We recently interviewed UK-based Residential & Commercial Technology Integrator, UNITY® Technology, to learn more about their company and their unique perspective on ways to use and integrate with Awair.
Originally established in 2004 as an IT consultancy based in London's Kensington district, UNITY® was created to offer design, installation, and aftercare of integrated residential and commercial technology systems. Their work includes Home Automation, Smart Homes, AV, and extends to commercial offices, restaurants, shops, hotels, exhibition spaces, and beyond.
We are currently using Awair products for 24/7 monitoring of the air quality and pollutant levels in the home. We were looking for a go-to solution for a couple of years that met our requirements, that we could confidently use in our smart-home projects to integrate and display this data into our systems, and also implement air quality improvement features that could be triggered and automated by the data provided in different zones fo the home or building. It's just what we were looking for!
Awair Element’s powerful insights into the air quality around us. Its ease of use, clearly presented information to the end-user, and its affordability. Not to mention the Element looks gorgeous!
Well, If I’m honest, our own application; whereby Awair devices are used as a vital source of data by which other powerful automations are triggered and managed in the smart-home systems we design for our clients. I imagine in the future that we may dive deeper into what Awair can offer regarding air quality analytics in relation to BMS, cloud-based services, and other deployable solutions like the Awair Omni.
Absolutely all the time! Actually can’t imagine being at home without it now.
It has opened our eyes to the importance of knowing what’s going on with the air in the places we spend the most time in. It has also opened up a world of possibilities with regards to IAQ improvements that can be made thanks to having the data continually and easily presented to use by Awair.
We are always excited to meet inspirational thought-leaders who are also passionate about understanding what’s in their air, and we are especially fortunate when these people choose to become Awair Ambassadors.
This spring we’ve been exploring how our allergies are affected by the air we breathe. Allergies are a common scapegoat this time of year--they’re usually at the center of blame for our congestion and scratchy throats. But how much do we really know about allergies, in the first place?
