In case you haven’t noticed, we’re moving towards a very smart future. Smart homes, smart cars, smart thermostats, smart you name it. Well, the time has come for ceiling fans to join the smart family. In this post we’ll talk about two companies helping us all stay cool and smart: Hunter and — ready for it? — Big Ass Fans.
If the name isn’t enough to grab your attention, let us share a few things about their products that are sure to raise both eyebrows.
Haiku Fans by Big Ass Fans
Haiku Fans are powered by SenseME technology that integrates the fans with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant. The company’s app allows customers to set comfort preferences, group multiple Haiku fans, control light levels, adjust fan speed and update product firmware. The two Haiku ceiling fan products currently available have a smooth and elegant design. Customers can choose from a range of colors and pick a premium aluminum or Moso bamboo finish. Haiku fans start at over $650 each.
Why not consider purchasing a fan from a company founded by the inventor of ceiling fans himself, John Hunter? Since the invention of the first ceiling fan in 1886, the company has prided itself on being a leader in ceiling fan innovation. Today, a number of Hunter ceiling fans can be controlled with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. In addition to their high-level of “smartness”, these ceiling fans have a clean and modern and aesthetic that is sure to appeal to design-savvy homeowners. Expect to pay anywhere from $350 to $450 for a smart ceiling fan. Depending on the blade length and width, a Hunter fan can move a range of 3,400 to 5,100 cubic feet of air per minute.
