Big Ass Fans’ Haiku Adds Google Assistant Voice Control

Comfort control just got easier for consumers as Google Home devices will soon offer voice control of ceiling fans from Haiku® by Big Ass Fans®.

Google Assistant voice commands will allow users hands-free control of connected Haiku. Spoken commands include turning the fan on and off and adjusting both fan speed and overhead light intensity.

Haiku ceiling fans feature built-in temperature, humidity and occupancy sensors for automatic speed adjustment as environmental conditions change.

New Google Assistant commands allow for easier manual overrides when a setting change is desired. Haiku owners will now be able to increase fan speed after a jog to get extra airflow or dim the optional LED light to watch TV without pressing a single button.

Voice control via Google Assistant is the latest example of Haiku’s continued industry leadership. Big Ass Fans introduced Haiku with SenseME® - the world’s first connected, smart
ceiling fan-in 2014 and continues to develop partner integrations and release new features aimed at helping homeowners stay comfortable and save energy year-round.

“Consumers want the latest and greatest in the tech world, and as the leader in air-movement tech, we want control to be better than at the fingertips,” said Drew Zande, Big Ass Fans product manager. “It’s truly hands-free comfort. Our fans don’t have pull chains for a reason. Forget the switch. Forget hassle. Forget discomfort. Forget inconvenience.”

The new Google Assistant commands work with all current model Haiku ceiling fans, including the Haiku L, equipped with optional Wi-Fi module, as well as previous model Haiku fans with existing SenseME technology.
