The air cannot be seen, but the dangers that it can potentially carry are numerous. The smallest particles are invisible to the human eye. As soon as the concentration of dangerous substances exceeds the norm, it can lead to negative consequences for the health.
Davis Airlink Professional Air Quality Sensor is a small, compact air quality monitor that can notify you of all the potential dangers present in the air in your home.
The sensor can be without difficulties mounted on a wall or attached to a tabletop as well as other surfaces. It can be used outdoors as well. In that case, it is necessary to put on an additional plastic cover that is included in the package.
Just like many other air quality sensors available on the market, the AirLink supplies you with a broad range of air quality data. This includes air quality trends, weather data, as well as the NowCast data feed that is retrieved in real time. It can notify you by email or SMS as soon as there’s a change in air quality.
Davis Airlink Professional Air Quality Sensor is a relatively small device that comes in a plastic housing.
This is a purely standalone unit. No additional accessories are needed. Davis WeatherLink Live is also not required. AirLink works without an additional data logger or external weather station.
The Davis company has access to a broad network of weather stations. It includes many thousands of weather stations in different locations. These stations are actively used by such institutions as National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, among many others. In the end, you only get the best air quality data that is accurate, up-to-date and adheres to the strictest of standards.
The device is fully integrated with the Davis Cloud, which is a powerful optional feature. In order to connect to the Davis Cloud, it is merely enough to use the regular home Wi-Fi connection. Besides, it supports Google Home and Amazon Alexa, which is a nice addition to the overall set of features.
Accuracy is a really high priority for air quality sensors. In that respect, AirLink is very precise. Its measurements are characteristic by a high degree of accuracy. It is capable of measuring extremely small, minuscule particles reaching just 0.3 micrometers. The accuracy rate lies within the 10 microgram range.
Without properly measuring particulate matter, it’s absolutely impossible to get reliable results. They are generally classified in several different sizes. The device supports the following most common varieties of particulate matter:
- PM 1
- PM 2.5
- PM 10
Overall, the AirLink is an aesthetically unsophisticated and compact device that perfectly serves the purpose and does a great job monitoring the air quality of your home. The fact that it can be used in connection with your phone is definitely a plus. It is particularly useful in situations when you live under the conditions of degrading environmental factors (such as wildfires) or near environmentally unfriendly industrial zones, because pollutants become a significant risk factor.
