Will my FreshAir1 detect when a neighbor is smoking?
Probably not. The FreshAir1 detects specific molecules in tobacco smoke and marijuana smoke in an indoor area of approximately 500 square feet. FreshAir devices are not designed to detect smoke from other rooms or outdoors.
The molecules that a FreshAir1 detects are not associated with the trademark smells when someone is smoking in another room or outside. The human nose is very sensitive, and you may be able to smell smoke that has diffused and does not contain concentrations of specific molecules for reliable detection.
If you believe you are being exposed to second-hand smoke from outside of your room or unit, we suggest contacting your hotel or property manager about the suspected smoking.
