Abstract

The amount of moisture in the air is represented by relative humidity (RH); an ideal level of humidity in the interior environment is between 40% and 60% at temperatures between 18° and 20° Celsius. When the RH falls below this level, the environment becomes dry, which can cause skin dryness, irritation, and discomfort at low temperatures. When the humidity level rises above 60%, a wet atmosphere develops, which encourages the growth of mold and mites. Asthma and allergy symptoms may occur as a result. Human health is harmed by excessive humidity or a lack thereof. Dehumidifiers can be used to provide an optimal level of humidity and a stable and pleasant atmosphere; certain models disinfect and purify the water, reducing the spread of bacteria. The design and implementation of a client-server indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring application are presented in this paper. The Netatmo station was used to acquire the data needed in the application. The client is an Android application that allows the user to monitor air quality over a period of their choosing. For a good monitoring process, the Netatmo modules were used to collect data from both environments (indoor: temperature (T), RH, carbon dioxide (CO2), atmospheric pressure (Pa), noise and outdoor: T and RH). The data is stored in a database, using MySQL. The Android application allows the user to view the evolution of the measured parameters in the form of graphs. Also, the paper presents a prediction model of RH using Azure Machine Learning Studio (Azure ML Studio). The model is evaluated using metrics: Mean Absolute Error (MAE), Root Mean Squared Error (RMSE), Relative Absolute Error (RAE), Relative Squared Error (RSE) and Coefficient of Determination (CoD).
