Air-con Monitor Advanced has been designed for monitoring rooms where a more precise control is needed. A cost effective solution to saving energy with additional features.
Air-con Monitor Advanced allows you to monitor a room and set a time delay to send the IR signal to the air-conditioning unit to switch it off. You can set the time delay by 15, 30 or 60 minutes so the monitor sends the command if no movement has been detected within your programmed time.
The unit has built in learning to enable you to programme your air-conditioning remote control off command into the unit, this allows the Air-con Monitor to send the exact same signal to your air-con unit to switch it off. Because the unit is sending the same signal to your air-con unit this ensures that the unit closes down as intended and does not void any guarantee you may have.
The monitor also incorporates a light sensor with variable light sensitivity so that if you do not require the sensor to switch off the air-con during the hours of darkness e.g. in a bedroom you can activate this feature.
The sensor has a real time clock to allow you to set precise times that the monitor is activated or de-activated via a USB connection using the supplied software, for environments that need specific time control.
The unit allows you to add an optional door sensor (sold separately) that can be programmed so that if a door is left open for longer than a set time the monitor will also turn the air-conditioning off. This stops the air-con being used while expensive cooled air is escaping the room though the door.
A temperature sensor is also built in that when enabled allows you to pre-set a minimum temperature level, so that if the temperature in the room is set too low via the remote, then the temperature up command is sent until the pre-set level is reached whilst the room is occupied to avoid wasting energy to over cool the room.
PC software to control the advanced features
The installation of the monitor is simple as it is stand alone requiring no wiring or professional installation. The unit is powered by two AA batteries which will give you over 12 + months usage. Once you have programmed in your remote off command and features into the monitor (which will remain in the memory even if there is no power) you simply only need to fix to a position where it can send the signal to the air-conditioning unit.
Air-con Monitor has been designed using a standard alarm type housing to disguise its real function enabling it to blend in with a room and unlikely to be tampered with by occupants.
