Contrary to preconceived ideas, indoor air is between 5 and 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. This is due to the many products used in our daily lives that we do not always suspect of being a source of pollution: incense sticks, scented candles, gas cooking, home perfumes, cleaning products, building materials, etc.
The lack of ventilation in enclosed spaces is the main risk of indoor pollution: it is the renewal of air that reduces the concentration of pollutants emitted indoors. Human activities in an enclosed environment can be a source of humidity and CO2, and thus help the proliferation of molds.
How to detect if your home is sufficiently ventilated? CO2 is an excellent indicator - measuring its level enables you to become aware of the quality of the air you breathe. That's why we offer a new pollution monitor that indicates the level of CO2.
The Kaiterra Laser Egg already measured particular matter, the new Laser Egg CO2 now also measures carbon dioxide. It is your barometer for a healthier home: with this CO2 monitor, you know at any time if you need to ventilate your closed spaces to lower the CO2 level.
The Kaiterra Laser Egg CO2 uses an optical sensor that counts particles in the air. It shows you in real-time the temperature, humidity, fine dust, PM2.5, and CO2 levels for a healthier environment and better comfort in your living spaces. Lightweight, compact, and autonomous for 8 hours, it is easy to move from one room to another in your house.
Compatible with Apple HomeKit - you can connect with your CO2 monitor to receive notifications about the air quality in your environment.
Simply download the free Kaiterra app, then follow the instructions to pair your monitor with your phone. It will tell you what level of air quality your space has reached: Healthy, Moderate, Unhealthy, Very Unhealthy, Hazardous.
For more details, you can consult and export the data recorded by your CO2 monitor from the Kaiterra application (available in eight languages).
If you are missing an Apple HomeKit QR code, follow these steps: turn on the CO2 Laser Egg+, then press and hold the mode button (the one next to the power button) for two seconds. Then, you will see an image with the Apple HomeKit QR code on your monitor screen. If it doesn't show up, Kaiterra Support advises you to press the mode button until ‘Forget the network’ is shown on your monitor’s screen, and try again.
