Awair 2nd edition tracks invisible fine dust levels in addition to other key air quality factors with laser accuracy to help keep homes safe and healthy
Awair, the creators of intelligent air quality monitors for homes and enterprise, today launches the Awair 2nd Edition, a sophisticated solution for helping consumers understand and optimize the health of their indoor air quality. The Awair 2nd Edition empowers consumers with real-time insights on air quality to help them breathe easier, reduce allergy or asthmatic symptoms and even keep their skin clearer. Awair 2nd Edition is now available on www.getawair.com for $199.
The Awair 2nd Edition monitors the five key air pollutants that can significantly impact a person’s health: fine dust, chemicals (Volatile Organic Compounds), CO2, humidity, and temperature. It provides more acute readings of “Fine Dust” levels (or PM2.5), which is typically very difficult to detect yet easy to breathe in. People can be exposed to fine dust through everyday indoor activities like cooking, burning candles or operating fireplaces and space heaters. If inhaled, Fine Dust can be absorbed into the bloodstream and can cause or exacerbate major health issues like asthma, heart disease, respiratory inflammation and certain cancers. Fine Dust has also been linked to some birth defects in infants.
“When thinking about how we can be more helpful and add more value for our current and future Awair consumers across the world, it was clear to us that Fine Dust is the factor that we needed to address more closely with our products. We were especially alarmed with the sharp increase in harmful Fine Dust levels we saw right here in San Francisco during the instances of several California wildfires last year – and those were happening hundreds of miles away! Our goal has always been to empower our customers with the knowledge they need to keep their homes and families safe and Awair 2nd Edition will help them do just that,” says Ronald Ro, founder of Awair.
The Awair 2nd Edition further simplifies the way users can track their air health. Air quality levels are shown directly on the device’s LED display to help users ‘see the invisible’ at a glance. The device can also be customized to optimize air quality for a variety of profiles such as productivity, baby health, sleep, allergies and more. Crafted from North American walnut and compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant, Nest, IFTTT and more, the Awair 2nd Edition is the perfect addition to the stylish smart home.
Data from the device are analyzed and displayed within the free partner app, which delivers real-time notifications that let users know when their air needs attention. The app also provides personalized recommendations curated by experts and decades of research on how users can make improvements to their air quality. For example, if the device senses a sharp increase in Chemical (VOC) levels, the user would be shown a recommendation that offers various solutions that increase ventilation or identifies the source. As more data is collected, the app can provide deeper analysis of trends and improvement of air quality over time.
The Awair 2nd edition also includes the Sleep Report feature within the app that uses an algorithm to help users optimize their bedroom for a good night’s rest. With 27% of U.S. adults having trouble falling asleep, the Awair 2nd Edition can put some of their sleep-related issues to rest.
First launched in fall 2015, Awair was developed by Ronald Ro, whose own personal story after his baby was found suffering from eczema, served as the catalyst for the creation of Awair. Awair products have been adopted by consumers and businesses for use in homes, schools, offices and hospitals, hotels, office spaces, research firms and real estate companies in over 2,000 cities across the world. The company recently released Omni, an enterprise solution for tracking air quality in buildings and facilities of all types. The launch of Awair 2nd Edition is further evidence of Awair’s commitment to helping consumers stay safe and healthy no matter where they are in the world.
