  Away Mode helps you take care of the climate at home while you’re out of the house. Set temperature and humidity thresholds and Ambi will make sure your plants, pets and clothes are protected from unwanted moisture and extreme temperatures. Ambi Climate has built-in intelligent sensors that measure temperature, humidity, sunlight and motion. Using this sensor data, Away Mode will only turn on your AC to meet your threshold.

  Choose a heating, cooling, or drying limit. You can also select a timeout if these settings can’t be reached. Get a glance-able view of Away Mode for any or all of your rooms.

As you use Away Mode, the AI can minimize your energy costs by switching the AC on (or off) only when necessary.  In these situations, Ambi Climate can help to protect your home and belongings from changing outdoor conditions and prevent against weather damage.

  We’ve also had a number of users tell us they use Away Mode for turning on the heater in their vacation home, to maintain low temperatures in their summer home and to help them ensure their stored inventory is not affected by high outdoor humidity.

    Does ambi climate only talk with AC units or are there also dehumidifiers on the market that ambi climate can work with to control the humidity level.

      Hi Frank,

      Ambi Climate works with AC units and heat pumps, as long as they have an LCD-screen remote, since it operates via infrared. Regarding humidity, while we cannot support dehumidifiers, if your AC supports dry mode along with the cool/heat/fan modes, Ambi will be able to control and switch between those different modes as needed (within our Smart modes such as Comfort Mode or Away Mode) to regulate the humidity according to your preferences. Ambi is equipped with sensors that can also measure the humidity in the space. With Away Mode you can set a target humidity and Ambi will do the rest – it will use cool mode or dry, whatever is needed to keep it to your liking, and will turn off once the threshold is reached in order to conserve energy! Hope this answers your question and if you have anything else on your mind, please let us know.

    Hi! I was just wondering if the motion sensor can trigger the away mode to come on so if the sensor senses there is no movement in the room for a while, the AC can save energy by turning on Away Mode. Thanks!
