Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor could be a lot smarter

Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor could be a lot smarter

Amazon $69.99 Smart Air Quality Monitor is the company first foray into the increasingly popular category of indoor air quality monitors (IAQs). And, based on my experience with the product, it is a bandwagon-jumping move. While relatively inexpensive and helpful thanks to voice control, the Smart Monitor does not add anything particularly innovative or useful to the concept of a consumer air quality monitor.

An indoor air quality monitor purports to tell you all about nasties you can not see floating around in your home (the EPA says indoor air may be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air). You may have heard about volatile organic compounds and other airborne pollutants that are common in modern homes, many of which can aggravate or contribute to respiratory diseases such as asthma. Common activities in our homes, such as cleaning and cooking (especially with gas), add minuscule particulates to the air that can cause harm and also exacerbate existing health conditions. And of course, the outdoor air can creep in, which, if you live near a busy road or in an area affected by wildfire smoke, can make life miserable.
