These days you rarely forget your phone when you leave the house, but did you remember to turn your AC off before you left for work, a business trip or vacation? Or was today simply really hot or extremely cold outside. You know your system is set for a normal day but what is normal!? Simply open your GE SmartHQ, turn your system on or off, re-set the temperature, whatever you need to walk into a more comfortable space! Now you can turn your AC on or off remotely, with the GE SmartHQ wireless device. Control of your GE Caliber or Altitude Series duct-free mini-split system no matter where you are as long as you have a wireless connection!
Connecting is easy - simply download the app and it will walk you through the connection procedure. GE SmartHQ is a free smartphone app. And, yes, either an iPhone or Android are compatible. It is also compatible across many GE appliances and works with Alexa and Google Assistant.
Simply download and install the app to your phone and register, accept terms and conditions, etc and then add the module to your indoor unit. Adding the module is as simple as opening up your indoor wall unit and inserting it into the dongle slot provided. You will need one module for each indoor unit you may want to control. For example, if you have a more than one system in your home, you will need a module for each system.
There are many functions available to you with the QAWF01A WiFi module. In addition to temperature, mode and fan adjustments, you can set or change weekly cooling and heating schedules, as well as get notifications related to normal user maintenance.
Once everything is installed, simply follow the prompts on your phone to finalize the pairing. You must complete your initial set up at home through your home's wireless connection.
