Not all sensors are created equal - and where health is concerned, precision matters! The Node combines cutting-edge laser technology, airflow control, and a crafted calibration algorithm to achieve the most accurate data available on a consumer device.
Compare indoor ratings from the Node’s sensor with outdoor ratings taken from your nearest monitoring station* to discover sources of pollution and know when to open or close your windows. *Check airvisual.com/world for outdoor station availability.
Use the Node’s internal battery, storage and high precision sensors to take measurements at home, in the classroom, car and beyond. The Node was developed with researchers, HVAC professionals and curious individuals in mind. Retrieve your data wirelessly, analyze it and reach your own conclusions.
Be proactive in avoiding harmful outdoor air pollution. AirVisual uses in-house data and machine learning to forecast air quality in 8,000 locations worldwide*, helping you stay prepared and plan your activities for the healthiest times. *Check airvisual.com/world for outdoor station availability
Many places around the world still lack local air quality data. By placing your Node outdoors and designating it as a public outdoor station, you become a data source - providing neighbours, researchers, and policy advocates valuable information about your local community.
The Node’s bright 5” screen uses easy to understand, color-coded symbols to quickly convey your air quality at a glance, without having to rely on an app. Watch the display rotate through indoor and outdoor AQI, CO2, air quality & weather forecasts and personalized advice.

How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Having lived in Beijing for two decades, a city with 8 times the WHO-recommended pollution threshold, we sought to better understand the risks in the air we and our families were breathing, indoors and out. With a background in big data, sensors and IoT devices, we were able to bring a novel approach to the pollution problem, empowering people to improve their health and productivity by providing them with the data and information they need. The Node helps localize the air pollution challenge down to the individual, making a seemingly daunting task as manageable as a single room.
What makes your product special?
The Node goes a step further than other monitors, giving you the biggest picture of your air quality. It shows you exactly where you stand, considering indoor and outdoor air, and showing you both historical, real-time and forecast data. It takes professional-grade, accurate measurements and visualizes these in a colourful and easy-to-understand way on-screen so that children, parents and passers-by alike can benefit from knowing their environment, and how to respond. Its internal battery allows people to pick up the Node, walk around and immediately see changes in your air quality on the Node’s screen.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Critical to launching the project off the ground was a successful crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo. Through the campaign we were able to connect with supporters in over 35 countries worldwide, offering tools to improve their wellbeing and democratize their local air quality. The Node’s unique ability to be placed outdoors and listed as a public outdoor station has helped provide local communities which previously lacked air quality data, with the information needed to generate awareness and help improve people’s health. AirVisual is now the first to report live outdoor air quality in Saudi Arabia, Cambodia, Pakistan, Italy and the Philippines - with significant results! Sound interesting? Let us help you get your local air quality on the crowd sourced map!
