Which air conditioners does Ambi Climate support?
Ambi Climate is compatible with over 50 brands and 1,200 remotes. Whether you have a window, wall mounted, split or portable air conditioner, Ambi Climate can work with most remotes that have an LCD screen; even air conditioners with heating capabilities! If your remote is not listed on our compatibility page or if you have a Frigidaire remote, please send us photos of the front and back of your remote and we will get back to you ASAP.
How is it different from a regular remote?
Traditional remote controls allow choosing a set temperature without taking into consideration the actual conditions. Ambi Climate uses real-time outdoor weather data and sensors to measure the temperature, humidity and sunlight. Our Machine Learning capabilities combine this data along with your feedback to auto-adjust the air conditioner for optimal comfort.
How many times do I need to give feedback before Ambi Climate starts learning?
Ambi Climate starts learning from the very first feedback given. We often recommend users to give feedback once or twice daily for a week, preferably under various climate conditions and time of day, in order to optimize Ambi Climate's A.I. performance. After this period, feedback should only be required when outdoor conditions or your daily patterns change.
Can I share my device with another user?
Yes. You can share your device access with as many users as you like, be it your parents, partner or anyone else. They can set up an account to build their own personalized profile by providing feedback on their comfort. If multiple users are present, the A.I. will adjust the air conditioner based on the last feedback given.
How can I track my usage pattern overtime?
Our in-app Analytics page will keep you informed on your AC usage patterns. You can track your AC runtime, mode usage, average AC set points, as well as visualize the factors that affect your comfort the most.
Can I set smart timers?
You can set up to 10 timers! Simply name your timer, select the time to start and days you would like it to run on. This will automatically switch your Ambi Climate to any smart modes or off at your preferred time.
Is it simple to set up Ambi Climate?
Our simple and quick installation process lets you install Ambi Climate in a breeze! Simply download our app, plug in your Ambi, connect it to your WiFi network, followed by a few in-app steps and you're good to go!
Setting up the device takes approximately 5 minutes, no technician required.
Does Ambi Climate need internet & power all the time?
Our A.I. relies on the real-time sensor data collected and sent back to our cloud by Ambi Climate to control your air conditioner, so it'll need continual internet connectivity. It should be plugged into a power outlet to provide sufficient power for the device to send infrared signals.
Now you can control your air conditioner effortlessly via voice command. Tell Alexa to turn your air conditioner on/off, provide comfort feedback or simply ask what the current temperature is in your room. Bring your smart home experience to the next level!

Currently, you can create triggers to:
1) Turn your air conditioner on/off based on your smartphone location
2) Get notified if your room gets too hot/cold/humid
3) Ensure your air conditioner is always switched on to Comfort mode
Comfort Mode uses Machine Learning techniques to learn what is comfortable for you, through the feedback you provide (too cold, a bit warm, freezing etc.) at that very moment. Ambi Climate's A.I. then automatically adjusts your air conditioner to maintain comfortable conditions for you, compensating for any changes in outdoor conditions or your daily habits. Over time this can also reduce overheating and overcooling issues you may encounter with a traditional remote.
Away Mode helps you take care of your home while you are away. This mode allows you to adjust and maintain a cooling, drying or heating threshold. Setting the threshold is easy: simply let Ambi Climate know if you would like to keep the humidity below or temperature above or below a certain level. Ambi Climate’s A.I. then minimizes your energy costs by switching on your air conditioner only when it is needed to maintain the threshold.
Temperature Mode allows you to select a set target temperature, and Ambi Climate will auto-adjust with a variety of settings to reach your target. For example, if you set it to 23°, our A.I. and its knowledge of how your room and the air conditioner respond to climate changes, will allow selecting the best settings for maintaining your target temperature.
Manual Mode lets you control your air conditioner through the Ambi Climate app without having to use your remote, whether next to the air conditioner or just at home. This mode controls your air conditioner as your normal remote would (i.e. temperature, AC modes, fan, swing, louver, etc.) without any added A.I. benefits.
