bluSensor AIQ is claimed to be the world’s first intelligent air quality measuring device with a smart plug concept. This small, flexible sensor can be operated with a power bank battery, through a USB socket in a smart home, a notebook at work or even in a car or truck. It measures and stores more than 5,000 different air quality values, everywhere and at any time. The specifically developed LED pulsates in the appropriate colour dependent on the air quality. A glance at the device is sufficient to view the current condition of your air.
This compact measuring device can be employed on the go via BLE and a fitting app for iOS and Android, as well as in a set location through wifi and with no need for a gateway. The device supports the most common smart home solutions like Apple’s HomeKit and Conrad Connect. Furthermore, the device has a comprehensive open-source API targeted at IoT developers to combine the sensor into any IoT cloud.
“There is currently no comparable device on the market that can be used both portably and in a smart home, and that is open to any IoT cloud available,” says Dipl.-Ing. Dorly Holzer-Harringer, managing director of Almendo Technologies GmbH.
The device has been especially developed for the consumer electronics market. By employing the latest sensor technology from Sensirion (humidity sensor SHTC3, multi-pixel gas sensor SGP30), it was able to produce a mobile measuring device with precise measurements and low power consumption in a surprisingly small package.
“bluSensor’s air quality device is the perfect application for our environmental sensors, offering a low power mode as well as reliable and accurate air quality measurements,” says Hartmut Welte, area sales manager at Sensirion.
