Sensors for Nurseries and Kids' Rooms: Keep Them Comfortable and Safe
Babies and children tend to be more sensitive to their environment and can't regulate their bodies as adults can. A room too warm might disrupt sleep, or a room with low humidity might cause dry eyes. Ambient Weather® offers various indoor sensors to keep you informed on their environment and send alerts if anything changes. Best of all, each sensor can be monitored on our cloud hosting platform Ambientweather.net and used in combination with IFTTT compatible devices. Here are some of our favorite products to maintain a comfortable and safe space for your child:
Temperature and Humidity Sensors
A temperature sensor can create an ideal room climate and prevent a child from becoming too cold or hot during sleep or play. Furthermore, humidity is a secondary measure that should continuously be monitored alongside temperature. A dry room can cause problems such as dry mouth and skin irritation. At the same time, a room with too high humidity could lead to bacteria growth. Ambient Weather offers the perfect combination, with a sensor that measures both temperature and humidity to determine the safest and most comfortable environment for your baby or child. This isn't your typical temperature and humidity sensor; you can monitor, track and set up alerts on Ambientweather.net via your weather station and use it with IFTTT devices such as a smart thermostat. If you are interested, learn more about IFTTT connections.
The Ambient Weather WH31E® Wireless Temperature & Humidity Sensor monitors temperature and humidity in up to 8 remote locations using channel dip switches. Place the sensor in an area of concern and view your measurements in real-time on the LCD display or our cloud hosting service at AmbientWeather.net via one of our compatible weather stations. The WH31E sensor can be used as a stand-alone, but it is not recommended as you will lose the capability to monitor conditions and receive alerts remotely. Our sensor also talks to other IFTTT smart home devices, so you can do things like close blinds or turn down your thermostat when it's too hot.
Air Quality Sensors
Poor air quality can cause lung inflammation, tissue damage, and a myriad of other respiratory problems. Ambient Weather offers several different sensors that measure tiny particulate matter (PM) in the air so you can keep your children safe.
Airborne particulate matter (PM) is a mixture of pollutants that vary in shape, size, and chemical composition. Those with a diameter of 10 microns or less (PM10) are inhalable into the lungs, and fine particulate matter is defined as particles that are 2.5 microns or less in diameter (PM2.5). Emissions from combustion (cars, fireplaces, etc.) produce much of the PM2.5 pollution found in outdoor air, while PM10 are larger particles and can include dust, pollen, and fragments of bacteria.
The Ambient Weather AQIN® Air Quality Particulate Monitor is an air quality monitor that measures indoor PM2.5, PM10, and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) concentration levels. Use alongside a compatible Ambient Weather Station and send data to AmbientWeather.net, where you can monitor and analyze your air quality. This sensor is for indoor use ONLY and offers no protection from water.
The Ambient Weather PM25IN® Particulate Monitor is an indoor air quality monitor that measures 2.5PM in the air. This sensor also easily connects to your Ambient Weather Station and sends data to AmbientWeather.net. The PM25IN sensor is for indoor use ONLY. The Ambient Weather PM25 Particulate Monitor is for outdoor use.
