Big Ass Fans, a ceiling fan company, just unveiled its latest innovation: the Haiku SenseMe Smart Fan. The fan is following the path of many home amenity systems by linking up to our smart devices. Many air conditioning and home security systems have already adapted to being a part of our hand-held devices, but this ceiling fan is the first of its kind.
Thanks to an on-board computer and various sensors, the fan can adjust its speed and light accordingly. It can also learn your preferred temperatures and schedule through its accompanying app.
You can forget about pesky switches, remotes -- that always seem to go missing -- and pull chains, because the SenseME fan is so smart it can detect when you enter or leave a room; it will turn on and off all on its own.
