Are Dyson Fans Compatible With Apple Homekit?
Yes, you can make Dyson Fans compatible with Homekit. However, since they are not natively compatible, you will need to use Homebridge to set it up and work properly.
What Is A Dyson Fan?
Dyson Fans are high-quality fans known for being powerful while being very quiet. They have various features for superior control, including air multiplier technology. They are also compatible with several smart home systems like Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Home Assistant.
Dyson Fan Devices You Can Control With Homekit
So you’re setting up your Nest gear with Homekit and Homebridge, awesome! You’ll be glad to know that the following goodies will work with this setup:
Dyson Tower Fan (available here): This fan is the real deal, bro. It’s an oval shape that pumps out plenty of air and runs quietly. Plus, you can customize the heck out of it – adjust the height, angle, speed, oscillation, brightness, and more. It’s a bit pricier than other traditional fans, but with all the customization options, it’s worth it.
Dyson Air Purifier (available here): This air purifier is a boss. It’s got a filter that nabs 99.95% of allergens from the air – pollen, pet dander, smoke particles, you name it. And it does all this with fewer moving parts than other air purifiers, so you won’t have to worry about maintenance and keeping it running like a champ.
How To Add A Dyson Fan To Apple Homekit
If you are ready to set up Homekit with your Nest device using Homebridge, follow the instructions below:
You can find it for free at homebridge.io.
Install and open the Homebridge software program.
Search for the Dyson Fan plugin.
Configure the plugin.
This screen will automatically be displayed after it is installed. You will be asked to give it a unique name and other settings.
You can easily do this by clicking the restart button on the top right of the dashboard screen.
After restarting, the settings you configured will take effect automatically. You can now control your connected device with Siri or a mobile Apple device.
Setting up Dyson Fan with Homekit is a quick process you can do in just a few minutes using the steps above. Once it is set up, you can use your iOS mobile device to control your connected device using Siri shortcuts and voice commands or the free Apple application for iOS called “Home.”
Alternatively, you can try setting it up using the Dyson Link app, but I love the Homebridge option better because I am more used to it.
