Airthings has announced the launch of View Plus, a smart air quality sensor, which is the first company to include particle monitoring (PM). View Plus, which is available for pre-order now, offers a perspective on home air quality and work through a companion smart app and a device display.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have seen levels of air quality awareness rise dramatically,” said Oyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings. “We decided to develop View Plus to help people everywhere understand that they have more control over air quality than they think. With View Plus, we can empower people and companies to learn about air quality in their homes, schools, offices or even their favorite restaurants in a constructive and easy-to-understand way. “
According to Airthings, particle monitoring in the new View Plus allows the sensor to detect small particles such as ‘ordinary bacteria’ and ‘dust’, commonly referred to as PM1 and PM2.5. In addition to PM, View Plus also offers measurements for several other air quality values observed in the company’s Wave Plus and Wave mini sensors, such as CO2, VOC, humidity, temperature, air pressure and radon levels.

Like other Airthings sensors, the View Plus works completely wirelessly with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and a two-year battery life. The Wi-Fi features in View Plus also allow the sensor to act as a hub for other Airthings sensors in the house, putting them online for continuous monitoring.
The measurements captured by View Plus are available on the on-board customizable display and through a dashboard in the Airthings app, available for iOS and Android. The Airthings app can also send alerts when View Plus detects changes, and the monitor also integrates with Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT.
Airthings View Plus will be available in both home and business editions, with the consumer model now available for pre-order at airthings.com. To celebrate the launch, Airthings is currently dropping 10% of the $ 299 retail price for orders placed before the end of March, and View Plus will begin delivery in June.
