The AirBeam measures harmful microscopic air particles (particulate matter), humidity, and temperature.



In mobile mode, the AirBeam can be worn to capture personal exposures. In fixed mode, it can be installed indoors or outdoors - it’s weather resistant and doesn’t need a shelter - to keep tabs on pollution levels in your home, office, backyard, or neighborhood 24/7.

3 Beam

When used in mobile mode as a wearable, the AirBeam communicates measurements to the Android device every second via Bluetooth. When used as a fixed instrument installed indoors or outdoors, the AirBeam communicates measurements directly to the AirCasting website every minute via either the WiFi or cellular network.

4 Visualize

AirBeam data is then aggregated and crowdsourced on the AirCasting website, allowing AirCasters to visualize areas where air pollutant concentrations are highest and lowest and share their data with their community.
