Awair monitors your home or office’s air quality


Your home’s air quality might be suffering thanks to the traffic or businesses around you, but you might not realize it. Many of the problems in the air can’t be detected without help until they reach fairly serious levels, and so to prevent them from reaching that point we turn to air monitoring technologies. Fortunately, those technologies have become relatively inexpensive over the years and as such have found their way into homes. Awair is the latest example of this, serving as a stereo-like device (it looks like a stereo, is all) that keep tabs on nasties in the air.

Awair is the brainchild of Bitfinder, a San Francisco startup looking to improve your home’s air quality. Awair is a rectangular device that sits on a stand and creates a score based on its analysis of the air it pulls in. This includes basic things like humidity and temperature, as well as more precise things like volatile organic compounds, CO2, and dustiness.

There’s smart home functionality, in that Awair can be connected with other related products like air purifiers and humidifiers, expanding their usefulness by feeding them data. There’s smartphone connectivity, as well, with a related Android and iOS app. Connectivity, quite obviously, happens over the home’s WiFi network.

Awair has gone up for pre-order and will be shipping this fall. The regular price is $199 USD, but those who pre-order from the maker’s website can get it for $149 USD, with extra discounts for larger purchases: $259 USD for two of them, and $479 USD for four of them.
