Netatmo's home monitor tracks air quality, humidity and more

It provides the data, but you have to provide the action.

While it's far from a new idea, home air quality monitoring has seen something of a resurgence of late. Dyson in particular has been pushing pollution awareness alongside its range of purifiers, and now Netatmo is jumping on the trend. The device pictured above may look just like Netatmo's Welcome connected camera, but instead of a lens, the little tower hosts a quartet of environmental sensors instead. The Healthy Home Coach, as it's called, monitors air quality in real-time, as well humidity, temperature and noise.

Beyond recording information about your home's microclimate, though, there's nothing the device can actually do with that data. The companion mobile app will tell you when your abode needs a proper airing if pollution surpasses a certain level, and can advise you on optimal humidity as well as the right temperature to keep toddlers comfortable. But for the most part, it provides the data and you provide the action.

If you're happy with that arrangement, the Healthy Home Coach launches worldwide today for $99, £99 or €99, depending on your region. It can be purchased directly from Netatmo's online store, or you can track it down at other retailers such as Amazon, Lowes, Best Buy and Home Depot.
