Breathing clean air reduces the risk of stroke, heart and lung diseases and other respiratory illnesses such as asthma. The increased use of fossil fuels, large scale industrial processes, big construction projects, house hold activities and wild fires are major contributing factors to deteriorate the air quality. The concentration of NO2 levels, especially in built up areas, is the major health risk that need to be known in order to reduce exposure.

SciFlair has developed an air quality monitor which is able to measure nitrogen oxides (NOx), ozone (O3), particulate matter (PM 0.5, 1, 2.5, 4, 10), temperature and humidity levels. The unit can be installed indoors as well as outdoors. It has a built in battery which can be recharged through mains adapter or connecting a solar panel. There is an option to install it in vehicles with GPS integration to take mobile measurements along travel routes.

SciFlair Air Quality Monitor uses Axino IOT for communication and data collection. It can be connected using GSM, LoRa, SigFox, WiFi, Ethernet and Mesh technologies for data transmission.
