smart fans by modern forms

Technology is rapidly changing, and with the growing popularity of Siri, Alexa, and Cortana comes highly innovative products that reshape how we live our day to day life.
During Market, Modern Forms unveiled their new line of Smart Fans, equipped with their signature aesthetically evoking designs, and superior quality.

What Makes a fan SMART?

The fans designed by Modern Forms are made to correspond with existing smart home devices such as Google Assistant, Amazon Echo, and Nest & Ecobee. You are able to schedule usage, and control the speed and illumination of the fans from your smartphone device, or by voice command. In addition, Modern Forms has developed an app that makes controlling your smart fan so much easier. With the Modern Forms app, you can control your smart fan features whether you are in the room, or miles away.

Design Features?

The Fans are made with durable Aluminum hardware, ABS blades, and integrated LED luminaires, assuring the longevity of the product. The fans also have a lumen output range from 1110lm to 2041lm depending on the chosen fan style. In addition, the fans are made with a DC motor, known to have minimal sound with high energy savings.
The smart fans are also wet-rated, allowing them to be installed in both indoor and outdoor settings, such as patios, or gazebos for a cohesive look throughout the home. For larger spaces that require multiple fans, the smart fans by Modern Forms can work in a singular circuit without losing synchronization.

Benefits of a Smart fan?

One of the major benefits of using a fan is the potential savings it can provide a household. Though the amount of savings also depends on other factors such as the adjustment of the thermostat and usage, you can still potentially save 30-40% using a fan year-round as they help recirculate warm and cool air within a space.
With Smart Fans, they not only provide convenience, but can also contribute to the potential savings by being able to control when the fan is turned on and off through a smartphone device, reducing unnecessary usage.

In addition, the smart fans are also designed with DC Motors. DC motors are described as being more energy efficient, as they use less power to move air around the room.
Aside from the potential savings a smart fan also give you a sense of full control over your lighting. Regardless of whether you are at home, at work, or on vacation, being able to control your lighting system through the convenience of your smartphone device can become advantageous when you have forgotten to turn off the fan before heading out the door, or when you want to ensure your home does not look vacant, deterring intruders from breaking in.

   20% OFF PERFECTLY PORTABLE SALE NORBURN We are preparing for the changing season ahead with our Perfectly Portable Sale which will run from August 14 to September 16, 2017. All regular priced lamps and mirrors will be 20% off for this limited time.

So what makes portables so great?

1) SET THE MOOD

Lamps can soften shadows and provide ambient lighting for conversation or when reading. For instance, the LED Outdoor Lanterns with Bluetooth Speaker from Kichler offers ambient lighting that is dimmable and serves as an output for music when entertaining guests, or simply relaxing outdoors.

2)PRACTICAL

Portable lamps give the option to add a layer of light to a room without having to rewire which can be costly and unconventional for some homeowners. This is especially the case for older homes that bring up hidden costs of installing a new fixture which may require more work. In addition, portable lamps are also useful for providing task lighting for sewing, reading, or writing. The Valeo Floor Lamp from Cerno can offer ambient lighting to a space as an alternative for a fixture. The floor lamp is almost 8 feet tall and has an adjustable shade that can be lowered.

3) PORTABLE

Portable lamps are made of durable material but are not fixated to a single spot. Portable lamps can be moved to different areas or rooms that require an additional layer of light or a decorative element. This 2-Light Floor lamp from Dainolite has adjustable arms for versatile use, and has a mid-century modern aesthetic.

4)DECORATIVE

Portable lamps are also a great way to experiment with different styles to create a statement. Some lamps have replaceable shades which can enhance its visual appeal or match current decor. Portable lamps can also be a statement in and of itself, such as oversized floor lamps that can serve as general lighting for a room due to its scale or ornate lamps such as the Lynch Tiffany Table Lamp from Quoizel that has an intricate detailed glass shade.

5) SPACE

Table and Desk Lamps take minimal space, and also creates the illusion of a larger space when they are positioned in certain areas. For instance, when lamps are next to a wall such as when they are on top of a buffet or side table, they create a surface of light that makes the space appear larger. This is ideal in living rooms, dining rooms, and foyers where buffet and side tables are commonly used. The Saga Table Lamp from Dimond Lighting has a chocolate faux silk shade and a complimentary chocolate smoke glass base that provides the added illusion of a larger space.
