GE Appliances Adds Connected Window Air Conditioners Channel to IFTTT

GE Appliances release the connected window air conditioner channel on
IFTTT, adding to the brand’s long list of full-home connected
capabilities

LOUISVILLE, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GE Appliances has added another product, connected window air
conditioners, this summer to its growing list of appliances that
consumers can control using If This Then That (IFTTT), an online service
that allows users to create powerful connections between apps or
websites and Wi-Fi®-connected products they love.


“Consumers are often looking for easier and more convenient ways to
control appliances in their home, and this includes window air
conditioners,” said Mark Evans, product manager, room air products.
“Using the connected window air conditioner channel, you can decrease
waste of cooling an empty room and increase comfort when you’re at home.”

In only a short period of time since launching the GE Appliances
connected window air conditioner, hundreds of owners have already
started using the GE Comfort app to manage their unit, giving it a 4.2
Star rating for its capabilities, along with praising the simple
installation and quiet settings of the product.

The AEC12AV
12,050 Btu and AED10AV
10,000 Btu models already allow consumers to easily:

  • Create their own cooling schedule
  • Monitor and control their air conditioner from anywhere
  • Choose from available cooling modes
  • Control multiple units from one app
  • Get reminders to clean or change the air conditioner’s filter

Recipe for a Cooler Home

IFTTT members can concoct recipes, or directions, for how their apps
will respond to certain circumstances. GE Appliances has taken the lead
and already created a few recipes on the GE
Appliances Window AC Channel
that IFTTT users can copy:

  • Ask Alexa to set AC mode
  • Dim all lights when energy saving mode is selected
  • Add reminders to calendars if air filter needs replacing
  • Receive a notification if fan-only mode is selected
  • Set temperature
  • Track air filter alerts in a Google spreadsheet

“We are thrilled to welcome the GE Appliances window air conditioner as
the latest addition to their suite of smart appliances now available on
IFTTT,” said Anne Mercogliano, VP of marketing for IFTTT. “This
integration only further extends the functionality and value of GE
Appliances’ world-class product lineup and allows customers to enjoy
even more control over their connected lives.”
