The Services are designed to recognize devices in your home or office and collect information about those devices to display the information to you so that you can better understand your indoor environment.

For instance, if you connect an indoor environmental quality (“IEQ”) sensor as part of the Network, the IEQ data (along with other information such as applicable room, device name and location) will be transmitted and displayed to you via the Network. Some information the Network collects from your sensors and displays for you include temperature, relative humidity as well as air quality conditions such as Particulate Matter 10, Particulate Matter 2.5, carbon dioxide and total volatile organic compounds, and your water filter flow.
