A fan becomes smart when it can be controlled using Google home or Alexa etc. Meaning you have to have an appetite of using new technologies and a Google home or Alexa device already with Wifi in your home to run these fans smartly 🙂

- Wifi enabled home

Personally I am not sure how our senior parents would take it but so far they like the idea of having a remove to control the ceiling fan. So one step closer to having a smart ceiling fan India. But it is kind of half smart 🙂
But for the new home owners and people under 40, they are adapting the smart devices very well. And Google home or Alexa is becoming very popular from controlling TV channels to controlling smart light bulbs.
And with a hot country like us smart fans in India will surely take off!
Smart ceiling fan reviews
Atomberg Renesa Smart +
Final Verdict: There are not many cons of this great Made in India product.
I just wish if these were available in the largest form also, which is 1400mm.

Which smart ceiling fan India you should buy?
Why buy smart fans anyway?
No 1 reason should be that these ceiling fans use BLDC motors so it uses low electricity. So your bills will be much lower.
But that’s not fun. The fun is controlling the fan with voice control.
And since many of them have wifi and can be controlled via wifi you can control the fan with the remote from another room.
And with a motion sensor, forget about switching the fan on or off, it will do it yourself whenever you enter or exit the room.
And you can also use many presets from the controlling apps to use!
Buying guide smart ceiling fan India
Electric Consumption: I am not into spending a lot so i would check for BLDC motor, Star rating and electric consumption. Usually the larger the fan span the more it will use electricity. And these smart fans are around 1200mm and use around 32 – 40 watts of power.
Wifi: Wifi helps the fan get connected to your home network and then you can use it to connect your phone and take control of the ceiling fan. Ios or Android both phones work and once set up you can control the fan from any room.
Same feature also works with AC with WIFI feature.
IOT: IOT enabled smart ceiling fans enable you to control the smart fan outside of our home. Also you can use IFTTT to use some applets to automate some features.
Sensors: Sensors like motion, weather and thermostat to control the fan. And motion sensors allow the fan to run whenever you enter or exit the room.
Blade design: Blade design determines how much air will be pushed down. Also color matters, and you should choose the color that matches your room.
LED Light: A fan also serves as a light source. A smart ceiling fan in India might have few led lights at the fan head. And those leds give enough light to fill up with light.
Remote: Remote control is a handy feature that anyone can use. And the ability to turn on or off from the sitting position without needing to get up is great. Being lazy is awesome.
Price: If you want to compare the prices of the smart ceiling fan India with the regular ones, then you will see the high difference. And to get these smart ceiling fans you have to pay the high price. But check for deals to get these best smart fans in India at the lowest price possible.
Smart fan price in India
I do not consider smart fans in India as a necessary item and thus you should only buy if you feel the absolute need for it. And considering at a price of one smart ceiling fan in India you can get at least 4 normal ceiling fans, that too the BLDC versions.
Presently the minimum amount to get a IOT enabled fan is around 5k INR.
And many would buy these with EMI but I would not buy a fan in EMI, better I do not then 🙂
But for new homes or apartments these will be very good.
There are many more smart ceiling fans In India, like – xiaomi mi smart fan, lg smart ceiling fans etc.
