The bluSensor AIQ is an intelligent air quality measuring device with a smart plug concept that has the ability to measure and store over 5000 different air quality values anywhere at any time. The device can be powered with any kind of USB outlet such as power banks, USB sockets at home, a notebook or a PC, and even the USB sockets in cars or truck. The special type of LEDs in the device will be pulsated in an appropriate color depending on the quality of the air.
The compact measuring device can be used on the go via Bluetooth Low Energy and a suitable app for iOS and Android, as well as in a fixed location via wifi and without the need for a gateway. The device is supported by most of the common smart home solutions such as Apple’s HomeKit and Conrad Connect and it also has an extensive open source interface (API) that can help the IoT developers to integrate the sensor to any IoT cloud.
The bluSensor AIQ has been developed as a consumer electronics product with the help of latest sensor technologies from Sensirion (humidity sensor SHTC3, multi-pixel gas sensor SGP30), it can provide precise measurements at low power consumption within a very small package. By using Sensirion’s CMOSens Technology. The humidity sensor SHTC3 provides a complete sensor system in a single chip and it is designed in a way to overcome the conventional limits on size, power consumption and Price-performance ratio in order to fulfil the requirements of the consumer electronics and the products like bluSensor AIQ. The SGP30 gas sensor is based on Sensirion’s multi pixel platform and it integrates 4 gas sensing elements into a compact 2.45 x 2.45 x0.9 mm3 DFN package that can deliver a fully calibrated air quality output. The combination of long term stability with multi-pixel technology opens up a new possibility of environmental monitoring for smart homes, appliances and IoT applications.
