The air-Q is much more than an air measuring device. The data on room air provides important information for your Smart Home. As a sensor centre, the air-Q can serve as a signal generator for automatic window opening, the control of air purifiers or even the switching on and off of heaters, depending on the room use, pollution, number of people (and much more). Since the air-Q provides a multitude of parameters, completely new possibilities for your Smart Home arise.
