What Is a Smart Air Purifier and How Does It Work?

What Is a Smart Air Purifier?

Have you come across the terms ‘smart air purifiers’? You probably think that these are the usual home comfort equipment and the word ‘smart’ is the only thing that makes the difference. You are right. In fact, this will give you a clue about the key features that these devices contain.

By the end of this post, you will be equipped with the information you need to know about smart air purifiers- from the way they work to what makes them different from the usual devices.

What is an Air Purifier?

Air purifiers are special devices used to remove harmful airborne particles by taking in dirty air, filtering harmful particles and pumping clean air back to your home. High-quality air purifiers perform this cycle several times an hour to ensure that your home has a clean and safe indoor air.

A typical non-smart air purifier does any of these two operations:

  • Continuous Air Filtration. Just like a fan, these air purifiers continuously filter the air based on your desired air cleaning level, regardless if the air is already clean or not. In short, there is no self-detection of air quality.
  • Automatic Air Filtering. Air quality sensors are present in air purifiers with this mode. They can monitor air impurities and automatically adjust the setting to remove these particles from the air. This mode offers both energy efficiency and proficient air cleaning.

Both these devices have the same drawback- neither of these gives you feedback about the type of impurities present in your home and how often a particle enters your home. And this is what smart air purifiers perform on their behalf.
