New Product – Elikliv Indoor CO2 Meter CO2 Monitor

Why Do We Need an Air Quality Monitor? Why do we need to monitor the carbon dioxide in our house ? Carbon dioxide (CO2) is not normally harmful to the human body when it is at a low level, but when it increases above a certain amount, it will start to affect the breathing of humans (and other organisms). The reason is that the concentration of carbonic acid in the blood increases, the acidity increases, and then acidosis occurs. Excess Carbon Dioxide can actually kill you. The Indoor CO2 Standard: 350~450ppm: Same as general outdoor environment 350~1000ppm: The air is fresh and breathing is smooth. 1000~2000ppm: You feel the air is muggy and start to feel drowsy. 2000~5000ppm: You feel you have a headache, drowsiness, sluggishness, inability to concentrate, rapid heartbeat, mild nausea. More than 5000ppm: It may cause severe hypoxia, causing permanent brain damage, coma, and even death.

The NetAtmo Weather Station Ensemble

NetAtmo Weather Station – My Weather Station of Choice for Durham Weather I’ve been using the stylish NetAtmo Weather Station for about 2 years now so I’ve given it a good test.

The NetAtmo Weather Station is no different. Setting up the NetAtmo Weather Staion is quite easy though as it’s all done through the NetAtmo mobile app, which then connects all of the modules wirelessly to your wifi network. The base station is mains powered, whilst the external sensors are all powered by AA batteries. The batteries last for a long time, powering the kit for 1-2 years without needing a change. I did actually have a faulty external unit when I first bought the NetAtmo Weather Station, it was chewing through battery sets every 3-4 days (clearly nor right!), but NetAtmo replaced the unit quickly under warranty within a few days. My current is the NetAtmo Weather Station The Netatmo Weather station comes very well packaged, direct from France (you can also get it from Amazon). …

Our Weather Shop has some of the best home weather stations on the market in the UK. If you're looking to buy a home weather station, buy it here.

Description of the Davis Instruments Vantage Vue 6250 Weather Station. The new Davis Vantage Vue weather station combines Davis’ legendary accuracy and rugged durability into a compact station. It’s very easy to set up and use (see the video below). The Davis Vantage Vue includes a sleek but tough outdoor sensor array and the distinctive LCD console. Its unique Weather Center function provides additional information on each weather variable being measured. In addition, Davis has made Vantage Vue radio-compatible with the flagship Vantage Pro2 stations so you can mix-and-match most components.
