Dumb window A/C units only give you two options: Leave the air on all day — while burning expensive electricity — or come home to nasty, stuffy summer heat. But not Aros; because Aros is smart. Part of the Quirky + GE collection of connected products, Aros gathers information about your budget, location, schedule, and usage. It learns from this data over time to automatically maintain the perfect temperature and maximize savings for your home. Using the Wink app on your mobile device, you can monitor, program, and control Aros from anywhere.
Aros's sleek, modern design allows for upward airflow, which increases circulation; its flat, touch-capacitive sensors let you switch between three cooling modes and three fan speeds discreetly; and retractable fabric wings ensure a proper fit in your window. No doubt about it, Aros is sure to be the best looking A/C on the block.
Garthen spent years helping to cut costs and conserve resources at the Department of Energy, but it was his own dysfunctional air conditioner that sparked the idea for Aros. So he dreamt of a smarter air conditioner, then 2,238 community members on Quirky.com helped him make Aros a reality. As you might expect, Garthen is one cool guy. He's decorated with degrees, is active in Big Brothers Big Sisters, loves international travel, and boasts a mean coin collection.
Not everyone has the luxury of having central air conditioning, so if you have to get a unit might as well make it the coolest (pun intended) unit out there.
