Friedrich Air Conditioning Co. has unveiled its expanded Wi-Fi-enabled room A/C product options.
This includes updates for the Friedrich Kühl line, which will now offer integrated Wi-Fi capabilities. Kühl’s connectivity goes beyond enabling customers to remotely control their units via computers and smart phones. With Friedrich Kühl, users can set schedules, and even group multiple units so that they can be singularly controlled as a form of building management, similar to a larger central system.
Friedrich also is incorporating the same technology as part of its WallMaster line this year. Friedrich WallMaster is a through-the-wall A/C unit designed to fit into a 27-inch sleeve. That’s essential for New York and other East coast city residents who live in historic buildings or high-rise apartments with existing sleeves that require the right-sized unit.
Its Chill Premier and Uni-Fit lines have Wi-Fi capabilities, allowing customers to control their A/C units with their smart devices. With Kühl, WallMaster, Chill Premier and Uni-Fit, customers can now choose from Friedrich’s variety of Wi-Fi-enabled room A/C units that are either window or through-the-wall options, ranging from 5,200 to 35,000 BTUs with models designed to fit nearly any budget.
For all of its Wi-Fi-enabled product lines, Friedrich has unveiled an updated wireless platform interface, making it intuitive for customers to control their A/C units via their smart devices and set their comfort level from anywhere, at any time. The platform also is compatible with both Amazon Echo and Google Home.
