Awair Outdoor FAQ

What does AQI represent?

Air Quality Index (AQI PM2.5) represents the level of air pollution. The higher the AQI value, the greater the level of air pollution. The AQI values range across 6 levels from Good to Hazardous. Please refer to for more AQI details from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

How does Awair collect the outdoor AQI values?

The outdoor AQI values shown in the Awair AQI Map are calculated from the PM2.5 values based on information provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, AQICN, or PurpleAir outdoor sensor network.

What do the numbers mean in the Awair Map?

The Awair Map gives you a quick glance at the neighborhood averages and outdoor air. The number on the top is the outdoor AQI in your area and the bottom one represents the indoor neighborhood average. Please note that your data is only visible to you and all neighborhood averages are anonymized. 

Can I opt-out from the Outdoor feature?

You can opt-out at anytime by deleting the location data in your Awair Home settings. To learn more about how to set/remove location data, please refer to this article: How to set your Awair Home's location
