Introducing the New MRCOOL Smart Controller & App!

Happy January, and welcome to 2019! More importantly, welcome to the new MRCOOL Smart Controller, the best wireless control system for any ductless mini-split heat pump system ever made (so far!).

What’s a MRCOOL Smart Controller?

The MRCOOL Smart Controller is our new wireless control system that integrates with your smartphone and/or other smart-home devices. Which ones? Right now the Smart Controller is compatible with both Alexa and Google Assistant. But more is coming! By Q3 2019, full integration with Nest thermostats should be completed.

Yeah, sure, all that compatibility is great, but what does this thing do?

Well, I’m glad you asked.

Amazing MRCOOL Smart Controller Kit Features!

  • Global Control – Control your MRCOOL air conditioner or heat pump via your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
  • Weekly Scheduling – Powerful 7 day scheduling functionality helps you schedule your air comfort as per desired settings and time.
  • Filter Maintenance Reminder – Because changing the filter is important, and you don’t need to keep forgetting.
  • Geo Fencing – Automatically turn your ductless unit on before you arrive and switch the system off automatically after you have left the premises.
  • Zone Control  – Create dedicated air comfort zones. Single touch control for all home systems by creating zones.
  • Usage Statistics – Keep track of your heating or cooling usage to control your electricity costs. Save energy, save money, live free, etc. 
  • Timeline of Actions – Check a complete timeline of actions of your AC. Check who is using your AC, what settings are being used and when.

Awesome, right?

Who wouldn’t want all those tools to get the very most out of their brand new MRCOOL ductless mini-split heat pump system? And we use that term generally, because the Smart Controller will work seamlessly with all current generation ductless mini-splits that we make. To learn more, but a new MRCOOL unit that includes the Smart Controller or buy a new Smart Controller kit from your favorite dealer!

  1. Certainly hope you provide an update link for existing wifi dongles – download and update the files on the usb key. That would be the right thing to do.

  2. Too bad i gave my nest away. I was under the impression the ability to integrate with nest wasn’t being looked at. Good to see though! Is there an indication how much and possibly a video showing replacing the current wifi dongle, on a DIY version of the MR COOL? Will the added capability be up loaded thru wifi to the new controller. How about a discount for those of use that bought the original wifi controller?

    Thanks!

    1. Integration with Nest is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, and everything looks good for it finally rolling out this year w/the new Smart Controller. We will have an install and set-up video coming soon. Yes, the Nest capability should come through as an update for the Smart Controller. As you know, we don’t sell direct, but we are talking to dealers on discounted pricing for upgrading customers.

  3. “or buy a new Smart Controller kit from your favorite dealer!” Hmmm, I just did a deep net search and found no one offering this product. I searched by dealer “Lowes” (where I bought my 18k unit) and they haven’t heard of it. Can you offer some links that we can use to buy this amazing upgrade to my existing unit?
    Thanks.

  4. Just to reconfirm. You state that this will work will ALL current units. That includes the Olympus series as well? Before I was told no wifi on that series.

    1. All newly manufactured air handlers have a docking station in them. Previous Olympus models did not all have, so they could not use a wireless module. The Smart Controller will work with 2019 Olympus units (or existing Olympus systems that have air handlers w/a docking station in the air handler).

      1. Okay, Thank you. I went ahead and ordered three of these for my Olympus multi zone system. All installed and working well. Still working out the kinks with voice control through google assistant. Also mine would not hook up 5Ghz wifi (802.11AC) it would only hook up to 2.4Ghz wifi (802.11n). Just an FYI.

  5. We need a contact number to set up our warranty. The link provided does NOT work and we’ve tried doing it on multiple devices.

    1. We migrated our server this week, so that may have caused the issue. You can call 270-366-0457 to register your warranty.
