When a pollutant reduces your air quality, its shown as a snapshot and in a graphical form in the app. In graphical form the air quality scale/level is represented with colours running up the left-hand side. The description of these colours is below:

Take for example, PM10. The coloured bar on the left hand side of your graph indicates how much of the pollutant is present, and will continually update as the machine purifies your air.

Good/Green. When this section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your purifier is detecting a very low level of the type of pollutant.

Fair/Yellow. When this section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your purifier is detecting a moderate level of the type of pollutant.

Poor/Amber. When this section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your purifier is detecting a high level of the type of pollutant.

Very poor/Red. When this section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your purifier is detecting a very high level of the type of pollutant. In very rare circumstances you may see these other pollutant levels types:

Extremely poor/Burgundy. When this section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your purifier is detecting an extremely poor level of the type of pollutant.

Severe/Purple. When this section of the coloured bar is highlighted, your purifier is detecting a sever level of the type of pollutant.

Thanks Stuart, 

 

We just got in to AQI, would you dyson have something like this when the color chart was created?

It would be very helpful in comparing data and accuracy. thank you
