With the rise of globalization and urbanization, the quantity and quality of the available resources have decreased at an alarming rate. And the degradation of air quality is one such example. The rise of sky-scrappers, deforestation, forest fires, burning of fossil fuels etc. all contributes to air pollution which have resulted in the degradation of air quality. To deal with this problem and detect the air quality around you, there is personal portable air quality detection device called “Huma-i”.
The sad reality is: the quality of air is degrading with each passing day. Consequently, people are getting exposed to the adverse effects of poor air quality and are getting affected from air borne diseases like bronchitis, asthma, lung cancer etc. which may turn fatal in the longer run. The air we breathe is a complicated mixture of gases that often gets altered by the harmful particulate matter which is invisible to naked eye and goes undetected by most of the sensors available in the market. To solve this issue and for easy detection of air quality Huma-i is the device one needs to look out for.
Huma-i is a portable air quality detection device which is simple to use and is equipped with the best designed sensor modules to offer accurate readings. It measures and delivers the exact readings of suspended fine and ultra-fine particulate matter (PM 10, PM2.5), carbon dioxide(CO2) levels, levels of other gases and volatile organic compounds present in the air. The best thing about Huma-i is, it offers user friendly ICON Mode that makes it convenient to use even for the first time users that aren’t familiar with fine dust levels. Also, the portable and compact design ensures that you can carry the device anywhere you feel like.
Areas of Application
You can carry and use this device at any time without much effort. A list of few examples are listed below.
Huma-i can be used:
- While going out for a walk with your little ones.
- While going out for jogging or cycling.
- While going for a family outing.
- For checking the air quality of indoor space.
- Portable and easy to carry.
- Offers exact readings of various types of pollutant levels(like CO2, VOC,dust particles etc.) present in the air.
- Comes with a high level of user-centered design that offers better visibility.
- Makes use of micro-fine particle laser detection sensor module technology.
- Incorporates micro-fine particle superior suction channel system technology.
- Product Type: Portable Air Quality Monitor
- Model No: Huma-i Black(HI-150)
- Dimensions: 3.6×1.6×1.5 inches(91x41x37 mm)
- Weight: 0.13 pounds(60g)

The device turns on when power button is pressed for 1 second. The device automatically gets turned off when not in use for 10 minutes, so as to save the battery life. The status LED blinks a minute before automatic power off so as to notify the user.
Mode Selection Button
Whenever the user presses the mode selection button, the display mode switches to the next mode as per the following order:
- Integrated Display Mode (PM2.5 / VOC / CO2)
- WHO Mode
- PM Mode (PM2.5 / PM10)
- VOC Mode
- CO2 Mode
- Temperature/Humidity Mode
The Status LED light conveys the status of CO2, VOC and fine dust/ultra-fine dust particle levels present in the air.
Integrated Display Mode
This mode helps to visualize the step-by-step graph so that the quality of air can be detected easily without diving into complex figures. This allows the users to view the levels of PM2.5, VOC and CO2 in one screen.
Good, Moderate, Poor and Unhealthy-are the 4 steps of graph that depicts the air quality.
WHO mode (Icon mode)
This is the special mode that allows the first time users to use this air quality device. It makes the use of 4 icons to depict the status of air quality. This mode automatically displays the level of good and worst air quality between PM 2.5 and PM 10.
PM (Particulate Matter) display mode : This mode represents the levels of PM2.5 and PM10 values.
VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) display mode : This mode represents the concentration of volatile organic compounds in air along with the ppm unit figures.
CO2 display mode : This mode displays the level of carbon dioxide gas in the air along with the ppm unit numbers.
Note: While measuring CO2 and VOC , the figures are displayed after 15-60 seconds after turning the device on and then, is updated after every second
Temperature/Humidity mode : This mode provides the user with the temperature and humidity levels in one screen.
Note: As the temperature/humidity sensor is inside the product so there can be a deviation of 5-10%
Battery Status Display
This icon displays the staus of remaining battery.
This portable air quality detection device is definitely a revolutionary product and a must-have for everyone. Not only it accounts for the air quality in the environment around you but also helps the users to stay away from harmful particles in the air.
