Wobble-free, guaranteed

Each Haiku is also hand-balanced at the Big Ass Fans factory using a 13-step process. This guarantees smooth, silent, wobble-free performance.

Connected smarts

The Haiku is already high-end, but for an extra $150, you'll now be able to add in the connected smarts of SenseMe, which utilizes motion detectors, temperature and humidity sensors, and built-in Wi-Fi.

Adaptive performance

The Haiku with SenseMe can learn from your cooling habits. Once it figures out the temperature you like, it will automatically turn on or speed up whenever it gets too hot.
