leave a comment »

HONG KONG /PRNewswire/ — Ambi Climate – the delightful add-on upgrade that simplifies your comfort and optimises your home’s air conditioning (“AC”) – has officially accepted its first beta testers. Ambi Labs CEO Julian Lee announced the upcoming beta during Echelon 2014, Asia’s Largest Tech Conference, which was recently held in Singapore. Response from the audience was extremely enthusiastic, with the beta test units set aside for this occasion snapped up in less than 2 hours.

“We thank the organisers, e27, for the opportunity to present at Echelon 2014. It was the perfect platform for us to recruit beta testers from across Asia,” stated Julian. “We are also heartened by the fact that our message resonated so strongly with the audience!”

Attendees at e27 were active not just in signing up as beta testers, but they also voted overwhelmingly for Ambi Climate in the People’s Choice Award — one of only 3 prizes awarded to the 10 finalists, who were in turn handpicked out of over 400 startups that applied to Echelon 2014. “We are humbled and grateful to the Echelon attendees for their support. This validates our research into a common pain point amongst consumers in Asia,” said Julian after the event.

Echelon 2014 attendees who registered for the beta trial were also encouraged to state how Ambi Climate would help them, with the largest category of responses related to comfort. “I’m sick of adjusting my AC temperature every 30 mins!” read one, and “I hate waking up [at] night to [turn] off my aircon” stated another. Some saw an opportunity to care for their loved ones: “So that my wife can stop switching the AC on and off throughout the night.” Others wanted Ambi Climate to help with their AC’s energy consumption: “[I am a] big believer in reducing energy waste at home, especially during the night when AC might not be always required. Plus it would save loads on energy bills!”

Ambi Climate harnesses machine learning and big data techniques to solve these problems. It is the world’s first system that learns not just your preferences, but also predicts how conditions in your home will change. Ambi Climate’s patent pending algorithms build up a holistic picture of your home, and are able to adjust your AC settings to ensure your comfort, no matter the time of the day, or outdoor weather patterns. Ambi Climate also provides deep, data-driven insights into the conditions in the user’s home, and the impact of their usage behaviour. This knowledge helps users to take control of their AC usage, allowing them to understand the tradeoffs between comfort and energy consumption.

Want to sign up as a beta tester? Ambi Climate beta devices will soon be available to a wider audience via a crowdfunding campaign. Sign up for the mailing list at http://bit.ly/ambiclimatesubscribe and be notified as soon as they launch their campaign.
