Foobot Review

There's so much information around at the moment on how to live healthier; changing your die, improving your exercise regime, undertaking meditation etc. But what about monitoring your indoor air quality? This is where Foobot comes in handy; it can detect the invisible pollutants in our homes and make them visible to us.

Living within a few miles from the city centre, I was intrigued to see just how much the air we were breathing in on a daily basis was polluted. The set up the Foobot was easy enough; it connects straight to your WiFi and the app is available on Apple and Android.
The downloadable app gives information on things of which otherwise we would not know was there. A blue light indicates a good air quality, whereas an orange light indicates a not so good one.
Via the app, you are able to monitor the air temperature, humidity, particulate matter, carbon dioxide, and chemical pollutants. The app will also provide handy tips on how to improve certain elements within your home. 
Everything is set out in minutes, hours and days so that you are able to monitor when the readings are higher, such as when everyone in the household wakes up for the day.
I was surprised with the findings that we had from the Footbot; considering how close we were to a very busy town, our readings weren't too bad. Our indoor air quality seemed to drop during a recent heatwave - I think this is partially down to me not opening any windows as we were constantly out of the house, something of which I have changed.
If you are interested in finding out more about your own air quality, Foobot can be purchased online for £170.

*Disclaimer* I was sent the Foobot in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
