Dumb window A/C units only give you two options: Leave the air on all day — while burning expensive electricity — or come home to nasty, stuffy summer heat. But not Aros; because Aros is smart. Part of the Quirky + GE collection of connected products, Aros gathers information about your budget, location, schedule, and usage. It learns from this data over time to automatically maintain the perfect temperature and maximize savings for your home. Using the Wink app on your mobile device, you can monitor, program, and control Aros from anywhere.

Invented by Dr. Garthen Leslie + 2,238 Influencers

Garthen spent years helping to cut costs and conserve resources at the Department of Energy, but it was his own dysfunctional air conditioner that sparked the idea for Aros. So he dreamt of a smarter air conditioner, then 2,238 community members on Quirky.com helped him make Aros a reality. As you might expect, Garthen is one cool guy. He's decorated with degrees, is active in Big Brothers Big Sisters, loves international travel, and boasts a mean coin collection.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • If two people live in the room, can you sync the product to both of their GPS locations? So it would off if both people are out of the apartment...

    All products on the Wink line can be shared between accounts allowing other users to have full control of the product. In this case, if multiple users have control of Aros in the Wink app, it will perform energy saving "auto-away" features only when all users connected to the unit are gone, and will not enter "auto-away" mode if any of the users are home.

  • How quiet is the unit?

    Quirky posted sound profiles on Vimeo http://vimeo.com/94703032 Based on this, they should have partnered with Sharp.

  • Is there a filter / filtration system?

    Yep! There is a removable, washable filter.
