Hunter Fan Company Awarded CES 2016 Editors’ Choice for Wi-Fi® Enabled, Apple HomeKit-Enabled Ceiling Fans

January 15, 2016 – Memphis, TNHunter Fan Company, the leading manufacturer of ceiling fans, debuted two Wi-Fi enabled fans at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which received a CES 2016 Editors’ Choice Award by Today. Chosen from hundreds of new products, the CES Editor’s Choice Awards honor products that are considered exceptionally innovative in their technology, value and design. Hunter’s new Symphony and Signal ceiling fans boast support for Apple HomeKit technology and connect to a home’s Wi-Fi network to create an automated suite of comfort, security and energy efficiency.
“Hunter Fan has a 130-year legacy of ceaseless innovation, and we’re honored that our latest designs were recognized with a CES 2016 Editors’ Choice Award,” said Hunter Fan CEO John Alexander. “Our tireless commitment to quality and originality is why Hunter is the industry leader, and our collaboration with Apple and launch of the first affordable Wi-Fi-enabled ceiling fans are testaments to our rich heritage.”

Apple HomeKit technology allows users to control each fan – or a group of fans – using Siri on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple Watch. Users can create custom Scenes with other HomeKit-enabled products to automatically turn on the fan’s light, lock the doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat to the desired temperature in just one step. HomeKit-enabled products also work together based on Triggers; for example, the fan’s light can be triggered to turn on the moment the fire alarm detects smoke. HomeKit technology provides advanced security with end-to-end encryption and authentication between the fan and the iOS device.
Symphony retails at $329 while Signal retails at $379. Both fans are available spring 2016 at:;;;;;;; and in lighting showrooms nationwide. The fans were developed in collaboration with industry leaders Ayla Networks and Marvell Technology Group Ltd.
