Air Wick recently introduced a new Bluetooth-enabled scented oil diffuser that can be controlled with your iPhone.

A diffuser transforms essential oils into a light, fragrant mist to give your home a nice scent. Air Wick's cordless, battery-powered device uses pre-mixed oil refills, eliminating the need to add water separately.

The free Air Wick app for iOS and Android can be used to create scent schedules, adjust scent intensity, set refill reminders, purchase refills, and more. Apple's smart home platform HomeKit is not currently supported.

A starter pack with the diffuser, batteries, and one refill is available for $20 at Walmart, Target, and select other U.S. retailers.

App-enabled diffusers are nothing new, with many options available on Amazon, but Air Wick is a well-known brand and $20 is a decent price. For those who prefer HomeKit, read our review of the VOCOlinc FlowerBud.

I'll go ahead and rank this one down there with the shower you can control from your iPhone. Humanity has (again) reached a new low. So useless.

Friendly reminder that humans and dogs and cats did not evolve under conditions of high concentrations of directly vaporized essential oils (which are otherwise largely safe to ingest and or encounter topically, as we have evolved encountering for eons).

Also that there are many epidemiological cases showing that these highly concentrated vaporized oils are deadly toxic to household pets.

Not to mention several studies and Material Safety Data Sheets showing certain compounds (like vitamin E oil) to be incredibly beneficial when ingested or applied topically, but cause severe respiratory collapse if inhaled in relatively small quantities.

TL;DR: Vaporizing oils in our homes is a brand new frontier of human/animal medical experimentation for which there is practically no precedent scientifically or evolutionarily. I choose not to be a subject of this experiment.

It’s amazing how stupid so many of these IoT products are.

I wonder too how bad the security is on this product.

We're long past the point where folks should have just stopped and revaluated what the hell they're doing with their products, so now we're just going for absurdity instead.
