We’re excited to announce an update to Omni’s Chemicals (TVOC) sensor index. To ensure that your space is as healthy as possible, we are constantly reviewing cutting-edge health standards to make sure you are given the most useful and actionable information.
The decision to update to Omni’s TVOC index came after utilizing tens of thousands of data points from a comprehensive German study. The intent of this update is to have strict thresholds for measuring healthy and unhealthy TVOC ranges.
Your raw data is not affected by this update in any way. This change only concerns the way your “Chemicals” levels will be visually represented on Omni’s LED display. This update will also affect how the Awair Score is calculated, with the intent of providing further actionable insights than ever before.
We are committed to making sure your experience with Awair is the most up-to-date and aligned with current health standards. We’ll continue to review and assess global research and learnings, and we will always inform you when updates are made that will improve your experience.
If you have any questions about this update, please feel free to reach out via email@example.com.
Awair iOS 14 widgets will specifically give you the ability to add your Awair Score, air factor values, and indexes to your Home Screen or Today View on your iOS device.
I realized the impact indoor air quality could have on health for the first time years ago while renovating our new home. We were not sleeping well and getting sick often. Then I read about the effects fine dust and air pollution can have on the human respiratory system, both near-term and over a lifetime.
If you haven’t heard the latest news, PlanetWatch’s Ask Me Anything Session on September 1 introduced Awair Element as a newly approved Type 4 sensor for indoor air quality monitoring. PlanetWatch is a company that incentivizes environmental monitoring so residents can deploy and manage sensors in a fast and cost-effective way.
