  First, as shown in the figure, the mobile phone terminal 10 is under the control of the main control unit 51 in response to the user US performing an operation for starting the device control program in step S1. Then, the device control program is started.

  Subsequently, in step S <b> 2, the mobile phone terminal 10 displays a predetermined screen for authentication on the display unit 66 or outputs a predetermined voice message via the speaker 64 under the control of the control unit 105. The user US is prompted to perform an authentication operation, and the authentication unit 108 authenticates the user US. Here, when it is determined that the user US is an unauthorized person who does not have the authority to control the air conditioner 20 as a result of the authentication, the mobile phone terminal 10 ends the series of processes as it is. On the other hand, if it is determined that the user US is a valid person having the authority to control the air conditioner 20 as a result of the authentication, the mobile phone terminal 10 performs step S3 to control the air conditioner 20. The process is transferred to.

  Subsequently, in step S <b> 3, the cellular phone terminal 10 displays a predetermined screen for inputting or selecting, for example, the manufacturer name or model number of the air conditioner 20 on the display unit 66 under the control of the control unit 105. Or by outputting a predetermined voice message via the speaker 64, the user US inputs or selects the manufacturer name or model number of the air conditioner 20, and sets the air conditioner 20 as a control target device. . The cellular phone terminal 10 registers the air conditioner 20 as a control target device in advance, and inquires of the user US whether or not to control the air conditioner 20, so that the air conditioner 20 is controlled. You may make it set as.

  Subsequently, in step S <b> 4, the mobile phone terminal 10 activates the temperature sensor 61 a under the control of the control unit 105 to cause the user US to detect its body temperature, and the biometric information acquisition unit 101 detects the body temperature. To obtain biometric information. Further, in step S5, the mobile phone terminal 10 activates the temperature sensor 61a and the humidity sensor 61b under the control of the control unit 105 to cause the user US to detect the temperature and humidity in the surrounding environment, and the temperature And the humidity are acquired as ambient environment information by the ambient environment information acquisition unit 102. Note that the temperature of the room in which the air conditioner 20 is installed is usually lower as it is closer to the floor than the ceiling. Therefore, the temperature setting is preferably based on the temperature near the floor surface where the temperature tends to be the lowest among the locations where the user US is located from the viewpoint of the convenience of the user US. Therefore, the user US grasps the mobile phone terminal 10 at a location where the body temperature can be measured, such as his / her finger or ear, and performs an operation of measuring his / her body temperature as biometric information. It is desirable to perform the operation of placing the machine 10 at his / her feet and measure the temperature and humidity as ambient environment information in that state.

  Subsequently, in step S <b> 6, the mobile phone terminal 10 displays a predetermined screen for inputting subjective information on the display unit 66 under the control of the control unit 105, or a predetermined screen via the speaker 64. Subjective information is input to the subjective information input unit 103 by outputting a voice message or the like. The input here includes allowing the user US to select arbitrary information from predetermined subjective information.

  Subsequently, in step S <b> 7, the cellular phone terminal 10 determines whether or not specific information and / or past biological information of the user US is stored in the storage unit 104 under the control of the control unit 105.

Specifically, the mobile phone terminal 10 determines the optimum setting control content as follows.

  In general, the sensation of temperature that humans feel, that is, the sensory temperature, is generated not only from the temperature of the surrounding environment, but also from the humidity in the surrounding environment, the velocity of the airflow in the surrounding environment, and the materials such as the walls and ceiling This is a result of comprehensively determining the influence of radiant heat, etc., and also taking into account the noise, color, brightness, etc. in the surrounding environment. Therefore, when determining the optimum setting control content of the air conditioner 20, it is necessary to comprehensively consider these various pieces of information. Here, the average comfortable temperature and humidity for Japanese people are 18 to 20 ° C. in winter, 40 to 50% in humidity, and 21 to 20 in summer. It is said that the temperature is 25 ° C. and the humidity is 50% to 60%. In addition, the human body is constantly radiating body temperature from the body, and the smaller the difference in the amount of heat from the wall, ceiling, etc. in the surrounding environment that occurs during such heat radiation, the more comfortable the person can get. Furthermore, the body temperature is also greatly affected by radiant heat, and is generally calculated as body temperature = (room temperature + radiant temperature) / 2. That is, when the room temperature is 35 ° C. and the temperature of the wall or the like in the surrounding environment is 25 ° C., the body temperature is 30 ° C., and is actually a temperature obtained by adding the body temperature to this temperature. Therefore, humans can hardly feel warmth even if the temperature of the surrounding environment is increased because cold radiation occurs and heat is dissipated from the body when the surface temperature of the wall is low. When the surface temperature is high, for example, warm radiation occurs, and the temperature is felt high even if the ambient temperature is low.

  Here, the cellular phone terminal 10 obtains objective information such as biometric information and ambient environment information by the biometric information acquisition unit 101 and the ambient environment information acquisition unit 102, and the user via the subjective information input unit 103. By inputting information such as “hot” and “cold” as subjective information that the US feels subjectively and physiologically, it is possible to acquire information on radiant heat. Therefore, the mobile phone terminal 10 executes a predetermined calculation based on the above-described knowledge about the temperature under the control of the control unit 105, and the sensible temperature and humidity of the user US become the above-described comfortable temperature and humidity. Thus, the optimum setting control content of the air conditioner 20 is determined. In addition, the mobile phone terminal 10 also inputs information on noise, color, brightness, etc. in the surrounding environment as necessary, and further stores specific information read from the storage unit 104 and / or past biological information. By taking this into account, it is possible to determine the setting control contents that are more in line with the state of the user US.

  When the mobile phone terminal 10 determines the setting control content suitable for the user US in this way, in step S10, the control signal including the setting control content is generated under the control of the control unit 105. While transmitting to the air conditioner 20 via the transmission part 106, the necessity of the setting of the present air conditioner 20 is alert | reported via the alerting | reporting part 107 as needed. Then, the mobile phone terminal 10 stores the biometric information acquired in step S4 in the storage unit 104 so that it can be used in the next process, and ends the series of processes.
