SINGAPORE, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- uHoo, the world's most advanced indoor air quality detector which provides real-time alerts on unhealthy air, today announced that it is taking pre-orders on products, available for shipping worldwide.
More than any other product in the market, uHoo goes deeper, detecting Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ozone, Air Pressure, Volatile Organic Compounds (which are found in paint and home cleaning products), Temperature, Dust and Humidity and all sensors are dedicated, which is not the case with most other solutions.
With concerns on indoor air quality at an all-time high and the fact that we spend nearly 90% of our time indoors (some studies say more), uHoo aims to transform people's health by providing an affordable solution for asthma and allergy sufferers, for people with toddlers at home and for anyone who genuinely cares about their health.
"While the media cover health issues related to outdoor air pollution, the less known silent killer among us is indoor air quality, which can be up to five times worse than outdoor air," said Dustin Jefferson Onghanseng, CEO and co-founder of uHoo. "Couple that with unhealthy indoor air being linked to cancer and heart disease, 6 in 10 homes being hazardous to their owner's health and half of America's schools having issues related to indoor air quality, a product that detects the particles and chemicals we breathe in real-time can transform people's health."
What Don't We Know?
Given the tragic news reports on poor air quality in schools and drinking water in Michigan, it's more important than ever to be proactive and know whether you're in a healthy environment before it's too late. With uHoo, you can know first-hand what the quality of air is like in any room or building where you live or work. uHoo is only 3.3 inches in diameter, 6.2 inches high and weighs less than a pound, so it can easily sit unnoticed at home, in gyms, churches, spas, community centers, basements, your office or kid's bedroom. The list is endless as to where uHoo can be used.
According to the American Lung Association, "it's hard to know when air in your home needs cleaning; the indoor air you breathe can be hazardous to your health without any telltale signs." We can't manage what we don't know or can't measure.
Revolutionary For Businesses Too
You can have multiple devices on one account, so you can monitor different locations around the clock. This is not just a great feature for businesses that are looking to ensure the quality of the air is healthy for employee's optimal well-being and productivity, but can significantly reduce operating and health-related costs by knowing how to regulate the air more effectively. Research conducted by the Berkeley Laboratory at the University of California showed that a better indoor environment in workplaces has potential annual health care savings and productivity gains of $528 to $669 per person.
How It Works
Simply plug uHoo in to a power outlet and connect it to the WiFi network -- uHoo does the rest. The quality of air is detected instantly and shows up on your smartphone via a free app (support for both iOS and Android). All of this data is securely and safely stored in the cloud for easy access from anywhere in the world and can be shared with loved ones and/or health practitioners. The ability to share data and devices means that you can stay on top of other family member's indoor air quality, such as an aging parent or grandparent, or your child when you are away.
Versions & Features
uHoo comes in two versions: Classic and Premium, the main difference being the number of dedicated sensors that the device will detect. The mobile app allows you to keep an ongoing history of the indoor air quality for every room you set up and to share that history with others. uHoo also offers real-time alerts so you can know when the air quality changes and offers suggestions on what you can do to improve it. The device comes with a power adapter, and a micro-USB cable.
