Meet Remo, the Universal Smart Controller for Room ACs

Nature Remo transforms any window-mounted or through-the-wall air conditioner into a smart air conditioner. You can remotely turn on via smart phone, pre-set different temperatures for different times, or set the unit to automatically turn off based on the motion sensor.


What Can Remo Do?

Remo mobile app tracks your geo-location allowing us to automatically turn on your AC before you get home, and turn off your AC when nobody is present in a particular room. Remo's location awareness allows you to arrive at a cool home and at the same time you get to avoid cooling empty rooms.

What Inspires Nature to Create Remo

Nature develops solutions to create harmony between people and nature. Nature's current focus is improving residential energy management with intelligent AC control and peak energy management. 

A century ago, the Industrial Revolution radically changed the way humans interact with the earth. As the world economy grows, we are approaching the limits of natural systems to accommodate our needs. At Nature, we believe that we can deliver superior services to society and reduce stress on the environment simultaneously. In other words, we make products that improve people's lives AND the world that they live in.
