Thank you so much for taking the time to share all of your feedback about the HomeHealth feature on Canary All-in-One. I can certainly understand the interest in seeing more detailed Air Quality information, and we have been reading all of your comments about this with great interest.
The air quality sensor used in the Canary All-in-One can detect changes in the chemical makeup of the air in your home, and will alert you when the air seems different than what is normal for your environment. This is a general indicator that you can use along with other information from your Canary to determine if something unusual is going on. For example, if your air suddenly spikes to very abnormal you may want to check Watch Live to see if there is smoke in the home or a window has suddenly been opened. However, the hardware sensor does have its limitations and isn’t able to determine exactly what chemical is being detected and in what percentage.
We’d urge everyone to invest in a dedicated smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector if you don’t already have one. If you are particularly concerned about your air quality, there are also devices on the market which can tell you much more specific information about the chemical makeup of the air in your home.
Please let us know if you have any questions at all about this and we’re happy to help.
