    OPEN SOURCE AIR PURIFIER

    My intent was for it to be used as an alarm, both as an audible alarm and a push notification on the user's phone which notifies the user to ventilate the area. If CO levels get really high the system could send a notification to the user's neighbor. I know this sounds extreme. However, CO poisoning is potentially lethal. In my home city, A man used an indoor coal fire system with minimal ventilation. The result of high CO from the combustion of coal was detrimental. The man nearly died and ended up with severe brain damage. I agree that implementing this could be challenging but the assurance it provides is well worth it for many.

    I would suggest adding a carbon monoxide sensor. Carbon monoxide poisoning is because quite dangerous and is on the rise these days. In addition to this, I would add IOT functionality. Given that the ESP8266 is so cheap, it seems like including it wouldn't hurt. Not only that, you would be able to monitor the environment of the room from anywhere in the world. Quite useful for people looking after the young or elderly.
