Flexible Air-Conditioner Control With BlueCool Connect from Webasto

Gilching – August 10, 2021 – The clearly designed and customizable BlueCool Connect app from Webasto now controls BlueCool air conditioners regardless of their location. This allows skippers to set a comfortable on-board temperature in advance via smartphone, tablet or PC with individual control for each room. This means you commence your voyage in relaxingly cool spaces right from the start – even when ambient temperatures are high or the boat gets direct sunlight.

The app’s user interface is clearly designed. Users can assign a unique name to each cabin. There is a live display of current room temperatures. With just a few clicks, temperature settings and blower levels in the individual cabins are directly adjusted as desired or pre-programmed up to 24 hours in advance. For on-board operation the BlueCool Connect control unit can also be connected to existing multifunction displays, like all of the Garmin OneHelm systems.

The app is connected locally via an on-board WiFi Direct signal, or via the mobile network using the BlueCool Connect control unit’s integrated SIM card. Practical and time-saving: Should a BlueCool air conditioner ever malfunction, remote technical maintenance by customer service is possible via the mobile connection.

Those who already own one or more BlueCool series air conditioner(s) can easily have the BlueCool Connect control unit retrofitted. The app itself is free. For the first year, the cost of the data connection is included in the purchase price; from the second year, charges will apply.
