Coin Timer Unit For Air Conditioner?


Recommended Posts

Not sure what forum to ask this in.... Anyone have any idea about how to install a coin operated aircon? Or add a coin timer to existing aircon? And where to buy the required gear? I'm in upper Sukhumvit area of Bangkok. (Would be for approx 40sqm fitness room.) Thx

For the fitness room user? They put money in and by the time the room has cooled down they have finished! 

The next guy doesn't need to insert money?

 

Above is correct use the mechanism from a laundry machine. But not something you will be able to buy on-line?

Unit for washing machine: Insert (say) 30 baht. Machine comes on and completes one cycle. 

What I need is this: Insert (say) 10 baht; aircon runs for 10 minutes. 20 baht; 20 minutes. Etc.

 

After figuring out how to achieve this, I plan to proposition my landlord re: installing an aircon in my building's fitness room. It currently has no aircon, so it too hot most of the time to work out in. (I might pay half installation cost. Cheaper and more convenient for me over the long run that a fitness club; most of which play hideous music, etc.)

Well, thats for a washing machine. Can't see how that would work with an aircon.

 

Do you even have a clue how a coin-operated switch/timer works?

 

Some budget hotels will require the door keycard or keychain fob be placed in a provided wall holder to activate power to the room (preventing guests from leaving AirCon going while they're out of the room).

The coin units for *washers* are not timers; just ON switches. The units on *driers* ARE timers. (See my recent post re: finding them on Aliexpress.)

If the OP cares to browse Lazada there are many variations on the same theme.

 

BUT if you dont know what you are doing, get hold of someone qualified to do what you propose and dont "wing it".
