 Small, but powerful.






 Emerald measures the most important air parameters,

which affects your health and life comfort.


 and it also has 4 more important features:




Mobile app

Emerald is connected to an mobile app, that provides all the data in the real-time.

      It will alarm you when some of the parameters is exceeded to be sure, 
that the air your family breath is always clean.    




Moreover, it will tell why you slept poorly or how to be more productive in the office.

 The Emerald Air App will show you changes of the parameters from the last 24 h to make a deeper analysis and provides you tips on how to improve your air quality.

  Simple, right?

Android app will be available in July.

    Quick check    


You don’t need to have your mobile always with you. You can make a quick check   of the air quality just by touching the device, to be sure that your home is clean.

If you see a green light it’s ok but a red light is an alert that something is not right.






Easy to install


       Stick emerald in any room you want to monitor by a special magnet sticker.             Select 1 of 8 room types and be sure that every room in your home is protected.



Smart air purifier.




    Why is it called smart? Airadicate is automatically switched on when Emerald alarms it about the low air quality. You will see the red light on the device case when   your air is polluted. When the air quality is good, you will see a green light turn on.




Unique technology



Airadicate kills all the viruses, bacteria and mold in the air by LED UV-C disinfection. It also filters up odors, smoke PM2.5, VOC, and allergens.




     Airadicate has built-in three advanced composite filters which have 4-stage filtration made on: preliminary filter, antiallergic filter, HEPA filter and carbon filter. 






      After the filtration air is sanitized from germs, bacteria, viruses and mold.                                          To make it happen we use advanced UV LED light.





    Airadicate has powerful built-in 120x120mm fan which has 150 m3/h airflow.



Why we created Emerald Air ?


     Every day, we take more than 20,000 breaths.

We spend up to 90% of our life indoors

where air can be 8-10 times more polluted than outside.

Today more than 300 million people suffer from asthma or allergies.


        Air pollution is responsible for 5.5 million deaths around the world each year. 

              Now you can protect your family from asthma, allergies, and sickness.





Our Journey


    For the past year, our team has been working extremely hard           interviewing customers, designing,  prototyping, coding, and testing.





       We built 7 prototypes to create the final version of our product.




We made many different tests in our lab. We compared Emerald to a $7000 Tiger VOC detector, and as you can see on the graph below lines are directly correlated, 




       Thanks to our unique algorithms Emerald is even 30% more sensitive to VOC. 



Where are we now?


    We have recently completed PVT (Production Validation Test), which involves manufacturing, assembling and testing. We’ve selected experienced manufacturing                  partners, that have built and shipped thousands of devices. 
                               Now we are ready to start mass production. 
                                       The only thing that we need is your order.



 Why Indiegogo?   


      When building a product that is focused on something so important as health,                            we didn’t want to build it hidden away somewhere in silence. 


    Your support will be the signal for us to give a green light to our manufacturers      and to make the world a better place to live in.
