wow wonder if I should just refuse package for the levoit one that's not wifi and get this company since the filter must be easier to get.

Truly an awful app. I may be returning the entire device due to the "smart" experience. Very shady attempts at collecting everyone's data. Ads in the app for a paid product. And lack of compatibility and automation. Inexcusable.

>Must have internet access to work - Why? I should be able to control it within my own network, from app, from Google Home, and from IFTTT. This device and app should not have any connection to the company's servers.
>Forced to create account - Should not be needed for such a simple product.
>Requires location services - What? Don't force this on people. It isn't needed for the job.

To top it off, the app doesn't even work or stay connected after that! Amazing how hard they dropped the ball on this one.

Coscto sells this one in the warehouse for $139.99. I have not looked into it in detail to see which one is better.

This is the 5500 series and costco is the 5350 series. This one as mentioned above has wifi/bluetooth for smart capabilities. it also has a screen at the top of the machine for real-time read out of air quality level (e.g. 16 ppm) whereas the costco one only has a timer function. Good thing is that filters are readily available at costco.

to be honest, all smart products ask for the same thing. I have another brand with wifi that I bought for $200+ and it even asks for more permissions, I just don't grant them yet it still works,.. I think the main value proposition of this product is its ability to detect air quality level and automatically turn up/down the fan when necessary, especially needed if one lives in a dusty condo. Most good wifi-enabled air purifiers go in the $200 range from what I have observed.
