Sensibo, the smart home company democratizing smart A/C and heating for everyone, can now be controlled through Siri Shortcuts with the release of the product’s updated app available to users with iOS12 or later. Siri Shortcuts is available as a separate app and creates a “shortcut” or “suggestion” by pairing with your Sensibo Sky iOS app in order to combine related actions and launch them with one command. With this update, Sensibo users can now control their A/C or heating units with Siri, for the first time ever. The update is available on the App Store today.
Although related, Sensibo Sky is different from smart thermostats like ecobee and Nest as it works with any air conditioner or heat pump that has a remote. That includes split, portable, window, and traditional air conditioners as well as heat pumps.
