One of the most exciting tech developments was the introduction of Apple Homekit. Homekit allows users to control their home through voice activation and mobile devices.

But do Dyson Fans work with Homekit?

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

When you set up any of your Nest devices with Homekit using Homebridge, the following products will work:

Dyson Tower Fan: This Dyson Cool fan is a long oval-shaped fan that produces plenty of airflow per minute (CFM) and runs relatively quietly. This fan is also highly customizable, allowing you to adjust the height, angle, speed, oscillation, brightness, and more. This is a highly versatile fan that is well suited for indoor use. It is sometimes more expensive than other traditional style fans, but it has numerous features that you can customize to fit your personal needs.

Dyson Air Purifier: This is a mighty air purifier that removes allergens from the air. It comes equipped with a filter that removes 99.95% of allergens from the air, including pollen, pet dander, and smoke particles. It manages to do this with many fewer moving parts than other air purifiers, which require little to no maintenance to keep it running efficiently and effectively.

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:

  1. Download Homebridge

    You can find it for free at homebridge.io.

  2. Install and open the Homebridge software program.

  3. Look at the menu section of the dashboard and click the “Plugins” option.

  4. Search for the Dyson Fan plugin.

  5. Click the install link to install the plugin.

  6. 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.

  7. Restart Homebridge.

    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.

Conclusion

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.
