Track local pollen counts and adjust your indoor air purifier remotely
You can track the local pollen count and adjust your air purifier to customize your home's air quality based on your sensitivities and the local conditions.
The new Honeywell BluetoothSmart True HEPA Allergen Remover is the first air purifier utilizing Bluetooth technology to track local pollen counts via a free mobile app and auto-adjust its cleaning levels accordingly.
This technology provides homeowners with unprecedented insights into how their indoor air quality may be affected by outdoor allergens such as mold and pollen from trees, grasses and weeds. By utilizing the Allergen Alerts and Auto-set mode, users can customize their units to auto adjust cleaning level according to allergen levels in a specific zip code. Never before has this level of air quality customization opportunity within the home existed.
"Indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air due to factors like pets, cleaning solutions and sprays, paints, cooking odors and smoke. Outdoor air that enters into the home also presents a host of other issues, particularly for allergy sufferers when pollen counts are high," said Dr. Ted Myatt, ScD, a microbiologist and air quality expert with Environmental Health & Engineering. "It's important for individuals and families to understand the causes of poor air quality issues in the home and find effective solutions. A True HEPA air purifier with an odor reducing carbon pre-filter will capture 99.97 percent of air particles, as small as 0.3 microns, from the air that passes through its filters, including dust, pet dander, smoke, and pollens.æ
