New indoor air quality monitoring system - automatically tracks VOC PM2.5 temperature humidity.
Pollution is a global problem, here in the U.S. and around the world. The Foobot air quality monitor is here to help. It makes a great housewarming, graduation or Father's Day gift. It can be purchased in the states for $199 on Amazon or through www.foobot.io.
A must for your home, office or workshop, Foobot is the first air quality monitor which gives users a clear and visual understanding of how good the air quality is, and the knowledge to take small steps to improve it; benefitting the whole family’s long term health.
Do you know about PM2.5’s? This is pollution generated from exhaust fumes, factories, ash and more. As air monitors go, only Foobot measures this. There is no point in assessing indoor air quality when there is polluted air coming from outside which you are unaware of and cannot measure. Data from day one is stored in cloud application so users can learn from the historic data to see what causes spikes in air quality in their home and take steps to change behaviors.
Most consumers want to connect an air purifier to their sensor monitor and with Foobot can monitor everything which affects air quality in the home, including PM2’s (PM or PM2.5). Users can even purchase an inexpensive Wi Fi plug and connect your air purifier to Foobot to both monitor and see where they can improve. Foobot can also connect to smart devices such as Google, Nest and Amazon Echo or to dozens of devices via IFTTT.
Foobot is available in the UK and US
When any pollutants exceed healthy levels, Foobot will relay the necessary information allowing Alexa to talk about the problem to you via voice and suggest possible solutions. Foobot can essentially be an active part of the smart home ecosystem helping trigger the ventilation, filtration, purification system or appliances. With the help of IFTTT, Foobot can connect to 120+ home appliances.
Foobot uses internal sensors to check for pollution in the form of chemicals and particulate matter, which are up to five times more common indoors as a result of confinement and alerts you via its companion app and the LEDs on the device itself. The device is sensitive to:
• PM2.5s – Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 micrometers, like dust, pollen and pet dander
• VOCs – Volatile organic compounds, toxic gases like formaldehyde and ammonia. This sensor is also sensitive to carbon monoxide, a potentially dangerous gas.
• Carbon dioxide – Exhaled naturally from humans. Not itself harmful, but indicative of poor circulation. This is measured via data from other sensors.
• Humidity – Low humidity can cause irritation. Excessive humidity let mold and dust mites grow.
• Temperature – Mostly for comfort, but still important to optimize
Foobot will take you just 2-5 minutes from the moment you open the box to start receiving data on your phone. No need to read thick manuals nor become an engineer. Just plug it in, download the app, sync your Foobot, and receive the data.:Completely re-designed at the beginning of 2017, the new version of Android and iOS app is very smooth, easy to use, and reliable. Get real-time data on your phone every 5 minutes, no matter where you are, hassle and glitch free. *Foobot’s sensors need 6 days to “warm-up”: when you take Foobot out of its box, there’s a mini plastic foil wrapped around the sensors. It takes up to 6 days to the device to remove it. Expect accurate readings after 6 days.
It's nice to know that once you set it up your Foobot, you can forget about it. Foobot will take care of keeping the air quality of your home within safe levels automatically. Get your Foobot now.
