Beagle is a sensor that can make your home healthier

Is your home as healthy as it can be? Install Beagle and you’ll find out.

It’s a smart sensor that analyses things like air quality, humidity, air pressure, noise and light levels. Get these wrong, and you could suffer from headaches, migraines, poor sleep quality and general ill health. It’s especially important now winter is drawing in, and we spend more time indoors.

It comes in different versions, each with a specific sensing task. Stick a humidity Beagle in your basement, for example, and it’ll keep a lookout for leaks and mould. Put an air quality beagle in the lounge, and it’ll tell you if the CO2 levels are wrong (which could be why you’re getting headaches).

You can stack them together to get more insights. Put light, noise and temperature Beagles in your bedroom, and you can learn how to optimise it for the perfect sleeping environment.

Each Beagle communicates with the base station over Bluetooth, and they’re magnetic, so you can stick them on the fridge. Each has a different colour band and icon, so you know which is a temperature one and which a noise sensor. They take two AAA batteries, and it should be a year before they need replacing.

It’s raised about $13,000 of a $65,000 goal, with 29 days to go. One base station and two sensors of your choice will set you back $69 (£46) on an early bird. If successful, it’ll ship in May.
