At Airthings for Business, integration is key. This month, we have released a new third party integration with Slack🎊

Slack is a business communication platform which allows you to work in channels, and uses direct messaging. Slack offers a new choice: a better way to work together by replacing email inside companies of all sizes.

You can now integrate your Airthings account with Slack and receive alerts when your sensor values go over a set threshold.
