Prana Anti-Pollution Mask with the 2-way motor system
One of the biggest problems with pollution masks is that it leaves you gasping for breath, especially if you are walking or running. More so with children who are physically active.    Prana Air Junior Mask launched by Purlogic Labs is a first of its kind anti-pollution mask for children. The 2-way motor helps purify the air faster which ensures that the children do not inhale toxic elements from the air and easily releases the buildup of CO2 exhaled.

The easy to wear anti-pollution mask features a skin-friendly silicone seal that allows the mask to fit on a child’s face conveniently. It is also lightweight and has a 5-layer protective filter that traps pollen, smoke and Particulate Matter 2.5 or less. The mask also sports Grade 11 HEPA-Filter.

The mask runs on a 5-V lithium battery that lasts for 8 hours with a charging time of 1.5 to 2 hrs. Suitable for children aged 5 to 15 years. The power generating motor controls the air volume. There are 3 different fan speeds that the child can manually adjust according to the amount of air required during various physical activities.  

Pricing at Rs. 3490 is on the expensive side, in fact, that’s too high! Certainly, wish a cheaper and more affordable becomes available. Having said that product wise it is a great product considering the pollution levels in and around Delhi.

Pocket Air Pollution Monitor

Prana Air Pocket Monitor is an innovative and pocket-friendly device to check PM2.5 levels on the go. It is easily charged with a micro-USB cable and can check the air in any environment, measuring levels up to 2000 µg/m³. It will also show if the levels are safe or not to breathe according to the AQI (Air Quality Index) scale. With a 400 mAh battery, it can last for more than 4 hours with a full charge.  Pricing is at   Rs. 2990.

Overall a great product which allows you to check pollution levels on the go. On the downside, the device does tend to hang a lot!

WiFi Outdoor Camera with Motion Sensors
SecureEye recently launched their 4G WiFi outdoor camera, SIP-2HDG-W40,  with advanced tech integrations for the common users. It's easy to install with smart configurations. It is also equipped with motion detection alarm, APP remote monitoring, intelligent WiFi configurations, 24/7 monitoring capabilities. Pricing is at  Rs 12500.

The good thing about this is it's built is keeping the common consumer in mind. Easy to install physically and smooth in configuring. Technology challenged people won’t face a problem with this one. The motion detection sensors are great. On the downside, I wish it was a smaller device.
