AirLink Professional Quality Monitor from Davis Instruments is an air monitor suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and provides real-time Air Quality Index (AQI) readings of the environment that are delivered directly to your phone or computer. For those with respiratory and health issues it can be imperative to know the quality of the air you are breathing and whether the air is polluted and how heavily. Airlink accurately measures particles in the air for PM1, PM2.5, and PM10. PM1 is an ultra-fine dust and is the most damaging type of small particles as these can penetrate the lungs, enter the bloodstream and are thus spread to the organs.
PM2.5 are larger particles that come from factors like burning fuel and chemical reactions in the atmosphere. They hang in the air longer and can reduce visibility, causing a hazy effect at higher levels. PM10 is a common air pollutant caused by smoke, dust, soot, salts, acids, and metals. It can also be formed from gases emitted from vehicles.
Once Airlink has assessed the air it will give you the results in an easy-to-read graph and colour coded Air Quality Index (AQI) reading based on PM2.5. The sensor can detect particles as small as 0.3 micrometers and has an accuracy of +/-10 micrograms per cubic meter in concentrations. It will take a reading every minute to ensure real-time results and you can select from a growing list of Global Air Quality Indices including US, Canada, Mexico, China, EU, UK, Australia, India, and South Korea.
Airlink is straightforward to set up with fast installation directed from the free WeatherLink app. It connects over your Wi-Fi network to send data to the WeatherLink Cloud. It can be paired with a Davis weather station or used as a stand-alone sensor. The unit itself is compact, quiet and unobtrusive with the option of mounting it on the wall or leave it free standing on a work top or desk. The Airlink Professional Air Quality Monitor is a reliable monitor that will diligently assess the air you breathe and alerts you immediately to any issues you need to be aware of. RRP $195
