About Home is a sacred place. Don’t let bad air ruin it. With Wynd Halo and the Wynd Home Purifier, you can monitor—and physically perfect—your environment. Wynd Halo has 10 sensors to monitor allergens, smoke, germs, pollution, and more. It features a new innovation called Air ID which classifies the actual pollutants in the air so that you can take the right course of action. Wynd Halo pairs seamlessly with the Wynd Home Purifier to remove any contaminants from your environment quickly and automatically.
We take 20,000 breaths every day, but what’s in the air we’re breathing? Wynd Halo can tell you and make it better. Wynd Halo can live anywhere. It houses an internal rechargeable battery, so it can go wherever you go. Wynd Halo monitors the air, and gives you a summary of your environment at a glance. Halo shows the state of the air, and can also identify specific irritants in your environment so that you can take the right course of action. Wynd Halo houses more sensors than any other environmental monitor. It also introduces a new technology called Air ID, which determines the actual composition of your air—from pollen, to pet dander, to smog—so that you can take the right course of action to improve your environment. Wynd Halo fits in anywhere. You can put it in the bedroom, office, or baby’s room—and mount it on the wall using the wall-mount accessory (available as an add-on). Most air quality sensors just measure the general concentration of things (particles or chemicals), but can’t tell you what’s actually there. We think it’s important for you to know whether your air has pollen, forest fire smoke, or smog from the nearby industrial plant. Over the past two years we’ve developed an innovative technology called Air ID. By combining raw sensor data with contextual data from the cloud, Air ID can tell you what you are actually breathing. In response to issues detected via Air ID, the Wynd app can recommend actions to help you stay healthy. Get recommendations from the Wynd app based on Halo's analysis of your environment (iOS and Android) See surrounding air quality and environmental information for a global network of air quality stations via the Air Bubbles network. In addition, the Wynd app can alert you of any major issues in your environment so that you can quickly react to serious issues. Just let Wynd Halo know what you’re doing, and it’ll optimize your environment for that activity. Halo will launch with 5 customizable optimizations. In each setting, Halo can activate connected devices such as purifiers (including the Wynd Home Purifier), thermostats, humidifiers, and lights. Over time, we’ll be adding more optimizations via software updates. To change temperature, light, and more, Halo works with platforms such as Alexa, Nest, and Apple HomeKit. We designed the Wynd Home Purifier to work seamlessly with Wynd Halo. Wynd Halo monitors the air, and the Wynd Home Purifier cleans it up. The Home Purifier uses Halo data to remove allergens, mold, germs, chemicals, odors, and air pollution from your home. The Wynd Home Purifier is able to achieve these rapid cleaning speeds by using 2x the filter surface area and precision turbine engineering to increase air flow while lowering noise - meaning it can clean quickly and quietly. The Wynd Home Purifier isn’t just any air purifier. It’s the most powerful air purifier in its class, able to clean 537 cubic meters of air per hour—or 1,200 square feet, in 30 minutes. * Class is defined as connected (wifi and app-enabled) air purifiers with prices less than $500 USD. The V-Series HEPA filter is designed to clean a broad range of pollutants in your environment, including both particles and gases. The Wynd Home Purifier uses a proprietary HEPA filter that removes particulates and gases, including allergens, mold, germs, toxic odors, air pollution, and more. The Wynd Home Purifier’s filter removes pollutants big and small from the air. In addition, the filter material is embedded with silver to kill germs. In third-party testing, the filter killed 99.97% of staphylococcus aureus and escherichia coli bacteria that was on the material. At its core, Wynd Home Purifier works seamlessly with the Wynd Halo so you shouldn’t need to make any manual adjustments. After pairing with the Halo, the Wynd Home Purifier goes to work when needed to maintain a healthy and clean environment. The Wynd Home Purifier is also smart enough to turn on only when needed. If you’re not home the Purifier can turn down and turn back on a few hours before you come back to create a healthy atmosphere. When you come back it is smart enough to quiet down so you enjoy your time at home. This operation saves both energy and extends filter life. It can also work with your other IOT platforms, like Alexa and Apple HomeKit to control its cleaning power as needed. With automatic optimizations and integration with internet connected devices, your Halo and Home Purifier can automatically optimize the air around you for whatever you're doing. We are honored to be working once again on industrial design with Mike Nuttall, the co-founder of the world famous design firm, IDEO. His focus on making technology products intuitive, elegant, and timeless is core to our philosophy at Wynd, and can be seen in many elements of the Wynd Halo. See below for his narration of the Halo design story. We went through dozens of different designs before finalizing the shape and function of the Wynd Halo Working on the CAD design of the Halo Design of the Wynd v2.0 app, which will support both existing Wynd products as well as the Wynd Halo, Wynd Home Purifier, and future products to come The Wynd Halo houses 10 unique sensors that provide insights into each facet of your environment. Each sensor is tuned to monitor key health and comfort metrics. In particular (no pun intended), the Particulate Matter (PM) sensor inside the Wynd Halo was developed in-house by a team of MIT alums at Wynd. We actually invented the first version of our PM sensor when we launched the Wynd Smart Personal Air Purifier in 2016, and continued improving that sensor over the past two years. The latest version of the Wynd PM Module is highly accurate, measures PM1.0, PM2.5, and PM10, and syncs with the cloud for additional features, including re-calibration. Wynd Halo houses a Particulate Matter (PM) module invented by our company which classifies particles at a highly granular level. Every second over 100,000 readings are analyzed. The new PM sensor uses a blue laser, which has a finer wavelength, to measure particles as small as 0.3 microns (700x smaller than the diameter of human hair). These particles are key elements of both air pollution as well as things like allergens, dander, and germs. Wynd’s PM module uses a blue laser at 402 nm to measure particulates as small as 0.1 microns. Other PM sensors use red lasers which are far less precise. On the hardware, Halo analyzes the measurements from the PM sensor 100,000 times per second to determine the size and fundamentals of various pollutants. The PM module can generate highly detailed particulate models such as this one, which shows the profile of household dust and dander. In addition, Halo has a number of other sensors, including Volatile Organic Compound, Temperature, Humidity, Light, Noise, and others to measure the environment. Wynd Halo also combines measurements from the PM module and other sensors to produce even more useful information about your environment. Most pollution and environmental sensors measure things in generality. For example, particulate sensors report only the concentration levels of dust by size. We wanted to go deeper and ask the question what is the actual composition of the air? Is it pollen, dander, smog, or something else?
