Coway has introduced a “smart” air purifier that features the company’s most advanced three-stage filtration process along with remote monitoring and air quality updates. The Coway Airmega AP-1512HHS provides clean, purified air to help alleviate asthma and allergy symptoms, curb exposure to secondhand smoke and filter dander from pets.

The product effectively removes 99.97 percent of particulates as tiny as 0.3 micron, including dust, smoke and pollen particles. Weighing 12.3 pounds, the compact unit is designed for use in rooms of up to 325 square feet. The device is equipped with a HEPA air filter as well as a new honeycomb, activated carbon filter made with natural coconut fibers. Features include automatic air speed control with five fan speeds and a real-time air quality indicator.

The Coway Airmega AP-1512HHS also offers WiFi connectivity and smart monitoring via the the Coway IoCare mobile app, which allows users to remotely check air quality in their homes, receive real-time updates and even activate the unit from afar. The model represents an update on the popular Coway AP-1512HH purifier offered by Coway, a Korean provider of home-health technology.
