Using the air quality monitoring function
You can execute the Puricare Mini app and set the time to turn
on the particles sensor through the product management menu.
- Turns On with Product
- Always On: Monitor the air quality even when product
operation is suspended
• The concentration of particles could be affected by cooking or using
humidifiers, sprays or other products which generate steam or fine
• Even two products placed in the same space could measure the
concentration of particles differently due to air circulation.
• The concentration of the particles displayed may change with
environmental factors such as the presence of sofas, beds, carpets,
vacuum cleaners, humidity, smoke, bugs, pets or cooking oils.
• The PM concentration may be affected by changes in the outside
environment such as construction, heavy traffic or pollen.
• The concentration of the particles could be higher near outside
doors, windows, vents or in areas where outside air enters. Air flow
near the particles sensor may interrupt normal operation of the
particles sensor and indicated concentration may be different from
actual particles concentration, accordingly.
• Be careful as the battery may be discharged rapidly when the air
quality monitoring function is used.
• PM (particulate matter) concentration is displayed in increments of
1 unit, from 8 to 999. PM concentration values are based on the
data sheet provided by the sensor manufacturer.
• The PM concentration measurement was tested using LG
Electronics’ standard test materials.
