The Aros is is an 8,000 BTU AC unit, good to cool a space of about 350 square feet.

The exterior of the unit isn't quite as polished as the front.

The ventilation flaps on the side of the Aros look good, but they don't fit quite as snug as traditional accordion-style flaps.

The face of the Aros features touch controls with LED indicators.

LEDs will also display the current temperature of the room.

Like other Quirky products, you'll download the Wink app, then have it flash a light pattern into the unit's home sensor to connect it to your Wi-Fi network.

This isn't nearly as complicated as it sounds -- the Wink app walks you through the entire process, step by step.

In the Wink app, you'll have basic remote control over your Aros, along with access to smart features capable of things like monitoring when you come and go or tracking your energy usage.

The Aros retails for $300, which is a pretty reasonable price point, given that comparable non-connected 8,000 BTU air conditioners cost about the same amount.
