Home devices and appliances are increasingly getting smarter every day.

The 48-inch oscillating fan features a slim tower profile equipped with electronic controls located at the top. It provides four different speed modes as well as nighttime setting and option for widespread oscillation. There is also an 8-hour auto-off timer available in addition to the smart schedule users can find through the Alexa app.
Lasko's smart air purifier uses a two-stage filtration system. The activated carbon filter eliminates smokes, odors, and VOCs (volatile organic compound) while the HEPA filter traps virus-sized particles and harmful irritants such as pollen, mold, and dust. Additionally, the smart tower purifier can clean rooms with an area of up to 232 sq. feet (~21.5 sqm) or equivalent to 150 CADR rating. Moreover, it boasts four speed selections and physical controls similar to the smart tower fan.
If you want to take advantage of the voice control, an Alexa hub or smart speaker is needed. The two smart home devices also work with Alexa's easy pairing setup.
