Humidifier and fan
Our take on the Dyson AM10 by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
A smart humidifier
Dyson's AM10 humidifier uses a bladeless fan to distribute humidified air evenly throughout a large room. It measures temperature and humidity for accurate climate control, and it's certified asthma & allergy friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. The remote control includes a sleep timer so the humidifier doesn't run all night.

Overview: The Dyson AM10 Humidifier and Fan can help keep your living space at the proper humidity. Dry air caused by most heating and cooling systems can be unhealthy, and can cause you discomfort. This cool-mist, ultrasonic type of humidifier introduces moist air into the room without the use of heating elements. Dyson's patented air multiplier technology projects the air into the room evenly and quietly. The AM10 kills 99.9% of bacteria in the water so you're breathing clean air. The humidifier and fan comes with a separate power supply and a remote control.
Ultraviolet Cleanse: The AM10 features Ultraviolet Cleanse technology to kill 99.9% of all bacteria in the water tank. This takes place before the water is converted to mist and projected into the room. A UV-C emitter in the base exposes all of the water in the tank to ultraviolet light to eliminate the bacteria. Conventional cool mist humidifiers can emit bacteria into the air within two minutes of turning it on. Others have a wet wick or sponge filter that can harbor harmful bacteria like E. coli. The Dyson AM10 humidifier is certified "asthma and allergy friendly" by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
Water Tank: The AM10's water tank holds approximately 3 liters (6.34 pints) of cold tap water. With a full tank, the humidifier should run for at least 10 hours, depending upon the humidity setting. No scents or oils should be added to the water.
Air Multiplier Technology: The Humidifier/Fan has an energy-efficient, brushless DC motor in its base. The air intake draws air through the base from several directions. Using technologies found in turbochargers and jet engines, the Humidifier generates powerful airflow. Air is cleared through a 2.5mm aperture and over an airfoil-shaped ramp. It is redirected by a focus ramp, which projects a powerful stream of air toward the user. The Humidifier/Fan does not use blades so it is completely safe. The airflow can be varied over 10 levels using the supplied remote control. The Dyson Humidifier is extremely quiet, and was awarded the Quiet Mark by the Noise Abatement Society.
Operating Modes: The Dyson AM10 features automatic and manual operating modes. In Automatic Mode, the unit selects a comfortable humidity level for the room based on the current humidity level and ambient air temperature. Once the room reaches the appropriate humidity, the AM10 will switch on and off as necessary to maintain that level. In Manual Mode, you can set the desired humidity level from 30% to 70%. Like the Auto mode, the unit will turn on and off to maintain the set humidity level.
Remote Control: The supplied remote control gives you more control than the onboard controls. Onboard controls let you power the device on or off, and adjust the humidity level. The remote also lets you change the airflow level (from 1 to 10), toggle between Humidifier and Fan only modes, set or cancel the Sleep Timer (variable from 15 minutes to 9 hours), and switch from Automatic to Manual Mode. When not in use, the remote has a built-in magnet that allows you to dock it to the top of the unit. The remote is powered by a single CR 2032 Lithium cell battery.
