Gas Detector in use
I came across the Anavi Gas Detector by chance and I was immediately interested in using it to monitor air quality in our living room, where we have a wood stove. I was impressed with the design and its attractive acrylic casework. I also appreciated that it was easy to assemble and get working. On the technical side, I saw that the Gas Detector can communicate over a network using MQTT. I’ve been using the open source home automation platform ioBroker which can function as an MQTT broker. I was able to connect the Gas Detector to it via an adapter called ioBroker.mqtt.

poor, an announcement is issued on the Echoes and a push message is sent to our smartphones via Pushover.
