A smart dehumidifier has become more common among dehumidifiers in the past few years. Mainly amongst those which are larger than mini dehumidifiers. We’re talking about the ones that will contain above the 12 litre threshold and will cost you upward of £100.
It is however, very easy to get confused with what is meant by a ‘Smart Dehumidifier’. You’d be forgiven for believing that the ‘smart’ is in reference to it being enabled as part of the internet of things (IOT). It is not in relation to the IOT. That does not mean some dehumidifiers aren’t capable of connecting to the internet! Internet enabled dehumidifiers are now a thing of the present!
