Smartmi continues to be very active in terms of devices designed to improve the indoor environment. Last year, for example, the company announced its new P2 mobile battery-powered air purifier (review, video) and funded it via Kickstarter. Now the manufacturer unveiled yet another air purifier model, the E1.
The device attracts attention with its decorative design, with the primary filter easily replaceable and with different designs, not dissimilar to Ikea’s Symfonisk wall speakers that also come with interchangeable covers. In addition to being a sort of typical floor-standing device, the air purifier can be wall mounted, thus saving space, whilst almost appearing as a piece of art.
The air purifier has a triple filter and is said to reliably filter out dust, pollen, smoke, and bacteria for rooms up to 18 sqm when in operation, with a maximum volume of 48 dB. The device dimensions are 42 × 30 × 14 cm, weight 3.1 kg.
The Smartmi E1 air purifier connects via Wi-Fi and can be operated with the Smartmi app and integrated into your HomeKit home. Google Home and Amazon Alexa are also supported. The new smart home standard Matter is not supported at this time, however. In addition, manual operation is possible on the device to switch through three fan speeds.
For the basic configuration, the device comes with a neutral, grey front panel. Additional artwork-type filters can then be purchased separately. We have not yet been able to find out when and at what price the new Smartmi E1 air purifier will be available, but we will of course keep you up to date on this.
