How to Set a Program with AirTouch 5

It is easy to program your home climate control with AirTouch 5.

With AirTouch 5’s all new program function, you can setup different rooms to be air conditioned at different times of the day. But with the latest software updates, it is now possible to change the mode, fan speed, and set point of your home ducted AC unit, and have it turn ON and OFF at different times. With the latest AirTouch 5, you can sequence your climate control preferences for the whole day. See how easy it is with the new tutorial video.

  2. Hi,
    I have set the programs and have assigned 3 different hot and cool temperates to different zones and timers, but it’s not working.
    Does the main control page need to be on for the programs to kick in or should the programs run on their own?
    If a zone on the main control page is turned on, does it override the program?

    1. Hi Vera, AirTouch 5 runs 1 program at 1 time. However, you can turn different rooms on or off, and adjust them with in it for different times. Think of it as a program within the program.

      Make a new program, say ‘Evening’ with a start and end time. Then, select the zones you want it to affect. But also, press the 3 little dots menu to the right of ‘Program Affects Zones’ so you can have different rooms turn on or off, and adjust them within the program’s time. Setup your days and AC unit settings.

      However, with 1 ducted AC unit, you can only 1 mode at a time. So it can’t cool 1 room and heat the other at the same time. It can cool 1 room, then turn off that room and then heat another though but it can’t produce cooled and warmed air at the same time.
