Pollution and air quality both inside the home has become a global concern as the health effects of poor air are more widely understood. Over the summer of 2019/2020, Australia was ravaged by bushfire, and the air quality was greatly affected, even inside homes. Poor air quality is particularly an issue for children and people with underlying health conditions, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or cardiovascular disease.
The tado° system gives users a better insight into the air quality inside their homes and lives. In-app features allow users to track if your home and rooms are too humid or too dry and gives users actionable advice on when to ventilate the home or keep the windows closed.
