When you add a smart plug to your room or window air conditioner, you gain convenience and control. You can change the temperature settings from any web-based device, such as a smart phone. No more worries about leaving the air conditioner on when you leave home.
With SmartPREP, you receive a free smart plug for each air conditioner in your home. Plus, you earn $20 in cash rewards. You may even save energy—and money—by eliminating excess use.
Enrollment is easy:
