Reach home after a long day with the AC set already to the right temperature for you. Did you hear that right? Yes, you did. In fact it is much more than that. With Air, the smart home automation system, your smartphone can be the remote control to all the electrical devices in your home.
Air is a device designed and developed by Leaf Technologies, a startup founded by IIT Mumbai Alumni. Air is the realization of a revolutionary idea which offers tremendous help in today’s world.

How Does Air work?
There are two units in this unique smart system. For starters, there’s the sleek pentagonal device of classy design called Air, which goes on your wall. Then there are switchboard modules which can be easily placed behind the switchboard. The switchboard modules connect your appliances to Air via Bluetooth. Through the Android Air App which co-ordinates with the Air device, you can control your household devices anytime, from anywhere in the world. This saves energy as your devices are switched on only when it is actually required. And well, it saves your energy consumption too!
There’s more to the magic of Air: the sensors. Air can sense temperature, humidity, brightness and motion.
Why Do You Deserve Air?
If you’re a couch potato, Air is your best friend. You can control all the appliances in your house while sitting on your neighbor’s couch. You can bid adieu to the AC remote and stop using the geyser switches as Air takes the world “control” to a whole new level.
If you are the type of person who believes in setting the right ambience for each mood, you just have to try out Air. With its inbuilt dimmable units, Air allows you to control the intensity of the lights in your room through the app.
This is arguably one of the best features in Air. It detects your presence through the motion sensors and adjusts settings (like temperature of AC) according to your preference when you walk into a room.
