SINGAPORE - Dyson has launched the Pure Cool Link purifier fan to combat indoor air pollution.

This purifier fan, which looks identical to Dyson's bladeless fans, has a 360-degree glass HEPA filter that is said to remove 99.95 per cent of indoor allergens and trap particles as tiny as 0.1 microns. It can also remove odours, such as cigarette smoke and cooking smells.

Sensors inside the purifier fan measure the air quality in your home and automatically adjust the airflow to achieve the target air quality. In addition, the Pure Cool Link functions purely as a fan.

However, the air filter cannot be washed. Dyson estimates the filter is good for around a year if you use the purifier fan for 12 hours a day. But it takes less than a minute to change to a new filter.

The Pure Cool Link is also the first Dyson product to come with a mobile app for remote monitoring and control.

Through the Dyson Link app (Android and iOS), the purifier fan connects to your mobile device to update you on the air quality both inside and outside your home. Users can set a desired air quality level in the app for the purifier fan to achieve. The app also tracks your home's air quality history.

For outdoor air quality, Dyson has partnered with BreezoMeter, a data analytics startup that provides real-time air quality data.

The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan is available in tower and desktop versions. The tower, which is placed on the floor, will be available from the end of this month at $1,099. The desktop model will go on sale from end-May for $699.
