Well, there are two models of the Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan, both of which come in blue or white colour options.
Though the Pure Cool Link isn’t the first connected air purifier on the market, it represents Dyson’s first ever “connected” product in the USA and only its second foray into the so-called “Internet of Things (IoT)” following its robotic vacuum cleaner launch in Japan previous year.
If the air quality is approaching anything less than desirable, the fan can communicate with your phone as long as it has a Wi-fi connection, and you can change whether the fan runs or how high it runs right from your phone.
Dyson has revealed its newest technology, the Dyson Pure Cool Link, an air purifier which it claims will remove 99.95pc of indoor allergens and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns from the air.
According to Dyson, the inside of a home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside, something which the company is keen to correct. This is where allergens are captured and then clean and cool air is pushed back out into your room through the fan.
The fan could be particularly useful for allergy sufferers and has a Night Mode setting to make it quieter and dim the LED display when users are trying to sleep.
Open a window or door at home, and you risk letting in more than fresh air-bugs, birds, and maybe even local wildlife can sneak into your house. However another report said the health effects of volatile organic compounds from air fresheners, deodorants and cleaning products were “generally minor”.
With Dyson’s Link app, you’re supposed to be able to check in on indoor and outdoor air quality at a glance.
The devices can apparently filter the air in a room in half and hour to an hour it can also be used to monitor air quality around your home. The Link system does not now integrate with other IoT systems such as Samsung’s SmartThings hub or Apple’s HomeKit, however.
More interestingly though, the app will also keep track of air quality levels, letting you see in real time how toxic your ambient air may be (and what the Dyson Pure Cool Link is doing to clean it up). The same fan, minus the app connectivity, is available through Dyson for the same price.
