Why cair

cair is designed to help people with allergies and asthma manage their conditions better by avoiding exposure to asthma & allergy triggers indoors - where we spend most of our time.

By informing users whenever air quality is starting to reach levels which previously caused an allergy or asthma issue cair enables users to take preventative action before it becomes a problem – such as opening an window or taking allergy medications.

Your Asthma & Allergy Triggers

Triggers are particles or chemicals present in the air that can illicit an allergic response for people with allergies or asthma and range from dust mites, mold spores, to chemicals in the air. Most people are unaware of their own specific triggers, and are often unaware of impeding episodes because of this.

Take a deep breath.

Take a deep breath. Indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. We spend up to 90% of our time indoors so clean indoor air is essential for your wellbeing.

How cair works?

cair is a two part system – the sensor collects information about the air quality in your home. Every 60 seconds a reading is taken of the pollutants which are responsible for most asthma and allergy issues. The sensor sends the data online to the cair cloud where it is analysed and processed.

Large Particles

Dust, ash, large bacteria, and dense oil smoke are some of the other examples of coarse particles .

Fine Particles

Fine particles cover a range of pollutants, from allergens (pet dander, dust mite droppings etc.), dense smoke, fine dust and some bacterial spores.


Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals which easily evaporate, quickly spreading and becoming suspended in the air.


Temperature plays a key role in maintaining a comfortable and healthy environment.


Maintaining a low humidity level can be helpful to people who suffer from asthma and allergies, as both dust mites and moulds favour damper environments.


The App

The app is how users interact with the sensor and the cair cloud system and has been designed to make the important features as easy to use as possible.

Log Event

The log event button lets users log an allergy or asthma issues with minimal button presses – this is what helps train the system to deliver personalised alerts.


The app will notify you whenever air quality becomes generally bad or if elements of air quality which you are sensitive to.


From here you can get an at-a-glance overview of how the air in your home is – using percentages and colour coded frames. If you want to learn more about what’s happening over time with each sensor you can access the historical information where you can see historical sensor data.

Managing Asthma & Allergies with cair

Asthma is a complex chronic disease and influenced by many factors, including poor air quality. Clinical management alone is not enough if we are exposed to asthma triggers regularly in our home - we also need to identify possible triggers to help prevent future symptoms and attacks. Research has shown components of indoor air pollution can cause and aggravate asthma & allergies. We are constantly at risk of exposure to asthma triggers in our home – smoke, mold, chemicals, pet dander etc.

Too Snug?

Our homes are becoming more airtight and less ventilated in an effort to be more energy efficient. This can be great for our energy bills but detrimental to our health. cair watches for build ups of toxins and lets you know when its time to ventilate – so you can have the best of both worlds.

Cooking and fires

Cooking using certain types of food oils vaporises VOC’s into our air, as does burning certain types of candles and wood burning stoves.
