'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor with a 4th Generation Echo Dot

With times the way they are, an air quality monitor can be an intrinsic part of your smart home environment and, potentially, your health. The Amazon Smart Air Quality Monitor with a 4th Generation Echo Dot just went on sale for $61 as part of a Prime Day 2022 lightning deal to fulfill this want.

Many people have bought air purifiers and air quality monitors since 2020 for home use. Amazon has created this Smart Air Quality monitor that helps users track particulate matter (PM), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), humidity, and temperature through the Alexa app on their mobile devices. Complete with notifications when poor air quality is detected, you can set alerts to come to your phone or be announced on Echo devices around the home.

The smart aspect of this air quality monitor also lets you enable routines with other Alexa-connected devices with the app, so you could, for example, turn on a fan when the temperature reaches 76F or turn on a dehumidifier when the humidity goes up.

With the Echo device included in this bundle, you can ask Alexa to tell you the current indoor air quality, and you can assign different monitors to different rooms for better monitoring.
