The Sensibo Smart AC controller is an affordable alternative to Nest

This eco-friendly assistant is now $99.

Using a smart AC controller can massively reduce your electric bill and save the planet. But many options, such as Nest, are seriously expensive. The Sensibo Smart AC Controller offers an affordable alternative without compromising on features. This clever device gives you total climate control in your home, and it’s now only $99 at the PopSci Shop.

You can install Sensibo in less than a minute, but this AC controller is a long-term upgrade. Through the companion smartphone app, you can set a full seven-day schedule. The app can also turn the AC on and off according to your location, and Sensibo can react to changing weather conditions. If the temperature or humidity start to rise, the controller will turn on your AC.

If you use Amazon Alexa or Google Home, you can even control Sensibo with your voice. The controller integrates seamlessly with these platforms, meaning you only need to speak your desired temperature to make it so. Sensibo works with pretty much any remote-controlled air conditioner or heat pump, and it’s really easy to set up.

It normally retails for $149, but you can get Sensibo now for just $99.
