BreezoMeter’s air quality experts regularly attend CES to demonstrate how personalized environmental data and air quality integrations can create new opportunities & disrupts markets across industries.
Air Quality Integrations: New Technology, New Opportunities
In previous years at CES, we showcased a number of leading brands that are already leveraging personalized air quality data to increase product sales, adoption & usage:
Smart Homes & IoT
Blueair, Johnson Controls & Aldes use BreezoMeter’s real-time AQ to help customers understand when to switch on their air purifiers & ventilation systems – protecting home & health.
Healthcare & Wellness
ALK uses BreezoMeter to communicate pollen levels to seasonal allergy sufferers where they are – so they know when it’s safe to be outside & when to carry allergy medication.
Cosmetics & Skincare
L’Oreal uses Breezometer 24/7 AQ information to give personalized skincare recommendations based on actual exposure to air pollution.
Hella uses BreezoMeter’s forecast & live AQ data to prevent in-cabin contamination – using driver alerts & alternate route suggestions.
The City of Paris deployed BreezoMeter’s street-level AQ insights to inform city planning, promote sustainable travel & enhance public spaces.
Media & Advertising
Weatherbug & Neutrogena use BreezoMeter’s location-specific AQ to pinpoint their campaign targeting and boost engagement.
Our Booth in 2019
Aldes Smart Companion Walter®
Among the featured integrations in our Air Purification and Smart Homes center was Walter®, by Aldes, the sleek residential companion with a nice smile, who measures and controls indoor air quality for you and your family, making your indoor air healthier. Walter® integrates BreezoMeter’s real-time outdoor air quality data in order to show users the full air quality picture, and better inform control of
indoor air quality.
Johnson Controls – Smart Thermostat
Additionally, GLAS® smart thermostat by Johnson Controls was on display at our CES 2019 booth. This connected device monitors air quality, and works with most air systems, allowing you to be confident about the air you breathe. It monitors total VOCs and equivalent CO2, while providing BreezoMeter’s pollen and air quality data for the corresponding outdoor location, something especially useful for asthma and allergy sufferers.
AirThings Radon Detector
Airthings displayed Wave, a real-time radon detector, rounding out the Air Purification and Smart Homes area of our booth. Wave fits in any home and is easy for anyone to use. With simply the wave of a hand, the connected device conveys the current radon levels in the home with an easy-to-understand tricolor system. The Airthings dashboard provides additional information to its users, such as BreezoMeter’s outdoor air quality data, helping users make smarter decisions about when to open windows and air things out, or when to keep things closed, as would be suggested in the event of lower outdoor air quality. The real-time approach of both the radon and outdoor air quality data helps users keep their homes as safe and healthy as possible.
KapCode – Connected Inhaler
Over in the Medical Device and Digital Health section of our booth we were displaying KapCode’s innovative connected inhaler, Connect’inh. As Kap Code explains,
The connected revolution is changing the way we think about healthcare. Data from these devices are now accurate enough and scientifically validated which helps health professionals adapt and personalize patients’ care.
By integrating BreezoMeter’s externally validated, real-time, and location-based air quality data, Kap Code is able to alert patients in advance of worsening air conditions, using the 96-hour air quality forecast feature, and can better understand the air pollution conditions during which a patient uses their connected devices, granting insight to individual air sensitivities and triggers for health crises.
L’Oreal – My Skin Track UV
Also on display was L’Oréal’s My Skin Track UV, a small, battery-free wearable electronic device that allows its wearers to measure and track their exposure to UV radiation. Its corresponding app provides information and tips for reducing exposure to UV and air pollution, which can severely hurt our body’s largest organ, our skin. The app provides UV index and integrates BreezoMeter’s air quality and pollen data, as well as insights into our global, unified air quality index, pollutant sources and health effects, current and ‘safe’ pollutant concentrations, and weather information.
Toxic Toby – McCann Advertising Campaign
We were also pleased to show the Toxic Toby use case in the Media and Advertising area of our booth. Toxic Toby is an animatronic teddy bear that advertising giant McCann London deployed on the streets of London to show, on a personable level, the air pollution at that specific location. BreezoMeter’s air quality data has been integrated into the teddy bear, who coughs and wheezes when air pollution levels are increased, and sends tweets and social media messages to relevant representatives in government, in an effort to draw attention to the rising problem and global health crisis that air pollution represents.
