PCWorld reporter Chanelle Bessette today published an article explaining the concept of the Internet of Things and featured Big Ass Fans® as a key player in the introduction of connected smart home devices.
Bessette highlighted how Big Ass Fans’ Haiku® with SenseME™ smart ceiling fan works with the Nest Learning Thermostat™ to lower air conditioning bills.
