Breathe better air at home and keep it cool naturally with the SmartWindow automated window. This smart ventilating system automatically brings fresh air into your home when it detects cool temperatures. It also works alongside your air conditioner, reducing its workload and, thus, lengthening its lifespan.

You love the way your home feels and smells on a cool, breezy day when you have the windows open. With the SmartWindow, you can take advantage of those beautiful temperatures, whenever they occur, helping you cool your home on days when it’s cool out but warm inside. Best of all, this helps you save on energy costs.

Pull cool, fresh air into your home

The SmartWindow is easy to use. Just install it on your window or wall, and this sustainable product monitors the local temperature. When it detects cool air, it pulls it into a warm room, bringing fresh air indoors and lowering the temperature.

But, unlike a standard room ventilator, it won’t waste energy when idle. That’s because this eco-friendly ventilator shuts its valve, reducing heat loss in winter and preserving coolness in the summer.

Use this automated window with your AC system

Don’t worry, you won’t have to overhaul your entire cooling system to use this automated ventilating gadget. In fact, the SmartWindow is designed to work alongside your air conditioner. And you don’t even need any particular setup to make the two devices communicate. That’s because the SmartWindow works solely on localized temperature detection.

According to the company, this automated ventilating system can lower the temperature in a room enough to let you increase the setting on your thermostat by a couple of degrees. It should also keep rooms comfortable on most evenings.

Keep warm rooms cooler

You know those days in early September or right after a heatwave. The air outside is cool, but you still need to run the air conditioner because your home is sweltering. Or do you?

Actually, those sorts of days are when the SmartWindow does its best work. When it detects cool air outside, it brings it into your home. That way, you won’t have to turn on the AC when there’s perfectly good air outdoors that can do the same thing.

And, if you live in Canada, this automated ventilating system is ideal. It lets you use your air conditioner during the day and switch to the naturally cool night air while you sleep.

Choose a device that scans your local weather reports

Another impressive feature of the SmartWindow is that it doesn’t use an internal thermostat to monitor the temperature. According to the company’s Kickstarter page, thermostats on buildings often take inaccurate readings, especially if they’re in a sunny area. Instead, this innovative ventilating system connects to the internet to read the day’s weather in your area.

Prep your home for hotter days with the Pre-Cool feature

And that brings us to another helpful feature: Pre-Cool. Since the device can read the weather, it can plan for hot days by activating the Pre-Cool setting earlier in the morning. Doing this consistently for a few days before hot weather arrives pushes your need for air conditioning until later in the day.

Connect it to Bluetooth and the phone app

The SmartWindow is also easy to use and manage, thanks to its Bluetooth connectivity and phone app. The app lets you adjust the device’s settings, including the thermostat. So on warm days, you could lower the device’s thermostat setting to pull in cool air when possible.

Purchase an array of add-ons

Every home is unique, and, to ensure this smart ventilation system fits yours, the company offers a range of useful add-ons. For example, if you don’t have an awning to protect the device from rain, it offers five different awnings, from Standard to Industrial, making it a customizable home accessory.

Meanwhile, to prevent seasonal allergies and dust, you could choose to replace your SmartWindow’s screen with a filter. Select either HEPA or Electrostatic air filters, depending on your preferences. Also, the Cold-Climate Draft Cover is for permanent installation in regions that experience extreme cold. This cover keeps you nice and warm indoors.

Select a system that’s sustainable throughout its lifespan

This innovative ventilating system’s creators kept sustainability at the forefront of their designs. For that reason, it aims to make replacement parts readily available on Amazon at affordable prices. For SmartWindow, the goal isn’t planned obsolescence, it’s fighting climate change.

Integrate this ventilation system with your smart home

What’s more, the SmartWindow syncs with your other smart home products since its control board is based on the Espressif ESP32 microcontroller. It has integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, allowing the system to work with Smart Home technology like Zigbee.

Additionally, you can also connect it to most smartphones and manage the device from up to 30 feet away. Finally, software updates will let you control and monitor the temperatures from your PC, tablet, or laptop.

If you’d like to reduce your cooling costs and keep your home fresh, consider the SmartWindow. It brings cool air into your home whenever possible, minimizing your need to run the air conditioner all the time. Overall, this device is a great way to improve your home’s air quality and comfort.
