Awair Brings Air Quality Monitoring To Your Home


It looks like a modern digital radio with retro inspirations, but the Awair won’t be streaming Spotify, Dezeer, or Pandora any time soon. Instead, it’s a dedicated air quality monitor that takes precise readings of the quality of air you’re breathing, keeping you informed of environmental conditions that may be affecting your health.

Granted, it’s not exactly the kind of device most people probably need (or want, for that matter). For those dealing with allergy, sleep, and productivity problems, though, it might very well be the solution they’ve been needing all along. After all, air quality can have serious effect on all of those areas, making this quite the handy tool in such situations.


The Awair uses an array of sensors that measure temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, toxic chemicals, and fine dust to give you a clear picture of the quality of the air that you are currently breathing. It uses a proprietary technology called TrueSense to carry out a detailed analysis of sensor readings, which, the company claims, pave the way to high levels of accuracy and control.


A LED display on the front face can offer a real-time snapshot of the total air quality grade (0 to 100), with options for other modes, including time, so you can use it as a desk clock. For more detailed information, it comes with an accompanying app that lists the readings for each category, along with actionable advice and personalized recommendations based on your data.

Available now, the Awair is priced at $199.

    Many of the people in my family suffer from allergies, so I’ve always had to pay extra attention to air quality, proper air flow and humidity. What I love so much about this monitor is that it’s lightweight, small and blends in nicely with the other pieces throughout our home. We use it in our living room and have it display the time. It’s so easy to forget that it’s no more than a clock because it looks elegant within the bookshelf display. I really enjoy all of the data this little device tracks: temperature, toxic chemicals (like carbon monoxide) and even fine dust. There is an app that keeps all of your household info and even offers tips to fix any concerns found.

      I have severe asthma in the springtime and there are some days I can’t even leave the house. I live in a rural area so I don’t have to worry about urban air quality, but we have other concerns. In my area it is common for people to burn weeds out of the canals as well as burning their trash weekly. Somedays it doesn’t bother me and other days I have trouble breathing and don’t leave the house. These are among the reasons I have an air-purifier in my house. It does help and it helps a lot for people such as myself.

      The carbon monoxide tracking is vital for anybody, regardless of if you have asthma or not. The air grade quality tracker is awesome. My air purifier doesn’t have that. With the tracker I can tell much more accurately so if the air quality is close to 100 but I am still having trouble breathing, then I know I need to get my butt to the Doctor.
