Imagine your fan turning off and your light turning on in the morning as your alarm goes off to wake you up. If you have an iPhone, that life can be your reality. For a fan company known by its quality for over 130 years, Hunter is stepping out in front of the competition with SimpleConnect, the first smart ceiling fan with Apple HomeKit integration.
The importance of pairing with Apple for HomeKit integration is the ease and convenience. SimpleConnect comes equip with a built-in LED light that can be adjusted by using an Apple product. The fan speed can also be adjusted. Whether you prefer a light breeze or an immediate chill, the SimpleConnect’s motor always manages to remain extremely quiet. For someone who enjoys a fan while in bed but gets too cold at night, you are able to set a timer for the fan to turn on or off. Like most smart lights, you are able to set a timer for that as well.
Using the app, you can adjust the speed of the fan between 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100%. You can also control the brightness of the light between 10 levels and even the direction of the airflow. You can customize your fan based on the behaviors that you regularly exhibit, such as when to turn off or turn on the light and fan. While the app is extremely user friendly, simply instructing Siri with your preferences is arguably the simplest method. Any Apple product can control your fan however, such as an iPad or even an Apple Watch. If you prefer not to use an Apple product, the SimpleConnect comes with a remote.
Thankfully, installing the SimpleConnect is surprisingly easy. By removing your previous ceiling fan, you can simply install the SimpleConnect to the mount that is already there.
Personally, I enjoy sleeping with the fan on and the light off so my room is cool and dark. In the mornings however, it is too cool and dark to get out of bed easily. With all of our technological advancements, there should be no reason to live without the ceiling fan paired and working with the alarm for the morning. Hunter didn’t invent the Smart Fan but they did pair it with Apple and HomeKit to make everyone’s life so much more simple with SimpleConnect.
