Now that you can control some of your gadgets around your house with a smartphone, why not the air conditioner right? Most air conditioners aren't very high in tech, but Friedrich wants to change that with their high end Kühl line. They've made a Wi-Fi dongle that lets you control the air conditioner from anywhere.
Costing around 2-3 times as much as a run of the mill air conditioner unit, the Kühl's have been a tough sell to all but the most style conscious apartment dwellers, but now there's a feature that may even get me to take notice.
The FriedrichLink Wi-Fi adapter can be added to any existing Kühl air conditioner, and will allow you to control the temperature, power, and set up a cooling schedule using an iPhone app.
Pricing and availability have not yet been announced, nor is there any word of an Android or Windows version of the app.
