Air pollution is caused by chemical, physical, or biological components alters the fundamental properties of the atmosphere, and contaminates the interior or outdoor settings. With the rapid industrialization activity in recent years, there is an urgent need to monitor air quality. The proposed research provides a mechanism for monitoring air pollution in indoor and outdoor environments. The system consists of an IoT-based Arduino device. The Arduino IDE connects the Temperature and Humidity sensor, Grove light sensor, and air quality sensor to measure the air pollutants such as Carbon dioxide CO2, Nitrogen oxide (NOx), and Particulate Matter PM2.5. The sensors work efficiently and provide qualitative findings from the environment when they are exposed to CO2, gasoline, solvents, thinner, formaldehyde, and other harmful chemicals. The Wi-Fi module of the Blues Wireless Notehub is used for secure data routing to the IoT cloud. The Air Quality Index (AQI) measures provide information on whether there is something unsafe in indoor and outdoor environments. For collecting and analyzing the device data, the Notecard is intended to be used with a cloud storage service. Also, the indoor fire detector identifies the incident of fire intimates the users through the alarm, and measures the indoor pollutant at that time. The proposed smart IoT product model would be an excellent device for air quality monitoring because of its long-term consistency and low electricity consumption.
