Homegrown hardware startup Ambi Climate has launched a crowdfunding campaign this morning for its smart air conditioning device. Taking to the Singaporean social Launchpad Crowdtivate, Ambi is armed with the noble goal of keeping users comfortable while saving the environment.
The Ambi team has been hard at work for the past two years doing Asia-focused research on user behavior, air conditioning usage and performance. After surveying 4,000 prospective online users across 10 markets across Asia, Ambi has found that the main challenges that AC users face is maintaining comfortable indoor conditions and minimizing cost and their carbon footprint.
