Smartmi P1 is a new product that has become one of the most popular air purifier manufacturers out there, with over 10 million users all over the planet. It can purify your home in 10 minutes by trapping 99.99% of particles that pass through the filter.
A room can be cleaned six-plus times within an hour in a space that is up to 320 square feet. In 10 minutes Smartmi P1 can purify 200 ft², so it will take about 15 minutes to clean 320ft². It operates quietly and the fan speed will adjust accordingly to the real-time air quality. The main point of this device is that it removes most common allergens and harmful particles, including:
- Dust Mites
- Pet Dander
- Mold Spores
Important to mention that it can increase your sleep quality by having clean air in your bedroom or place it where you do your sports activity and possibly have better workouts.
There isn’t a way to dim the lights in HomeKit, but I think it does this automatically. It has a light sensor and adjusts its brightness. Screen brightness adapts automatically based on the surrounding conditions, thus evading unwanted night-time brightness.
The SmartMi is $300 less than the only other HomeKit air purifier available in the US (VOCOlinc VAP1 $399). Replacement filters are currently $60 for 2 on Indiegogo, they say it’s 49% off the retail when they launch. They’ve also said they’ll be available on Amazon.
Smartmi can be controlled by a voice through a mobile phone, for example by using Siri commands. Firmware can be upgraded through the App of Smartmi.
