Can you think of an indoor pot that waters the plant itself and also purifies the sir around? But it does exist. Kickstarter is funding NATEDE -an indoor air purifier pot. Taking care of the environment and people you love is important in this fast pacing world. Pure environment sustainability is a question that everyone should strive for and thus this is a small step by the company Clairy.

Need of NATEDE

WHO organization has listed indoor air pollution as a dangerous threat to our health. These threats are known as VOC’s Volatile Organic Compounds which are ammonia, xylene, benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, PM 2.5 etc.

There are many sources pollutants at the office and home like smoke, indoor cooking, dust, pet panders, sprays etc. These have a very bad effect leading to many health problems like allergies, asthma, dizziness, and headaches. Therefore a need for an indoor air cleaner came into existence which led to the discovery of NATEDE.

NATEDE provides you a better and healthy life along with, better health, better sleep, increased productivity and peace of mind. What else more you need in the home?

What is NATEDE

NATEDE is a smart and natural air purifier which can be controlled by a smartphone app. Along with thinking about nature, NATEDE is a most beautiful design object that you can have around in office or home. It focuses on eliminating 93% of VOCs, 99% of bacteria, viruses, fine particulates, and odors with its new photocatalytic filter that never needs replacing.

The device has 5 sensors with a dedicated app to control and monitor air pollutants and air flow. You can also measure the temperature and humidity of the room while finding out what might be lurking unseen in the air.

The NATEDE’s fan carries air through the roots of the plant causing the purification process to take place and also features on self-watering the plant which keeps the plant watered for about a month.

How does it work?

NATEDE combines Phytoremediation with a filtration process called photocatalysis The photocatalysis process is where NATEDE’s filter takes in light energy and zaps all kinds of nasty air pollutants and turns them into harmless substances instead.  The mobile app connects to your home or office WiFi so you can manage it from anywhere.  It features also Bluetooth, which makes the first connection and setup much easier. It shows real-time monitoring of the IAQ (Internal Air Quality), the frequency changes depending on the IAQ levels.

When NATEDE detects high levels of pollutants in the air, its app will send a notification and it will ask for information on your activity to better understand your habits and tailor the experience to your needs.

The core technology is phytoremediation where the natural power of common plants to clear toxins from air. This study was conducted by NASA in the 80’s and implemented by Clairy with 3 years of research at PNAT and LINV the neurological laboratories.

The best part is NATEDE can connect to other smart home devices like Alexa and Google Home which will report the air quality and manage voice commands.

Thus NATEDE is designed with a sustainable future in mind. With due respect to the environment, NATEDE at every point tries to save the environment and helps in developing a greener planet again
