Whether you have a freon aversion or simply prefer breeze-based cooling (manufactured or otherwise) to air-conditioned climate, there’s no shortage of fan solutions for the smart home.
As the top-tier of smart fan tech, the Haiku is as elegant and intuitive as its manufacturer, Big Ass Fans, is unfortunately named.
While the Haiku possesses a sleek and smart appearance—resembling something like a retro-futuristic airplane blade—its real genius is in what it can do. The Wi-Fi-enabled fan offers myriad control options. Users can control and schedule the fan via their smartphone or by voice, in conjunction with Amazon Alexa products—or owners can go completely switch/phone/voice-free, allowing the Haiku to automatically activate when it detects motion in a room. The Haiku can also be fully integrated with smart home climate control systems like the Nest thermostat, enabling homeowners to take a hands-off approach to climate cooling—and energy efficiency. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, the Haiku also comes with a “Whoosh® Mode” that replicates natural breezes via varying fan speeds, effectively bringing the outdoors inside in the best way possible.
The Haiku is available in a wide variety of colors for $995.

Offering four fashionable styles and a host of features, Hunter’s line of SIMPLEconnect fans are a smart choice for the smart home. Wi-Fi-enabled and ready to integrate with any automated home thermostat system, SIMPLEconnect fans also work with the three major smart home hub services—Apple Homekit, Amazon Alexa, Google system—so regardless of your phone or voice-control product preference, you’ll be able to take full advantage of SIMPLEconnect’s control options. In addition to allowing fan scheduling from anywhere on the globe, SIMPLEconnect’s universal integration approach also allows owners to easily establish coordinated smart home routines—turning fans off when a door is locked or on when a smoke alarm is detected, for example. Better still, you can leverage location-based triggers, sending your fans spinning when they detect that you’ve pulled into the driveway.
Hunter SIMPLEconnect fans are available from $299 to $399 depending on style.
Dyson Pure Cool Link
The Dyson Pure Cool Link is a smart standing fan option for the home that can’t have—or doesn’t want—ceiling fans. Users can control the Dyson Pure Cool Link entirely from their smartphones—setting on demand, scheduling or activating when certain humidity or temperature levels are reached. The device also includes a “night mode” with a dimmer light setting and less audible fan noises for the those who like their evenings cool, quiet and breezy. Best of all, however, is that the Cool Link packs a powerful bonus feature—air purification. The Dyson can purify when commanded, or can be set to automatically begin purifying when it detects a drop in air quality and will keep you apprised as to the quality of the air in your home via the same app you use to control the device.
Dyson Pure Cool Link is available for $399 to $549, depending on style.
Say you’re perfectly pleased with your current ceiling fan situation—perhaps you have the Savoy House Taurus Polished Chrome Fandelier—but you would like to enjoy some of those sweet smart fan features. Enter the Bond Ceiling Fan Controller. This clever, little, Wi-Fi-enabled device allows you to turn any remote-controlled fan into a smart fan by rebroadcasting the IR and RF signals from your fan’s remote control. With Bond, users can control up to six fans via smartphone or voice control (Alexa, Google Home) and integrate their home’s fans with compatible thermostat products like Nest or Honeywell, scheduling fans to start spinning as soon as certain temperature is hit.
The Bond Ceiling Fan Controller is available for $99.
