Cyber Gems

Priestnall School – Years 7-9

Priestnall School: Cyber GemsWhen we think of air pollution, we tend to think of the air outside – the cars, factories, planes, etc. But the air quality in your home or workplace can be worse than it is by a busy road. According to America’s Environmental Protection Agency, the levels of indoor air pollutants are often 2-5 times higher than outdoor levels and can be 100 times higher.

We spend more than 90% of our life indoors, so this is a real problem. Dust and other indoor pollutants, such as building materials, cleaning chemicals, beauty products, cigarette smoke and mould, can lead to health complications, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, lung cancer and heart disease.

To monitor indoor air pollution and reduce the health risk, we developed Air Alarm. Air Alarm is a unique indoor air quality monitoring station with:

  • two air quality sensors for different levels of analysis
  • high-precision measurements of indoor air quality
  • live streaming of data to Adafruit IO for pm2.5 and pm10
  • Alexa integration
  • unique detailed dashboards
  • multi-level pm interpretation using CVS files and graphics
  • easy to operate and monitor data
  • open source code in Python.
