The Air Comfort Skill provides insights into the quality of the air in your surroundings and suggests ways in which you can improve the climate in your home.
Besides the room climate, which depends on multiple factors such as temperature and humidity, tado° also uses outdoor air quality data for your home’s location to help you ventilate your home at the right time.
This card shows how fresh the air in your home is at the moment. It also gives an overview of the current outdoor air quality in your street as well as the level of pollen during high pollen count periods. This information helps you to decide when it’s a good time to air your rooms.
This card shows the current concentration of the six most relevant pollutants in the outside air: fine and inhalable particulate matter, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. High concentrations of these pollutants in the air over a long time can have negative effects on your health.
The overall air quality index is shown at the bottom of this card. The higher the index, the better the outside air quality. So a high value on this index means that it's a good time to air your rooms and a low value means that it’s better to keep your windows closed.
This card shows the current day’s pollen level and the pollen forecast for the next two days. Those suffering from allergies can see the levels of pollen from local grasses, weeds, and trees around them.
Currently the Pollen Forecast and Outside Air cards are available in the following countries: Germany, UK, Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Spain, Belgium, France, Denmark, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Ireland, USA, Poland, Luxembourg.
Comfort Level per room
You can also get to know the current comfort level in every room which has a tado° device installed. This is indicated by the status in the upper right corner and the small white dot in the graph in the room card. When the indoor climate is ideal, the status will say Pleasant and the white dot will be in the center of the graph.
tado° considers the temperature and humidity level in the room and arrives at the comfort level based on an international standard for thermal indoor conditions. The standard also accounts for adaptive comfort across seasons, which is why you may notice that different ideal values apply for comfort during winter and summer. tado° also indicates if the room is too humid or dry and warns you if there is a risk of mold or infection.
