Frequently Ased Questions about Air-Con Monitor
WILL YOUR AIR-
CON MONITOR WORK WITH MY AIR CONDITIONING UNITS?
con Monitor Basic and Advanced are compatible with a huge range of Air- Conditioning that can be controlled via a remote control. The air- conditioning remote will have a unique command to send the off signal to the air- conditioning unit for the unit to be compatible.
HOW DO I TEST THE COMPATIBILITY WITH THE AIR-
If your remote has a screen that when you switch off the display disappears then the Air-Conditioning is most likely to be compatible. You can also test for compatibility by sending the test command from the Air-Con Monitor when setting it up. If you are unfortunate enough to find the Monitor is not compatible with your system you can simply send it back to us for a full refund (see on-line shop for details)
CON MONITOR SWITCH THE AIR- CONDITIONING ON?
Con Monitor products have been designed to save as much energy as possible, so switching on would only be a conscious decision of the user using the remote control.
CAN OUR GUESTS USE THE AIR CONDITIONING AT NIGHT WHEN THEY GO TO SLEEP?
Con Monitor can control the Air- Conditioning in the bedrooms, you can choose to allow the guest to have full use of the Air- Conditioning through the night. Air- Con Monitor Advanced allows you additional control to vary how dark or light it is before entering the night mode that prevents the air con switching off. You can even control the minimum temperature in the room at the same time.
IS IT POSSIBLE MY GUESTS COULD DISABLE AIR-
Guests unfortunately look for ways to disable things that restrict usage in accommodation, this is why we have purposely incorporated our electronics in an pir alarm housing, this has a number of advantages in that firstly it is predominately positioned at the top of a wall near the ceiling and not easy to access, it is compact and looks like an alarm system sensor so they are less likely to interfere with it if they think it may set off an alarm, people are used to seeing alarm pir's so it blends into the room easily.
IS THE AIR-
CON MONITOR EASY TO INSTALL, OR DO I NEED A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN?
Con Monitor can be easily installed by a competent DIY person. Being completely wireless you do not need an electrician (especially relevant in countries that require only a qualified electrician to undertake the work).
DO YOU SUPPLY A WIRED MONITOR?
No we do not supply a wired monitor. We are very aware of the additional cost when an tradesman is needed and more importantly because the Air-
Con Monitor sends the same commands as your air- con remote control it will control your air- con and shut it down properly as the manufactures intended.
DO I NEED AN AIR-
CON MONITOR FOR EVERY AIR CONDITIONING UNIT?
CON MONITOR AFFECT MY AIR CONDITIONING WARRANTY?
Con Monitor is a completely wireless product and only interacts with your air- con unit in exactly the same way as your remote control it will not affect your warranty in anyway.
CON MONITOR CONTROL THE AIR- CONDITIONING IF THE DOORS OR WINDOWS ARE LEFT OPEN?
Con Monitor Advanced has the option of door/window sensors. A door/window open delay time allows an occupant time to open and close a door/window within a certain time before switching off the air- conditioning if the delay time is exceeded.
WE GET A LOT OF POWER CUTS, WILL THIS EFFECT AIR-
Because the Air-
Con Monitor is a standalone product powered by batteries this will have no effect at all.
HOW MUCH MONEY COULD AIR-
CON MONITOR SAVE ME?
This depends largely on how long the rooms are occupied for. Because each air-
conditioning unit is controlled by a monitor then it does mean that even when guests are in, the rooms that are not being occupied are been monitored and the air- conditioning switched off.
Because the Air-
Con Monitor Advanced has a temperature regulation feature this helps to prevent costly over cooling in rooms that are occupied.
Another benefit is gained by reduced wear and tear on equipment that was intended for domestic use, this should also reduce down time for servicing.
