Airthings, specialists in indoor air quality and producers of digital radon detectors, announces the launch of their newest smart air quality monitor, Wave Mini, slated to make its official debut at CES 2019. The latest addition to Airthings’ growing ecosystem of devices, Wave Mini is an expertly-crafted air quality companion that comes with an entry-level price tag, a perfect starting point for any homeowner looking to gain insight into the quality of their indoor air or as an addition to their smart home system. For the first time ever, CES 2019 attendees will be able to experience the Wave Mini in person from January 8-11, 2019 at Airthings Booth #40549 in the Smart Home area of the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. Wave Mini is a small product with the ability to make a big impact. As an extension of Airthings’ existing product line of smart radon detectors and air quality monitors, including the award winning Wave Plus and the brand’s flagship Wave, the Wave Mini provides insights into three critical air components: total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs), temperature, and humidity, allowing you to visualize any changes in air quality or comfort levels in every room of your home – all while coming in at a cost-friendly price. VOCs are common toxins and potentially-harmful chemicals that are omnipresent in indoor environments, typically caused by human-made pollutants like aerosol sprays, paints, fumes, cleaning products and even humans themselves. With the average person spending 90% of their time indoors, gaining insight into air quality contaminants and being able to take action with simple steps like opening a window or turning on a fan can dramatically impact and improve the air we breathe and therefore our comfort, mood and most importantly, our health. “We believe that if you breathe better, you live better. Many believe the air in their home is clean, however as asthma and allergy numbers rise, our mission to deliver affordable, user-friendly products that improve health and comfort through air quality awareness, becomes even more important and the Wave Mini will help us achieve that goal,” said Øyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings. “We wanted to introduce the world to a cost-effective, easy-to-use device that meets the superior quality standards we set for all of our products, and we’re excited to see the Wave Mini begin impacting people’s lives for the better. For anyone looking to gain insight into the air inside their home, Wave Mini is the perfect place to start.” Viewing current and historical measurements is easy with the free Airthings mobile app and online dashboard where you gain a full understanding of the air quality levels in every room, giving you the power to take the most effective action. The Airthings Wave family of products connect using Bluetooth or Airthings Smartlink to the Airthings Hub, and integrate with Amazon Alexa, IFTTT and most recently, Google Assistant, allowing for a fully customizable smart home experience. In addition, localized outdoor air quality data is now available for all Wave family users. Airthings knows the value of also knowing your outdoor air quality levels to make informed decisions on ventilation therefore they have partnered with BreezoMeter, the leaders in outdoor air pollution data. "There's a really strong connection between the air we breathe outside and that which we breathe inside: indoor air pollution can be up to five times worse than pollution outdoors. By providing users with location-based ambient air quality information in real-time, Airthings can ensure its products provide customers with the fullest picture possible, while enabling their users to make the most informed decisions for their health,” said Ran Korber, BreezoMeter CEO and co-founder. The launch of the Wave Mini comes on the heels of significant recent success for Airthings’ burgeoning product range. Recently, the brand’s newly-released Wave Plus received the prestigious accolade of being named an Honoree for CES’ 2019 Innovation Awards, representing the most impactful and groundbreaking technology products released in 2018. In addition, in 2018 Airthings launched Radonmap.com, which is the first and most comprehensive real-time view into global radon levels. By launching the Wave Mini at CES 2019, Airthings continues to establish its footprint as a trusted worldwide leader in the rapidly-growing smart home indoor air quality sector.
