The airCloud Home is a cloud-based solution from Hitachi that enables users to remotely monitor and control their air conditioning system via the airCloud app – downloadable on any smart device operating on android or iOS systems.
With the app, users can control the ideal climate throughout the home on their favourite mobile device. Controllable features include unit ON/OFF, temperature control, adjustable airflow direction, fan speed adjustment and weekly programmable scheduling.
Its “Smart Voice Control” feature – compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa –lets users control and monitor their Hitachi air conditioners using a range of voice commands.
Hitachi says the app allows access for up to 10 people and control of up to 20 air conditioning units on a single app. Real-time updates and reporting is available to all connected users.
Because airCloud Home operates in the cloud, new rollouts – including features, functions and models – may be added to the app via over the air [OTA] updates, hence reducing any downtime.
On the heels of the airCloud Home launch, Hitachi will soon be releasing airCloud Pro which will allow for VRF systems to be remotely managed and controlled.
airCloud Pro allows for possible connection of up to 80 indoor units and 16 outdoor units with optimised AC operations such as temperature adjustments, fan speed and louvre direction control, scheduling, user permissions and power monitoring capabilities.
Hitachi airCloud Home is available now from all authorised Hitachi distributors and installers.
