Yet another air quality monitor. Measure PM2.5 and CO2. Have rechargeable battery that allow hours of work without power plug. Have Wi-Fi and mobile application to access data.
What is wrong with this device – no support for Ukraine. No external Air quality data for Ukraine, cannot choose Ukraine from country list during setup. It is also ambient light sensor missing (only manual screen brightness setup).
Awair. Air quality monitor. Measure Humidity, Temperature, CO2, VOC (Hydrogen gas, Hydrogen Sulfide, Ammonia, Ethanol, Toluene, Formaldehyde), Dust (PM2.5 PM10). That is somehow more than netatmo can do.
Device shows air quality metrics as a dot bars. Where one dot is good and five dot are bad. It is also general “Awair score” on the screen both by number (100 is best, zero is worst) and by color of the LED (green is good, red is bad).
Awair also can work as clock (but only in 12h mode).
In addition to local indication device is also send data to a cloud using Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz), that allow to see the data using iPhone or Android on a remote locations.
Urban Weather Station is unique product. In addition to usual weather parameters like temperature, humidity and pressure it also measures CO2 and noise level (indoor only). Outdoor air quality as well as weather forecast is showing from some internet weather sources and not based on measures done by the product. Actually everything that your iPhone, iPad or Android device show is downloaded from netatmo servers. You cannot access your weather station directly without internet connection. So setup of the station is actually simple and it is just create netatmo account and connect the station to Internet using Wi-Fi. Numbers, trends, forecast could be than obtain with app for iOS or Android from anywhere. Also web interface available, so PC and Mac are also could be clients for the weather station.
Netatmo stations have known bug with humidity measures. It show numbers 15-20% more than it actually should. But this could be fixes by firstname.lastname@example.org
