Is There an Invisible Killer
In Your Home?
Most homes today are equipped with detection products to alert us of immediate dangers in the air like smoke and carbon monoxide (CO). But these systems have barely changed in the past 50 years, and recent data makes it clear they aren’t enough to ensure our safety.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified over two dozen other major indoor air pollutants that pose a significant risk to human health. Exposure to these contaminants can lead to respiratory illnesses, asthma attacks, cancer, premature death, and other serious health consequences.
Even low-level and prolonged exposure to these pollutants presents a grave risk to general health and well-being. This is particularly alarming considering the average American spends approximately 90% of their time indoors.
Complete Coverage, One Device
Any kind of indoor cooking creates ultrafine particles that are released into the air and can penetrate deep into the lungs. Close to 4 million people die each year from illnesses attributable to household air pollution from unsafe cooking practices.
Household air pollution from poorly ventilated cooking can cause serious health problems including stroke, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and lung cancer.
Household cleaning products release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air in your home during use and while stored.
VOCs cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, and can damage the liver, kidney, and central nervous system.
Mold spores are present in virtually every room of every building.
Inhaling or touching molds can cause hay fever-type symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rashes. Mold can trigger an asthma attack, even if you’ve never had one before.
Dust mites are nearly everywhere; roughly four out of five homes in the United States have detectable levels of dust mite allergen in at least one bed.
Dust mite body parts and droppings are considered one of the major indoor triggers for people with allergies and asthma.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that you can’t see or smell. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. The U.S. government recommends testing for radon in your home annually.
Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.
Without adequate ventilation, the CO2 levels in your home increase throughout the day. CO2 can accumulate to much greater concentrations indoors than outdoors.
Exposure to elevated levels of CO2 can have adverse health outcomes, including inflammation, reduced cognitive performance, and kidney and bone problems.
CO is an odorless, colorless gas formed by the incomplete combustion of fuels. Exposure is harmful at any concentration, even at levels below your home CO detector threshold.
Exposure to CO at lower concentrations can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, confusion, chest pain, and impaired vision and coordination. At higher concentrations, CO exposure can be fatal.
Formaldehyde levels can be significant in homes with new pressed wood products (e.g., IKEA furniture made with MDF).
Formaldehyde can cause watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty breathing.
Wildfires are an increasingly large source of airborne particulate matter in the U.S., leading to unhealthy air quality at home.
Plug It In and Go
IAQ is easy to set up and easy to use. All you have to do is plug it in and it instantly starts monitoring your air. We believe everyone should be capable of using an IAQ device, no matter their age or technical ability, because every home needs one.
As Easy as Breathing
IAQ uses a variety of sensors that log air quality data when plugged into a power outlet. An included cellular connection is used to send the data to the cloud, which means no internet connection or WiFi required. No complicated WiFi setup. No inconsistent Bluetooth signal. No confusing chirps or special batteries required.
Access from Anywhere
Once plugged in, simply visit the unique website URL labeled on your device to view your home’s data in a simple dashboard. You can also view your data by entering the device code into the IAQ mobile app. Share your code with trusted friends and family to give everyone a role in maintaining a safe and healthy indoor environment.
Real Time Alerts
IAQ empowers you to take control of your indoor air quality by prompting you with alerts and EPA-recommended actions, or automatically triggering actions for you by integrating with other smart home devices. High humidity? IAQ can prompt you to turn on your dehumidifier. High levels of CO2 in your living room? Open a window or turn on HVAC to circulate air.
Smarter, Healthier Home
Easily view indoor air quality information in a dashboard, receive alerts, trigger home automations, and much more through the IAQ website or app. You can even integrate IAQ with existing apps like Apple HomeKit, Alexa, Smart Things, and more.
