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?

That is awesome, but in my opinion, it is more reasonable to buy an air conditioning system that has two air controllers. Because if you break the first one, you don't have to buy a new one or even worse, to build one by yourself. I recently purchased a new air conditioning system in my house. It has an app specially made for Apple iPhone that helps me control the system without using a remote. If you are interested, find more on the internet. I am sure you won't be disappointed.
