. The magic mode can be considered a 'power' mode for fast and effective cooling.
When it is time to service the AC, the smartphone app will give you a notification. This is handy in informing users when it is time to service the AC to ensure it performs effectively.
