Sleep is a precious commodity when you’re a parent, and I try my best to do everything possible to get a good night’s sleep. I’ve stopped eating late at night, stopped using electronics right before bed, I’ve even started using aromatherapy products to help me relax and get more sleep. Even with everything I’m doing, I still feel like there’s more I could to to get better rest at all. That’s where technology is joining my lineup in helping me get better sleep, with Awair.

Did you know that indoor air quality can be 5x more polluted than outdoors? This pollution can be completely invisible yet can have serious effects on our health, leading to coughing, chest tightness, irritation of eyes/nose/throat and triggering respiratory problems.
Awair, the creators of intelligent air quality monitors for homes and enterprise, today launches the Awair 2nd Edition, a sophisticated solution for helping consumers understand and optimize the health of their indoor air quality. The Awair 2nd Edition empowers consumers with real-time insights on air quality to help them breathe easier, reduce allergy or asthmatic symptoms and even keep their skin clearer. Awair 2nd Edition is
now available on www.getawair.com for $199.
The Awair 2nd Edition monitors the five key air pollutants that can significantly impact a person’s health: fine dust, chemicals (Volatile Organic Compounds), CO 2, humidity, and temperature. It provides more acute readings of “Fine Dust” levels (or PM2.5), which is typically very difficult to detect yet easy to breathe in.
Here are the Awair 2nd Edition’s key features:

Data from the device is analyzed and displayed within the free partner app, which delivers real-time notifications that let users know when their air needs attention. The app also provides personalized recommendations curated by experts and decades of research on how users can make improvements to their air quality. For example, if the device senses a sharp increase in Chemical (VOC) levels, the user would be shown a recommendation that offers various solutions that increase ventilation or identifies the source. As more data is collected, the app can provide deeper analysis into trends and improvement of air quality over time.
The Awair 2nd edition also includes the Sleep Report feature within the app that uses an algorithm to help users optimize their bedroom for a good night’s rest. With 27% of U.S. adults having trouble with falling asleep, the Awair 2nd Edition can put some of their sleep-related issues to rest.
I was excited about testing out the Awair 2nd Edition in our home. Since becoming a homeowner, I’ve added different technology aspects to help us save on energy, simplify tasks, complete chores, and track air quality. Getting started is super easy with Awair. Once you get it at home and plug it in, give it a few minutes to get the first set of readings and you’re ready to track your air quality in your home.
I feel secure and confident with my Awair in our house. I can easily see when the quality of air drops in our home. Most times I just need to open a window and I can see the improvement within minutes. The notification on my phone are perfect for when I’m in different areas of the house or even when we aren’t home. I’m always connected to my house with this device.
The Awair 2nd Edition makes a cycling noise when in use. It took us a few days to get accustomed to the noise, now we don’t even notice it when we’re in the same room as the device.
Every morning I get a notification on my phone, with my sleep report. It provides insightful data about the air quality in my room and how it’s affecting my sleep quality. It didn’t take long for me to notice patterns and make adjustments for better sleep. For instance, I can’t sleep well when I’m hot, so now we keep the radiator heat cooler at night, and slowly warm up the house in the early mornings. Technology has made it so much easier for us to keep the house at a comfortable temperature when we sleep and when we wake in the morning.
If you’re looking for a unique housewarming or wedding gift, I highly suggest the Awair 2nd Edition. It’s a gift that keeps on giving and one the receiver will use immediately. Homeowners looking to add more technology into their homes should also consider their device since it helps track so many things in your home. You can also link it with other smart devices to maximize its uses.
