I recently read a news article about five-star breathing experience. Well, the gist is that good air quality has become a luxury offering,and leading hotel chains like ITC Taj and Hyatt are offering them as elite services to their guests. Really? Have we come to that now? While these endeavors provide the needed respite for dignitaries and elite guests, what about the common public? Worst still, what happens when they come face to face with the real external conditions? Is good air quality reserved only for the elite and has become a luxury service we must pay for? Well, we can delve on this further or concentrate on the fact that at least now we have started realizing the importance of air quality and have actively started looking out for options. But then again, there is this question we must ponder: Is good air quality a necessity or just a luxury? I present to you some facts to get you started on this. According to the findings by the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR), around 1.27 million deaths in 2017 (it is around 8 million worldwide every year) were due to air pollution and the scene is worsening every passing year. There is also a drastic increase in people suffering from TB, asthma, lung cancer, strokes,andischemic heart disease. While the figures look confounding, it definitely puts us straight on one point: Clean air is the need of the hour,and if we care about our health and that of our family’s, we must take stringent measures to monitor the air we breathe. In short, you need an air quality monitoring device. Here is our take on what you must keep in mind before shortlisting an air quality monitoring device for your personal use.

Know the purpose

When you buy a product, you must know what you need it for right? Well unless you are monitoring the compliance or doing some research, you would require this device to check if a certain place is fit for you and your family. Check the sensitiveness of the gadget and its size. You wouldn’t want to carry a huge device around!

Duration of Usage

Is the device for a specific area or do you intend to use it for long-term screening? A big, heavy device will not help you if you intend to take it around. Taking into account the steady increase in air pollution, we assume it would surely be the latter care. Go for a small, and portable yet sensitive and robust device which would help you analyze the pollution levels with precision.

Ease of Use and Features

Your device must be able to quantify the air quality level in a short duration of time. This is important when you are traveling,and there is a need to calibrate pretty quickly. You must be able to use the device without having to look at the user manual every now and then. The best device would be that which allows you to connect to the internet or a mobile app. I particularly feel there is no use of monitoring something which can’t be changed!Imagine how good it would be if your real-time data can help someone take measures in improving the existing condition?


Well, the main intent is to ensure air quality doesn’t become a luxury! Invest in a device that is within your budget and worth the money you spend. But all this is what Ambee is about!
