With Summer 2018 fast approaching and as the world moves closer and closer to “smart everything”, we’d like to do our Ambi Climate 2 review, a new tech device that we regard as a new era for air conditioners and personal comfort.
This “gadget” is also beauty on the eye. Small, compact, sleek, slim and SMART; a perfect recipe to not only keep you comfortable but also does not tarnish your beautiful home with ugly wires and bulky components.
However, as great as it is, we’re sure there’s more than meets the eye with the Ambi Climate 2, let’s dig in a little deeper.
Ambi Labs, The Company
Ambi Climate is produced and sold by Ambi Labs, an IOT (internet of things) startup based in Hong Kong.
With a big, 30+ team of tech experts working on Ambi Climate, it’s not hard to see how they managed to create such a stellar piece of tech bringing all the features I will talk about in this review, into a smart, compact product.
What Is Ambi Climate? Reviewing The Product
Contrary to popular belief, Ambi Climate is not an AC in itself, but rather a device that will help you control your air conditioner with ease.
The great thing about Ambi Climate is that it can turn ANY air conditioner into a smart air conditioner with its technology.
(It’s good to note that Ambi works with all modern air conditioners; any remote controlled AC can be powered by Ambi Climate).
This is fantastic since you would not need to get a new smart air conditioner, which tend to cost a lot more, but you can simply add on this device to it and your “regular AC” is now turned into a smart, app-controlled piece of modern technology.
Ambi’s Kickstarter Campaign
As with many things that are the fruits of someone’s imagination, Ambi Climate was launched on Kickstarter as a way to start and fund their business.
Needless to say, this was a great move by Ambi Labs and a great win for Ambi Climate seeing how the campaign raised, to this day; HK$ 1,215,905
Just to give you an idea if how quickly this product was loved, the initial goal of the Kickstarter campaign was set at HK$ 390,000.
People saw the potential, and they backed it to its MAX!
Well done Ambi Labs! Now let’s continue with this review.
Artificial Intelligence Meets Ambi Climate
The unique feature of Ambi Labs is that it is AI controlled.
Have you ever had the experience of having your air conditioner suddenly go too cold, or too warm leaving you having to adjust its temperature and setting as you go about your day?
THAT is the problem an AI-powered device such as Ambi Climate can solve for you.
I live in a hot country, so I know how important it is to stay cool. Sometimes, you lower the temp to cool it down quickly, only to be freezing cold in a few minutes and having to slowly increase the temperature till you get it juuuuust right.
That problem is a thing of the past!
Ambi climate uses various metrics to keep your AC temperature just as you like it. These are:
- Time Of Day
Combining all these metrics, along with (over time) learning about your preferences and how you like to feel comfortable, Ambi Climate uses various AI formulas to keep your room and your body at just the right temperature – all day, every day.
Smart right? Very!
Ambi Climate’s App
As with everything, Ambi can also be controlled by a smartphone using their mobile app which luckily is available for both Android and the iTunes.
The app will allow you to track, measure and do any changes to the settings to help the AI inside Ambi Climate learn more about you and your preferences.
Ambi Climate’s Best Features
What more else can you ask for? Well, let’s see what else the Ambi Climate can do:
Eliminate Over Heating / Over Cooling:
As explained above , this issue with overheating or overcooling is a thing of the past.
Using their AI based formula, Ambi Lambs can really make you feel more comfortable in your own home.
30% Energy Consumption Saved:
By solving the issue of overcooling and overheating, this gadget also saves you an approximately 30% of your usual costs running your ACs.
Ambi Climate 2 Integrations:
Ambi Climate can also be connected to devices such as the Amazon Alexa and even the internet based, IFTTT.com (if this, then that), a helpful service that will allow you to set actions based on other actions.
Since the Ambi Climate will be connected to your internet, all of this would be possible to do.
For example; you can set IFTTT to switch on your Ambi Climate as soon as your location on your device recognizes you are on your front door.
There are many other features you can do with IFTTT and Alexa, some you can see here:
Where To Buy Ambi Climate 2?
At the current time, you can purchase Ambi Climate from 2 location and that is:
- Amazon and
- The Ambi Climate website.
You can also continue to back the Kickstarter Campaign here.
How Much Does IT Cost & Where Does It Ship To?
Currently, the Ambi Climate retails for just $129 on Amazon.com and it ships to every country in the world from the Ambi Climate website.
If you were expecting a higher price for this, I feel you as I at first (based on just the hype) I was expecting Ambi Climate to sell for at least $500.
What The Media Is Saying About Ambi Climate
With the success it had on Kickstarter and also the huge demand it created, mainstream media and publications quickly jumped on the Ambi Climate bandwagon.
Here are what these companies had to say about Ambi Climate:
Do I Recommend Ambi Climate?
Yes, yes, yes!
I love the fact that any (modern) air conditioner can now be made smart thanks to Ambi Climate.
The price point is just right, they ship everywhere in the world and it’s a product that saves you money while also helping you feel more comfortable.
Again; living in a very warm climate, personal comfort at home is a problem I understand very well.
Is It Worth The Price?
As I said, I expected this to retail for much more than it is (but don’t tell AmbiLabs that).
Who Is It For?
Ambi Climate is for everyone, for the whole family.
It’s small and compact and it just works wonderfully well. Again; I highly recommend this product!
Than you for reading my Ambi Climate 2 review. I hope you enjoy this product as much as I did and I look forward to hearing your experiences with the Ambi Climate.
