Launch of the Igenix Smart Air Conditioner

“Smart Home” is a term that has become widely recognised as defining a residence containing appliances capable of communicating with one another and that can be controlled remotely from in any room in the home or from any location via a phone or the internet[1]. Smart appliances are designed to conveniently enhance the living experience of home owners by providing savings in time, money and energy. Technology has now developed to mean that smart products can be connected to one another and controlled simultaneously from one place; often through an app on a smartphone or tablet.

In the past smart homes have been the hobby of the tech-savvy or wealthy, but they’ve now grown into a full blown consumer trend with the technology becoming far more widely available.

In 2018, the number of UK households with smart appliances has increased from 1.52million in 2017 to hit 2.12million, and this number is expected to continue to rise up to 5.56million by the year 2022[2].

Whilst many brands are launching their own smart products that now range from smart kettles to central heating thermostat hubs, here at igenix we’ve taken a different route into the world of smart home technology. March 2018 sees the launch of our very first Smart Air Conditioner which will be the first smart igenix appliance controlled via our brand new smart phone app.

With the new igenix app you will be able to remotely control your air conditioner from any room in the house or any other location; ensuring your home is always kept at a comfortable temperature whether you’re sat on your sofa or returning home on a hot summer’s day.

Another key benefit to the new smart air conditioner is that it is compatible with Amazon Alexa and responds to voice commands through any echo device. The next stage in sensory control, voice command technology is yet another development that is improving user interactions with their smart home. At igenix we’re always inspired by you, and so have worked hard to ensure our very first smart appliance will provide you with the type of functional quality and reliability that you’ve become accustomed to with all igenix appliances.

    I’m having trouble pairing my 1.5Kw WiFi panel heater with the app, After pressing ‘add device’ there’s no panel heater in the options to do it manually, then go to search devices and nothing happens, I followed the steps and the WiFi light is flashing fast as stated in instructions, could you off any advice please?

      Hi Alex,

      We’re sorry to hear you’re having trouble connecting your WiFi Panel Heater with the app. Let me take you step by step through the Troubleshooting guide in the hope it rectifies the issue you’re having.

      1. On the igenix app homepage, click on the ‘+’ icon in the top right hand corner of the screen to add a new device
      2. Once on the ‘Add Device’ page, click on the ‘Add Manually’ icon, then press ‘Small Home Appliances’ and then scroll down until you find the ‘Heater’ icon.
      3. To complete the ‘Add Device’ process, you first need to identify whether the Wi-Fi light is flashing rapidly or slowly.
      If the light is flashing rapidly, press the ‘Confirm indicator rapidly blink’ button at the bottom of the screen to complete the ‘Add Device’ process.
      If the light is not flashing rapidly but is flashing slowly, then you need to press the ‘AP Mode’ icon in the top right corner of the screen.
      4. Once you have clicked on the ‘AP Mode’ icon, click on the ‘Confirm indicator slowly blink’ button to complete the ‘Add Device’ process.

      If you follow those steps your device should be added. If you continue having the same issues it may point to a wider issue with your product, so please contact our customer service team using the information on this page https://www.igenix.co.uk/contact-us/ and they will be happy to assist you.
