Indoor air quality monitoring has attracted increasing attention with the rapid development of industrialization and urbanization in the modern society as people typically spend more than 80% of their time in indoor environments. A novel indoor air quality detector (IAQD) integrated with multiple communication interfaces has been designed, built, programmed deployed and tested in order to meet the requirements of wide variety of scenarios. The IAQD measures the indoor air quality data, including temperature, humidity, CO2, dust and formaldehyde timely. With state-of-the-art Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, the IAQD is integrated with Modbus, LoRa, WiFi, GPRS and NB-IoT communication interfaces, which enables to be applied to wired communications, short-range wireless communications, and remote transmission to the cloud. The designed software in cloud allows users to track the indoor air quality of their home or office or industries everywhere. The performance IAQD is evaluated in terms of packet loss rate and time delay. The evaluation of IAQD are demonstrated and analyzed within the office environment over a week. Experimental results show that the proposed system is effectiveness in measuring the air-quality status and provide excellent consistency and stability.
