FCC Compliance Statement (Part 15.19)
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
Warning (Part 15.21)
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
FCC Interference Statement (Part 15.105 (b))
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:
To comply with FCC/IC RF exposure limits for general population / uncontrolled exposure, the antenna(s) used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20 cm from all persons and must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
The Purple Air has been able to pick up the pollution from a near by open-air incinerator that is polluting the air with dangerous and deadly chemicals.
Can this unit be set up with a solar panel… my ring cameras operate off a solar panel… I do not have a electric plug next to the cameras…
Zeke, yes, you can use a solar panel and battery. Any power source that outputs 5V at 1A or more will work. Here is one example of such an installation: https://community.purpleair.com/t/solar-power-pole-mount/1049
I use the down load feature to get data for analysis. I found temperature and humidity have A and B sensor data, even thought there is only one sensor.
The title says it all. One disappointment is the loss of the sensor data download feature. The change broke several automated routines for fetching data to be displayed within other apps and hardware. Hopefully a new tool is developed.
Thom, thank you for your feedback. Did you know you can download data from the graph view after clicking on a sensor? Select the 'hamburger' menu to see this option. Also, we do have a new data download tool that works with the new API (data is no longer stored with thingspeak.com).

Very nice monitor, compact and easy to setup.
App works very good as well. Definitely a wise purchase although it is a bit pricey.
