Environment monitoring made easy with the Adafruit CCS811 Air Quality Sensor Breakout - VOC and eCO2

Posted by

If you're interest in measuring air quality, our new CCS811 Air Quality Sensor Breakout from Adafruit will be of interest. This is made possible by the onboard gas sensor that can detect a wide range of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and is intended for indoor air quality monitoring:

When connected to your microcontroller (running our library code) it will return a Total Volatile Organic Compound (TVOC) reading and an equivalent carbon dioxide reading (eCO2) over I2C. There is also an onboard thermistor that can be used to calculate the local ambient temperature.

That sounds like a lot, however is easy to accomplish with the supplied example code and demonstrations - so getting started is very easy.
