You can conveniently operate the Dyson air purifier via an app, remote control or a voice assistant (currently only Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri). 📞
Control via remote control
The remote control has its permanent place on the Dyson air purifier. It is magnetically attached to the top of the tower for convenient storage.
The Dyson air purifier can be conveniently controlled from within the room with the remote control.
The remote control includes all functions of the Dyson air purifier. 💫
These are the functions of the remote control:
- Standby On/Off
- Information menu (changes the indications on display)
- Airflow control
- The thermostat control (heat regulation)
- Automatic mode (On / Off)
- Switches fan mode on and off
- Rotation (allows the unit to rotate at different angles)
- Distribution function (airflow direction)
- Sleep timer
- Night mode
Some of these functions come with a preset range. For example, the rotation is done with the following preset angles:
By pressing the button, the unit starts the rotational movement. The angle is shown on the LED display.
Extra tip: The rotation angle can be adjusted individually with the Dyson Link app.
You can call up the following information on the display of the air purifier using the information menu button:
- The indoor air quality of the last 12 seconds (current) or the last 24 hours
- Fine dust values (PM 2.5 or PM 10)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOC)
- Nitrogen dioxide and other oxidising gases
- The remaining service life of the respective filter units
- Connection status to the WLAN network
The sleep timer button allows you to scroll through the time options. When you set a time, the Dyson air purifier switches itself off after the time has elapsed.
In night mode, the unit monitors your air quality and room temperature. However, the air purifier works in a particularly quiet fan setting (level 1-4). In addition, the display lighting is dimmed to ensure a peaceful sleep. 💤
The Dyson Link app provides extensive information and further options for operating the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier.
You can download the Dyson Link app free of charge for Android from the Google Play Store (here) and for Apple's iOS from the App Store (here)
The app has short and detailed instructions for you. Once you've followed it, the Dyson air purifier is connected to the app, and you're ready to go.
The Dyson Link app offers you numerous other options to operate the air purifier individually or obtain details on the air quality. The following options are available with the app:
- Detailed information about indoor air quality
- Information on the air quality of your place of residence
- Information about the filter service life of the individual filter units
- You can set up weekly schedules for the Dyson air purifier
- Individual control of the rotation movement
- Selection of the target temperature
- Complete operation of the unit
The user-friendliness of the app is in the foreground. Despite the many possibilities, Dyson has managed to keep the app clear.
Air quality display in the Dyson Link app
The interface for displaying the air quality is nicely designed in the form of a house.
Here you get all the information about the air quality in your home. Thanks to the WiFi connection, the app also receives current details about the air quality in your home. 🙏
Depending on where you live, the air quality outside can be worrying, but thanks to the Dyson Pure Hot and Cool air purifier, your four walls are usually in the green :)
If you "click" on one of the values, you will get information about the individual values that the Dyson air purifier measures in the home in real-time.
With this information, you will soon be an expert on good air quality.
The state of the filters in the Dyson Link app
You can view the condition of the filters and the service life of the filter units in the filter management. You can also find out which filters are installed in your air purifier. 👍
Timer function and timer scheduling
The timer function is very useful in an organised and routine household. A well-designed weekly timer is also a great advantage in an office or business.
You can select a suitable programme for every day and every time. The air purifier then does its work and switches off automatically when the timer expires. ⏲
Several different plans can also be set for one day.
You can select a desired temperature in the timer plan. The air purifier automatically preheats your office room with clean air before entering the room. This can be very practical and energy-saving in winter! 🌱
The simple timer function can also be used in a much-simplified form. You can simply set a timer. After the set time has elapsed, the smart air purifier switches itself off.
The remote control of the air purifier via the Dyson Link App
The air purifier can be completely controlled with the app. You can also find all functions on the remote control in the app's control function.
The individual functions are provided with a pictorial representation of the Dyson air purifier to make it clearer.
You can completely customise the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier rotation via the app. 💅
To do this, you have to turn the angle of the rotational movement as you need it.
For example, it allows us to rotate the airflow over our large couch with pinpoint accuracy. So we can enjoy the movie night with a cool breeze of clean air even in the height of a UK summer 🌞
The Dyson Link App - Conclusion
We enjoyed the Dyson Link app during our test. In our experience, it was one of the most user-friendly apps we have tested so far.
The animations and designs are lovingly created and appear visually modern but not overloaded or obtrusive.
All functions are given in their entirety. In addition, the air quality data is presented, and the statistics are very informative. 👀
With the programming of timers, the air purifier can be optimally adjusted to your daily needs.
We didn’t find any problems with the software in our review.
Voice control with Alexa and Siri
Currently, the voice control for the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool air purifier can only be used with Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri. However, we have tested the voice control functions with Alexa and Siri.
The Dyson air purifier can be completely controlled via voice assistants. You can also get information about the air quality.
The voice control for the Dyson Pure Hot and Cool was, in our experience, the best we have tested so far. 💪
