Additionally, poor indoor air quality has become a more significant issue than ever before. It lacks proper monitoring and, with time, can affect the human cardiovascular system and intensify various respiratory conditions. Therefore, the need for both air quality monitoring and well-connected smoke alarms demonstrate the demand for innovation in these areas.
