NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 24, 2015) - Keeping our homes cool during warm weather has been humankind’s priority since we started airing out our caves millions of years ago. Now, finally, someone has a found an efficient and energy-saving way to keep your humble abode cool while also keeping your energy bills down. Debuting as a limited B&H exclusive for the next 60 days, the tado Smart AC Control unit connects to your home Wi-Fi network, and then uses infrared signals to control your AC unit, once you’ve input your make and model into the interface.

Using the geo-location sensor on your phone, the tado senses when the last person has left the dwelling, and puts the AC into energy-saving mode. As you make your way back home, it senses your arrival ahead of time via the same geo-locator and turns the AC back on, so you come home to a cool home or apartment -- without running the air conditioning nonstop, 24/7. You can even adjust levels manually through the capacitive touch surface of the home unit. And because it also uses Bluetooth connectivity, it even senses in which room of the house you are.

With more than 6 million AC units in New York City alone, the tado is a welcome ecological device that will save you the expense of constantly running your AC unit. And B&H will sell the tado exclusively for the first 60 days, starting today. Pick one up and keep your cave cool this summer.
