Molekule, a breakthrough air purification company, has grown its retail footprint with Apple. Molekule’s Air Mini+ air purifier model will now be available for purchase via the Apple website and at Apple stores throughout North America. Air Mini+ is the very first Apple HomeKit-certified air purifier sold through Apple. As an Apple HomeKit-compatible device, customers will now be able to control their device through the Home app and Siri on their iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac or HomePod. This retail expansion marks another chapter in Molekule’s ongoing growth as an innovative, tech-forward company.
Air Mini+ will be sold throughout the U.S. and Canada on Apple.com and in stores upon full reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic. The device will also be available immediately online on Apple.com for U.S. and Canadian customers. The Air Mini+ retails for $499 USD or $749 CAD while PECO-Filter replacements retail for $115 CAD.
Apple and Air Mini+ Bring Air Purification to Home Automation
Air Mini+ is one of Molekule’s most advanced air purifiers. Like all Molekule purifiers, Air Mini+ is powered by patented, revolutionary Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology. Developed over 25 years by research scientists, PECO works at the molecular level to destroy airborne pollutants like allergens, dander, mold, bacteria, viruses, and bacteria. PECO technology is the first of its kind and produces no harmful byproducts like ozone. In fact, it is scientifically proven to reduce ozone. Air Mini+ comes equipped with a particle sensor that detects how much particulate matter is present in the air. The device’s Auto Protect mode uses the particulate matter levels detected by the sensor to adjust the device’s fan speed automatically to provide efficient air purification. Both Auto Protect mode and the particle sensor bring accuracy and automation to indoor air management.
This level of automation makes Air Mini+ the perfect device for added HomeKit compatibility, through Apple. This new smart home compatibility enables users to control their device through the Home app and Siri on their iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac or HomePod. This marks Molekule’s first step into smart home compatibility, making it a part of a connected home ecosystem. Integrating Apple and Molekule products will allow users to create more streamlined, automated routines and grant them easy control over interaction with their devices. Air Mini+ is designed for rooms of up to 250 square feet, making it perfect for home offices, bedrooms, and nurseries. With Apple, air purification is now more efficient and streamlined than ever.
“The face of today’s air pollutants is rapidly changing to include things like toxic chemicals from smoke, in addition to bacteria and airborne viruses. We believe this air pollution challenge needs new and advanced technology,” said Jaya Rao, CEO of Molekule. “The expansion of Molekule Air Mini+ to include HomeKit compatibility and availability in Apple stores brings that vision to even more people and enables us to create user experiences that meet the needs of today’s consumers.”
Patented PECO Technology Tackles Indoor Air Pollution
Indoor air pollution is a major global health concern. It is a common and complex problem for many homes and offices and is not always easy to detect. Molekule’s award-winning, proprietary PECO technology can destroy a wide range of pollutants, from viruses, bacteria, and VOCs to dust-mite dander, pollen, and others, and it does so at the molecular level. Molekule air purifiers are whisper quiet and iPhone app enabled. PECO technology has been validated as effective by various independent, third-party air quality testing laboratories. Molekule testing papers and technology reports are available to view here. Each consumer device comes with a 30-day trial period.
As air quality worsens globally, Molekule’s PECO technology is a cutting-edge solution for the increase in pollutants facing our world today. Molekule air purifiers like Air Mini+ help provide a layer of protection against dangerous airborne pollutants like viruses, mold, and bacteria. Once HomeKit compatible, customers can conveniently and effectively control their Molekule air purifiers through the Home app and Siri on their iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac or HomePod. Molekule uses groundbreaking, proprietary technology to purify the air, and now, it becomes the first Homekit certified air purifier to be sold through Apple, expanding Apple’s ecosystem to include your home’s air purification system like never before.
Continued Growth With Expansion Into Apple Retail: A Molekule Review
Molekule’s expansion into Apple retail stores marks the company’s continued growth. Molekule’s flagship product is Molekule Air, a PECO-technology-powered air purifier designed for rooms of up to 600 square feet. This device is ideal for larger rooms or offices. The sleek design and leather handle make it easy to incorporate into any room in need of air purification. Following the success of the Air, Molekule released Air Mini, a more compact air purifier designed for smaller rooms. Now, customers can get the same PECO purifying power for rooms of up to 250 square feet. The smaller design features a wool felt handle and weighs just over seven pounds for easier portability. All Molekule home devices include 360-degree air intake and are designed with modern aesthetics in mind, so they blend in beautifully with your home or office decor without looking out of place or adding unnecessary bulk.
This year, the company has introduced three new air purifier models with more sophisticated capabilities: Air Mini+, now available for purchase via Apple.com, Air Pro and Air Pro RX. Ever attuned to customer feedback, the Molekule Air Mini+ was developed in response to customer requests for a particle sensor and smarter automation. Air Mini+ shares the same specifications as Air Mini, except that it has a vegan leather handle and a particle sensor that works together with Auto Protect mode to provide transparency and efficiency when purifying air. These additional features make Air Mini+ one of Molekule’s smartest air purifiers.
Molekule also released the Air Pro RX this year, which has FDA 510(k) Class II medical device clearance. Air Pro RX is intended for medical purposes to destroy airborne viruses and bacteria. It can purify the air in rooms over 600 square feet and can destroy airborne viruses and bacteria. A study found that the RX’s PECO technology destroyed 99.9994 percent of the RNA virus MS2 bacteriophage on the filter within 24 hours. This makes Air Pro RX ideal for use in operating rooms, emergency units, ICUs, and other healthcare facility spaces or in offices when employees return to work. It’s also ideal for use in any environment that requires a low-microbe environment, such as wineries, distilleries, and breweries.
Molekule Air, Air Mini, Air Mini+ and Air Pro are all app-enabled for iOS and Android, proving the company’s commitment to a tech-forward approach to air purification. Molekule has been at the forefront of revolutionizing the way we purify air since its inception. Its recent entry as an Apple HomeKit compatible device and retail expansion with Apple further solidifies its position as a leader in revolutionizing the air purification market.
Molekule’s core mission is to bring clean indoor air to everyone, everywhere. The company’s retail expansion with Apple helps further this mission as it reaches consumers where they are by bringing together home automation and advanced air purification. Molekule’s innovative, proprietary PECO technology, developed over 25 years of research, is capable of destroying microscopic pollutants, including mold, viruses, VOCs, common household allergens, bacteria, and more. Molekule has always used science to revolutionize the air purification industry in ways never seen before. PECO air purification technology has been rigorously tested and validated by various independent third-party labs, and it also undergoes continuous internal testing.
Air pollution is a growing global health concern that accounts for about seven million deaths a year, according to the World Health Organization. This makes Molekule’s work to fight for clean air even more vital. Molekule works actively with scientists, policymakers, and doctors to offer a novel approach to air purification. Together, Molekule and Apple are working to make air purification more accessible by merging air purification with a smart home ecosystem and making air purifiers available in a tech retail environment. Many Molekule customers are satisfied with the effectiveness of their devices. You can check out some customer Molekule reviews here.
