Hunter Fan Company recently debuted two Wi-Fi enabled ceiling fans at CES in Las Vegas. The new offerings received a CES 2016 Editors’ Choice Award by Reviewed.com/USA Today.
According to the company, Hunter’s new Symphony and Signal ceiling fans boast support for Apple HomeKit technology and connect to a home’s Wi-Fi network to create an automated suite of comfort, security and energy efficiency.
“Hunter Fan has a 130-year legacy of ceaseless innovation, and we’re honored that our latest designs were recognized with a CES 2016 Editors’ Choice Award,” said Hunter Fan CEO, John Alexander. “Our collaboration with Apple and launch of the first affordable Wi-Fi-enabled ceiling fans are testaments to our rich heritage.”
Apple HomeKit technology allows users to control each fan, or a group of fans, using Siri on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple Watch. Users can create custom scenes with other HomeKit-enabled products to automatically turn on the fan’s light, lock the doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat to the desired temperature in one step.
Chosen from hundreds of new products, the company said, the CES Editor’s Choice Awards honor products that are considered innovative in their technology, value and design. The fans were developed in collaboration with Ayla Networks and Marvell Technology Group Ltd.
Symphony retails at $329 while Signal retails at $379. Both fans are available in spring 2016.
