One Smart Ass™ Fan
You never think about comfort until you’re uncomfortable. Haiku with SenseME is the first fan to think and make decisions to keep you comfortable automatically.

Controlled by Smartphone
Haiku with SenseME, which begins shipping later this summer, is the first fan controllable by a smartphone app. Use the app to set schedules for both the fan and light or select from several unique control modes. 

Fan on a Mission
The introduction of Haiku with SenseME technology marks an evolution for Big Ass Fans, which, for the past 15 years, has engineered solutions that make people more comfortable in big spaces, everywhere from factories and distribution centers to churches and restaurants. Now Big Ass Fans brings its industrial design and engineering into the home with one goal: making comfort simple.
