Breathe Better, Live Better
Do you know what you’re breathing? Air pollution has received significant national and local attention and has become one of the top concerns across the globe. The composition of PM2.5 is relatively complex, including direct emissions of fine particles of the combustion process (primary PM2.5 particles), and secondary particles generated by multiphase chemical reactions of atmospheric pollutants. Mass manufacturing, heavy industry, burning fossil fuels and the use of agricultural chemicals are contributing to rising levels of harmful PM2.5 particles in the air.
Recent WHO estimates put the annual death toll from air-pollution related conditions at around 7 million people. And the figure is forecasted to keep rising. Recommend average annual PM2.5 levels are around 10 μg/m3, but developing countries often exceed 30 – 40 μg/m3 and an increase of just 5 μg/m3 can increase risk of cardiovascular disease by 55%. According to the WHO, air pollution is the world’s single greatest environmental health risk.
Modular Sensor Designed for Easy Maintenance
The AI-1001W V3 adapts a slide-in PM2.5 modular sensor design to help users check and change the sensor on their own.
Air Quality Detection with Real-time Data
Accurate real-time automatic monitoring of PM2.5, temperature and humidity, with intuitive displays and real-time air-quality data delivered by the free EdiGreen mobile companion app.
Air Quality Monitoring
The AI-1001W V3 works with EdiGreen to provide an air quality monitoring solution which is comprised of emission identification and traceability, and device management support. This solution enables the decision makers to make effective and timely decisions to enforce regulations, and foster environment management operational excellence.
The key technology differentiations of this solution include:
- Leverage data assimilation to combine at best different sources including, weather data and geographical data, then get high-accuracy air quality forecasting.
- Anomaly Detection enables system to get the device anomaly status to arrange the resource to solve the problem.
Big Data & Cloud Architecture
The air quality data is collected, processed and analyzed in Edimax’s advanced cloud system. Historical data across different locations are checked to understand trends, identify pollution spots or observe improvements during a period of time, and sourcing up-to-date hyperlocal data from EdiGreen sensors deployed around your city.
Compared with other EPA approved equipment, the EdiGreen PM sensor achieved a steady and accurate ratio reading within the USA, Taiwan, Korea and UAE. Please find more details of the field evaluation report of Edimax (Edimax AirBox / Edimax EdiGreen Home ) from the Air Quality Sensor Performance Evaluation Center (AQ-SPEC) program, which is established by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SC-AQMD).
