Currently there are a large number of home automation accessories. From bathroom water analyzers, through adjustable lights from our devices or activated and automatic sprinklers. A large number of companies joined forces to generate a home automation standard that would allow compatibility between operating systems and products, and the result was Matter, a standard supported by iOS and iPadOS. A few hours ago we learned about a new IKEA product that is compatible with the Matter standard that allows us to analyze the air quality in our home: VINDSTYRKA.
Analyze the air quality in your home with VINDSTYRKA, compatible with the Matter standard
As we have been saying, Matter is a new state-of-the-art home automation standard which was designed with the aim of allowing smart devices from different brands and manufacturers to communicate securely and seamlessly. Some of the companies involved are Apple, Google or Amazon for being some of the most important in terms of operating systems and related accessories.
Eve, Aqara, Amazon and Philips switch to Matter
The aim of the accessories is, therefore, integrate into the Matter standard to bring synchronization and compatibility to every home in the world. IKEA is one of the most important companies that is beginning to implement affordable home automation devices of relatively remarkable quality and that little by little is being integrated into the standards that we have been discussing.
The sensor is not supported by Matter on its own, but is supported through the IKEA DIRIGERA hub.
Your new accessory is VINDSTYRKAa intelligent sensor that analyzes the air quality of our house. As we can see in the images, it is an accessory with a relatively large screen where it shows us information related to air quality through the parameter particulate matter 2.5 or PM2.5, which are those particles suspended in the air that have a diameter of less than 2.5 microns and that are harmful to health. Also shown information on temperature, humidity and volatile organic compounds, that allow us to analyze the quality of the air breathed in our home.
The price is still unknown but It will reach large IKEA stores throughout the month of April 2023. And you, will you buy it?
