Air purifiers have evolved over the years, from bulky, fan-filled models to more elegant, more convenient Wi-Fi-connected offerings. One thing that has not changed, however, is the personal nature of air quality. For those with severe allergies or sensitivities, these are an indispensable element. However, for others, the fact that you have one in the house may not offer concrete benefits, at least on the surface.

If you are one who knows that you simply cannot live without an air purifier or if you want to make your first purchase, there are a lot of factors to consider. Features such as available fan speeds, noise levels, filtering prices, intelligent controls, design, air quality monitoring and, of course, price are all important, which makes some decisions difficult.

Fortunately, there are options available, such as the smart Wi-Fi purifier from Elechomes, which combines all the important things into one plug and play solution. I tested the Elechomes air purifier in my house last month and it comes with a lot of positives surrounding the way it lives to all these critical elements. However, there are some issues that prevent it from being a suitable option for everyone.

Elechomes Wi-Fi Smart Air Purifier: features

The Elechomes air purifier features a modern, clean design with a white frame with a black control panel at the top. A large perforated section comprising about half of the front of the purifier allows air to pass through and acts as the access panel to the included filter. Air purification takes the form of a four-stage filtration process, which consists of a pre-filter, an anti-bacterial cloth, an activated carbon filter and a HEPA filter.

Elechomes states that the filtration system is capable of capturing up to 99.97% of airborne particles, and the purifier covers up to 325 ft. The filtered particles include standards such as dust, pet toothpaste, pollen, mold and allergens, plus it claims to trap bacteria, viruses, VOCs and formaldehyde.

The air purifier has a built-in air quality monitoring, and the measurements can be found in the control area, which is in the form of an LCD. The settings on the device are available with simple touch controls and include power, fan speed, stopwatch and child lock. None of the features are labeled, but are illuminated icons, except for a Wi-Fi setup and filter reset button that is used smoothly.

Although a physical remote control is not included, all Elechomes air purification functions can be controlled through the Smart Life app available for both iOS and Android. The purifier connects directly to home networks via Wi-Fi without the need for a separate hub, creating, most of the time, a plug and play adventure.

Once connected, the Smart Life app displays air quality data directly from the purifier in a beautiful and beautiful numerical form and also shows the outdoor air quality for your location. The app also records running time to determine when the filters will be changed, which are listed as needing replacement after 1,500 hours. Replacement filters are available directly from Elechomes and through Amazon for about $ 40.

In-app controls include fan speed settings, mode selection, and smart wizard integration access. Both Amazon, Google Assistant, and Siri shortcuts are supported for convenient voice control, but like many smart accessories, they don’t work with the Apple HomeKit. Rounding out the feature set is a child lock that prevents accidental push of buttons, switches to activate negative ion functionality, programming and timers.

Elechomes Wi-Fi Smart Air Purifier: What I like

Setting up the Elechomes air purifier was quick and easy, at least for things that aren’t smart (more on that later) and can only take five minutes, including unplugging and installing the filter. Once set up, I liked seeing the clean design of the air purifier, which contrasts with a few others I have around the house, all of which have weird design options, like big fun lights or buttons and buttons.

I also liked the way the design provides easy access to the filter compartment, with a convenient push system that removes the front panel without tools, and the filters themselves had pull tabs at hand. Speaking of filters, I was pleasantly surprised by the substantial size of the main filter, which I would estimate to be about 3 centimeters thick. Although the size of the filter does not necessarily equate to cleaner air, it certainly shows the side and is thicker than any filter I have seen for a unit of this size.

Even though the Smart Life app offers on-demand air quality reading, it’s sometimes faster and more convenient to look at a display on your device that the Elechomes purifier has. Taking real-time air quality measurements is not only great for general checks, but also to make sure the purifier is actually doing something. Although I can’t feel or feel a difference in the air, often, just sitting near the purifier, it caused a peak in reading, which gives me the impression that the sensor is working.

Navigating the Smart Life app was fairly straightforward with the addition of the purifier, thanks to the clearly marked tabs and functions. Adjustments are never more than a faucet or two distances, and key data, such as air quality measurements and uptime, have been front and center through the use of larger fonts. Adjustments, such as application speed changes made by the app, took effect on the device about a second or two later, with air quality measurement updates occurring in approximately the same amount of time.

As I mentioned earlier, setting up the non-smart part of the air purifier was pretty straightforward, and in theory it should have been the same via the Smart Life app, but unfortunately in my case it wasn’t. so. The Elechomes air purifier suffers from a common but frustrating problem, which surrounds Wi-Fi networks that combine 2.4ghz and 5ghz in the same SSID, which means that its application will not be able to see the device.

In most cases, there are settings available for routers that can separate the two, but for my eero mesh router system, this option does not exist. After starting an AirPort Extreme that I set aside especially for this case, the Smart Life application could see it, and the pairing process actually took less than 5 minutes.

Turning to the air purifier itself, I found that it worked almost silently most of the time until it was time for the automatic mode to pick up. The sound levels on these occasions and with the highest speed setting are certainly not overlapping, the measurements taken by the Noise application on an Apple Watch measuring peaks between 50 and 55 decibels. During normal operation in car mode, the purifier itself did not have an impact on the sound level in my house, which dropped on average between 30 and 40 decibels.

The biggest problem I encountered with the purifier is that the first unit I tested suffered from strange measurements from the air quality sensor. Apparently at random, the purifier will display a measurement of exactly 500 particles, which caused the purifier to rise to the highest fan speed in auto mode. This was annoying, to say the least, but fortunately a later purifier sent by Elechomes did not exhibit this behavior, which led me to believe that the first unit was simply defective.

Elechomes Wi-Fi Smart Air Purifier: Bottom line

3.5
of 5








When all this is said and done, you will definitely love the Elechomes Smart Wi-Fi Air Purifier. The clean appearance, the integrated air quality sensor and the convenient intelligent controls ensure it on the more expensive offers of the bigger competitors. Throw away the affordable price tag and low-cost replacement filters, then suddenly the Elechomes purifier becomes a viable alternative.

As with all things, there are some disadvantages that prevent the Elechomes purifier from being a more universal recommendation. Wi-Fi compatibility issues with some routers, slightly strong and low speed increase when in auto mode, and the lack of support for HomeKit is worth considering before buying. However, if you don’t mind the occasional change in noise level, don’t use HomeKit and know that your router is compatible, then the Elechomes Wi-Fi smart purifier is definitely worth considering.
