Reordering Coway air filters is as easy as not doing anything at all

There are plenty of things you can already do by simply touching a button — ordering a car, calling your mom, and now, replacing your air filter. But now, you can reorder an air filter without doing anything at all. On Saturday, Coway announced a new integration with Amazon Dash to make it even easier to bring clean air into your home. The Airmega 300S and 400S from the Coway line have become the first air purifiers to work alongside Amazon Dash Replenishment for automatic filter replacements.

Amazon has been adding a growing number of retailers to its popular Dash buttons, which allow customers to reorder basic supplies with a quick tap of the finger. Need more toilet paper? There’s a Dash button for that. Need more cat food? There’s a Dash button for that, too. After all, why go through the trouble of actually going through Amazon’s two-click purchase process when you only need … one click. Or in the case of this latest integration, no clicks at all.

Coway already has quite a deep integration with the Amazon family. The Wi-Fi-enabled Coway Airmega 300S and 400S are both compatible with Amazon Alexa, which means you can get cleaner, purer air simply by saying so. The addition of Dash, however, helps customers ensure that they always have their necessary dual HEPA air purifying filters.

So how does the Coway know when you’ll soon be in need of a new filter? It’s all thanks to the companion app, which tracks the status of your air filter on a daily basis by using patented sensor technology. When this technology begins to detect potential shortcomings in your filter, or feels that it is unable to purify your air to the same standard, it’ll send a message to Dash Replenishment in order to automatically order a new set.

“We’re excited to expand our integration with Amazon by not only being Alexa-friendly but also integrated with Dash Replenishment,” said Kevin Shim, Director of North American Sales for Coway Airmega’s parent company, Coway. “Replacing air filters on time is critical to ensuring that customers are breathing in clean, pure air. We look forward to offering more technology-friendly updates to help our customers more deeply sync Coway Airmega to their smart home.”

You can purchase a Coway Airmega 300S or 400S unit from the Airmega website. While there are units that don’t come with Alexa or Dash integrations, they’re probably not quite right for your smart home. Pricing starts at $649 for the Wi-Fi-enabled units.

Updated on March 12: Added clarification that the air filter reordering process is 100 percent automated.

Which Ninja Foodi should you buy? All the cookers and air fryers compared

While some of us may find an evening standing at the stovetop therapeutic, or even inspiring, there are just as many folks who would willingly ditch the hours of prep, stirring, and constant pan and oven checks in exchange for the time spent. That's where high-performance small kitchen appliances come into play. Let's look at two types: Multicookers and air fryers.

A multicooker is a compact kitchen appliance that's easy enough to stow away but just as simple to break out and quickly set up when it's needed. Built for speed and convenience, the average cooker allows you to boil, simmer, sauté, grill, and roast a myriad of breakfast, dinner, and dessert recipes using significantly fewer ingredients, with finished meals ready for eating in record time.

Better air quality benefits everyone, but not everyone has the space to install a large air purifier in their home. It's particularly difficult for people who live in smaller studio apartments where floor space is at a premium. The Coway Airmega 250 is the solution -- a miniature air purifier that works in spaces up to 930 square feet without requiring a lot of extra room.

The Coway Airmega 250 features multistage filtration that uses a prefilter, a carbon activated filter, and a certified Green True HEPA filter that removes up to 99.999 percent of harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen, and other allergens. It also removes particles as small as 0.01 microns in size -- smaller than bacteria and many viruses.

Luft Duo is a miniature-sized air purifier that doesn’t use filter replacements

Many people have air purifiers in their homes, but what about in their cars? The Luft Duo makes that possible. It is the world's first portable, filterless air purifier -- and it's making its debut at CES 2021. This means users will not have to purchase expensive filter replacements, but can instead rely on the Luft Duo's UV LED and photocatalytic technology to take dust, pollen, mold, and other pathogens out of the air. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever before are looking for ways to keep their air clean.

The Luft Duo is unique in that while it doesn't need multiple filters, it uses an easily-removable, washable filter. Just give it a gentle wash and let it dry before re-inserting it into the purifier. The filter traps larger particles, while the patented photocatalytic technology makes it possible for the Luft Duo to decompose particles that would pass through traditional HEPA filters -- particles like formaldehyde and other VOCs, mold, and even pathogens. This technology is able to decompose molecules as small as 0.0001 millimeters.
