Handheld Sensor Tracks Carbon Dioxide Levels Throughout the Day

Handheld Sensor Tracks Carbon Dioxide Levels Throughout the Day

The NODE's CO2 module measures the air quality and sends the info to a smart device.

Chattanooga, Tennessee-based company Variable, Inc. has launched and successfully funded another module for NODE, the tube-like wireless sensor platform that measures things like temperature and motion and sends the information to the user’s smart device.

The new module, NODE + CO2, uses a miniaturized Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) sensor to measure the carbon dioxide levels of the air around it and sends the information to the user’s smartphone or tablet. The accompanying N+Oxa app will sync the CO2 data with the NODE Blue™ cloud server so that users can retrieve their data anywhere and anytime.

The module can do quick CO2 readings in a home, office or classroom, and the creators are working to enable the device to track CO2 levels over a period of time. They are also looking into enabling it to store CO2 data when there is no smart device in range.

The NODE + CO2 had just finished its campaign on Kickstarter and will start shipping out in April.

NODE was launched and funded on Kickstarter in March 2012. A few months later the company successfully funded its Chroma module, a color sensor that scans any color on any surface and translates the information to a color code for the user.
