uHoo is the most advanced quality sensor that provides you with allergen and toxin alerts for air quality indoors. Unlike similar projects, uHoo goes deeper, detecting Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ozone, Air Pressure, Volatile Organic Compounds, which can be found in common household items such as paint and cleaning products.
“While the media covers health issues related to outdoor air pollution, the less known silent killer among us is indoor air quality, which can be up to five times worse than outdoor air” – Dustin Jefferson Onghanseng, CEO and co-founder of uHoo.
Indoor pollution is a growing concern. Studies show that the average person spends 90% of the time indoors. In the past there hasn’t been aconvenient or affordable device that could tell us if the air around us, in our homes, offices and schools, is potentially hazardous to our health. uHoo makes this easy. The device is only 3.3 inches in diameter, 6.2 inches high, and weighs less than a pound. Simply plug uHoo in to a power outlet and connect it to the WiFi network – uHoo does the rest. All information uHoo gathers can then be monitored using a dedicated free and easy to use smartphone app.
uHoo comes in two versions: Classic and Premium, the main difference being the number of dedicated sensors that the device will detect. Both versions are being offered as perks as part of uHoo’sIndiegogo campaign. After being live for only 3 days (as of May 13th) the project has reached:
