Claims

1. An air-conditioning management system comprising:
at least one air-conditioning apparatus;
a centralized monitoring apparatus comprising a first processor and a memory, the first processor is configured to perform centralized management of the at least one air-conditioning apparatus; and
an information processing terminal connectable to the centralized monitoring apparatus via a communication line,
the information processing terminal comprising a second processor and a schedule information management unit, the second processor is configured to
store, in a schedule information management unit, a plurality of items of the schedule information of the at least one air-conditioning apparatus input by a user, wherein the schedule information in the schedule information management unit covers a plurality of time periods,
select, from the plurality of items of the schedule information stored in the schedule information management unit, schedule information to be transmitted to the at least one air-conditioning apparatus, wherein the selected schedule information is selected to cover less than all of the plurality of time periods, and
transmit the selected schedule information, as a periodic scheduled process, to the centralized monitoring apparatus,
the first processor of the centralized monitoring apparatus is further configured to
acquire the selected schedule information transmitted from the information processing terminal via the communication line, wherein the centralized monitoring apparatus receives and stores only a subset of the schedule information stored in the information processing terminal,
transmit the acquired selected schedule information to the at least one air-conditioning apparatus and
cause the air-conditioning apparatus to self-operate according to the selected schedule information.
2. The air-conditioning management system of claim 1, wherein the information processing terminal selects, from the plurality of items of the schedule information stored in the schedule information management unit, at least schedule information for a next day, and transmits the selected schedule information to the centralized monitoring apparatus,
wherein the first processor of centralized monitoring apparatus is further configured to
store, in the memory, the schedule information for the next day transmitted from the information processing terminal via the communication line,
read the schedule information for the next day from the memory, and
transmit to the at least one air-conditioning apparatus the schedule information for the next day, and
wherein the at least one air-conditioning apparatus receives the schedule information for the next day transmitted from the centralized monitoring apparatus, and performs self operation control on a day following a day of the reception in accordance with the received schedule information.
3. The air-conditioning management system of claim 2,
wherein the second processor of the information processing terminal is further configured to transmit every day the schedule information for the next day and a day after next to the centralized monitoring apparatus, and the first processor of the centralized monitoring apparatus is further configured to perform every day a process of storing in the memory the schedule information for the next day and the day after next transmitted from the information processing terminal, and
wherein the first processor of the centralized monitoring apparatus is further configured to:
when the first processor fails to acquire the schedule information for the next day and the day after next from the information processing terminal, read the schedule information corresponding to the schedule information for the next day from the schedule information acquired by a preceding day and stored in the memory, and
transmit the read schedule information to the at least one air-conditioning apparatus.
4. The air-conditioning management system of claim 2,
wherein the first processor of the centralized monitoring apparatus is further configured to:
when the first processor fails to acquire the schedule information transmitted from the information processing terminal and does not have the schedule information for the next day in the memory, transmit previously held base schedule information specifying basic schedule contents to the at least one air-conditioning apparatus as the schedule information for the next day.
5. The air-conditioning management system of claim 1, wherein when the at least one air-conditioning apparatus fails to acquire the schedule information for the next day transmitted from the centralized monitoring apparatus, the at least one air-conditioning apparatus performs the self operation control on a day following a day of the failure in accordance with previously held base schedule information specifying basic schedule contents.
6. The air-conditioning management system of claim 1, wherein the schedule information includes information that relates to a schedule for the at least one air-conditioning apparatus, the information that relates to a schedule for the at least one air-conditioning apparatus including at least one item of information on
a start time of one of a heating operation and a cooling operation,
a stop time of one of a heating operation and a cooling operation, and
an execution timing of a defrosting operation.
7. The air-conditioning management system of claim 1,
wherein the second processor of the information processing terminal is further configured select the schedule information to cover a predetermined period of time,
at a first preset scheduled time transmit the selected schedule information to the centralized monitoring apparatus.
8. The air-conditioning management system of claim 7,
wherein the first processor of the centralized monitoring apparatus is further configured to
at a second preset scheduled time which is after the first preset scheduled time, transmit the acquired selected schedule information to the at least one air-conditioning apparatus.
