Geofencing

Don’t worry, we won’t forget to turn it off when you head out, or on again when you come home.

Control the AC with your Phone’s GPS

Give your home’s air conditioner geofencing control with AirTouch 5.

Now, there is no need to worry about forgetting to turn off the air conditioning and wasting energy when you leave the house, and you have the added luxury of it turning back on again for you automatically as you return.

Understanding Geofencing

Making life a little more comfortable…automatically, all based on your location relative to your house.

A Feature of AirTouch 5

AirTouch 5 features geofencing to turn on and off your home’s climate control based on your smartphone’s location using its GPS.

All you need to do is set the radius (distance) around your house on a map in the AirTouch app, and specify if you want to turn your AC off as you travel away, or back on as you get closer.

Having a smart climate control system with geofencing can make your life easier as you don’t have to think about your home’s optimum comfort settings as you head out or return; it just gets taken care of for you.

Example of how geofencing works, running on the AirTouch smartphone app.
