Fujitsu General has launched an infrared Wi-Fi solution for consumers to remotely control a range of its air conditioning units. Compatible with new units, as well as selected existing Fujitsu General indoor units up to 10 years old operating a wireless remote control with infrared technology, the anywAiR technology Wi-Fi device enables users to control their indoor comfort using the myanywAiR app.
The anywAiR technology Wi-Fi device is also compatible with a selection of smart home devices, such as Google Home, allowing the user to control and monitor the air conditioner using voice commands.
Fujitsu General Australia national product manager, Kyle Rafter said, “Smart technology is becoming increasingly accessible and consumers are seeking more ways to control devices remotely around the home. While consumers can easily purchase smaller devices or appliances with smart technology, it’s not always a practical solution to replace an existing air conditioning unit in order to enable the functionality.
“The anywAiR technology Wi-Fi device allows Fujitsu General consumers to enable remote smart control on their new or existing air conditioning system using a simple infrared device with Wi-Fi remote control.”
With the myanywAiR app, users can view or change the temperature setpoint, fan speed and louver position for multiple units, set the individual operating mode of each unit, view individual room temperatures, set timers and scenes, and turn individual units on or off.
The free-to-download app is available via the Apple store or Google Play and unlimited anywAiR technology Wi-Fi devices can be set up using one account.
