Keep Pets Cool and Save Money with a Smart Air Conditioner

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Having a fully connected smart home is near the top of my list for #lifegoals and last week, during Prime Day, we got one step closer by snagging an amazing deal on our second Amazon Echo device. “Alexa, manage my life!”

Now that we’ve got Voice and WiFi Control of our music, calendars, weather reports, shopping lists, audiobooks plus a darn-fine kitchen assistant, it’s time to start researching and learning about other smart home devices to save us money and make our lives easier.

Here in South Florida, we pretty much run our air conditioner year-round. It’s probably one of our biggest expenses, so I’m super excited about the new line of Smart Room Air Conditioners from the Kenmore brand. They’re fully programmable, can they be managed remotely using a smartphone app, AND they are Amazon Alexa compatible!

With Kenmore smart technology you can monitor and control the temperature inside your home from the palm of your hand, making it a breeze to keep your family and pets cool this summer while saving money and energy. Peek in on real-time temperature data, adjust your home’s temp from the office or while out running errands. The easy-to-use app provides remote access to turn units on and off and even set schedules for up to seven days, so you can run the AC only when you need it….convenient AND smart!

Watch this quick video to see a very CUTE dog and learn about how it works:

Highlights include:

  • Control on-the-Go: The ability to remotely turn the unit on and off, set a schedule or adjust the temperature provides flexibility to control home climates from anywhere. Use the 24 hour timer to set a schedule to run the units only when needed, or turn the air conditioner on before arriving home to ensure a comfortable temperature upon arrival.
  • Energy Savings: The Kenmore Elite Smart Room Air Conditioners are ENERGY STAR® certified and feature smart technology that allows for easy access and scheduling to run the unit only when needed, helping to save energy and money on utility bills.
  • Power to Match Your Room Size: Available in a variety of sizes from 8,000 BTUs to 25,000 BTUs, these Kenmore Elite Smart Room Air Conditioners help cool medium to large rooms, from 340 to 1,560 square feet in size.
  • Simple Setup: Scan the QR code located on the unit using a mobile device, follow the directions during a brief tutorial and the air conditioner will be up and running.
  • Amazon Alexa-Enabled: Allows users to control the air conditioner’s temperature and power settings using voice-controlled technology on an Amazon Alexa device.
  • MSRP: $269.99 – $519.99, depending on the model.

The Kenmore Elite Smart Room Air Conditioners feature technology from Afero, a leader in connecting smart devices and providing secure “Internet of Things” product solutions. For more information about current Kenmore brand smart products, visit Kenmore.com.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review #SmartCamWoof #Giveaway

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Pet parents know that the fur kids are part of the family, so when you’re at work or away and they’re home alone, you naturally want to check up on them. We’ve been testing out the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro, which allows pets and their people to stay connected.

It’s got super easy setup and a free app for Android or iOS, that lets you monitor your home and pets from any location. Advanced features for keeping an eye on your furry friends include 128 degree ultra-wide angle security coverage, 1080p full HD live video streaming, advanced motion detection, night vision and more.

With all these features, Samsung has really covered what most people need in a home WiFi camera. The price is nice, at $159, with lots of customer reviews and ratings at both BestBuy.com and Amazon. We love the two-way talk feature, although Daisy hasn’t figured out how to talk back yet! You can also use it to check-in with your human kiddos after school.

Everything you need is in the box, and I was able to get the camera up and running in about 10 minutes (it did a software security update once I connected it to WiFi). If you want, you can also get a 64GB Micro SD Memory Card which will allow you to record your video locally for long-term storage. You do need to have an existing home WiFi network set up already, which I’m guessing most of you do.

The SmartCam HD Pro also works with Samsung SmartThings and with other devices including the Amazon Echo. We got ourselves an Echo for Christmas and are loving it, but haven’t utilized it’s full capabilities yet. Anyway, here’s what’s in the box…totally not scary, and super easy to run the wireless setup using the app and your smartphone!

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Giveaway

Because we want you to stay connected to your fur kids too, we’re giving our readers the chance to WIN a Samsung SmartCam HD Pro WiFi Camera. The giveaway is open to US residents , age 18+ and ends at 11:59pm ET on 2/28/17. Enter using the Rafflecopter contest widget below to record your entries.
