A New HomeKit Air Purifier Is Coming Because Of Course It Is
The world of the HomeKit accessory is an interesting one. After an initial launch that saw almost nothing support it, HomeKit is now fast becoming something that everything supports since Apple made it easier to get on board. One excellent example of that is a new HomeKit-compatible air purifier that is on the horizon.
It’s called the Vovolinc PureFlow Air Purifier and it’s already available for pre-order if you have already decided that you need one in your home. You’ll need to be in specific European countries to get your hands on it, though.
If you’re in the United States, you’re going to need to wait a little while. But the good news is that a deal with a distributor has already been made. It’s just a matter of time.
According to a HomeKit News report, we can expect the purifier to sell for around $500 as and when it reaches the US of A.
It seems at least one online chain store, located in Denmark, but with regional stores in Sweden, Austria, Germany, Finland, Poland and Norway, is taking preorders, with shipping listed as 11-12 days. Proshop in all the countries listed, currently have the VAP1 listed, with the Swedish store showing the price as 4,799Kr (US$507 / UK£392 / EU€447).
For your $500, you’ll get the usual HEPA compliance as well as Siri control thanks to HomeKit. There’s a low noise mode for those who want to be able to leave it running all the time as well.
Smart Air Purifier, Extreme Low Noise: 27dB at sleep Mode, Large Clean Air Distribution: up to 100 square meters, Effective Air Purifying Capability: bi-directional airflow, True HEPA and Activated Carbon: triple filtering technologies, 5 illuminated color-coded indicator, Works with: Google Home, Amazon Alexa and Apple HomeKit.
We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled and ears open for more information about a US launch as and when it is available.
