I wanted to make a typical pedestal fan smart because I got bored having to turn on and off manually when it is over the other side of the room and I am on the couch or in the bed. I also wanted to be able to take it off when I went to sleep. Some fans may already do so, but this couldn't. So since I already have automated routines that run when I lay down, add the fan and let it in during the summer sensibly.
Pedestal fan (can also be wall-mounted type, but the boxing type is unlikely to escape).
