About

Home is a sacred place. Don’t let bad air ruin it. With Wynd Halo and the Wynd Home Purifier, you can monitor—and physically perfect—your environment. 

Wynd Halo has 10 sensors to monitor allergens, smoke, germs, pollution, and more. It features a new innovation called Air ID which classifies the actual pollutants in the air so that you can take the right course of action. Wynd Halo pairs seamlessly with the Wynd Home Purifier to remove any contaminants from your environment quickly and automatically.

 We take 20,000 breaths every day, but what’s in the air we’re breathing? Wynd Halo can tell you and make it better. 

Wynd Halo can live anywhere. It houses an internal rechargeable battery, so it can go wherever you go.

Wynd Halo houses more sensors than any other environmental monitor. It also introduces a new technology called Air ID, which determines the actual composition of your air—from pollen, to pet dander, to smog—so that you can take the right course of action to improve your environment. 

Wynd Halo fits in anywhere. You can put it in the bedroom, office, or baby’s room—and mount it on the wall using the wall-mount accessory (available as an add-on).

 Most air quality sensors just measure the general concentration of things (particles or chemicals), but can’t tell you what’s actually there. We think it’s important for you to know whether your air has pollen, forest fire smoke,  or smog from the nearby industrial plant.

Over the past two years we’ve developed an innovative technology called Air ID. By combining raw sensor data with contextual data from the cloud, Air ID can tell you what you are actually breathing.

In response to issues detected via Air ID, the Wynd app can recommend actions to help you stay healthy.

Halo will launch with 5 customizable optimizations. In each setting, Halo can activate connected devices such as purifiers (including the Wynd Home Purifier), thermostats, humidifiers, and lights. Over time, we’ll be adding more optimizations via software updates.

To change temperature, light, and more, Halo works with platforms such as Alexa, Nest, and Apple HomeKit. 

We designed the Wynd Home Purifier to work seamlessly with Wynd Halo. Wynd Halo monitors the air, and the Wynd Home Purifier cleans it up. The Home Purifier uses Halo data to remove allergens, mold, germs, chemicals, odors, and air pollution from your home.

The Wynd Home Purifier achieves rapid cleaning speeds by using 2x the filter surface area of typical purifiers and precision turbine engineering. This design increases airflow while lowering noise—meaning it can clean quickly and quietly.

The Wynd Home Purifier isn’t just any air purifier. It’s the most powerful air purifier in its class, able to clean 537 cubic meters of air per hour—or, 1,200 square feet in 30 minutes.

* Class is defined as connected (wifi and app-enabled) air purifiers with prices less than $500 USD. 

The V-Series HEPA filter is designed to clean a broad range of pollutants in your environment, including both particles and gases.

The Wynd Home Purifier uses a proprietary HEPA filter that removes particulates and gases, including allergens, mold, germs, toxic odors, air pollution, and more. 

The Wynd Home Purifier’s filter removes pollutants big and small from the air.

In addition, the filter material is embedded with silver to kill germs. In third-party testing, the filter killed 99.97% of staphylococcus aureus (staph) and escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria that was on the material. 

At its core, Wynd Home Purifier works seamlessly with the Wynd Halo so you shouldn’t need to make any manual adjustments. After pairing with the Halo, the Wynd Home Purifier goes to work when needed to maintain a healthy and clean environment.

The Wynd Home Purifier doesn't just operate on full blast all day: It only turns on when needed. With smart scheduling, if you’re not home, the purifier can turn down automatically. It turns up a couple hours before you get home, so that the air's fresh when you return—and it even lowers its volume when you're home, so that you can enjoy a quiet atmosphere. Smart scheduling saves electricity and extends filter life.

It can also work with other IOT platforms, like Alexa and Apple HomeKit, to control its cleaning power.    

With automatic optimizations and integration with internet connected devices, your Halo and Home Purifier can automatically optimize the air around you for whatever you're doing.

We are honored to be working once again on industrial design with Mike Nuttall, the co-founder of the world-famous design firm, IDEO. His focus on making technology products intuitive, elegant, and timeless is core to our philosophy at Wynd, and can be seen in many elements of the Wynd Halo. See below for his narration of the Halo design story.

The Wynd Halo houses 10 unique sensors that provide insights into each facet of your environment. Each sensor is tuned to monitor key health and comfort metrics.

When we needed a PM (particulate matter) sensor for our first product in 2015, we realized there wasn’t one available that was right for us—so we got our in-house team of MIT alums to invent one. Since then, we’ve had a lot of time to improve it. The latest version is highly accurate, measures various particle sizes, syncs with the cloud, and automatically recalibrates. 

Wynd Halo houses a particulate matter (PM) module which classifies particles at a highly granular level. Every second, over 100,000 readings are analyzed.

We also improved the laser: The new PM sensor uses a blue laser—which has a finer wavelength—to measure particles as small as 0.1 microns (700x smaller than the diameter of human hair). These particles are key elements of pollution, allergens, dander, and germs.

Wynd’s PM module uses a blue laser at 402 nanometers to measure particulates as small as 0.1 microns. Other PM sensors use red lasers which are far less precise.

On the hardware, Halo analyzes the measurements from the PM sensor 100,000 times per second to determine the size and fundamentals of various pollutants.

The PM module can generate highly detailed particulate models, such as this one—which shows the profile of household dust and dander.

In addition to particulate matter, Halo includes a number of other sensors, including volatile organic compound (VOC), temperature, humidity, light, noise, and others—so that you can get the full profile of your environment. 

Wynd Halo combines measurements from all of its sensors to produce actionable information about your environment.

Most pollution sensors measure things in generality. For example, particulate sensors report only report dust concentration and size. We wanted to go deeper and ask the question: What is the actual composition of the air? Is it pollen, dander, smog, or something else?

Using a combination of hardware sensors, machine learning algorithms, and cloud data, Wynd Halo can determine the actual composition of pollutants in your air—from plant pollen to traffic pollution. Knowing the composition of what’s in your air is fundamental to taking the right action.

The Wynd Home Purifier was specifically designed to maximize airflow. Most purifiers use one filter, but ours uses two: This doubles the air intake area, so that the purifier can output massive amounts of air. Dual filters create super-fast cleaning speeds and significantly lengthen filter life.

The purifier houses a powerful turbofan which spins at 987 RPM to clean your space quickly. At max, the Wynd Home Purifier generates 537 cubic meters of air per hour, which is enough to clean a 1,200 square foot space in under 30 minutes.

We created Wynd out of a need to enable healthy and comfortable environments for ourselves and our families wherever we go. 

Ray (founder) frequently traveled to Asia, where poor air quality is a well-known problem. He hated the way pollution made him feel, and wanted to be able to take healthy air with him on the go. We launched our first product, a smart and portable air purifier, on Kickstarter in 2016 and it became the most funded air purifier ever. 

We are excited to be back and introduce two products, Wynd Halo and Wynd Home Purifier, that bring worry-free, fresh air to your home. 

Risks and challenges

As with any smart hardware project, there are natural risks and challenges in engineering and manufacturing. The final manufacturing timeline could face delays due to technical difficulties, supply chain issues, and other reasons.

However, we've done our best to minimize risks for backers: We’ve mass produced multiple products in the tens of thousands of units before, including the Wynd Personal Purifier on Kickstarter in 2016. In addition, we already have fully working prototypes that have demonstrated all the key functionality. We also have already been working with our factory for over half a year in preparing for the evaluation, design, and production validation phases to come. Our electronics and firmware are also at an advanced stage. In addition, the accompanying Wynd app is being developed and on track.

We'll do our best to be as transparent as possible and keep you informed, and work hard to resolve any issues as they may arise. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly.
