We can officially announce the AirScape Gen 2 Controls Android App for our whole house fans. This will be a first in the whole house fan industry and we are very excited!
When is it coming?
Soon. We are currently in beta testing and an early to mid July release date looks probable. AVAILABLE NOW in the Google Play store!
How much? Free.
Is it backwards compatible? Yes. The app will work with all Gen 2 Controls fans from 2013 and 2014. Some data might not be available on older 2013 version fans but the functionality will be there.
Can I still use the remote controls? Yes. The app is another control method. It does not replace the wall switch, remote controls, or web interface.
What about an iOS (Apple) app? We are still working on it – There is currently no official release date.
With the AirScape Fan Controller app, you can:
* Conveniently SCAN your network (LAN) and find all connected AirScape whole house fans
* CONTROL any of the connected fans via the buttons on the app, just like a remote control
* VIEW status/temperatures/timer/SafeSpeed/interlock messages
* RENAME (assign custom names) to each whole house fan for easy identification
Note that the app must be installed on a device connected to your local network (wifi on phones). It does not operate over phone carrier networks (3G/4G, etc.). Only AirScape whole house fans equipped with 2nd Gen Controls and connected to your local network can be found and controlled.
