I love the product...it's accurate and informative. I bought it when wildfires created days of smoke in my area. It validated that my air conditioning filter was taking most of the pollutants out of the indoor air. A bit challenging to pair, but finally figured it out...
Setup was pretty easy, just make sure you're connected to a 2.4ghz wifi network.
The device itself looks decent, and fits in well with most home furnishings. Honestly, you probably won't notice it too much until you look for it, which is good - it's non-obtrusive.
I live in a pretty clean air city, and the sensor seems to indicate this quite accurately. Would be curious how it works in somewhere like Beijing or Shanghai. It's a well-designed device that does exactly what it advertises.
Value for money product !
Given the PM2.5 situation in Thailand, this is a godsend.
I took it around with me one day and discovered exactly how different the quality of air is indoor and outdoor.
The reading inside my own house with open windows was 35.
Walking beside the road, it skyrocketed to 80.
In my air-conditioned office, the egg indicated 8 (see photo).
Now I now where I should wear a face mask and where I can just relax and take a deep breath of clean air.
Laser Egg itself is quite sleek, but unfortunately(or fortunately if you have an extra adapter sitting around and do not want to contribute to more waste) does not come with an adapter, but it does come with a USB cord. The fact that it has a battery is quite nice compared to other air quality monitors. Keep in mind this model only measures temperature, humidity, and PM2.5 but NOT CO2 like other similar air quality monitors.
App Setup: Was relatively easy, but they pretty much require your phone location to be on for the app to work. This was a bottleneck that I had to resolve with support, and as I use the app I continue to notice this as well.
App Usage: the app sees to be kind of finicky, as sometimes it seems like it requires me to connect to the same wifi(which kind of loses the point of an app). Currently, it gives me the last updated time of my current time, but also says "NO DATA"
Measurements: I haven't had a chance to compare to another air quality monitor, but it does seem to rise properly when I am cooking.
Quite good !
In Washington State we have had serious wildfire smoke problems this summer and fall. My egg has been a life saver with identifying air quality in order to plan my outdoor exposure. I am very satisfied!
The CO2 reading was very high and not accurate. I have tested it in many different locations (home, outside, work) and it gave the same high range everywhere. Need to read more on it, might be my house that has bad air. Still returning to test with an other
Sensors seem accurate and tells us about low CO2 when we sleep with doors closed. When the windows open up, they’re back to normal levels.
Less 1 Star because when it’s added to Homekit, Homekit says the egg has a firmware update but the app says firmware is up to date.
Humidity and temp sensors work well too, not too sure about PM2.5 but it’s one of the few ones to feature this.
Easy to set up and use
Great product- we live in China and although we have air filters in every room we wanted to see how effective they were. The laser egg was very sensitive and alerted us to when air outside was really bad or when we needed to change our filters. Also appreciated the carbon dioxide readings.
This little device is wonderful! If you care about the air you breathe or are just curious, you will find this device to be a valuable health monitor. Plus, it has an eight hour battery, so it can be portable to test the air wherever, Room to room or place to place, inside or outside. Would definitely benefit those with COPD or other respiratory issues.
Works well and seems accurate. I learned that my dryer does not affect AQ but my fry pan does. That was worth the price. So I stopped worrying about using my dryer but realized I needed an oven vent. After that I didn’t use it. Until...
...the wildfires! Holy smokes (literally). As the smoke from upstate blew in, this became critical in helping me manage air quality as we sheltered indoors.
The Laser Egg works really well from what I can tell. The air quality where I live is usually good, but I heard that it could be worse inside. I wanted to check it out and the Laser Egg seems really accurate, the readings lined up with what I found on the EPA's site.
One thing I didn't realize was the readings went up so much when I cooked, same with the TVOC... I kept my windows open last time and it really seemed to help, and I'm really glad I know about it now. I saw some reviews about connecting it to my phone, but I didn't have a problem with it at all, the app had instructions. Overall, I think the Laser Egg does the job and its accurate
It does a good job giving readings that are easy to see and read. I enjoy the temperature and humidity sensor, but biggest value for me is the TVOC monitoring. It's worth paying a little more for this one over the 2nd generation. We have young kids (and one with asthma) so it helps to keep an eye on the air.
Initially had some trouble connecting to the app, as I'd get an error message when trying to scan the Homekit code. But realized it was because I needed to connect to wifi - so double check that before trying to pair. Pretty simple setup afterward. Settings updates appear almost instantly on the device screen, and I like that I can see the air on my phone.
