Does not work as advertised


The wifi connectivity connects, however, if i leave the home or my phone disconnects from the wifi I no longer am able to connect to the machine. This indicates false advertising is out there. They say your supposed to be able to connect to the machine when your at work, or away from home, etc. This is not true.

The sensor on the machine or the software has an issue, not sure which, because the fan speed on auto keeps going up and down, however, the stats on the app stay constant. Fan speed goes up an down within a matter of seconds like its confused, very weird. If this gives me too many issues going forward (had it for a week) I wont be buying from dyson again.

Already had three other machines with defects, #1 stopped working properly after a while (pure hot cool no link) #2 Came out of the box not working at all and I had lots of trouble returning to dyson (pure cool link desk) #3 overheated (pure cool tower not a link device) #4 is this one (pure cool link tower) which i decided to try link since i really didn't get to before and I am highly disappointed. Quality control does not seem to be there for such a pricey item. Oh well was hoping it would work. The poor development of the app mixed with too many hardware issues makes this a no go for me.

Developer Response

Hi 50dots, the app should work outside of your home Wi-Fi, as long as you have an internet connection via 3/4G or another Wi-Fi network. If this is not the case then we'd like to hear from you to investigate this issue for you, please email us on The purifier when set to 'auto-mode' will change fan speed depending on the air quality of the room, to meet the target air quality, you should see this change over time on the app's air quality graphs. If you want a constant speed you can set the fan speed manually. Hope this helps, Craig - Dyson Connected Team.

Requires troubleshooting occasionally


I have a pure cool link hepa filter and have been satisfied with the machine but not so much with the app. My biggest pet peeve was my graphs would regularly stop recording even though I had continuous monitoring activated. So far I have seemed to solve that by updating my iPhone and turning off continuous monitoring, closing the app, reopening it and reenabling continuous monitoring. It hasn’t stopped recording in over a week after doing that. I usually don’t have problems with the iPhone remote disconnecting, but I did have had the unit disconnect from WiFi when moving the dyson from my bedroom to my living room and it kept giving an error when I tried to reconnect to WiFi. I actually do like the iPhone control and can use it when I’m outside of the house. I didn’t think it was a feature that I would use but it comes in handy if I forget to turn the device off when leaving the house or if I know I will have guests over and I want to minimize household odors.

App doesn’t work


I ordered my new Dyson pure cool Air purifier. The set up for the app seemed easy enough however it just keeps failing connection repeatedly. I tried unplugging machine for a while unplug my router and making sure I was on a 2.4 G network. It’s very frustrating if I don’t figure it out I’ll probably return this in the next 30 days trial. The fan itself is very nice and I am enjoying it immensely but I would like to use it with the app.

Update: Emailed support on a holiday and they responded right away. I just deleted the app and reinstalled and that worked. Very happy now, like all the options in the app and the integration into Alexa, but I wish the unit connected with Alexa directly like a smart light.
