Create A Smarter Home That Monitors Air Quality And Combats Allergies
With the arrival of spring, hay fever has also arrived. Allergic to airborne matter is something that is horrible. Smart homes can help you combat hay fever with purifiers, smart plugs, air quality monitors, Alexa, and IFTTT applets. The users would first have to purchase an air quality monitor and then select a local weather forecast service which offers up-to-date pollen count, and works with IFTTT.
Foobot measures volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon dioxide, particulate matter, temperature, and humidity. Awair shows the humidity, CO2, temperature, chemicals and dust. Just like the other two, Blueair also measures the same details and records this data once in every five minutes. AcuRite and Caseta are other options in the market.
IFTTT can also be used to make devices react to the weather forecast, or alert you to a high pollen count. For example, an applet can send you an email or other notification when Weather Underground reports a high pollen count for your area, reminding you to take your hay fever medication.
As of today, many smart air quality monitors do not measure specific pollen counts. The Velux Active will be available in the market soon. It controls your blinds, shutters, and windows automatically, depending on the weather conditions.
