Free Haiku Light with Purchase of Haiku Fan -- For those interested in smart home

+2 Deal Score
4,460 Views
This is a very good to great deal from my perspective if one is interested in the Haiku L series fan which starts at $450 from the vendors site which isn't that bad of a price considering it doesn't cost that much more for it to become a smart fan and it has a very energy efficient DC motor. A wall control with a wifi module can be added for $125 but I believe one can speak with the vendor (Haiku Home) and just have the wifi module added for $25 if one doesn't want all of the advanced smart features like temperature control and the fan turning on when you walk in the room. And sometimes the wall control units are sold on Ebay for $75.

The free LED Haiku light can be up to a premium light that sells for $199 and can be resold on Ebay. The light has gotten very good review from CNET.

This deal doesn't knock and much off on a percentage basis off of the much more expensive H series and I series but is still worth considering if you are intrigued with the Haiku lights as well.

I ended up not doing this deal since I ended up gambling on a refurbished H series fans since I don't need many of them in my house. The refurbished fans do not come with a free light.

Where/how did you get the refurb?

I was waiting for a % off deal for BF/CM...but that never materialized. The free light doesn't work for me given that I already have Hue/Link lights throughout the house.

I've had a Haiku 'L' series fan in one of of guest bedrooms for ~1 year now. As OP mentioned, pricey (~$380 after coupon), but absolutely love the thing!

I saw this email for the refurb and then I called them up and may have gotten a better deal for whatever reason...perhaps buying more than 1 fan and going with a color that was priced more competitively(carmel bamboo plus white)... I say may have since I haven't received the fan yet but the price I paid was below the figures listed below. I did add the led light kits that cost $95 each. My home isn't huge and if it was and I needed lots of fans, I would probably go with the L series but I splurged a bit more on the H series refurbished

Below is the email from October but they still have these or similar fans. I would advise folks interested in the refurbished H or I series to decide on a fan/color combo in their head and then decide if they are willing to gamble on refurbished. I have more faith in Haiku Home refurbished then a refurbished electronics from HP/Sony et cetera. However, it is somewhat of a gamble that you are taking with a refurbished fan especially if you live in an area where installation costs are high.

They certainly are pricey but this deal I think takes away nearly all of the price premium considering if someone lists up to 4 Haiku Lights Premium LED lights on Ebay in Satin Nickel for $110 each, I will in all likelihood buy all 4 of them.

Someone has sold these lights before on Ebay for less ($75) but I have a feeling that the resale will be higher than that since the very positive review on CNET.

https://www.cnet.com/products/big...ht/review/

Note the review lists the non premium model which sells for $149 but with this deal, you can get the premium light for free which sells for $199. So, if you are getting it for free you would have to be kind of crazy not to take one of the lights that normally sells for $199.

For folks in truly hot weather climates, I really think these fans at this price level of $350 actually become economical over the long run. More likely to use them and with the DC motor much more energy efficient.

Great deal. Tempted to pick up an L. Does the wifi add-on make it HomeKit compatible? Or do I need to switch to a different model for that?

I am not an expert of these fans and their future plans but I have read pretty much everything that is out there on the internet about them.

From what I can gather none of their fans are Homekit compatible even with the wifi module added but their is a good chance that they may be in the future. They do have their own app and they are compatible with other services like Amazon Alexa or whatever that is called. With Amazon Alexa not ever feature is supported so you can't put the fan in "woosh' mode which is meant to somewhat mimic the unpredictable behavior of a nice breeze. But it does allow you to turn off the lights and fan with voice commands.

I suspect HomeKit will be added since Haiku Home has hinted they are working on it or at least very seriously contemplating it. Given iPhone was the first smart phone platform they supported, I suspect they will end up supporting it.

There is also the integration with the Nest thermostat or whatever that is called. And that is supported right now.

I really do think this is a great deal on the L series at least... Better than the $50 off deal since the light has more value than that. These things do not go on sale that often at all.

I don't have experience with either but from what I have read and I have as much as I could, Haiku appears to be the better bet. The reviews seem to be a little stronger especially if you are coming from the Apple world and the build quality may be a bit better.

Haiku Home makes fans for residences that sell for over $1000 each that the more affordable L series is based off of. Pretty much identical functionality if you buy the wall control but less premium materials and less sizes to choose from. I had a difficult time spending that for a fan that is closer to a "piece of furniture" than a fan but the reviews and awards for Haiku fans I think as of right now at least arguably make it the leader in smart fans.

http://www.zdnet.com/article/haik...ass-money/

If you don't care much about smart fan technology, energy efficiency and advanced features, I have read some good things about (I believe) some Emerson fans. I also like the design of a few Modern Fan company fans but I feel as though they have done a relatively poor job of upgrading their fans with smart fan technology, energy efficiency and advanced features.

I have no affiliation with any of these companies.
