    Amazon First Air Quality Monitor

    Did anyone integrated yet the Amazon First Air quality Monitor sensor?

    Had not heard about the Amazon First Air Quality Monitor but while searching for it I found this other related/hackable option from IKEA:

        The IKEA is limited... why hack around with this when you can get something that is local (zigbee) and more versatile than just p2.5 and already works:

          You guys are a bad influence 😂

          looks like the Amazon one is junk at this point. You need to go into the app to see the values, kind of useless

            How is your experience with aliexpress? I never bought anything yet.

              I've bought dozens of items from them. It's the same exact stuff you'd find on Amazon, only cheaper since you're getting it straight from the OEM/manufacturer.
              I just took another delivery yesterday of more Zigbee/Aqara window sensors, about $10 a piece and they outperform any Z-wave sensors I've ever tested.

              Shipping only took less than 3-weeks, which is about normal.

                I purchased it from aliexpress, it looks like a great device, thanks for the tip. It seems that it needs power, I was thinking if I could power it with some sort of cat6 cable since I could bring it in the middle of the house.

                  I use the Purple Air detector. It was easy to write an HS script to interrogate it from Homeseer.

                  https://www.purpleair.com

                  And if you do not want to have the device itself, you can always interrogate the Purple Air web site for other detectors in your area.

                    Agreed, seems like there are a number of decent Zigbee options, this one as well:

                      @123qweasd,

                      What would you recommend that I can put current version of Tasmota on being sold on Amazon?

                      Decided here to just use Tasmota devices in house Forum Easier to manage all of them at once with the HA Tasmota plugin.
                      Running HA and HS on an Intel Jetway Micro PC (tiny thing).


                      IE: TasmoAdmin

                      Googling found this one:

                      SDS011 air quality sensor

                      Nova PM Sensor SDS011 can measure the air quality very accurately by measuring air particles or dust based on laser detection.

                      Specifications:
                      • Voltage: 4.7 - 5.3V DC (5V DC with <20mV ripple advised)
                      • Power consumption: 70mA ±10mA (in operation), <4mA (laser and fan sleep mode)
                      • Measuring range: 0.0-999.9 μg/m3
                      • PM2.5 and PM10 output

                        Hi Pete , for air quality monitoring I guess it all comes down to how many metrics you want to track; from what I can see, you would have to configure 4-6 different sensors ( PM2.5 Formaldehyde TVOC CO2 Temperature Humidity ) and build some kind of enclosure for the Tasmota option. Could be an interesting project if the cost was significantly lower but the Zigbee/Tuya all in one, pre built, is around 25$ .

                        ​​​​​https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003871668990.html

                        So I guess unless you want to pick and choose better quality / individual sensors, Zigbee seems like a better option...

                          I purchased this one but when I add it to the network, I see it in HS as Smart Plug. I'm using JowiHue plugin Version 3. Do I need to upgrade it to 4?

                          Thanks

                            What does the device look like in Phoscon? I'm assuming you're using either a ConBee2 or RaspBee2 for the zigbee controller.
                            From checking the deconz github it's questionable as to whether support for this device was ever added to production code, though it was requested around a year ago.

                            Probably best to continue this in the JowiHue forum.

                              I don't think you can compare the two. The Zigbee detector does not measure PM2.5 which is completely different to CO2 or VOC monitoring.

                              I just picked up an IKEA VINDRIKTNING Air Quality Monitor, added a BM680 and D1 Mini using Tasmota all installed and working in under an hour. This gives PM 2.5, VOC, Temperature, Humidity, Dew Point & Pressure. If you need CO2, a CJMCU-811 could be used.
