wifi-enabled acs are pretty easy to set up, but before you start, make sure your phone is connected to the same wifi router you want to connect your ac to. Once connected, you can follow these steps. Please note that instructions may differ from brand to brand and model to model.
- download the ac app to your phone or tablet. If you have trouble finding the right app, check your air conditioner’s user manual or visit the brand’s official website.
- Once you download the app, you will need an ID and password to log in. if you don’t have one, create one within the app.
- enter your login credentials and you will be prompted to select your ca model.
- the application will link the phone with the air conditioner through the wi-fi router.
- the app will display your ca in the device list from where you can control your ca settings.
While most acs have direct internet support, some entry-level models may only support local wi-fi. this means that you can control such acs only when you are connected to the same wifi network, so before making a decision, narrow down the features you really need.
