View: understanding the measurements

Understand your current measurements, measurement trends, black notification dots, color dots and more!

Updated over a week ago

When your View has been successfully set up, you will be able to view current measurements on the display of the View monitor and measurement trends in the app and online dashboard.

1. Current measurements

On the display:

You are able to configure 2 sensors to be shown on the display of your View monitor. The display will show the latest measurement taken for the relevant sensors:

If 1 of the sensors breaches a threshold (changes from "good" air quality to "fair" or "poor") black notification dots will appear at the top of the display to notify you of this:


Wave across the screen to see which sensors have breached the recommended levels. A yellow or red light will appear on your View to indicate whether the levels are "fair" or "poor". See here for sensor threshold information.

In the app:

You will see a list of your monitors from the home screen of your Airthings app.

1) You will want to select the drop-down icon next to your View Plus device.

2) From this screen, you can see all the latest values, the 24h averages, the 7d averages, and the 30d averages for all of your sensors. You can adjust the period you are looking at by selecting a different time interval on the top bar.

In the dashboard:

The online dashboard is what we recommend for users who want to dig into more detail! You can access the dashboard in 2 ways:

  1. Select the "View in Web Dashboard" option from the Airthings App to see the mobile version of the dashboard. It shows your current measurements and you can scroll down to see measurement trends over different periods of time with timestamps.

  2. Access https://dashboard.airthings.com/ on a PC to get the full value out of the web dashboard. Here you can see current measurements, timestamps, past measurement segments, trends in air quality data over different periods of time, download your data, and customize your account.

In the dashboard:

In the dashboard, you can select to view specific periods of time by choosing the dates from the calendar in the dashboard. The dashboard also provides the timestamps of samples taken by the monitor.
