Foobot air Quality monitor This Foobot air Quality monitor was designed with the intention of a father helping his child with asthma. This was achieved by making people aware of and take control of their air quality. The unit comes in standard packing with the usual option to download an app. The charger supplied is a standard USB charger with is great if travelling about. We take for granted Air quality, we expect air quality is monitor 24/7 automatically by some government department.

This is done via the Air Quality Index for Health. The Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Quality Index for Health (AQIH) is a number from one to 10 that tells you what the air quality currently isin your region and whether this might affect the health of you or your child. A reading of 10 means the air quality is very poor and a reading of one to three inclusive means that the air quality is good. The AQIH is calculated every hour. You can see the current readings on the AQIH map.

Particulate matter, aka PM (also known as particle pollution,) are very little particles within dust, fly ash, dust mites, aerosols, or fumes, that are not filtered by our bodies and can penetrate the alveoli, in the deepest part of the lungs. Over time it creates asthma, lung cancer, cardiovascular disease etc. WHO recommends not to be exposed to an average concentration higher than 50 μg/m3 over 24h for PM10 and smaller. Foobot’s optical sensor detects particles in the air from 0.003 to 2.5μg

Volatile organic compounds are toxic chemicals that can be dangerous even at low concentrations and have short & long-term adverse health effects. Formaldehyde has been proven as carcinogenic. They’re present in nature, produced by plants, animals, and moulds. A major source of man-made VOCs are paints and coatings, glues in furniture, sprays etc. Measured in part per billion, WHO advises a maximum VOC level of 300ppb, which is displayed in our app.

Humidity, or the amount of water vapor in the air, is an important health variable that is easy to overlook… yet very easy to remedy. With too much humidity, black mould may emerge with a toxic mist of bacteria and fungus in its wake. On the opposite, dry air can lead to dry skin, sinuses congestion, and itchy eyes. Further, in low humidity certain viruses like flu survive longer, increasing your risk of contracting an infection.
