Have you ever wondered about the quality of the air you are living in? Poor air can impair our health, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, eye, nose and throat infections and can aggravate allergies and asthma. To protect our health and preserve our quality of life, indoor air quality is fundamental. Foobot is an advanced data processing smart monitor, helping you to take control of your indoor air quality, either by working with other home automation devices, or simply by giving you detailed knowledge of something which is effectively invisible. By scanning your environment day and night and learning from your habits, Foobot will provide you with warnings and actionable advice to keep your air in the home fresh and pollutionfree. It constantly measures VOCs, PM2.5s, CO2, temperature and humidity, and logs them in fi ve minute intervals to fi nd the best solution for air quality needs. Foobot uses internal sensors to check for pollution in the form of chemicals and particulate matter, which are up to fi ve times more common indoors as a result of confi nement and alerts you via its companion app and the LEDs on the device itself. It is easy to use and helps you keep an eye on your health at home. It is the perfect addition to any smart home. https://foobot.io/ Sustainable building envelope specialist, Schueco UK, has introduced the ASS 70.HI DE, a new lift-and-slide door that Schueco originally introduced into the UK in 2010. This new Schueco system retains the basic profi le depth of 70mm, but offers an ultra-slimline confi guration with central meeting stiles that measure just 48 mm. The result is that the fully glazed doors deliver the clearest possible views, whilst still maintaining the maximum door height of 3m. Other improvements include vent weights of up to 300 kg (and a special design up to 400 kg) with a maximum glass thickness of 48mm. In order to deliver maximum design fl exibility, the ASS 70.HI DE comes in a wide range of colours and if required, the inside and outside frames can be specifi ed in contrasting colours. Similarly, a range of opening types based on a double track confi guration makes the doors suitable for almost any commercial or domestic project. The fi nal noteworthy benefi t of the Design Edition door is that it is equipped with two-component insulating bars; these have been developed specifi cally for door leaves that are subject to marked differences in temperature between the outer and inner profi le components. www.schueco.co.uk A clear view outside Five water options: One stunning tap Zip has introduced its newest addition to the Hydrotap design range. The new All-in-One Celsius Arc tap delivers fi ve water options from just one tap. Whether you want fi ltered chilled, fi ltered boiling water or fi ltered sparkling water, the All-in-One tap will dispense it instantly. According to Zip, its fi ltration system is 25 times better than a water fi lter jug, and means that you will no longer have to keep bottles of water in your fridge, thus decluttering your fridge and your kitchen from mixer taps, kettles and bottles of water. Russell Owens, Zip’s marketing director, said: “Never before have we been able to offer a fi ve-in-one tap that looks this good. Having worked closely with the design community, including design and retail specifi ers, we were able to gain insight into exactly what consumers are looking for. The new HydroTap All-in-One Celsius Arc is the result of overwhelming demand for a product that delivers all fi ve water types in an elegant design.” The All-in-One is available in 12 different fi nishes, so whether you like rose gold, gunmetal grey or platinum, there is a colour to suit every home. www.zipwater.co.uk Abode has launched Matt Black, a new on-trend ‘interior designer look’ fi nish to its Harmonie range of bathroom taps and showers, enabling the consumer to have that fully co-ordinated bathroom look.
