Yoctopuce Yocto - VOC
The Yocto - VOC sensor brings outdoor and indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring to Valarm, along with a host of possibilities and important use cases. Valarm plus the Yocto-VOC sensor allows you to monitor and alert upon levels of VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds. VOCs detectable by the Yocto-VOC include alcohols, aldehydes, aliphatic hydro-carbons, amines, aromatic hydro-carbons (e.g. gasoline vapors), carbon oxides, methane, LPG, ketones, and organic acids. All of these substances are seriously harmful to human health.
Valarm allows you to monitor VOCs in real-time, record data to visualize trends, and trigger alerts at configurable levels.
This sensor is used by the city government of Washington, D.C., for mobile air quality monitoring. Learn more by checking out this blog post on how we placed this VOC sensor on the rooftops of cars and vehicles on the east coast of the US!
Check out this air quality study done by placing this VOC sensor on a public transit bus roof in California. Also see this air quality study with the Valarm app in the Los Angeles, California, area to see which neighborhoods have healthier air.
Below are videos of the Valarm app measuring VOCs with this sensor around Los Angeles, California:
