This short video details the build process for a prototype home air sensor, designed to detect allergen levels in the air. The prototype is based on the Arduino platform, specifically the Arduino UNO R3. The device also features a humidity sensor, a LCD to display current air quality, and 3 buttons to record how the air quality is currently effecting your health.

The purpose of the journaling feature is to create a log of your personal respiratory health and compare it over time to air quality in your home. The device continuously uploads air quality data to a web server which also overlays journal data in a web interface.

This project was completed as a design project in the University of Washington's Human Centered Design and Engineering program by Jared Comis, Griffin Wesler, Jite Agbro, and Annuska Perkins.
