First Fully Integrated Blueair IoT Air Purification System Now in India
India is Blueair’s launchpad for the world’s first intelligent, fully connected, fully working indoor air monitoring, control and purification system. The company says the hardcore air cleaning system now rolling out across India is potentially capable of detecting and combatting airborne germ, chemical, smoke and other particle attacks.
The system connecting Blueair’s Sense, Aware air quality monitor and Blueair Friend app, allows consumers to fully control the air they breathe 24/7 for probably the first time in human history. Blueair’s ‘Home Air Defence System' means Indian homeowners and businesses alike can benefit from indoor air free of allergens, chemicals and even outdoor pollution that has seeped inside, without ever having to worry about their air quality.
“Blueair’s visionary new air purifying technology harnesses Internet of Things technology to connect our designer-contemporary Sense air purifier with the sleek-looking Aware air monitor and Blueair Friend app to intelligently monitor, control and clean homes and workplaces of airborne hazards,” said Blueair founder and CEO Bengt Rittri. He added: “Designed to be the most ingenuous smart indoor air purifier on the planet, Sense+ reimagines Blueair’s renowned indoor air purifying expertise with a host of new features and benefits packaged in an exceptional out-of-this-world contemporary design.”
Rittri said Blueair’s HEPA enhanced Home Air Defence System effectively helps consumers fend off airborne threats to create safer indoor havens in a world where air pollution has become the single biggest danger facing humankind, causing millions of deaths in India and worldwide. Air pollution is also a major factor behind mounting respiratory diseases, such as asthma and COPD.
The Sense is engineered to purify the air using patented HepaSilent filtration technology in rooms up to 200 square feet every 12 minutes of almost all known airborne pollutants. The sleek air purifier uses wireless technology to access the information being harvested by the remote Blueair Aware air quality monitor on the Blueair Friend app, which can either automatically adjust the Sense airflow speed or permit manual control.
The Blueair Friend app, available for both Apple IoS and Android smart phones and tablets, will eventually gather data on an hourly basis from thousands of gauging stations across India and over one hundred other countries to deliver trustworthy information on local outdoor air quality. The app also receives data from the Aware monitor that provides a detailed view of indoor pollution such as fine dust and VOC’s as well as temperature and humidity.
Apart from its IoT capabilities, the second-generation Sense has been given more air cleaning power to remove all the nasty stuff from rooms at home or at work, including dust, allergens, chemicals, viruses and odors. The improved user interface, controlled by gentle hand swipes above the Sense+ hardened-glass surface top, embraces a WiFi strength-indicator, a WiFi button and a filter change indicator.
Enhanced features include improved performance on the highest speed setting, an ultra-low sound level on the lowest setting and a WiFi enabled remote control for use with the Blueair Mobile App. The remote control will turn the Sense on or off, adjust fan speed, set a timer, dim or sharpen LED intensity, put the appliance into ‘sleep mode’, enable a child lock and indicate when a filter needs changing.
