MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunter Fan Company, the leading manufacturer of ceiling fans, officially released their second, much-anticipated Wi-Fi enabled ceiling fan, the Apache, for purchase. Like its earlier counterparts, the Signal and the Symphony, the Apache exclusively supports Apple HomeKit technology. Following their original debut at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Hunter's the first HomeKit-enabled fans received great recognition and buzz among the top tech news outlets, including a CES 2016 Editor's Choice Award by Reviewed.com/USAToday. The Signal was the first of three Hunter Fan smart fans to become available for purchase on HunterFan.com.
The Apache launch is a step in the right direction for Hunter Fan's unprecedented 2016 new product launch – over 200 new fans – celebrating Hunter's 130th year of creating ceiling fans that consumers trust. From classic to modern, the new product line was expertly curated with both design-centric and technology-savvy consumer in mind. With the current launch of the Apache, consumers can now easily incorporate smart home technology into any inspired space.
"We are thrilled to continue the momentum of our Apple HomeKit supported product line with the launch of the Apache," said John Alexander, CEO. "Our new products are a testament to our continued commitment to un-matched quality, design and performance as well as the brand's determination to bring our customers the latest in ceiling fan innovation at an affordable price."
Apple HomeKit technology allows users to effortlessly and securely control each fan – or a group of fans – from one place using the new iOS 10 Home app or Siri on their iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch. Users can set up HomeKit-enabled products to work together based on triggers, such as having the fan's light turn on the moment the fire alarm detects smoke or creating a situation that automatically turns on the fan's light and locks your front door simultaneously. HomeKit technology provides advanced security with end-to-end encryption and authentication between the fan and the iOS device.
With a more industrial and casual feel, the Apache's exposed hardware, Noble Bronze finish and distressed oak finished blades combine state of the art technology with elevated style. The Apache retails for a cool $429. The Apache is now available now at: HunterFan.com; Amazon.com; Build.com; HomeDepot.com; Lowes.com; Menards.com; and in lighting showrooms nationwide.
