The Haiku smart fan uses an integrated LED module which is more energy efficient than a traditional 40-watt incandescent bulb. In addition, it offers 16 different brightness settings for a wide range of light output.

It’s equipped with motion and climate sensors so you don’t have to bother about turning the unit on or even adjusting it manually.

The LED is extremely bright at its max but dimmable, and the included remote control does exactly what it says on the tin, so you won’t have to deal with any pull-chains to adjust the fan or lights. This fan will be a great addition to your home if you are looking for a modern, stylish, and energy efficient ceiling fan at a very reasonable price.
- Ceiling Fan Comparison
The best thing about this fan – aside from its “smartness” – is that it is the most power-efficient ceiling fan on our list.
- The Comfy Buddy
The unit comes with an integrated LED light that has a good range of brightness options and it also comes with voice command care of Alexa plus smartphone control. The application operates by way of Android and iOS units and it comes with all the details needed to make the fan work and do its job from fan speeds and brightness settings down to sleep modes.
- Home Decor Selection
Haiku Home L Series Smart Ceiling Fan is worth the price. It works with Amazon Alexa through voice-control functions. You can also adjust the speed of the fan by using an Infrared (IR) Remote that will come in the package. Just continue watching your favorite movie, or read a book and ask Alexa to turn the Haiku Home L Series Smart Ceiling Fan on/off. You can also set a timer, sleep mode, whoosh mode (which simulates real breezes). Adjust the speed of your fan with Amazon Alexa as well.

What experts didn't like
Pricey. Doesn't move as much air as you may expect for the price. Requires some tech savvy to set up, and the app occasionally has issues. Many plastic components.

The fan comes factory-balanced and features an exclusive, sound-tested Axial Flux Permanent Magnet Motor. However, it is a bit hard to install. Most of the parts are made out of plastic which is disappointing considering the price. It’s powerful but not more powerful than cheaper fans in the market.

Nevertheless, it’s a bit difficult to install. Most of its parts are made using plastic, which is quite unsatisfactory considering its price. It is powerful but not as powerful as some of the cheaper fans available in the market.

It’s pricey. Like most “smart” items, the Haiku L Series do not come cheap. Only the units bought through Amazon come with the wi-fi module. You’ll need to get the app to get the most out of the unit.

Everything has a price, and so does this Haiku smart ceiling fan. You need to have quite a budget to be able to afford it. But we think that it is worth it.
- The Comfy Buddy
There had been some problems regarding WiFi connectivity and sustaining a connection, which can be inconvenient. Also, keep in mind that the WiFi receiver and app do require upgrades to make said units dependable and well-suited.
