Last year, Dyson released its first ever air purifier, the Dyson Pure Cool. I loved the silent operation of the unit and the fact that it could be used as a fan in hot weather as well as a purifier. And of course, as with all Dyson Canada products, the sleek, modern design was instantly appealing! Now, Dyson has made a good thing even better with the release of the Dyson Pure Cool Link, an air purifier that contains all the previous features of the original design and also lets me monitor air quality with the Dyson Link app!
I received the Dyson Pure Cool Link Tower in White to review and my fiance had it set up in the living room the day it arrived. With a remote to control the purifier power and fan level, it was the perfect way to cool our room on a hot summer’s day as well as making the air more breathable. But what I really wanted to do was test out the way that the Dyson Link app increased the air purifier’s functionality, so I grabbed my smartphone and got ready to connect.
Setting up the purifier on my home WiFi system was a step-by-step process that started with downloading the Dyson Link app, available free of charge for Android and iOS operating systems. Then I selected the “Connect a New Device” option and entered information about my WiFi network and my purifier. Initially, I had problems getting the purifier to connect to the system, so I called the Dyson help line to walk me through the process. The staff were incredibly helpful and suggested a few different solutions. Eventually, using my fiance’s iPhone to connect solved the problem, and instantaneously connected my phone as well!
