Samsung’s WiFi home appliance storm continues with a remote air conditioner

By Leigh D. Stark | 1:36 pm 17/10/2013

You’re at the beach and it’s hot outside, and you just know that when you get home, it’s going to be hot there too. Wouldn’t it be great if you could switch on the air conditioner before you got home?

Designed to let people do just that is the Samsung Smart Series II Air Conditioners, AC units that work with a wireless network to send notifications about maintenance, monitor energy usage, and of course to control the heat and cooling services we rely on an air conditioner for.

“After the success of our first WiFi Air Conditioner we are proud to bring the next evolution of the Smart Series to Australia,” said Philip Newton, Vice President of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Electronics Australia.

“The Smart Series II affirms Samsung’s commitment to providing Australians with the smartest, most innovative products we can.”

Five models of wireless air conditioner are being released as part of this range, starting from $979 and going as high as $2549 RRP, with the differences coming mostly from power, the inexpensive option providing a 2.5kW cooling and 3.2kW heating, while the most pricey model sports 8kW cooling and 9kW heating.

Outside of the power differences, the range all supports remote control, with a smartphone able to set heating and cooling status from both inside the home or via an internet connection outside, with options able to be set based on how many people are in the room, outside weather conditions, or a single person mode that bases its cooling efficiency on only one person needing the service of the air conditioner.

Filtration technology and ionisation is also included to help reduce dust levels in the home, too, which can be useful for people with respiratory conditions.

The range of air conditioners should be available from retailers now.
