Airscape Whole House Fan Controller
By Scott Lucas
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
With the Porchdog app for Airscape fans, you can use your iPhone or iPad to control select Airspace whole-house fans anywhere in your home. One-click convenience lets you quickly set the fan speed and timer to your precise specifications.
Built-in notifications let you know when you need to open more windows for optimal fan performance, or close windows if it's too hot or cold outside for fan use. On-screen temperature displays give you the information you need to decide exactly how to use your fan.
The app also features a "detail" tab that provides a full readout of fan settings and parameters to give you access to all the information the fan's network interface provides.
Setup is easy and fast. You can scan your network for connected fans and quickly select your fan without knowing the fan's network address in advance. If you have more than one fan in your home, this feature makes it simple to connect to the fan you wish to control.
The following Airspace fans are supported (the fan must support Airscape's 2nd Gen Controls):
* 1.0 WHF
* 1.7 WHF
* 2.5e WHF
* 3.5e WHF
* 4.4e WHF
* 5.0e WHF
Please be aware of the following app limitations:
* Fan control is only possible when the fan and iPhone/iPad are BOTH connected to the same local-area network. These fans do not support remote operation.
* Optional fan capabilities are required for some features to work. Specifically, the Airscape "Safe Speed Kit" is required to detect airflow limitations due to closed windows, and the Indoor/Outdoor temperature sensor package is required to detect indoor temperatures (the app can use a web service to detect outdoor temperatures).

What's New in Version 1.1 (2)
I've updated the app to include the new 2017 fans from Airscape! Now supported:
These new fans have a 10-step adjustment control.
Please contact the developer if the app's not working as you expect.
