Not a lot of stock in Northcote there but might be nation wide so posting for everyone.
$20 for a voice enabled fan is pretty sweet. Previously $49
It's not voice enabled on it's own - but it can link to smart devices like a Google home which you can control with your voice.
Target have 40cm ones for $15 with remote control instead if anyone prefers that.
This one also has a remote
And also a backdoor into your network!
On a serious note. Are there any security issues with these cheap what devices? I have a bunch of cheap smart devices around the house such as wifi wall plugs and all. Has there been any cases?
@Mehrad: All internet of things devices have security issues unless properly configured. Also the network structure could also be configured differently blah blah.. way too much $h!t in that space.
@Mehrad: It's hard to say but cheap consumer devices are unlikely to have great security because it's not an easy selling point and adds cost.
Here's a great example of the issues poorly configured devices can have
@Mehrad: There was a case in 2017 where a casino had 10GB data taken by hackers who exploited a smart fish tank.
I wonder if this works with the TUYA App. I need one that's compatible with Homebridge.
I can see the Tuya logo on the box.
I'd like to know if the oscillation can be enabled/disabled via wifi
(nevermind, saw in the manual that it can.)
went to a few yesterday and none is brisbane.
which area of brisbane
southside. sunnybank and others.
Makes sense, Brisbane is the only place you would be looking for a fan atm. It's like winter here in Adelaide right now.
Darwin averages 31 in winter.
Correct, but now your pulling out the most extreme lol.
Good deal, and good product if it is the same as this Kmart Anko 40cm Wi-Fi Pedestal Fan HEGSM40 review
Same one. I remember when these were $89. Mate got one and they’re great.
wish it was a DC motor fan
Not for $40
You’ll need to spend $130 for a DC, the Xiaomi 2S is probably the best DC for the dollar.
Yeah I got the 2s, nice fan and very quite yet costly in comparision.
Tried to find what wattage this would consume and could not find. I would guess 30W approx.
You don't need to spend $130.
Not even $100
Not even $70
Get real it’s only $20 bucks mate, can’t even buy a kfc family box for $20
Wish it had a Lamborghini and the keys to a mansion on the coast. But that would be silly to think that. Wouldn’t it.
Username checks out (poor man's Lambo, kinda).
My local had this for $10, after i bought 2 there was only 2 left, so didnt post.
Which one ?
If I find one I’m using your barcode
Where in Canberra mate ?
I bought one for $20 2 weeks ago. Wanted another one and last Sunday neither Gungahlin nor Belconnen had one. Got a cheapie $5 one instead. Still looking for another fan.
@tik tok: Belconnen. I bought on 15 April, left 2 maybe a 3rd on shelf I think, ideally a 3rd would have been good, but didnt get it, carrying 2 was enough.
It's a good fan for the price, annoyingly doesn't work with my orbi mesh network as it's a mixed 2.4/5
Sorry, would you elaborate on why it wouldn't work if the orbi is a mixed 2.5/5ghz network?
Thats strange, my 2.4/5 is mixed, smart connect, i haven't separated them, and i was happy to not have to change to just 2.4 to connect like a few other things i have.
Are you also on a mixed mesh network?
I was a bit surprised to find that connecting some 2.4GHz smart devices to my mesh network differs to connecting to my previous mixed 2.4/5GHz network with my non-mesh network.
I'd be keen to hear if anyone has a way around this or if i'm obviously doing something wrong.
On browsing the orbi forums I found the solution was to connect an old 2.4GHz wifi router, which i couldn't be bothered doing.
I have a DLink DSL 3900 Viper AC2600 modem router, some items dont mind the smart connect of having both bands on, others won't connect unless i turn off dual band and just have the 2.4 on, i can then connect the device and then re-engage smart connect dual band,
kmart was shut today right.
Was open after 1.
Winter is coming, any Bluetooth heaters?
Xiaomi wifi heater
WiFi ones at bunnings
I have one of these. I purchased 2 months ago for $20 and didn't post as my store didn't have much stock and didn't think it was national. These are really decent fans. I tend to use the remote more than the app, as it is easy. They fact is has 8 speeds is also really nice. You can also set it up for modes like naturally wind etc.
Ah it's not, but compared to the discounted 49$ 50cm metal blade patio fan that is over kill, was great buy.
Anyone know of any stock at Hurstville or Sylvania stores?
I bought one from the last deal, and I honestly can't recommend it (but maybe for this price). If you don't want to connect it to wifi, then the wifi light will CONSTANTLY BLINK FOREVER - I had to put some duct tape over it. The build quality also makes my kogan dc fan look like a premium model. No auto-off on the screen, and the oscillate mechanism is quite noisy on low speeds.
P.S. Actually I lie, you can get the wifi light to stop blinking if you hold the power button down for 8 seconds. But it comes back as soon as you turn the fan on again, so useless.
I couldn't get this fans WiFi functionality working over a 5ghz or mixed 2.4/5ghz WiFi connection. The only time I could get it to work was with a router that broadcasted an independent 2.4Ghz channel.
I've got the Kogan, but this one seems to be better.
any stock in brisbane?
Just found 7 at Kmart Richmond (Melb)
Anyone able to find any stock in Perth area?
I called about stock in WA, said there was none.
