Big Ass Fans® today announced an update to its Haiku® with SenseME™ smart ceiling fan that personalizes nighttime operation to help improve your sleep.

Haiku with SenseME automates comfort throughout the day with its on-board computer and environmental sensors. Now that same technology works to keep you comfortable while you sleep.

Enable Sleep Mode, and Haiku with SenseME monitors the room around you, adjusting speed automatically for consistent, all-night comfort. Haiku slows down as the temperature drops overnight, so you’ll never again wake up freezing at 4 a.m. For customers who prefer a steady fan speed all night, Haiku with SenseME can be programmed to do that, too.

Why it matters

According to the Institute of Medicine, an estimated 70 million Americans struggle with chronic sleep problems. And the conditions around your bed are just as crucial to a good night’s sleep as your mattress, sheets and pillow; research shows thermal comfort is strongly linked to how well we sleep.

Because ceiling fans are installed in bedrooms more often than any other room of the house, they have the ability to dramatically improve one’s sleep if used intelligently. Through automated thermal comfort, Big Ass Fans is delivering a solution for a better night’s sleep. Preferences are easy to set using the SenseME app, available on both iOS and Android devices.
