Unlike some of their other recent home products, the upcoming Wyze purifier will indeed be “smart” with WiFi connectivity and app control. Like my recently acquired Winix purifier, the Internet-connectivity facilitates scheduling and looks to incorporate local air quality – such as tree pollen and smoke levels.
Like most air purifiers, it can run at various speeds, including max and turbo, but no turbo max. While the enclosure is square, Wyze incorporates a round filter – perhaps similar to the $105 Meross smart purifier. For possible context, that’s a 3-stage HEPA filter capable of capturing 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns in size. But, while the meross is Homekit-compatible, I assume Wyze will provide only optional Alexa and Google Assistant integration.
