My Story

 

A few years ago I began to suffer from severe headaches, upset stomachs, sinus infections, clogged nose, and other ailments too numerous to mention. I wanted to know why. So, I visited doctors in several states to find answers. No one seemed to know what was wrong with me. I was poked, prodded, scanned, had x-rays taken, and analyzed all to no effect. I asked myself many times, “What is wrong with me?” After some time of investigation I laid everything out to a doctor highly respected in my community. He looked me over, checked my chart and came up with a diagnosis of allergic reactions to smells. He simplified it just for me. I laughed and exited his office with hope there may be something to this diagnosis, but a bit skeptical.

 

A few days later I started my quest for knowledge about these things. I talked to my brother and sister-in-law about it. She was having some of  the same symptoms. My smart (his adjective) older brother said I needed to look into hydro-carbons. He said I would find my answers there. So I began my quest for hydro-carbon knowledge. The more I studied the chemistry behind them the more I understood their corresponding relationship to allergies. As much as I hate to admit it, once again, my older brother was right.

 

What I have learned

  •   Carbon forms are found in all organic matter, living and dead.

  •   Carbon based material is found in all sorts of things around us, such as:

    • building materials

    • household cleaners

    • makeup 

    • perfumes

    • computers

    • printers 

    • toiletries

    • furniture

    • home crafts

    • paint

    • adhesives

    • turpentine

    • solvents and cleaners,  just to name a few

  •  All carbons decay producing Hydro-carbons that are released into the air as microscopic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

  •  VOCs may produce allergic reactions in some people.

  •  High concentrations of VOCs can cause severe reactions that may cause headaches, loss of concentration, vomiting, loss of consciousness, seizures, and even death.

  •  Concentrations of indoor VOCs are found to be ten times higher than outdoors.

  •  The twelve most common carbon pollutants are as high as 5 times larger in homes than outdoors.

  •  Temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure affect levels of VOCs.

The question I then needed to answer was; How do I know if I have air pollution in my home, work place and other places of indoor activities?

 

As luck would have it, I talked to a friend, Carl Belnap an electrical engineer and President of Design Criteria, Inc., who was developing innovative Internet of Things (IoT) products. After lengthy talks and much research it was decided to produce an indoor air pollution monitoring device. This innovative device detects indoor VOCs,  CO2 (Carbon Dioxide), Temperature, Humidity and Barometric Pressure (TCTHB) levels indoors and reports them via device color change.  Thus the iSeeAir-Chameleon and iSeeAir-RSS were born.

With the help of iSeeAir-Chameleon I can tell, before I begin to feel its wrath, when indoor air pollution begins its dastardly deeds. I can take action immediately to mitigate its affects on my health. What the Chameleon doesn't do is cure anything, but helps mitigate potential problems with early warnings. It certainly blesses my life. I now breathe differently.
