With the growing concerns about human’s environmental impact, many people are understanding that less can mean more. Less waste, less consumption, and less harvesting of finite resources means a better situation for every living thing on the planet. Even if you don’t believe that human activity has been contributing to climate change (although you should), there’s little (if any) long-term downside to making a better, cleaner, healthier planet.

Monolyth appThe immediate reward for using less energy is having a smaller bill at the end of the month. Pretty neat, right? And if there is any one huge energy sink during hot summer months, it’s going to be the air conditioning unit. Instead of letting it run by default all day, you can make that AC unit a smart one with Monolyth.

Monolyth is a device that lets users schedule, monitor, and control window or wall air conditioners remotely via smartphone or tablet. The WiFi-enabled Monolyth is also jam-packed with sensors for movement, sound, temperature, humidity, pressure, and air quality. Through the connected app, users can check and track these environmental aspects to see what’s going on during the day. You probably don’t need the AC running high while you’re at work, but might want the house cooler once you come home. The Monolyth app lets you set schedules just for that.

Since you can control the air conditioning with precision, less energy is used. What’s neat about Monolyth is that it can measure indoor temperature and connect to the internet to find what the outdoor temperature is. That kind of information helps to determine when you need the AC on. Hotter days will need more AC run-time

Although the app has comprehensive information, the scheduling and operation is easy. Not only is Monolyth affordable, it should pay for itself within a year, if that. Check out the Monolyth Indiegogo page to see everything it can do for you.
