Buddee Features

Power Control

Using your mobile app you can connect to your Buddee SmartPlug anytime, anywhere, using Wifi, Bluetooth or 3G/4G/LTE. Your dashboard will show all connected devices and their current power state, and with a single tap you can turn the air conditioner on or off remotely. This lets you keep an eye on when your air conditioner is being used, even when you’re not at home. When you’re leaving the office on a hot day, this feature lets you cool your home just in time for you to arrive, and if you get delayed along the way you can instantly turn it off again. Even better, if you rush out the door and leave your AC accidentally running, you can always check in through the app and turn it off to avoid wasting money.

Scheduler

Ever notice that your regular AC only lets you set one schedule for on and off? Our Buddee app lets you set as many schedules as you like, by time of day and day of week. Set it to turn your aircon on and off as you need to fit your day to day schedule. Preset an on and off schedule for Monday to Friday, and then a different schedule for weekends when you’re home more often. Setting a schedule helps you take control of your energy costs by making sure the AC runs only when you really need it, and won’t allow the AC to run if the scheduler feature is enabled but it isn’t a scheduled “on” time.

Consumption Monitoring

Your air conditioner can contribute to as much as 60% of your monthly energy bill. Keeping on top of your energy consumption is key to avoiding bill shock, and Buddee lets you monitor your energy consumption in real time, and historically. Check what hour of the day you use the AC the most, and make sure it isn’t left running when it shouldn’t be. If your AC costs start to increase on a month-to-month basis, it might be time to consider having it cleaned. Over a long period, you’ll get a sense of how much money you’re spending on cooling your home and can make an informed decision as to whether it might be time for an upgrade to a newer, more energy efficient AC unit.

Consumption Alerts

The consumption monitoring feature is complimented by our alert feature, which lets you preset a weekly limit for energy consumption (in pesos or kilowatt-hours). Once that limit is reached, the app will alert you that it’s been reached, and you can use the consumption monitoring to look back and see whether there was any unusual consumption that caused the excessive use. This is perfect for making sure everyone stays within a budget for AC energy consumption, and can help you control usage on a weekly basis to make sure there’s no more bill shock at the end of the month.

Manual On/Off

Want to turn your AC on but don’t have your mobile phone handy? You can use the LED buttons on the Buddee SmartPlug to immediately turn the AC on or off, without having to use the mobile app. Convenient for those times when you’re in a rush and want to cool down quickly.

Automatic Updates

Your SmartPlug and Mobile app will be updated regularly with new features, as we continue to find new ways of adding value and making our products even smarter. Your updates are free and automatic, meaning you can stay up to date with the latest features without any hassle.
