The Sensibo Air smart air conditioning controller was recently updated with support for HomeKit, allowing Sensibo Air owners to access air conditioning controls through the Home app in addition to using Siri controls.
Priced at $ 139, the Sensibo Air is compatible with stand-alone air conditioning units rather than central air conditioning options. It works with the units in the window, introducing smart controls accessible through a HomeKit-enabled device.
The Sensibo Air uses sensors combined with artificial intelligence to optimize the indoor climate and reduce indoor energy consumption by activating alternating current when needed based on ambient temperature, humidity and movement. It provides usage advice based on outdoor climate and air quality data.
HomeKit compatibility has been going on for quite some time now, with the feature rolling out to users starting last week. The product was previously compatible with Alexa and will now offer deeper integration and functionality with Apple devices.
