No, you do not need to connect your Laser Egg to a Wi-Fi network in order to monitor your air.
However, connecting your Laser Egg to a Wi-Fi network allows you to control it from your phone, change settings remotely, and access certain features. This includes:
- Display readings in different Air Quality indexes (US, China, or India)
- Display temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit
- Fetch and display local weather forecasts
- Connect to Apple HomeKit
- Connect to IFTTT
Does the Laser Egg continue to monitor even if disconnected from Wi-Fi?
Your Laser Egg will monitor your air in real-time, even if it is not connected to a Wi-Fi network.
However, connecting to the Wi-Fi allows your Laser Egg data to be sent to the cloud so you can get insights on air quality patterns inside your home.
