Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is a key component of the healthy TecHome, and a new device aims to monitor and improve IAQ through smart connections.
Awair is a new smart monitor that measures the home for five key data points that affect IAQ—humidity, temperature and CO2 levels.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), understanding pollutant levels in the home is crucial to limiting the negative effects of diseases like asthma.
Using a smart monitor to improve IAQ can be a great marketing tool to clients suffering from asthma, because according to the CPSC, the number of people with asthma has increased by 59 percent since 1970 to a total of 9.6 million people.
Including this connected monitoring device in multifamily communities can help you gain appeal among families where dust and pollutants can seriously impact the health of the youngest family members.

The air quality of any given room is given a 0-100 Awair Score, which displays alongside car graphs and color-coded dots on the front of the monitor as well as in the device’s app.
Awair can integrate with other connected devices that impact IAQ like humidifiers.
If builders are looking to market a standalone IAQ system that doesn’t rely on the home’s HVAC system, other options currently exist on the market. CubeSensors and Alima are small standalone devices that detect pollutant factors impacting air quality.
Builders that offer a full product-line of healthy HVAC devices can market a healthier home that has an impact on the health of each of your clients.
