Arduino Air Quality Monitor

Ensuring that your home or office has sufficient air quality is imperative for maintaining good health. Many people would have no idea about the quality of the air in areas they spend large amounts of time, and would be under the impression that building a project to find out would be prohibitively expensive. However, this project from AriV4  demonstrates how you can create an internet connected air monitoring system for well under $50!

Air Quality

With some tinkering this project could open up many potential uses. For example, once poor quality air has been detected you could configure your fan to turn on, or a window to open. Although it sounds simple, it could make a real difference to your health and even potentially save your life in the event of a carbon monoxide build up! To get started with this project check out the following link.

Carbon Monoxide

Love the idea of an air quality monitor but have no idea where to get started with Arduino? Check out our Experimenter’s Kit which provides a perfect platform to learn the basics.

Experimenters Kit

The kit is comprised of a wide range of parts including a servo, sensors, lights, buttons, a sound module and more. Importantly, a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to ensure that the kit contains everything you need to get started with Arduino. All these great parts would be useless without some form of instructions which is why we have developed a comprehensive project and instruction booklet to get you started. Check out the product page to find out more.
