There’s a common problem with air purifiers – you don’t actually know if they are working. Their manufacturers say they are but you can’t really be sure.
Step in Aura Air. Touted as an all-in-one indoor air purification and quality intelligence system, Aura filters and disinfects the air around you while vigilantly monitoring its quality in real-time.

The cleaning is done through a unique 5 stage purification process. This includes a Pre-Filter, Ray Filter (with 3 layers – HEPA, Carbon & Copper), UV LEDs and Sterionizer. The combination of these gets rid of formaldehyde, viruses, bacteria, sold, fungus, PM 2.5, PM10, VOCs and bad odour particles.
The multi-purpose device also functions as a carbon monoxide and smoke detector unit. It can detect and display info on gas leaks, carbon dioxide, VOCs, temperature, humidity, along with an on-going air quality profile.
All of the info is displayed in the accompanying smartphone app. The gadget will even let you know the air quality outside your home thanks to integration with Breezometer’s worldwide air quality index API.
When hazards are detected, Aura alerts you immediately. This ranges from real-time air quality recommendations (such as opening a window), to notifications if evacuation is required.
Best of all, Aura Air measures only 293 x 293 mm so you can hang it discreetly on the wall. From there it can monitor and clean around 65 square metres of space. You can control it manually or with voice controls. It plays nice with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
This certainly sound like the total air solution. With 26 days to go, some $174,000 has been raised on Kickstarter, many times over the rather modest $15,000 goal. If you want in, a unit will set you back $229. Backers should expect to receive their units in June.
