Airthings View Plus – Advanced Air Quality Monitor
Have you ever wondered if the air around you is pure and hygienic enough to breathe? Even if you live in clean countryside, you are still at risk of breathing harmful components such as radon that can sneak in through your basement with no indication.
In this article, I am going to talk about a cool smart home gadget that can not only monitor the air around you but also send it to your smartphone so you can know the air quality in real-time. Meet Airthings view plus. The company has a range of air quality testers but this is their most popular one.
Advanced Indoor Air Quality Monitoring
Airthings view plus is capable of detecting and measuring matter (PM2.5), carbon dioxide (CO2), radon, VOC (airborne chemicals), humidity, temperature, air pressure and pollen levels. Apart from measuring, it also displays that info on its display.
This product comes with a smartphone app and connects to your wifi for data transfer. This means, you can access this device from anywhere in the world. You can be in Las Vegas and check the air quality in your Austin home.
Airthings view plus features an e-ink display to output the metrics. E-ink is black & white and uses minimal energy, thereby increasing the battery backup of the device.
Battery or USB Powered
The gadget is powered by a battery inside it. If you want, you can also power it with a USB cable. The battery lasts for about 3 years (differs depending on the usage).
If you are a developer or a hobby programmer, you can use their API to do smart home integration, control and whatnot.
