Dylos: Air quality monitoring innovation


First consumer-grade air monitor

Dylos Corporation's DC1100 Air Quality Monitor is the first monitor on the market that has been developed and tested for consumer use. Up until now, the only particulate air quality monitors available were the extremely high-priced units that were sold to hospitals, laboratories, clean room facilities, etc. The DC1100, on the other hand, was designed to meet the needs of the home or office environment at an affordable price.


While most household air quality monitors will only give “good” or “bad” as feedback on the air state, using Dylos Air Quality Monitor you can "see" these invisible particles floating in the air - the device will provide readings of both small (fine) and large (coarse) airborne particles. You will be able to tell when an appliance in your home (HVAC, vacuum, air cleaner, or any product using a filter) is not working effectively. It helps you determine when you need to change the air filters in your home and correlate any changes or actions you take with a change in air quality. The only thing missing for this unique product was a mobile app to have all the data handy and visual.

Among their key goals were:

  • Actionable insights on air quality within an intuitive interface
  • White label client-facing solution with web console and mobile apps
  • Custom widgets to match project-specific needs
  • Easy WiFi provisioning flow


Hardware: ESP32
Connectivity: WiFi

Blynk IoT platform and Blynk Studio were chosen for the easy-to-use mobile app builder and the opportunity to custom develop additional functionality on a fixed cost basis. Dylos Android and iOS apps and their branded IoT web portal went live in early 2023.

Blynk Business plan covers the full suite of IoT software for the Dylos connected air quality monitor. The main use cases include WiFi device provisioning and activation by the end-users, collecting and visualizing data with the possibility of importing or exporting to process it externally. Blynk.Edgent solution allowed setting up WiFi device activation flow without additional development. In order to make the app even more unique, some new UI elements have been developed by Blynk Studio.

The support of a dedicated launch engineer covered:

  • Setting up a dedicated business cloud server to keep "all the dots" connected and store data
  • Setting up a multi-tenant IoT system and a branded OEM portal to oversee devices, users, partners, and data
  • Custom configuration of some project-specific server setting
  • Coordination with the Blynk Studio developers on the delivery of custom functionality
  • Publishing Dylos iOS and Android mobile apps to the app stores.

Blynk allowed us to retrofit our product for IoT and build a companion mobile app without having to hire software engineers.

We were able to focus on our core business instead of trying to become experts in software and cloud development.
