Netatmo Launches Healthy Home Coach

NetmoSmart home firm Netatmo has launched Healthy Home Coach, a smart indoor climate monitor designed to help users create a healthier home environment. Healthy Home Coach tracks and records indoor environmental elements – air quality, humidity, temperature and noise – and offers advice to improve the indoor climate. The device is compatible with iPhones running iOS 9 and above, and Android smartphones running 4.2 and above.

The monitor tracks and records all indoor environmental elements, collecting personalized data from the users environment and providing actionable, customised insights based on the season, the time of the day, the measurements or the users’ profiles.

Users can access home’s indoor climate conditions from any location via the app, which can control multiple monitors. If one of the indoor environmental elements reaches an excessive level, the user is alerted through notifications to a mobile device. Thanks to compatibility with Apple HomeKit, users can also ask Siri how healthy their home is.

“Whether it’s optimum noise levels for sound sleeping, or the right humidity levels for a child with asthma, Healthy Home Coach measures what matters, highlights potential problems, and advises the user how to fix them,” according to Netatmo CEO and founder, Fred Potter. “We spend up to 90 per cent of our daily life indoors,” continues Fred Potter, “Our indoor living spaces are three to eight times more polluted than outdoors, contributing to allergies, spreading illness, sapping productivity and even impairing health over time. But, it’s hard to care about what you can’t see or control. Healthy Home Coach gives you the tools to know if your home is healthy or not.”

The monitor is available now and retails for £99.99 at Apple Stores, Amazon and via Netatmo’s website. There are no ongoing subscription fees after the initial purchase.
