IoT is the acronym for ‘Internet of Things,’ a new technological era that enables us to control everyday objects and devices connected to a network.

In the new Faro Barcelona catalogue, we’ve used this capability for some of our fans, which, connected to a WiFi network, can be managed through a mobile phone and home automation technology applications such as Alexa, Google Home and Siri.

What’s new about these automation systems is the possibility that they offer to be able to automate actions, and to forget, as in the case of fans, about remote control. They also allow you to have all your devices together with customised settings and within the reach of voice commands.

Thanks to the universal platform we’ve used at Faro Barcelona for this project, you can use your mobile phone as if it were the fan control, since it has the same functionalities:

– On and off switch. In the case of the off switch, also if you’re not in your home and you’ve forgotten.
– Blade speed
– Light on and off switch
– Light intensity
– Activate and deactivate the reverse function
– Activate the breeze mode

We’ll also be updating more functions as our technical team improves the product. When this happens, we’ll update the application and the new functionality will automatically appear on your device.

Connectivity

To use a fan with IoT Technology, you need to download the WiZ application on the platform you usually use to acquire applications and be connected to a WiFi network. In this regard:

– It’s important to have good coverage. If you’re going to install your fan in a room where the WiFi on your mobile phone sometimes doesn’t work very well, you’d need to improve this with a repeater or a WiFi mesh network.
– It only works with 2.4 GHz band, which is the most extensive band and the one used by most operators. You must connect the system to the network that does NOT have 5G at the end of its name.
– If your network goes down at any time, you can use the traditional control to activate any function on your fan, since it’s incorporated.
– Once configured, you’ll acquire the “Administrator” profile and there can be more than one. So, everyone who lives at home can change the preferences of the fan according to their taste (and the heat).
– The application also allows you to invite other people to temporarily control the fan from their mobile phone. This is the “guest permission” option that will let that person control the fan only during their visit.

In the Faro Barcelona catalogue, you’ll find designer fans with IoT technology with different finishes and sizes, such as the models JUST FAN, ETERFAN, WINCHE, NASSAU and TYPHOON, the latter being suitable for outdoor use with an IP44 protection index against liquids and dust.

    Buenos días
    Los ventiladores de techo con control remoto permiten temporizador o hay que mirar los que incluyen IoT?

    Hello,

    We have a Faro Polaris (and we are very happy with it) and we would like to add an IOT controller for it, do you sell them as aftermarket?

    Also, where can I find the electrical specification of the lamp and DC motor?

    Thanks a lot!
    A happy customer from France

      Hello. At the moment you can only control fans with IOT technology that have this symbol in our 2020 catalogue, which are new.
      About the Polaris light kit works with LED 18W 1500 Lm 2700K and its DC motor has 5 dimmable speeds 86-108-130-145-175 rpm which correspond to the following consumptions of 4-9-16-23-35W.

    Hola, tengo un ventilador Nuu (sin IoT) es posible re-convertirlo al modelo wifi?
    Gracias!!

      Hola Leonor. Por el momento no se pueden controlar los ventiladores con el sistema IoT que no lo llevan ya incorporado desde su venta. Un saludo

    Hola:
    Compré hace ya casi 4 años el ventilador de techo 33470 – PALK Ventilador con motor DC y me va fenomenal.
    Pero ahora veo que existe una versión IoT del mismo modelo ¿Podría comprar de manera independiente algún kit, si existiera, para instalarlo yo mismo en el ventilador y convertirlo así en un dispositivo IoT?

    Gracias y reciban un cordial saludo.

      Hola. Lo sentimos mucho, pero de momento no se puede convertir en IoT un ventilador que no es así en el momento de compra. Un saludo.

    Hola, el modelo lantau, ¿tienen previsto que salga con el motor dc y el nuevo sistema loT? ¿Lo más parecido actualmente es el modelo morea? ¿A la hora de instalarlo, con lo que viene en el paquete sobra o hay alguna pieza que se pueda poner para asegurar sobre todo para altas velocidades tema de vibraciones o movimientos? Muchas gracias.

    • Faro Barcelona Faro Barcelona says:

      Buenos días Carlos,
      Muchas gracias por escribirnos.
      El modelo LANTAU no es posible hacerlo con el sistema IOT, ya que no dispone de un motor DC.
      En cuanto al modelo más similar estéticamente y que sea motor DC es el MOREA o el ventilador de techo ALO, pero tiene un motor AC.
      A la hora de instalarlo, el ventilador incluye todo lo necesario para su correcta instalación y fijación. En el caso de que lo quieras instalar en un falso techo, necesitarías una tornillería adaptada que deberás conseguir particularmente.
      Para cualquier otra consulta, estamos a tu disposición.
      Saludos

    ¡Hola! Tengo desde hace un tiempo un EASY 33416 y estamos contentísimos con él. De hecho estábamos pensando en adquirir otro para una segunda residencia, pero viendo este artículo tengo la duda de si tenéis previsto sacar este modelo con versión WiFi, ya que controlarlo a través del móvil o mediante Alexa sería una pasada auténtica!. Muchas gracias, un saludo.

      Hola Rosa M. Lo sentimos pero no tenemos previsto sacar la versión IOT del modelo EASY porque tiene motor AC y no es posible integrar la conectividad. Un saludo.
