Snepo Air Quality Sensor
ABOUT AIR QUALITY
To understand why Snepo is working on low cost open source air quality sensors, here is a small explanatory video. We hope this explains a little more about the importance of air quality and why we all have the right to clean air.

START WITH HARDWARE
When building a sensor, hardware is the physical device including the protective "housing". We use the term hardware as a way to distinguish the electronic circuitry and components of the system from the software program (firmware) you load to give it some data processing ability.
The list of parts you need.
CONTINUE WITH FIRMWARE
Firmware, which is added at the time of manufacturing, is used to run user programs on the device and can be thought of as the software that tells the hardware what to do.
To build your sensor, you can follow these steps.
First Tip : Download Arduino Software.
Second Tip : You can download "Atom".
Atom is a free and open-source text and source code editor for macOS, Linux, and Microsoft Windows with support for plug-ins written in Node.js, and embedded Git Control, developed by GitHub.
You also need to download the platformIO package to get a great IDE arduino.
