Awair 2nd Edition review: Number 2, but in a good way

Air quality readings so detailed that they just may scare you into holding your breath — or doing something about it.

I checked out the Awair Glow a while back and loved its double duty as air quality monitor and smart plug. I was then asked more recently to review the Awair 2nd Edition — it’s the second iteration of the main Awair air quality monitor, and I figured I better give the bigger, better device a  [Read More…]
