Your home may suffer from common indoor air quality issues, such as allergens, chemical pollutants, or poor humidity, which can lead to mild discomfort or even severe symptoms, negatively impacting your quality of life.
The Govee Smart Air Quality Monitor is a valuable investment to address these concerns. This device tracks temperature, relative humidity, and the concentration of fine particulate matter, offering real-time reports on your indoor air quality and enabling you to take necessary actions for improvement.
While Govee is well-known for its affordable smart lighting products, the Smart Air Quality Monitor is an inconspicuous device that can be placed on an end table or shelf. Powered by AC through USB-C, it requires proximity to an electrical outlet.
The front display provides information on the current temperature, relative humidity, and PM 2.5 levels (particulate matter with a diameter of 2.5 microns or smaller), measured in micrograms per cubic meter of air (µg/m3). An LED indicator changes color according to the PM 2.5 concentration, with green indicating levels below 35µg/m3, blue for levels between 35 and 75µg/m3, yellow for levels between 75 and 115µg/m3, and red for levels exceeding 115µg/m3.
The monitor’s only built-in control is a function button on its top, which allows you to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature readings with a single click or toggle between PM2.5 readings and the current time with a long press, as stated in the user manual.
Furthermore, the Govee Home app offers detailed instructions for connecting the monitor to your Amazon Alexa account, enabling voice control through an Amazon Echo device or the Alexa app (Google Assistant support is currently not available).
