The A3 is an advanced IOT air quality monitoring station in a rugged aluminium body with a built-in pump to ensure active airflow over the sensing elements. It has sensors for:
The A3 also comes in 4 variants, with the same sensors but offering different connectivity options: Ethernet, Wifi, GSM (with a data sim card) and LoraWAN. Here on Tindie I am offering the Ethernet and Wifi variants, please select when ordering.
As an automated detector, all you need to do is to connect it to your Internet Router either via a network cable or Wifi (depending on the unit type you've purchased). The device will immediately start measuring the air at your location, and provide the data automatically. You can see all readings on your computer, phone or tablet using one of the many available dashboards:
This dashboard shows Dave's unit, installed at EEVBlog HQ:
Dave has been a supporter of this project since 2014. The entire work goes way above a single air quality detector hardware, I've built a Global Environmental Monitoring network using hundreds of such devices interconnected and spread across the Globe. This network is called uRADMonitor and you can see a 3D rendering with hundreds of these devices and their real locations:
uRADMonitor means two things: IOT devices equipped with sensors for Air Quality monitoring of cities, offices and homes, and a global network of such devices spread in more than 40 countries that generate uniform and comparable Environmental data so we can understand the big picture on pollution.
About one hundred A3 devices have been installed in public transportation to map the air quality in 5 cities, impacting over 3 million people by offering them real-time environmental data:
This helps increase awareness, but gives an insight into the possible harmful factors around us, affecting our health or the environment. By purchasing a device you get yourself a nice automated dosimeter to monitor your location 24/7 but you also support the work and research invested in this community project, helping it move further.
You can use the uRADMonitor Dashboard to access the data via the uRADMonitor API, see it here. Alternatively, these devices have an internal web server you can connect to directly in your LAN to access all readings in JSON format.
Personally, I am committed to building something that matters, that has an impact on the lives of many.
uRADMonitor is just one of several projects planned. Air Quality has a direct impact on the health and the environment, and the first step in solving the pollution problem is to understand it. Here is where uRADMonitor steps in.
