Save Energy And Stay Cool With The World’s First Smart Fan

Save Energy And Stay Cool With The World’s First Smart Fan


May 28th, 2015

Haiku by Big Ass Fans reinvents the common notion of home ceiling fans, as it stimulates natural breeze at 40% increase in perceived cooling. Holding a top ENERGY STAR® ranking, its energy efficiency exceeds the ceiling fan testing requirements by more than 450%. With moso bamboo and matrix composite available, the Haiku’s minimalist design fits seamlessly into any setting.


Incorporated with SenseME™ Technology, the world’s first smart fan turns on and off automatically, as it detects the presence of occupants in a room, or the lack thereof. It also monitors room temperature and humidity, adjusting its speed as conditions alter. Overtime, it learns the user’s preferences and tailors itself to suit its user.


Headquartered in the United States, Big Ass Fans revolutionalised common standards of ceiling fans, creating variations from 18 inches to 24 feet in diameter. Coupled with energy efficient motors and patented sleek airfoil designs inspired by airplane wings, Big Ass Fans combine form and function to help users stay cool and comfortable, without an air-conditioner.
