Hunter’s SIMPLEconnect™ smart home ceiling fan collection is growing

Brunswick white ceiling fan with wifi in a rustic open concept roomTechnology doesn’t have to be intimidating: Hunter’s SIMPLEconnect™ collection of Wi-Fi enabled ceiling fans makes it easy for you to step into the smart home environment. Hunter Fan Company is the only brand in the industry with smart home ceiling fans compatible with the three major smart home integrations — Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Home.

Set timers and schedules for your ceiling fan and ceiling fan light by using your existing smart home platform and the Hunter SIMPLEconnect ceiling fan remote app. Coming home late? The remote integration allows you to turn on your ceiling fan light before you arrive to avoid walking into a dark house. Left your house in a rush? Hunter’s smart ceiling fans can be turned off remotely to help you save energy.

Use voice control through your smart home applications to operate your ceiling fan on/off and speed functions.

You can coordinate the SIMPLEconnect™ Wi-Fi enabled ceiling fan with other Wi-Fi enabled devices like smart thermostats or light bulbs through Apple HomeKit by creating “scenes” and “conditional triggers.”

From mid-century modern to rustic, Hunter’s SIMPLEconnect collection of smart home ceiling fans is available in a variety of styles to appeal to every design taste.

Hunter’s SIMPLEconnect™ collection currently includes five design styles and 13 finishes starting at $200. All of our SIMPLEconnect designs feature LED lights and a preinstalled remote receiver for easy ceiling fan installation.

The Symphony modern ceiling fan features sweeping blades and elegant lines for a soft modern design. This 54-inch large ceiling fan is perfect for large indoor spaces. It debuted at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in 2016 in white and is now available in two additional finishes.

Hygge: Unfussy and uncluttered design for your space

Pinterest identified Hygge as one of the rising trends in 2017. So what exactly is Hygge other than a word that’s tricky to pronounce? (It’s pronounced HUE-gah, by the way.)

The Danish word doesn’t have an exact translation, but it’s used to convey a feeling of coziness and peacefulness. We have some tips on how to achieve the effortless design in your home.

COLORS

What’s more relaxing than the beach? Imagine the ocean view and bring those colors into your home. Warm, Nordic blues with hints of light greys and taupe will inspire calm and create an oasis to escape a stressful world.

We not only love this color palate on textiles and paint, but try a seaglass inspired backsplash or inky swirled coloring on dishes.

PATTERN

Pairing ocean-inspired colors with subtle nautical prints only seems fitting. While you might not live beachside, coastal patterns and stripes imply a sense of relaxation as if you were there.

Delicate botanicals in those same relaxing hues also add a pop of pattern to your Hygge inspired room. Think small airy blooms and scrolling vines.

TEXTURES

How many hours do we spend looking at a computer screen or typing on our phones? Trade tech for textures: Add finishes and textiles in your home that are calming to look at or are soothing to touch.

Satin copper, gentle burnished steel, soft oxidization – add pops of soft worn metals around your room. Rustic woods like a toasted oak or subtle white wash are stylish yet sensory surfaces that will lighten up your space.

HUNTER FEATURES FANS WITH RUSTIC BLADE FINISHES LIKE OUR DONEGAN COLLECTION OR OUR APACHE WI-FI AND APPLE HOMEKIT ENABLED FAN.

The ultimate definition of cozy includes soft knits and even velvet (yes, velvet – we hear it’s making a comeback). Utilitarian fabrics, while they don’t always come off as cozy as knits, can convey an unfussy and uncluttered feel with clean lines for an airy industrial look.

Woven tiling and loose weaves in blankets resemble netting and can be a unique yet casual texture to apply in your space.
