Aircon Off AC-14 is our most advanced mains powered model. The AC-14 is compatible with all AC's that operate by infra red remote control. This model works in conjunction with dual purpose wireless door or window sensors to allow even more control over your air conditioning units. It turns off the AC unit automatically if a room is left empty or if a monitored door or window is left open for more than 3 minutes.
Occupancy Motion Smart Sensor Technology
In Empty Rooms Aircon Off turns off the AC unit after a preset time.
Owner Settings secured with unique access code lock
Set Independent Night and Day settings
Can detect motion, open doors and windows
Multiple set up options to suite all room types.
AC-14 is universally compatible with any air conditioner that can be operated by an Infra Red remote control.
The AC-14 is mains powered like the AC-12 and can be fitted directly adjacent to your air conditioning head unit ensuring that the simple connecting cables are tamper-proof.
Because the AC Series is mains powered, under Australian law these units must be installed by either a qualified air conditioning technician or an electrician.
Typically it takes between 30 and 40 minutes to install and set up a AC unit.
The Aircon Off AC-14 contains 2.4G RF communication with a number of wireless optional accessories such as Door/Window (D/W) Sensors and Auxiliary Movement Sensors for very large rooms.
D/W sensors are dual purpose 2.4Ghz reed type switches that communicates the status of the door or window to the AC-14 unit to which they are paired. Pairing is a simple process during setup.
Where the D/W Sensors have been fitted, should a door or window be left open for more than 3 minutes Aircon Off will switch off the AC. (The AC-14 is supplied with one D/W sensor, more may be required dependant on room type and design).
Aircon Off AC-14 also turns off the AC in rooms left empty. The AC-14 will sense when the air conditioner is running and then scan the room for occupancy using Passive Infra Red (PIR) technology. As the sensor will only detect body heat it will not be affected by items such as ceiling fans, or curtains. When no occupancy has been detected after a pre-set time delay, a signal will be transmitted to the AC to switch it off. Aircon Off copies and uses the “Off” signal from the AC remote to communicate with the AC, thus ensuring that the AC always shuts down correctly.
Aircon Off is NOT a switch or relay. Aircon Off does not affect or process the power supply to the AC and is completely Passive in operation.
At no time will Aircon Off switch the AC “On”. On re-entering the room, if air conditioning is required, the occupant simply turns the air conditioner back on using the normal remote control as they normally would.
Being mains powered means that sensor power is optimised and there is no ongoing maintenance for the unit.
Function Controls & Settings
Tamper Proof Lockable Key Pad
In order to operate the function buttons, it is necessary to first enter a secure access code.
After the occupant has left the room, Aircon Off will continue to scan the room for a pre –set time, 15,30 or 60 mins before sending the signal to turn off the AC
24/7 - Aircon Off will turn off the AC if the room is left empty regardless of day or night
COMFORT PLUS - when it is dark, Aircon Off will allow the AC to continue operating for 2 hours after the last movement was detected, after which time Aircon off will switch off the AC.
NIGHT SETTING - During hours of darkness Aircon Off will not switch the AC off even if no movement is detected. (No accidental switch off's with sleeping occupants).
DOOR/WINDOW SENSORS - With Standard Mode the door and window sensor(s) will switch the AC off if left open for more than 3 minutes
These settings are suitable for single room apartments or for bedrooms, or for any room that can only be entered and exited via a door. This setting is not suitable for a room that can be exited via stairs or via a door that does not have a D/W sensor fitted.
OCCUPANCY LOGIC MODE
By using Occupancy Logic Mode the AC will be allowed to run even if the occupant is not moving and the room is not dark. This makes it especially suitable for any scenario where occupants want to sleep during the day without needing to darken the room. Such as any daytime sleeping, (shift workers etc)
Aircon Off works in conjunction with the D/W sensor to determine the occupancy of the room. For example, if a person enters the room and closes the door behind them, provided Aircon Off detects their movement within 5 minutes it will be deemed that the room is occupied. Consequently the AC will be allowed to run for the duration, regardless of any further movement being detected. When the person exits the room and closes the door behind him, if no movement is detected in the room within 5 minutes, the room is now deemed as unoccupied and the AC will be switched “Off”. If at any time the door is left open for more than 3 minutes the AC will be switched "Off".
Note: All doors that can be used to enter and exit the room must have a D/W sensor fitted to them.
ECONOMY NIGHT LOGIC MODE
Using this option, Aircon Off will control the AC as per OCCUPANCY LOGIC MODE setting during daylight hours. When Aircon Off detects darkness (provided no further movement is detected) Aircon Off will switch the AC off after 2 hours. If the AC is restarted by an occupant, it will be allowed to run continually.
Aircon Off will go back to operating as per Occupancy Logic Mode 2 hours after it detects light again in the morning. At any time the door and window sensor(s) will switch the AC off if left open for more than 3 minutes.
PARENT ACCESS LOGIC MODE
This logic is designed for bedrooms in holiday rental properties that are occupied by babies or small children. Using this setting Aircon Off will control the AC in keeping with OCCUPANCY LOGIC MODE during daylight hours. However during hours of darkness, Aircon Off and the door and window sensors will go into standby mode. This will allow the AC to run during the hours of darkness, even with the door sensor left open. This allows parents to gain access to children, and to keep the AC running as they require. Please note that the room must be in darkness with the door closed for a minimum of three minutes for Aircon Off to switch from daylight operation, to child friendly/parent access operation i.e. for Aircon Off and the door and window sensors to go into standby mode.
