Automatically Turn Cooling Fans On and Off with Home Temperature Settings

Brian Hinderberger

Save money on home energy costs and help cool down your home with our Presence Smart-plug and Presence Security sensors that automatically activate your fans and window A/C unit with the right conditions.

Have you ever accidentally left on a fan in your home when there wasn't a need to have it on? Or perhaps you want to circulate the air when things are starting to heat up upstairs.  It's easy to set up a solution with your free Presence App to control anything you plug into the wall.

With Presence Security you can connect your fan or air conditioning unit to a Presence Smart-Plug. You then can gauge the energy use and cost of running your fan as well as set rules to turn it on or off.

Create Conditions

Set rules so your fans turn on when air circulation is needed in your home. Add a temperature sensor to your Presence Security system to get the temperature readings inside your home (already included in the Presence Security Pack). Our Presence Thermostat also gathers temperature data. Note: You'll need a Presence Gateway to connect the sensors to your free Presence App.

Get Plugged In

After you've added your temperature sensor it's time to add your Presence Smart-Plug. This handy device will help you convert your standard appliances into smart devices, allowing you to turn it on or off and set rules.

Now that you have everything connected it's time to start setting up your rules. Here's a quick rule to help you get started:

If ' Your Name of the Temperature Sensor' is higher than (temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit) turn on 'Your Name of Fan.' 

Now when the temperature is too warm your fan will turn on. You can set up other rules that help you turn off the fan when it's no longer needed and you can add other conditions with your rules that only engage the fan if you are home or not.

Save Money

You'll get a good look at how much energy you're using and how much you're spending. Enjoy the fact that moving forward you won't be throwing dollars into the wind.
