The app lets you turn the fan and the light on and off and lets you control the speed and intensity of each. There is a short lag between making the adjustments but it isn’t bad once you realize it takes a second for the command to go from your phone to the wireless connection and, finally, to the fan.
The blue ring on the base of the fan lets you know it is getting a command. It also looks cool!
The app also lets you schedule events so that, for example, you can have the light come on or turn off at preset times. This is great if you are traveling and want the house to appear occupied.
The app also lets you activate the fan’s “Woosh” functionality. This mode varies the speed of the fan and simulates and natural breeze. It’s pretty awesome.
In the Settings window, you can connect new devices, see various rooms and devices, connect the fan to a number of smart thermostats (unfortunately the one I have here for review is not among them yet) and do a firmware update when one becomes available. You can also use the ap to log into the Haiku Home Account. This is key for connecting the fan to an Amazon Echo but that will be part two of this review.
This fan is clearly the Maserati of ceiling fans. And that’s the case even with this being the lowest end model in the Haiku line! I absolutely love it! Here’s my video look at the Haiku Series L fan:
