I received a couple of press releases related to some things Samsung is launching at CES 2017. One thing that stood out to me is the wind-free air conditioner. I’m not sure this is for me, although I would have to experience it first hand to be sure. I happen to love cold wind hitting my body on hot days. It does save energy and it is WiFi enabled with a couple of smart features.
The AR9500M is also Wi-Fi-enabled so it can be controlled from anywhere through Samsung’s Smart Home app. Users can remotely regulate temperature, adjust settings, receive real time updates about performance and daily energy usage, as well as troubleshoot solutions when a repair is needed.
One thing I noted was that wind-free is just one mode. First the room has to to be quickly (wind) cooled to the desired temperature.
The AR9500M provides customers with the ideal condition by maintaining the comfortable room temperature, using Wind-Free Cooling to gently disperse cold air through 21,000 micro air holes. A two-step cooling system which first lowers temperatures in “Fast Cooling Mode” and then automatically switches to “Wind-Free™ Cooling Mode” creating “still air” once the desired temperature is reached.
I asked my social streams “What do you wish a smart AC could do?” and I have noted the following. The AC should sense your comfort level and adjust accordingly. It should devise an on and off schedule based on usage pattern and other information. How about turn off if the windows or doors are opened? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
