“The most important environmental factors that could impact on the viability of airborne microorganisms are temperature, humidity, radiation (sunlight), and open-air (ventilation)” ().

“As the environmental factors play a major role in transmitting payloads of SARS-CoV-2 virus in different geographical locations of outdoor and indoor environments, it is worthy of exploring the effects of environmental factors on the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 virus. Furthermore, there have been associations between air pollution represented by air pollutants such as PM2.5, PM10, NO2, and O3 and COVID-19 infection” (). SARS-CoV-2 could bind with particulate matter and could be airborne.

PiCO tracks the air you breathe and gives you personalised recommendations right on your mobile phone to keep you, your family and colleagues safe ,– It goes anywhere. 

PiCO can also fit in your palm and is small, compact, lightweight, and beautiful. – It knows what you breathe. PiCO’s highly accurate sensors can measure harmful substances in the air – It’s incredibly smart. 

PiCO and its mobile app keeps you regularly updated on the air you breathe.

• Wi-Fi communication
• Enhanced accuracy of the temperature, relative humidity, and VOCs
• Flash memory for storing air quality data without a network connection
• Integrates with Amazon’s Alexa
• Mobile application updates with better UI & UX

Live healthier. Know what you breathe.

PiCO is an elegant, personal smart air quality monitor that can tell what’s in the air you breathe. It measures dangerous particulates in the air in real-time.
Its high-quality sensors provide critical, real-time information about the air quality around you instantly at a glance, and gives you recommendations on what you can do to improve the air you breathe.
Unlike traditional air monitors, PiCO Home provides you with peace of mind with a combination of high-reliable data, portability, and low price.

1. MEMS Metal-oxide Gas Sensor: MEMS is the industry standard for detecting potentially harmful gases in the air. PiCO senses Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) released by cleaning agents, paints, and carpets, flooring, and even your family! The MEMS sensor picks up any trace of Acetone, methanol, ethanol, and other harmful compounds in the air.
High levels of VOCs in the air can have an impact on general comfort and well-being, as well as taking a toll on cognitive abilities.
The MEMS Metal-oxide Gas sensing element is first class when it comes to real-world application. It has long-term stability and a low drift (meaning one will always be 1). It’s also protected against dust and water, making it extremely robust and durable.
2. CMOSens® Sensor: When professionals need to measure temperature and humidity, they trust CMOSens®. So do we.
3. Laser Particle Sensor: PiCO Home’s laser-based particle sensor is far more accurate than cheap, dull LED sensors, ensuring accurate measurement of fine dust (PM2.5 and PM10) in the air.
  • Wi-Fi communication
  • Enhanced accuracy of the temperature, relative humidity, and VOCs
  • FLash memory for storing air quality data without a network connection
  • Mobile application updates with better UI & UX
4.3 million people die annually from exposure to household air pollutants.
Stroke (34%), heart disease (26%) and chronic pulmonary disease (22%). Pneumonia and lung cancer account for 12% and 6% of deaths respectively.

 

PiCO has received certification from the Korea Testing and Research Institute (KTR). This certifies PiCO with a “first-class level 1” rating, meaning that PiCO Home is top class in terms of sensor measurement, monitoring, accuracy, and precision.

*Final overall average by these 5 test items. Level 1 denotes the highest level grade accuracy.
