When it comes to keeping the air in our home pure and clean, I have several things working against me. For one, I live in Austin, TX – one of the allergy capitals of the world. Two, I have a dog. Hello lovely pet dander. And three, we live in a world with airborne allergens and that’s just the way it is. How can you keep the air inside your home healthier for your family? With an air purifier (Isn’t my model cute?).
I recently teamed up with Holmes to test out the Holmes® Smart Air Purifier. I don’t often do just pure product reviews, but I have been so incredibly impressed with this product I had to tell you about it. I’ve heard about air purifiers and thought they sounded pretty cool, but not something I really needed. Until my husband started suffering from horrible allergies and asthma. Three sinus surgeries later and you can bet I’ll do anything I can to keep the air in our home as healthy for him as possible.
Setting Up Your Holmes Smart Air Purifier
Let’s start with how easy it was to set this up. In fact, I didn’t even set it up. The box arrived on my doorstep and my 15 and 11 year old sons set it up from start to finish. I was cooking dinner. Now if I can just get them to cook dinner while I sit on the couch with my feet up. Once step at a time right? To set up, you open the front cover and attach the two replaceable True HEPA Allergen-Remover filters.
Next, it’s time to download the WeMo app. Again, this was very self-explanatory on how to set it up and within minutes, we were running and operating our air purifier from my iPhone.
The WeMo app allows you to control your air purifier from any room of your home, using your smart device. The other night I was laying in bed scrolling through Pinterest and remembered I wanted to set a schedule for the air purifier. So I opened the app, set up a schedule and was good to go. You can turn it on and off, adjust settings and check air quality. The WeMo app will also alert you when it’s time to change the air filters and you just order them straight from your smart device. This, my friends, is your home + technology at its finest.
But Does It Work?
Purifying the air in your home sounds great and all that jazz, but you want to know if it really works right? I can say without a doubt that I believe it does. I’ve not only noticed less dust on the surfaces of my furniture, but the air in our smells and feels cleaner. I usually have to dust every other day, but I went five days without having to dust my living room – which is filled with black furniture. When it’s dusty, me and every visitor in my home can tell. One of the downfalls of black furniture, but I still love decorating with it!
Here’s a handy dandy video I shot talking about the Holmes® Smart Air Purifier:
My “WeMoment” & A Giveaway
Being able to operate our air purifier from my device is a WeMoment for me. What’s a “WeMoment” you ask? It’s that feeling of relief in being able to use technology to manage your home. Whether you’re operating an air purifier, your crockpot or a number of other WeMo-enabled smart devices, combining technology and managing your home is amazing.
Speaking of amazing? How would you like the chance to win your very own Holmes® Smart Air Purifier with WeMo®? To enter, please comment via the comment section and tell me this: “What’s something in your home you would love to operate via your smart device, giving you your own little WeMoment?” For me, it would be my dishwasher because I ALWAYS seem to forget to start it until after I’m in bed.
