We’re thrilled to welcome Airly, our newest user of The People’s Network! Airly is dedicated to making air quality visible and understandable by all by building a single source of truth for global air quality data with sensors that keep tabs on conditions in real-time.

Airly believes that every citizen has the right to breathe clean air. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 91% of people are exposed to and frequently breathe harmful and polluted air. To mitigate air pollution and subsequent dangers from toxic respiration, Airly uses advanced data science technology and AI-based algorithms to provide access to accurate, hyper-local data about air pollution in communities worldwide.

The founders of Airly met 8 years ago while studying together at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland. During this time, they were training for a marathon and Krakow has a history of poor air quality. They realized there was no way to obtain accurate and real-time data on Krakow’s air quality to determine the best time to train. So, they developed a sensor that could be placed throughout the city, and Airly was born.

Airly devices and the Airly air quality mapping application allow citizens, businesses, and governments to identify the locations and concentrations of dangerous airborne emissions capable of harming human health and the environment. Airly’s sensors are roughly the size of an iPhone, and only take a few minutes to install with a screwdriver. This means they can be placed almost anywhere, and an entire network of sensors could provide continuous, accurate, real-time data for a city.

Historically, Airly used a combination of GSM and WiFi, but knew that using LoRaWAN technology allowed them independence from smartphones and expensive data plans. That’s when Airly discovered The People’s Network.

“We’re incredibly excited about the potential this partnership brings. We needed an IoT network with reach and scalability. Helium’s LoRaWAN technology allows us to scale our reach while being independent of data providers to continue growing the number of active sensors globally without added costs. We see The People’s Network as the future of connectivity and are proud to be a partner in its global growth.” — Wiktor Warchałowski, CEO of Airly

With coverage from The People’s Network and collaboration with Helium, Airly is able to provide the data and tools necessary to inform and alert the public of unseen dangers lurking in the air and around homes and businesses. In addition, Airly is able to make their data more readily accessible to anyone in an intuitive format for free via their mobile application and online map.

This year has proven that human and environmental health must be prioritized and protected from harmful air quality and emissions, especially as the fires ravaged our home base state of California. Air quality monitoring on The People’s Network has been a huge priority for the Helium team and solutions such as these can have a lasting impact on millions of people. We’re looking forward to continuing our growth together and are excited Airly selected The People’s Network to help inform local communities about exposure to dangerous air quality caused by wildfires and smog.
