Smart home devices that think for themselves

It’s a long-held belief among technology CEOs that the most successful technologies are ones you don’t even know are there. Devices should integrate seamlessly into life; they should disappear; they should “just work,” without any fiddling or fumbling. Now, as tech giants turn their attention to artificial intelligence, smart homes, and the intersection of the two, we’re starting to see the future begin to take shape.

There’s a growing number of smart-home and home-automation products that, once set up, more or less take care of themselves. Connected thermostats, such as the Nest Learning Thermostat and Honeywell Lyric, kicked off the trend; the devices use algorithms to automatically adjust a home’s heating and cooling based on a family’s presence and usage patterns. Yet, as is oft pointed out, smart homes still aren’t necessarily quite as easy-to-use on the large scale.

Intelligent features like Airmega’s Smart Mode help fill in the ease-smarts gap. The Smart (Auto) Mode takes air-quality monitoring and control completely off the user’s hands. This mode relies on onboard dust sensors to monitor the cleanliness of the air, and dynamically selects the fan speed accordingly. In Smart (Eco) Mode, the Airmega will stop the fan if the air is clean for 10 minutes and only reactivate it if quality dips. Similarly, in Smart (Sleep) Mode, a light sensor signals the purifier to reduce noise and power consumption at night — assuming air quality readings are still clear. Of course, you could control Airmega manually, but you have other things to think about.

Smart-home experts predict that future devices will continue to integrate, as wireless technologies like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth allow disparate gadgets to communicate with one another. Ultimately, tech will fade into the background, but, for the time being, intelligent software gives us a glimpse of what’s possible.


1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.
→ Tested with Airmega Aim, 100, 150, 160, AP-1216L, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 200M, Icon, IconS, 230, 240, 250, 250 Art, 250S, 300, 300S, 400, 400S, ProX

299.97% of viruses, bacteria, fungi and pollen were verified to be removed from the air for Coway air purifiers which have Green True HEPA™ filter applied based on the Japan Food Research Laboratories(JFRL) testing according to JEM 1467 standard.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
