Can I use it for every type of Air conditioner? I am working with a company who is providing air conditioning repairs services in Australia. Actually I have been looking for this type of device for a long time. I have to check different type of Air Conditioners on daily basis and It is not easy for me to carry remotes with me. So please just guide me one thing can I use it for every type of Air conditioner?

Sounds really interesting. As far as I know, using such an app can allow you to control your aircon even when you are not home. That is something extraordinary. I also have such a feature on my aircon, but unfortunately, my aircon is broken. I contacted an excellent aircon repairing service, and I hope to get it fixed as soon as possible. I thought of buying a new one, but it is more reasonable to repair my old aircon.
