Other Cool Stuff We Lend

Carbon Dioxide Monitor

The Aranet4 HOME sensor is a pocket-sized air quality monitor that measures carbon dioxide (CO2) level, temperature, relative humidity, and atmospheric pressure. This battery powered device is suitable for monitoring the CO2 level at home, in school, office, or any other indoor environment. The Aranet4 measures the amount of carbon dioxide in the air every few minutes (measured in parts per million) and displays the results on the screen. The kits can be borrowed for 3 weeks and include a data sheet with information about where indoor CO2 comes from and how to interpret the readings from the monitor.
