The sensor in Air Mini+ is designed to detect particles, giving you a window into the air quality of the room it’s operating in, to help maintain clean air. By using a light-sensitive detector, the sensor gauges the concentration of particles in the air in front of it.
Inhaling particles, also known as particulate matter, can be harmful to many people. But there’s more to air pollution than just particles. While the Air Mini+ particle sensor doesn’t measure other types of pollution like ozone, VOCs, and some allergens, you can rest assured that the unique PECO technology at the core of your device is working to destroy them.
