24.02.2016 WELLNESS 0.0 0

Nowadays, many people spend most of their time indoors without even realizing how indoor air quality may affect their health and productivity. According to United States Environmental Protection Agency, “indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times, and occasionally, more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. Indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors.”


People who are constantly breathing in indoor polluted air are more likely to suffer from such symptoms as irritation of eyes, nose, throat, headaches, fatigue and dizziness. What’s more, a constant exposure to polluted air is often the main cause of such illnesses as asthma, cancer and hormonal imbalance. Therefore, it is vitally important to take measures to understand and control pollutants indoors in order to prevent negative health effects and improve your productivity.


In today’s article, I’m going to introduce Foobot, the first complete air quality monitor that allows you to take control of your closest environment.


What is Foobot? What problem does it solve?

Foobot is the first intelligent device that continuously monitors indoor air quality and provides instant feedback making you act on your environment.


The device detects the source of pollution, informs you through notifications about behaviors that are harmful to your indoor air and provides actionable advice on how to create healthier environment in your home, allowing you to protect the health of all family members.


As founders of device say, “Foobot brings the right information at the right time to take care of existing problems and prevent the creation of new ones.” Using Footbot, you’ll be able to improve your health, get better night’s sleep, increase your physical energy, stay focused and productive.



How Foobot got started

The father of 4 kids, a serial entrepreneur and now the CEO and co-founder of Foobot Jacques Touillon states that “environmental issues have always been his playground”. In addition, his son suffered from asthma and Jacques was quite curious how to help his son fight this disease. This problem inspired him to create a device that will help millions of people worldwide improve their health by understanding and taking control of indoor air quality.



How does Foobot work?

Once  installed, the device works 24/7 continuously measuring air quality in your entire living space.


After installation, you have to pair Foobot with the app on your mobile device. The app allows you to receive notifications about the level of air pollution and get warnings when it’s about to reach its peak. Foobot also informs you about events and products that cause air pollution and sends practical recommendations on what measures to take to reduce pollution.


The app gives you access to real-time dashboard that allows to keep track of your indoor air quality anytime, identify pollution cycles and learn how your activity and habits affect indoor environment.


Foobot is able to detect even the smallest particles in the air that are the common cause of aggravation of allergies and asthma, and lead to irritations of nose, eyes and throat. The device also detects chemicals generated from household products, appliances, furniture, equipment, etc.


In addition, Foobot measures temperature, humidity and CO2. It sends notifications when it’s time to renew the air and provides personalized advice on when to adjust temperature and humidity to make living space even more comfortable.



Foobot’s special sauce

The device is equipped with high-tech sensors ensuring that it not only accurately measures indoor air quality, but also provides timely warnings, so that you can take all the necessary measures to avoid pollution peak.


Foobot’s artificial intelligence learns your habits and behaviors, providing more personalized advice over time.


Foobot allows multi-room monitoring, making it possible to monitor air quality in entire living space.


Foobot not only learns from your habits but also teaches you to become indoor air quality expert by providing relevant insights that improve your understanding of how your habits and choices affect the indoor air.
