Complete Indoor Air Quality Monitor  

Congratulations on taking this important step toward living a healthier life.

By keeping track of your indoor air quality and radon levels, you can make healthier decisions in the spaces where you spend most of your time. Increased productivity and energy levels, better quality sleep, and resistance to illness are just a few of the benefits. Lessening your exposure to radon will reduce your risk of lung cancer. 

The Airthings View Plus provides you with detailed information about Particulate Matter, Radon, Airborne chemicals, CO2, Temperature, Humidity and Air Pressure levels on the display, your phone, Airthings Dashboard or simply wave in front of the device for a visual indication of your overall indoor air quality.

Step 3 - Placement

Your View Plus can be placed wherever you want to measure your air quality, such as your night stand, on the wall in the baby room, on a shelf in the living room. It should be kept away from very dusty environments, and performs best if cleaned with a dry or damp cloth once in a while.

To mount your View Plus on a wall: Fix the mounting bracket to the wall. Make sure you use appropriate screws for your wall type. Do not place it close to vents or windows. Minimum 1 meter / 3 feet distance

Step 4 - Calibration

The radon, CO, and VOC sensors will need time, usually around a week, to calibrate after power-up. See more details in the View Plus Product Sheet.

 Product-feature-Icon_dark-grey_Calm tech  Configurable Display

The display can be configured to show the sensor values you care most about. Configuration is done in the Airthings dashboard or app. The display will update every 2.5 minutes, depending on sensor sample interval and the sensors shown on the display. It will sometimes flicker completely to refresh itself. This is normal and does not mean your device is operating incorrectly. 

Note: The Calm Tech e-paper display does not require power to show an image. If your View Plus suddenly loses power, for example if the USB connector is removed and there are no batteries in the compartment, then the display will simply keep displaying whatever image it had when loss of power occurred. The display will update as normal when power is restored to the product.


  Product-feature-Icon_dark-grey_Wave   Wave function

Wave in front of your device for a quick visual indication of your indoor air quality levels. The glow signal will light up according to the overall air quality (green means good, yellow means fair, and red means poor), and the display will change to show any levels that are fair or poor.

Use the app to configure your View Plus, setting sensor sample intervals, set up notifications based on sensor values, and more.
