Dreo’s new smart fans will keep you nice and cool through the summer


Without a doubt, temperatures around the world are spiking and we are seeing hotter summers than ever, with temperatures breaking previous records. This has all sorts of implications, from crops withering faster and not being able to bear any produce, to the ice caps melting, and more.

On a more micro level, it’s also affecting us in our homes where depending on where you live, the heat can become so unbearable that it is no longer an option to just open the windows. You could always turn on air conditioning, but that would mean racking up a massive electricity bill, especially if you plan on running it all day and all night.

A good alternative to air-cons are fans, which are generally less resource intensive. But even then, not all fans are created equal and if you are looking for the best fan that can keep you cool through the summer, Dreo’s got a couple of new smart fans you might want to take a look at.

PolyFan 513S

If you’re looking for a strong and powerful fan, the Dreo PolyFan 513S is worth checking out. This is a pedestal fan standing 43-inches tall. It features 9-inch blades and has a max speed of 1,800 RPM, which is honestly pretty strong.

One of the things we like about the PolyFan 513S is that unlike regular fans that only swivel to the left and right, this fan can do that and also swivel up and down. This means that it can blast air all over the room to help cool it down, as opposed to regular fans that only swing to the left and right, and adjusting its angle has to be done manually.

It is also a relatively silent fan, if that kind of thing is important to you. According to Dreo, it can be as quiet as 25dB, or even when its speed is maxed out, it only goes up to 51dB which is tolerable, especially if you have the TV on or you’re speaking to other people where the noise of the fan basically becomes unnoticeable.

If you need something a bit smaller and won’t take up too much room, the Dreo CF714S is a good alternative. As it doesn’t come with a pedestal design, it’s actually perfect for placing on your desk. It is also a great choice if you have a smaller house or bedroom that you want to keep cool without the fan taking up too much space.

Interestingly enough, despite its smaller stature, the CF714S can actually cover a greater distance compared to its larger PolyFan 513S sibling at 110 feet versus 100 feet. It is slightly less powerful at 1,280 max RPM, but if you’re only planning to cover a smaller area, it should still be strong enough to cool it down quickly.

Similar to the PolyFan 513S, the CF714S comes with 9-inch blades and it is also a relatively quiet fan where at its lowest speed hits sound levels of 25dB, and goes up to around 51dB at max power, which like we mentioned previously is also pretty quiet all things considered.

Powered by Turbosilent X technology

Thanks to the use of Dreo’s Turbosilent X technology that can create a unique airflow pattern that they claim drives more air volume. This is achieved by placing the fan’s blades within a special casing, allowing it to funnel air at a greater distance and reach places in your home that traditional fans may not.

The use of the Turbosilent X tech also means that the fans can create a spiral effect in terms of its airflow. This allows the fan’s blades to capture a greater volume of air, while at the same time minimizing turbulence and wind noise, and creating a smoother and more uniform distribution of air.

Smart fan technology

Now, most fans you might be familiar with basically offer on and off functionality and speed adjustment, which is fine if you’re not too fussy, but if you’re looking for a greater degree of control, the PolyFan 513S and CF714S fans can do more than that thanks to the use of smart home technology.

Both fans offer integration with both Google Assistant and Alexa, which means that if you have a compatible smart speaker, smart display, phone, or tablet, you can use your voice to control the fans, so you don’t have to search for the remote or adjust the fan manually.

The accompanying app also comes with a pretty cool and unique feature that we don’t see in too many fans these days, which is the ability to create a custom airflow mode. This means that users can set it so that the fans can get faster or slower at different times of the day or based on the ambient temperature.

So if it’s starting to get too hot, the fans can automatically adjust its speed, and then slow down when things are cooler again. This is useful because it could also potentially mean lower electricity bills because your fans won’t be blasting at max power all the time.

The app will also allow users to adjust the angle of the fan, so instead of walking over to manually adjust the angle, you can do it all within the app.

Pricing and availability

So, if you’re looking for a fan to help keep your home or office cool during the summer, and you want it to be a bit more hi-tech than your run-of-the-mill fans you find at the store, then Dreo’s new smart fans are definitely worth looking into.

The Dreo PolyFan 513S will be priced at $139.99, while the Dreo CF714S will be slightly cheaper and will retail for $99.99.
