Best Smart Oil Diffusers in 2020
Whether you're having a hard time sleeping, need to unwind after a tough day, or simply want to smell the sharp, cool scent of peppermint on a snowy winter night, having a smart oil diffuser can totally help with all of those things. And today's clever contraptions come with their own apps, or can be controlled via smart home devices, like Amazon's Echo range. If you're new to the world of oil diffusers, then welcome, because here are the best ones available on the market right now.
Popular with a large capacity
Offering a simple set-up process, this smart diffuser can be controlled via the TuyaSmart app or you can connect it up to your Amazon Echo device and control it hands-free with Alexa. It has a generous 700mol water tank which means it can operate through the night if required, and when it's out of water it automatically stops working. Alternatively, you can activate a one, three, or six hour timer on the unit as well as change the color it glows.
Stylish and smart
If you're someone who likes their smart tech to have a little bit more of a modern, artsy edge, then take a peek at the KisoSmart Wi-Fi Smart Oil Diffuser. This lovely wood grain diffuser has its own app but also works with Alexa and Google Assistant. With the app, you can adjust the level of misting, select when the KisoSmart Wi-Fi Smart Oil Diffuser goes on, activate a timer, and change between one of seven colors it emits.
Diffuse like a pro
This attractive wooden option has a decent 500ml water tank and can be programmed to run for a certain time every day, or for specific days of the week. Controls are via the companion app and it's also Wi-Fi enabled and compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home for voice control. Similar to the other models we're featuring this also offers seven different color lights to be used as mood lighting or a night light.
Light up your life
Another option that can be voice-controlled with Amazon Echo and Google Home devices, this also has a free iOS and Android app available from Birgus which also controls the company's other smart home products. You can cycle through the light colors, or set one hue, choose between light or heavy omnidirectional mist and set daily, weekly or monthly timers. The 300ml tank should cover you for eight hours on the lower setting.
Alexa and Google Home Compatible
Offering "intelligent aromatherapy" this good-looking diffuser has a 400ml water tank for up to 12 hours of continuous mist, generated by ultrasonic frequencies. There's a quick start guide included so you can hook this up to Amazon Echo or Google Home devices, as well as a companion app for smartphone control. Once set up, you can control the LED color, mist intensity, timer settings and scheduling.
Colorful and practical
Looking for a smart oil diffuser that'll light up your life? Then you might want to take a peek at the YeYo Smart Aroma Diffuser. This diffuser works with an app, allowing you to control the color via a precise color wheel, when your device turns on, how long it will run for, and even a timer so you can have your favorite oil misting when you walk in the front door. This is also a Bluetooth-enabled speaker, so you can play music from your smartphone on it, useful if you're short on space.
