If you want to keep an eye on the air quality in your home, you can’t go wrong with the IKEA VINDRIKTNING air quality sensor. It only costs $12, and uses colored LEDs to tell you the relative air quality in your home. Maker Sören Beye has extended the capability of the sensor even further, enabling Wi-Fi logging of the data. All you need, in addition to the air quality sensor, is an ESP8266 microcontroller, a couple short jumper wires, a soldering iron, and a long PH0 screwdriver. Oh, you don’t even have to program it yourself, because Beye provides that along with full instructions on Github. It’s a fair bit less expensive, and more fun, than just buying something like the Airthings Wave Mini.Arduin
