Kickstarter - Nature Remo, an IoT device to Make In-wall A/C Units Smart, Fully Funds on Kickstarter, Only Has Five Days Until Funding Ends
Nature Remo works with any window-mounted or in-window A/C unit using infrared technology
Nature Remo is a simple way to turn any existing, standard in-wall or window-mounted air conditioner into a smart A/C unit. With the explosion of the Internet of Things in recent years, there have been various air conditioner systems that come smart, but rarely does one see a small device that easily makes a standard in-wall unit become more cost effective and intelligent.
"We have created an innovative device that turns virtually any standard in-window air conditioner into a smart unit that has all of the features of an expensive A/C unit for a more affordable price," Nature Remo CEO Haruumi Shiode said. "With our device, all you have to do is stick Nature Remo to the wall and connect to home Wi-Fi with the app to start enjoying cool air when you need it and avoid spending money when you don't."
Nature Remo's installation is pain-free. There are no wires to connect and no screws to damage the wall. The way Nature Remo works is simple. The user downloads the mobile application that connects via Wi-Fi to the Nature Remo controller. The tiny square then uses infrared technology to connect to any remote-controlled A/C unit and can be easily controlled from anywhere.
Every Nature Remo controller also comes pre-programmed for use with various units manufactured by companies such as Frigidaire, Honeywell, GE, LG, Samsung, Mitsubishi Electric, Sharp, Fujitsu, and Panasonic. While the current version of Nature Remo supports only A/C units that use a remote control, in December 2016, Nature, Inc. plans to deliver a device that is able to work with an A/C unit that doesn't come with a remote. Additionally, Nature Remo will have a mobile app for Android phones available for download soon after the iOS app is released.
Currently, Nature Remo is accepting pre-orders for $69 for one controller or $129 for two. The campaign will be accepting pre-orders for five more days before the price goes up. To learn more or to pre-order Nature Remo, please visit bit.ly/RemoKS.
