Dustroid Smart

The Dustroid Smart is an air particulate monitoring device specially developed to monitor ambient dust particles. The Dustroid Smart is a compact and connected optical particle counter which offers near real-time particulate matter count. The easy to install and the requirement for minimal space for deployment make it a scalable solution to create a dense network of data points. The Smart version is specially designed for creating a quality sensor network for crucial applications like Smart Cities, Roadside monitoring, Tunnel monitoring.

Globally 25% of urban ambient air pollution is from particulate matter. Particulate matter is one of the most harmful pollutants. It causes several health hazards such as non-fatal heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, aggravated asthma, decreased lung function. Monitoring in tunnels enable ventilation fans automation, roadside monitoring enables the city authorities to identify the impact of vehicular emissions on the total PM generation of the city. Other activities like coal and charcoal burning also play a major role in increased levels of particulate matter. In order to mitigate the dust levels, it is necessary to identify the exact sources of dust pollution and apply necessary mitigation strategies.

Dustroid Smart – dust monitoring device measures all the PM parameters like PM1, PM2.5, PM10, PM100, Temperature, and Humidity. The Dustroid Smart is technologically equipped to offer higher accuracy with features, humidity correction for Particulate monitoring, Auto device firmware updates, Anti-static inlet to avoid loss of particulate during sampling, and remote calibration capabilities

Our intelligent optical particle counter can transmit data through various data communication modules such as GSM, WiFi, LORA, etc. The data is transmitted to the Oizom cloud in near real-time. Additionally, it has an inbuilt memory backup to ensure no data loss in case of network failure. The collected data can be visualized on the Oizom IoT Terminal in the form of real-time dashboards, automated reports, and smart alerts. The data can also be accessible through Rest APIs for integration into 3rd party software and automated dust suppression.

These are the external modules that can be attached to the Dustroid Smart. Please note that the external modules do not come as a part of standard offerings. You can order it separately or include it while purchasing the Dustroid Smart – dust monitoring device. Please speak with our expert team to choose the right accessories as per your application.


Our sensing technology works on proven working principles such as Optical Particle Counting, Laser Scattering, Semiconductor, and Optical Measurement. As a part of our proprietary ‘Micro Active Sampling’ (e-breathing technology), we also have a sophisticated suction-and-exhaust system for air sample collection and monitoring inside a controlled environment. This isolates the effect of the external environment on measurement to achieve 13% higher accuracy than the industry standards.

Laser Scattering – The sensor emits a laser beam to diffract through the air sample collected in the equipment. So, the intensity of the beam scattered from the particles provides particle size distribution and concentration data.

Data Accessibility

Dust Data Monitored by Dustroid Lite is accessible using the Air Quality Software. The platform has essential features such as

Dust Data Overview

Micro-analysis Dashboard

Historical Data Analytics

Dust Quality Report

Smart Alerts

Historical Data-set Download

Dust Data is also accessible using secured HTTP/MQTT APIs. Using the APIS, the data can be published on Public Display, Smart TVs, Websites (using widget), and Mobile Apps.

Thus, by building conditional algorithms and logic on the realtime dust data, automated dust suppression is possible.
