With a little bit of help from the smart tech in this dehumidifier, you can keep your home healthy and free of mold and mildew. The simplest models are operated manually (with a knob or keypad), but smart models let you set programs to run automatically and notify you when the target humidity is reached, saving you a lot of time and effort. They also save energy by running only when necessary, a big factor in lowering your electricity bill.
This model combines a compact size with high performance and great value, making it our top smart pick for basements. It is Wi-Fi compatible, allowing you to monitor and control your dehumidifier from anywhere. You can receive push notifications when the water bucket is full, and use voice controls with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
The user-friendly interface features a large digital display showing the current humidity level, and a button to set your target. A notification light will flash if the unit is set to empty or needs maintenance. The device is easy to move from room to room thanks to built-in pockets and casters. It has a removable dust filter that is easy to rinse, and a child lock for peace of mind.
A drainage port allows you to connect a hose for continuous drainage. This feature is a great choice if you need to dehumidify a damp basement or other area with easy access to a drain, and it saves you from having to empty the tank often. However, continuous drainage can add up to higher electric bills over the long term. smart dehumidifier
