Just in time for Spring cleaning and the return of the allergy season, Dyson, the company behind a plethora of high tech home gadgets has added a new one to its ever expanding lineup. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air pollution inside your home can be up to five times worse than outside. This makes sense when you think about the fact that the World Health Organization has determined we spend 90% of our time indoors. Because of this, you need to know about the new Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier which, as it happens, is available as of this very evening.
Fumes from cleaning products, deodorants, and scented candles are some of the most common indoor air pollutants, according to the EPA. Others include gases from heating and cooking, pollen, mold, allergens from animals, pet hair, and a bevy of other nasty little things that we’d all be better off not repeatedly sucking into our lungs. Company founder, James Dyson puts it this way: “We think it is polluted outside of our homes, but the air inside can be far worse. Dyson engineers focused on developing a purifier that automatically removes ultrafine allergens, odors and pollutants from the indoor air, feeding real time air quality data back to you.”
Did you catch that last part? The part about “feeding real time air quality data back to you?” Yep, you guessed it, the Link part of the Dyson Pure Cool Link indicates that this latest purifier is app-connected, intelligent, and can provide information as to the air quality of your home while simultaneously removing the pollutants it detects.
Dyson assembled a team of 50 software and mechanical engineers to make the invisible pollutants in your home visible at the tap of a finger. The new Dyson Link App, available for iOS and Android, will make it possible for users to monitor indoor air quality remotely via the app. This makes it possible to regulate indoor air quality remotely as well as set new air quality targets before ‘very poor’ levels are reached. Air quality history can also be tracked, showing peak pollution times which can help you decide the best times to run the purifier if it is not already set to auto mode.
In addition to the real-time monitoring of indoor air quality, Dyson engineers wanted users to gain live insights into outdoor air quality, as well. By working with the air quality data analytics company, BreezoMeter, Dyson engineers developed the Dyson Link App to allow Dyson owners to keep an eye on the live outdoor air quality in a location of their choice. Pretty cool!
The Pure Cool Link purifier features Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier technology and an energy efficient DC motor to quickly and quietly draw in air, filter it and then distribute the cleaned air back into the room. It also features an automatic night-time mode: Dyson purifiers come with a night-time auto mode. The machine will continue to monitor and respond to air quality while you sleep but it will only use the quietest settings and dim the LED display, so you won’t be disturbed.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan is available as a tower or desk purifier. The tower is engineered to project purified air across larger spaces and is suitable for floor placement. The desk is suitable for desks and worktops, and is engineered for smaller rooms, with a tilt function for targeting purified airflow.
