Wi-Fi Connect

Remote control of the APP and the device can be done via Wi-Fi. But before that, you need to know some tricks for pairing:
1) Before you connect, you need to be close enough so that the signal won't break on the wall or insulation of the house
2) Buy an extra Wi-Fi mesh or repeater to increase the signal strength to make the pairing of the devices more successful
3) The app currently supports only 2.4 GHz network. Please turn off the 5 GHz network on the router to make the connection work more smoothly.

Direct Connect

When you connect your device via the direct connection mode of APP, you only have an effective distance of 40m. Therefore, it's fast and easy in a network-free environment.

· It must be connected to a grounded electric source to avoid accidents and damage
· Make sure you have the right power supply to avoid electrical issues
· It is not suggestible to use an extension cord as well as a power adaptor
· Use the control panel or remote to set your desired level of humidity
· The surface in which it is set to operate must be leveled and steady
· Do not position the discharge and inlet onto a wall
· Never tamper with the internal components while the unit is running
· Always maintain a 6ft. distance from any form of obstruction
· Avoid deploying it in areas with a high amount of corrosive materials
· Make sure to properly unplug it before deploying it to another area
· Never leave it plugged when not in use
· When cleaning, use a damp cloth dipped in mild soap solution in wiping its exterior
· Remember to check the inlet and outlet for any blockages
· Annually check up the coils for maintenance
· You may use a foaming coil cleaner for cleaning the coils
· Confirm that the cords are cleaned from any debris and are properly wrapped and secured for storage
· Make sure to properly dry it before storing
· If the unit gets flooded, make sure you completely let it dry by carefully opening it before attempting to reconnect it
· Seek professional help for other complex issues

How the Alorair Storm Elite Works

Alorair Storm Elite is fitted with a humidity level sensing device called a humidistat. The purpose of the feature is to automatically detect when your space needs drying. Once the air conditions fall outside the specs set on the humidistat, the machine automatically draws air across the evaporator coils. The coil cools the air and condenses it into a liquid form. In a continuous process, the air is passed over a dry and hot coil before it is pumped back into the space around the room.

Do what I want to do. Will definitely buy again
By 'Edwin Dickerson', Reviewed on September 14, 2020
I have been dealing with a serious humidity problem in an apartment. Using my own hygrometer, the initial humidity was in the range of 85% to 87%, and it even got moldy on the wooden surfaces of my sofa, coffee table, and kitchen. Fortunately, after extensive online research, I decided to buy an AlorAir® Storm Elite dehumidifier and it arrived within a week. This product is impressive. So far, after 12 hours of use, the humidity level has dropped to about 52-54%. My apartment is no longer boring, I feel I can breathe without pain. This is an incredible machine. I highly recommend this product.

This is the first large-capacity dehumidifier we have, which can be connected to the house HVAC system for whole-house dehumidification by using pipe options. The humidity can be easily maintained at 50%. The amazing thing is that the air quality has become better, a win-win situation!
The effect is very good, dehumidification and improvement of air quality
By 'Nadeem Conrad', Reviewed on August 17, 2020
The Storm Elite dehumidifier is easy to move and dehumidifies efficiently. In fact, I once used 2 small-capacity dehumidifiers in the finished basement at the same time, and all of these were continuously carried out, and the humidity hardly met my needs. In this way, Storm Elite can complete the entire basement in one unit, and it can be as dry as I want. Another advantage is that it can help improve indoor air quality and is definitely recommended.

Remove a lot of moisture in the air!
By 'Ben Clarke', Reviewed on August 04, 2020
I am not a person who writes many reviews, but this dehumidifier is worth a look! During the quarantine period, we have turned the basement (about 3,000 square feet) into a temporary gym, but as the weather warms and inappropriate moisture enters the house, it is like exercising in a swamp. We purchased the unit based on reviews. We installed it in the basement and we let it run for about four hours. The first thing I noticed was that there was no dew on the walls. This difference is real! The relative humidity has dropped to 50%. A powerful unit is worth recommending.
First-class dehumidifier
By 'Federico Hail', Reviewed on July 27, 2020
Great product! I am very satisfied with the decision to buy this device. I read a lot of comments before deciding on a name I have never heard. From day one, it worked like a charm! The description says that it can be used for carpet and laundry drying, and it does absorb water from the air, as well as from carpets and wet clothes. Not only that, but it also helps to improve indoor air quality. We no longer need to spray air fresheners everywhere to cover up the peculiar smell of the house.
