Signal and Symphony are the only ceiling fans that support Apple’s HomeKit home automation platform, and they’re also Hunter Fan Company’s first connected home products. The new Hunter Fans will bring the comfort of controlling the fan from the comfort of our couch using your phone.
How are the fans controlled?
We take the example of a person in his house who has multiple Homekit products could at the same time do following:
a) lock the door
b) turn on the lights and
c) turn off the fan
With a Trigger, the fan can be set to come on in specific scenarios, such as when a HomeKit-connected fire alarm detects smoke.
The Symphony and Signal ceiling fans connect to a home’s Wi-Fi network With Homekit support, the fans can be controlled using Siri voice commands and they are able to interface with other HomeKit products like lights and thermostats for a fully connected home experience using Scenes and Trigger.

As we celebrate 130 years, we have several exciting developments to share with our customers, and are proud to kick off 2016 at CES with Symphony and Signal.”
