Disclaimer: Cigarette detection is a beta feature only supported indoors on the Generation 3 sensors.

How does Cigarette detection work?

  1. Turn Cigarette Detection ON

  2. The sensor will enter a Calibration mode (Keep in mind that during the calibration mode you will not receive any cigarette alerts)

  3. Once the calibration period is over, Minut will start monitoring indoor air for cigarette smoke.

  4. When cigarette smoke is detected, you will get notified via a push notification on your phone and an email (if you have email alerts enabled)

Tips when using the Cigarette detection feature

  • Don't hide the sensor away on top of furniture, place the sensor on the ceiling in the middle of the room

  • Avoid placing the sensor by stoves, fireplaces

  • Avoid placing the sensor close to ventilations and ACs.

  • Avoid placing the sensor in heated & freezing indoor environments
