Airthings House Kit
To stay as healthy as can be while working, it is crucial for you to maintain only the highest level of indoor air quality. The Airthings House Kit will help you do just that! It monitors radon, a dangerous, radioactive chemical that comes out of the ground and is the top cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. This kit also monitors Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs), which are emitted from everyday items and can cause major health issues. You will also appreciate that the kit monitors temperature and humidity.
The Airthings House Kit is a godsend for those who place great importance on everyday wellness. It includes a Wave Monitor that measures radon, humidity, and temperature (wave in front for a visual indication of radon levels!), a Wave Mini that monitors TVOCs and more in another room, and a Hub that brings your devices online for on-demand access to your data. Using the Airthings app, you can compare data and find trends. The House Kit also perfectly integrates into your smart home and works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT. You can set alerts, receive air quality measurements, and more!
