Sensibo has launched an AI Assistant, powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT, into its smart heating and cooling products. According to the company, the AI Assistant understands complex requests from users and reacts to their intentions.
Instead of the simple commands that were introduced with traditional voice assistants like Alexa, the new AI assistant engages with the user and reacts. For example, it will respond to a simple command, “I’m cold,” which will result in the AI assistant turning on heating in desired temperature or a more complex conversation that sets schedules based on the weather and energy considerations. This functionality empowers Sensibo users to further conserve energy and integrate ChatGPT’s capabilities into their everyday heating and cooling routines and further enhance the Sensibo user experience.
The Sensibo AI Assistant is powered by a large language model (LLM), representing a significant leap in smart home technology. This system allows users to issue commands to the Sensibo cloud, enabling it to control HVAC devices within their premises. The integration of LLM into Sensibo’s AI assistant means that it not only understands and processes user requests but also takes direct actions with connected HVAC systems, offering a more interactive and efficient way to manage climate environments.
In 2023, ChatGPT was initially integrated into Sensibo, offering suggested recommendations derived from user behavior patterns. This included an automated AC schedule based on custom user behavior and personalized Climate React recommendations. Sensibo is now introducing this enhanced AI assistant with advanced capabilities based on the ChatGPT LLM.
Sensibo empowers users to manage their heating and cooling devices through the integration of AI, data analysis, and advanced sensors. Traditional heating and cooling devices are inefficient, consuming a substantial amount of energy. Through the implementation of the AI Assistant, Sensibo’s technology has the potential to achieve energy savings exceeding 40%, thereby significantly optimizing AC performance and reducing overall energy bills.
“As the AI revolution deepens, we at Sensibo researched more ways to incorporate this technology to advance our smart climate systems,” said Omer Enbar, COO and co-founder of Sensibo. “The integration of an AI Assistant into Sensibo, powered by ChatGPT, will make our smart controllers even smarter; now activated by voice and able to understand complex commands. The 250,000 Sensibo users around the world will secure maximum energy efficiency with these advanced technologies, directly impacting our climate.”
Sensibo’s products have been installed in hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses worldwide, bringing efficiency to air conditioners and heating devices.
Products include Sensibo Sky, Sensibo Air, Sensibo Air Pro, Sensibo Elements, and most recently, Sensibo Blaze. All are installed easily, connect to remote-controlled ACs, and may be remote-controlled via mobile app, along with full integration with Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri, and Apple HomeKit.
