While we all love to make Electronics projects just for the fun of building something new, it’s hard to argue against the fact that function really does make a good project so much better. This is why we simply love awesome project packs and kits like the Particle Argon Air Quality Monitor Kit, which is designed to help you learn and understand the exciting world of IoT Development, while also building a cool, functional project that offers genuine benefits around the home or office. This not only lets you develop your electronics skills, but also lets you learn some cool new IoT skills as well, while simultaneously helping you maintain a healthier, happier environment to work, prototype or experiment in.

In terms of the contents of this cool project pack, the Particle Argon Air Quality Kit comes with a whole range of handy and exciting goodies, including three different air quality related sensors, an OLED Display module, a WiFi Antenna, a LiPo Battery, as well as some specialised Grove Series cables with a handy Grove Adapter Board for connecting it all together. These are designed to be as easy as possible for newbies and veterans alike, as the Grove Series style means that you can simply plug everything in with ease, without any soldering or wire twisting necessary. The included adapter board is specially built to accommodate all of the different Modules included with the kit, while the handy battery means that your project can even be portable too!

When looking at the actual parts included with this kit, the most exciting parts are certainly the Particle Argon Board, as well as the Barometer, the Dust Sensor and the general Air Quality Sensor. These are the main parts of the kit responsible for monitoring and reporting the air quality variables, while the remaining parts simply help to power and connect everything together. And of course, because all of the included modules are designed to the Grove Series standard, they simply need to be plugged into the right ports and provided with power via the USB cable or LiPo Battery. This awesome level of functionality, coupled with one of the easiest assemblies that we’ve experienced so far, makes the Particle Air Quality Sensor Kit one of the best IoT Kits to learn from as you create your very own project that adds functionality, convenience and a little bit of extra fun to your life at home or at the office.

Please Note: The information in the table below is focused more toward this actual kit, and if you would like a proper rundown of all the key features and functionality of the Argon board, check out our original Particle Argon Description, which focuses primarily on the board and all of the cool bells & whistles that it offers.

Particle Argon Air Quality Monitor Kit

Particle Argon Air Quality Monitor Kit

Particle is a comprehensive Internet of Things platform that is scalable, easy to use and secure, which was started as a Kickstarter campaign in as early as 2013. It was founded with the intent to make IoT easy and accessible for everyone, and by many people’s standards they have successfully achieved that, with over 70,000 engineers in over 170 countries utilising the Particle platform – including several Fortune 500 companies.

One of the recent utilisations of the potential of Particle tools is how it was implemented to connect a vital water-valve to the internet, allowing it to monitor the weather, identify the incoming Hurricane Irma, and prepare to move the water to where it needed to go – before the rain had even begun to fall in the area. This is just one of the many amazing examples of how Particle IoT can benefit more than just businesses or developers, as well as how Particle’s vision of IoT being integrated into almost everything – both online and offline – is quickly becoming a reality.
