Smart, Automated and Modern: the Haiku SenseME

The Ceiling Fan Enters the Digital Age with Sensory Technology

Smart home automation is no longer a quirky phase of the 1950s. You can control the lighting, temperature and a plethora of appliances in your home from your smartphone or tablet. Now add the humble ceiling fan to that growing list. The Haiku SenseME by Big Ass Fans promises to revolutionize the ceiling fan with built-in occupancy and temperature sensors.

Haiku SenseMe Ceiling Fan

The Haiku SenseMe is one of the most unique ceiling fans in the market because it adapts to your unique behavior and environment. The innovative SenseME technology detects when you enter or exit a room and turns the fan on and off automatically. The device also monitors the room’s temperature and automatically adjusts the fan’s speed when there's a change in temperature and humidity. The Smart Mode learns your preferences and automatically adjusts the speed to what you find most comfortable.
