Let’s See if This Air Quality Sensor Is a Breath of Fresh Air

Welcome back to Show and Tell, where Peter Salib unboxes sweet tech for every area of your life. In this segment, we’re focusing on air quality. You might have seen our previous unboxing of the Molekule Air Pro Purifier. It’s essential to have clean air in your home – where you spend much of your time – but wouldn’t you like to know what exactly you’re breathing? Enter this device: the uHoo Indoor Air Quality Sensor. Let’s check out its features and see if this device is a breath of fresh air. 

Simple design and low maintenance

At first glance, you’ll notice that the uHoo is petite – a coffee-mug size. It has a modern design, with no buttons and no screens. Plug it in, download the app and control it from your phone. You can also connect it to your Google Home or Alexa.

Nine factors of air quality

The uHoo is an air quality sensor, so it tests your indoor air and lets you know if you have a problem. Here are the nine factors it tracks.

1. Temperature

Many people who don’t sleep well at night don’t have their room cool enough. 

2. Humidity

Mold loves moist environments. If you can monitor humidity, you can avoid mold as much as possible.

3. Dust

The uHoo can detect the smallest classification of particulate matter (PM), which is 2.5 microns; this is the size of a speck of dust.

4. Carbon dioxide

A normal amount of carbon dioxide can help you have a clearer head and better focus.

5. Carbon monoxide

People have carbon monoxide alarms in their homes for a reason! It can be very dangerous.

6. Nitrogen dioxide

This harmful gas can affect your lung health and breathing.

7. VOCs

Volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) come from many cleaning products. 

8. Ozone

You may not know that O3 (ozone) can be harmful to your respiratory system.

9. Air pressure

Change in pressure can cause headaches and other symptoms. 

Virus index

Finally, the uHoo has a virus index so you can monitor the likelihood of a virus surviving your indoor air. A score of 1-3 means virus survival and spread are unlikely; a score of 9-10 means the opposite. What do you think? Do you need more insight into your home air quality?
