Sensly. An advanced gases detector

As you all know, we have a nice post with many air quality devices. Furthermore, last week we talked here about the next release of Koto, a new sensor. Today, we bring here a new device. Sensly is a nice product that can detect many gases. Keep reading to know more about it!


Sensly, all in one

Sensly is a portable device. You can bring it wherever you want. Thanks to its industrial gas sensors, it can tell you accurately the gas concentration. Moreover, when it detects that something isn’t working well, Sensly will make some recommendations to improve your air quality.

“Clean air is a basic requirement of life. The quality of air inside homes, offices, schools, day care centres, public buildings, health care facilities or other private and public buildings where people spend a large part of their life is an essential determinant of healthy life and people’s well-being.” – WHO Regional Office for Europe.

The gases detected by Sensly are the following ones: benzene (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), formaldehyde (CH2O), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), sulphur oxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3), particulate matter (PM10) and radiation. Amazing eh?

Many of those gases aren’t common in other sensors. Nevertheless, they can also affect your health as they have carcinogen effects or can cause respiratory problems. Apart from measuring gas concentration, Sensly can also measure temperature and relative humidity.

sensly software

The team behind Sensly has developed a nice and intuitive website to check the data collected. Also apps for smartphones are available.

Finally, for those enthusiasm people that want more, Sensly is availabe in Raspberry Pi. You can use it to monitor outdoor air quality, do some experiments etc.

Sensly is currently in Kickstarter looking for funding. Few days are left. Thus, if you want to be one of the first people to have it, hurry up! Meanwhile, we encourage you to visit their website and know more about it.
