You are what you breathe, therefore air quality is an important indicator to be aware of sun our homes and workplaces. We look at the Airthings Wave Mini Air Quality Monitor in this review.
Airthings Wave Mini Air Quality Monitor reviewed
This product was popular as there is so much going on in our homes and offices, especially when they are one and the same. Set up was quite straight forward, and we got several team members to boot it up and play around with it. The visual dashboard is a smart design idea and makes it more readily visually accesible and easy to comprehend.
The price is reasonable, though we don’t know yet how it fares in terms of durability as we have only been running it for a short period. The customisable dashboard is a nice feature, and it will / would be interesting if you could add future airborne elements to monitor too. We liked the product and the company, Airthings are worth watching to see what they come up with next.

Airthings, makers of the best-selling indoor air quality and radon solutions for homeowners, businesses and professionals, has launched View Plus smart air monitor, featuring the brand’s most advanced air quality technology to date.
Battery-operated and Wi-Fi-enabled, View Plus includes sensors for particulate matter (PM), radon, carbon dioxide (CO2) and much more, along with a customisable display for easy visualisation. View Plus brings a new level of peace of mind, allowing users to rest assured that their homes are healthy.
According to the World Health Organization, 9 out of 10 people breathe unsafe air on a regular basis. The effects of allergens, pollution, wildfire smoke, radon and airborne viruses impact the health of people all over the world, yet these invisible enemies often lurk freely in our everyday environments without the ability to detect them. View Plus is here to change that and offer a level of control over the air that has never been possible before. By monitoring for PM, radon, CO2, humidity, airborne chemicals (VOC), temperature, air pressure, and even outdoor air quality, View Plus displays a comprehensive spectrum of insights and provides a glance into air quality in a way that is easy for anyone to understand.
Invisible to the naked eye
PM detection is a new addition to Airthings’ range of product capabilities and will provide a level of insight into air quality at home. The term “particulate matter” describes microscopic particles in the air, which can include anything from dust and pollen to pollutants emitted from car exhaust, industrial activity, wood-burning stoves, smoke from wildfires, cooking, cigarette smoke, and pets, and more. While invisible to the naked eye, the impact of PM on our health can be colossal – it can irritate lungs, agitate pre-existing conditions such as asthma, and can even contribute to serious illnesses, such as heart attacks and coronary artery disease.
The only way to combat PM in the air is to gain awareness of its presence and take informed action; which is where View Plus can help. The product features a built-in particle sensor that can detect PM2.5 and PM1, and provide users with continuous access to data, as well as notifications to alert about changes in the air.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve seen the levels of awareness about air quality increase dramatically,” said Oyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings. “We decided to develop View Plus to help people everywhere understand that they have more control over their air quality than they might think. Our mission at Airthings has always been to educate people and foster constructive conversation about how air quality can impact their health and daily lives. With View Plus, we can empower people to learn about the air quality in their homes in a way that is constructive and easy to understand.”
Customisable to everyone’s needs
With a sleek and minimalistic design interface that will fit seamlessly in any home, View Plus adapts to the surroundings, showing the most relevant data based on the location. It also allows for customisation options for users who want to prioritise the air quality data that matters most to them – whether it be PM, radon, CO2, humidity, or something else. Gaining an understanding of the air with View Plus is as easy as waving a hand in front of the device for a colour-coded air quality check. Users can log into the Airthings Dashboard for in-depth insights into the air or open the Airthings app for a quick and easy view of the air quality levels.
View Plus is wireless and WiFi-enabled, offering access to data anytime, and anywhere, with a battery life of more than two years. It can also be easily integrated into a smart home system using IFTTT, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. In addition, View Plus has a built-in Hub functionality, so users can expand their system and bring other Airthings devices online. View Plus can be placed in any home, making for a convenient way to transform indoor air quality from an invisible threat to a visible, understandable, and controllable aspect of life.
