Nobody likes to admit the silly things they do but for some reason but it seems I do on this blog constantly. Why is that? I have no clue. I swear I used to be a private person but somewhere between blog posts and Instagram pics my feelings seem to have changed and I just tell you like it is.
So here we go… I have allergies. Like bad allergies. My doctor says I have this 3 thing that shows that mine are severe. I know it has something to do with my nose and I don’t know what else. But it is apparently quite visible that I am an allergy sufferer.
The allergies that most bother me are grass, pollen and cottonwood whatever that junk is. Ugh. But my worst allergy is to pet dander. I know, I know! But I have 4 cats and 1 dog. What kind of idiot must I be? The best kind of idiot… the animal loving kind.
This spring I got such a great opportunity to partner up with Holmes and check out their Smart Air Purifier with WEMO. I had no clue what WEMO was but if I was going to be getting cleaner air that just might lead to lessened allergy symptoms I was down.
Turns out WEMO is this technology/app that controls home electronics remotely. The power of the internet is insane, am I right, people!? It’s available for both iPhones and Androids and is a totally free app. And it’s pretty cool.
With my phone I can control this air purifier like nothing you’ve ever seen before. I suppose that’s what makes it a “smart air purifier” rather than a not so smart one :) You can control the speed, schedule it to go off and on at certain times, turn the ionizer on or off and check on the status of your filter.
As somebody who regularly forgets to eat meals and has family members asking me to put reminders on my cell phone so that I will remember to eat I have to tell you this is a good thing for me. Because I wouldn’t remember that there was even a filter in there let alone when to change the thing.
Basically this app means you can control your purifier from anywhere you have internet access. From work, or the grocery store. Maybe you went on vacation and forgot to turn the schedule off… boom. Open WEMO and shut it down until you get back.
Technology aside, why does anybody need a Holmes purifier anyway? FIrst off because True HEPA filtration can remove up to 99.97% of the funky stuff in your air like pollen, dust, dust mite debris (ew!), mold spores, pet dander and smoke or odors (hey there crafty lady what is that awful smell?)
That’s a lot of stuff gone from the air that you breathe! I figure that allergy and asthma sufferers or pet owners, like myself would greatly benefit immensely. And it seems right on the money that health conscious and families with children would want the best air possible in the home.
And that’s really just the tip of the iceberg. I like smart phone apps and I like breathing better but there’s so much health-wise that a Holmes® Smart Air Purifier can do for you and your family.
So, you want to try one of these babies out for yourself? I have quite a treat for you!
