Amazon unveils Alexa-enabled air quality sensor

Amazon has unveiled an Alexa-enabled air quality sensor.

The $70 monitor alerts you to a range of harmful allergens and dust in your home. It can also pick up on the presence of carbon dioxide, and has built-in temperature and humidity controls.

If it identifies a problem, users will get an alert from Alexa.

It is available for preorder and is expected to start shipping next month.

Amazon notes the monitor is "not a substitute for a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm, and is not certified as a CO alarm or detector."
