NEWS – The Sensibo Sky Smart AC Controller can make any remote-controlled air conditioner or heat pump into a smart, WiFi-connected device.  Sensibo says it takes only a minute to install the controller, then you use a smartphone app to maintain the temperature of your home.  You can set seven-day schedules to control the temperature throughout the day; use Climate React to set triggers and adjust based on temperature, humidity, and comfort parameters; or use geo-fencing to turn your air conditioner or heat pump off when everyone leaves and back on before you arrive home.

Because Sensibo connects your unit to WiFi, you can make adjustments from anywhere and anytime you are connected to the internet.  Sensibo Sky is also compatible with Amazon Alexa or Google Home, so you can control your home’s temperature with your voice.

  • Compatible in every country and with any voltage or power outlet
  • Compatible with iOS 9.0 or later
  • Android compatibility varies by device
  • Open API
  • Extensions and integrations for SmartThings, OpenHab, Homebridge (for HomeKit) and IFTTT

The Sky Smart AC Controller is available directly from Sensibo for $119, which is a 30% savings off the regular $149 price.  Amazon also offers the Sky controller for $119.

  2. For us Apple folks although there’s no native HomeKit compatibility there is unofficial support through HomeBridge.

    If anyone isn’t aware of HomeBridge ( it’s an Open Source lightweight server that supports HomeKit API with lots of open source plugs in to interopt between unsupported devices and HomeKit in your home network.
