Dylos DC1100 Pro Air Quality Monitor

Most posts on this site have to do with home automation, however having a healthy and safe home fits well with smart home guide. The DC1100 currently monitors my basement workshop. Ideally, I want to be able to automatically turn on my WEN Air Filtration system when it detects a spike in particles in the air. At this time I just have it logging to a neat graph (thanks to the wonderful support from amCharts). I’d like to add more sensors, including an outdoor one in the near future.

The Dylos DC1100 logs a sample every 60 seconds and records it into a text file. The pie chart below gives a visual representation of the air quality over a given period of time. As you can see, the air quality was recorded within the “fair” range nearly 50 percent of the time between February 3rd and February 14th 2017.

One thing I like about the Dylos DC1100’s physical appearance is that is has a digital display on front of the device. It displays the small particles down to 0.5 μ and the large particles down to 2.5 μ however you need to times the values by 100 to get the actual count. The graphed values above are the actual count per cubic foot.
