Having healthy and humid air inside a home is something too many take for granted. It’s also something that’s easily overlooked; unless dry air is causing a problem for infants or those with allergies, it’s likely an out-of-sight, out-of-mind problem. Habitat, however, has taken pride in taking this into account and developed a revolutionary product that can help owners keep constant tabs on humidity levels inside their homes. One of the ways that Habitat went about solving this problem was incorporating a water-level sensor that delivers real-time information to the owner of the humidifier. In this article, we’ll offer a bit more insight on that sensor and hopefully show consumers why picking this smart humidifier over other options on the market will pay off in the long run.
In short, a smart humidifier is one that performs two duties. The first is that it adds moisture to the air in your home and ensures that it isn’t overly dry. Sickness thrives in dry air and germs can rapidly spread, which can make life unpleasant for those with allergies. The other key aspect of the Habitat humidifier is that it’s “smart.” In other words, you can communicate with it via a smartphone app and know exactly what’s going on at home. The aforementioned water level sensor is a critical component of both the monitoring aspects and performance.
According to WebMD, dry air is a seemingly innocuous problem that can cause a slew of health risks. “Cold, dry air pulls moisture from your mouth and nose, leaving your nasal passages dried out and your throat dry,” WebMD states. “Dry nostrils are more likely to crack and give you a nosebleed.” The article goes on to advocate the use of a humidifier to combat these conditions, as these appliances add humidity to dry air and “will help keep your skin, mouth, and nose lubricated, and helps prevent those nasty static shocks.”
An insufficient water level impedes humidity levels from achieving the perfect balance. Dirty or old water inside your humidifier can contribute to unhealthy air. Through a patented and innovative design that takes advantage of water level sensor data, Habitat users can receive -- from their humidifier -- real-time information about the freshness of water in the tank. Owners of a Habitat humidifier can then stay ahead of the curve and keep their tank filled with clean water, which makes it easier to achieve healthy indoor humidity levels. There’s little doubt that the technology making “smart” homes possible is only going to proliferate from here. In our opinion, the ability to use your smartphone to access information from your humidifier’s water level sensor certainly qualifies as “smart” tech.
