Samsung Releases its Next Generation of Smart Air Conditioners

Oct 03, 2013

Latest addition to Samsung’s WiFi-enabled range of appliances

SYDNEY, Australia, October 1, 2013 — Samsung Electronics Australia has today released an addition to its growing connected appliances range with the launch of the Smart Series II Air Conditioner with WiFi capabilities*. The Smart Series II is designed to help make managing home cooling and heating easy for users through remote access to the unit available via an app which can be downloaded on compatible devices**.

The Smart Series II range has been designed in a triangular shape, which allows for easy installation, quick filter removal and cleaning, as well as optimised air flow. In addition to delivering a new form to the Smart Series range, the air conditioner also features a range of settings to cater to specific conditions of the environment it operates in.

Using the Smart Series II buttons, remote, or a compatible mobile device, users can manage and monitor the air conditioner’s status and a range of settings. Once connected to an internet connection through its WiFi functionality*, users can control and monitor the Smart Series II in the following ways:

  • • Turn the air conditioner unit on and off
  • • Monitor and adjust the temperature of the room
  • • Create and manage a cooling or heating schedule
  • • Monitor energy usage
  • • Notify users if maintenance is required
  • • Alert users when filter requires cleaning

“After the success of our first WiFi Air Conditioner we are proud to bring the next evolution of the Smart Series to Australia,” said Philip Newton, Vice President – Consumer Electronics, Samsung Electronics Australia. “The Smart Series II affirms Samsung’s commitment to providing Australians with the smartest, most innovative products we can,” Newton added.

Features to make your home more comfortable

The Smart Series II range offers a specific set of cooling and heating settings that can be based on current weather conditions and the number of people in the room. The Single User Mode feature can maintain a cosy and comfortable environment by reducing its cooling or heating capacity based on the needs of a single operator.

All Samsung Smart Series II models are equipped with a Samsung HD Filter and Ioniser which aim to help reduce the dust levels in the air. The HD Filter has a narrow opening, limiting the amount of dust that can pass through the filter while the Ionizer produces negatively charged Ions which help attract the positively charged dust particles they come in contact with. Thus, together, they may help the Samsung Smart Series II reduce dust levels in the air.

Easy installation and cleaning

The Smart Series II features Samsung’s Smart Installation feature, designed to update the user automatically to ensure installation has been carried out correctly. Smart Installation is a self-diagnostic feature which automatically checks for common installation faults such as wire continuity, refrigerant levels and correctly opened refrigerant valves.

The Smart Series II filter has also been conveniently located on the outside of the unit, making it easy to access and remove or replace. The EZ Filter can be accessed without having to open or close the covers.

10 Year Compressor Parts Warranty

The Smart Series II also comes with a standard 5 years warranty on parts and labour, along with an additional 5 years parts warranty on the product’s Air Conditioning Compressor.

Availability and RRP

The Smart Series II range will be made available to retailers from today, for more information please visit www.samsung.com/au.
