The MrCool Follow Me Function Gives You Comfort No Matter Where You’re Located

Sometimes there are parts of your home that don’t heat or cool the same as the rest of the room. This could be due to the area being subjected to direct sunlight or maybe a draft. 

Thanks to MrCool’s Follow Me function, wherever the MrCool Smart Controller remote is located, that is what the unit’s temperature will read. This mode is added for your utmost comfort. There is no more need to wait for the system to cool or heat the entire room and regulate the temperature of the room before you can finally feel comfortable.

When you look at the MrCool remote that comes with your MrCool ductless mini-split, you will see a button that says, “Follow Me.” When the unit is turned on, press this button to initiate the Follow Me feature. 

The remote will then display the actual temperature at its location, which is wherever in your home that you specifically want heated or cooled. The remote control will send this signal to the air conditioner every three minutes until the Follow Me button is pressed again. This allows the remote to act as a thermostat, allowing the air conditioning or heating to control the temperature based on the location rather than at the air handler. The Follow Me function is just another way that MrCool is keeping people cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and it comes standard with every MrCool ductless mini-split.

  1. Two questions about the “Follow Me” functionality of the remote:

    1) Will the remote still be able to communicate with the indoor unit when there is a wall or grow room tent wall in the way?

    2) is it possible to adjust the frequency in which the remote checks and adjusts the temp (defaulted at every 3 minutes)?

  2. Hello – love the follow me function. Is there a way to activate it on the app – so if you’re away you can have the unit read off the remote?

  3. So what distance does it stop working from

    I am having issues at 27ft unobstructed

    We even weighed in a new charge 😆

    Then it dawned on me, do a little more troubleshooting

    Moved the remote a little closer and see what it does

    I shot the area around the head and found it was getting within 2f of setpoint or closer based on temp at head but 4f off remotereading, leading my conclusion it’s not getting signal from remote

    Yes new energizer max batteries recently installed too…

  4. Hello
    How can I activate “follow me” from the app? OR can the unit be set to default to “follow me” at all time?

    1. “Follow Me” is a function designed for the remote, as there is a temperature sensor within the remote. When you activate the Follow Me feature, you should have the remote near you so the air handler can communicate with the remote and modulate capacity as needed. This feature also works with the Mini-Stat, but as there is not a temperature sensor within your phone that can communicate with the air handler, you won’t be able to operate the Follow Me feature from the app.

  5. if the cassettes are in FollowMe mode will they continue to cycle on and off as when in standard auto function once the desired temperature is reached?
