"As technology advances so do the expectations of consumers – they expect the appliances they bring into their homes to be smart, efficient, and easy-to-use. Air conditioners shouldn't be any different, and that's why we're excited to introduce consumers to our innovative SmartCool series ahead of summer," said Kurt Jovais, president of Midea America Corp. "Designed with Wi-Fi Connectivity and Voice Control with Alexa and Google Assistant devices, the SmartCool series delivers convenience and comfort at consumers' fingertips from anywhere in their homes or on the go."
The SmartCool series' cooling capacity ranges from 8,000 to 25,000 British Thermal Units (BTU/h) and can cool rooms up to 1500 square feet. New models within the series will respond to voice commands through Google and Alexa enabled devices. Users can change cooling settings and other features via voice when they have an Echo or Google Home device with the Midea AC Skill installed. Midea's AC units are also compatible with the MideaAir app which brings cloud-based control to any smartphone or tablet in and out of the home or business.
The new SmartCool series is also Energy Star® certified with its built-in EnergySave feature, users can further conserve energy and in turn save money on utility bills. Additional built-in features include EasyTimer which enables users to program their unit to turn on/off only when at home, as well as SleepWell which allows the air conditioner to auto adjust for maximum sleep comfort.
Designed with a stylish, exclusive touch control panel and clear LED display on the front panel, the SmartCool series is ideal for most spaces. Additional features include: a 24-hour timer mode to match consumers' schedules so it turns on automatically before they get home and off again when they leave for work; sleep mode which automatically adjusts the temperature at bedtime and maintains maximum sleeping comfort.
In addition to the SmartCool series, Midea is also introducing a new 70-Pint Dehumidifier. The new dehumidifier comes with a pump to protect spaces up to 1550 square feet from mold and mildew caused by excess moisture. It can also help consumers breathe easier by eliminating bacteria in the air that's hard on lungs. Midea's dehumidifier can work continuously to ensure seamless operation when the unit is located near a suitable drain.
