Crowdsourcing Mornings: ALVI Smart Furnace Filter

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites., a Toronto based tech start-up, is launching ALVI, an AI powered smart furnace filter on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. ALVI’s technology delivers cleaner air to the home, reduces energy consumption (up to $200/Year), provides insights on indoor air quality and lets you know exactly when to change your filter. ALVI is the first smart filter of its kind, which provides real-time information on air quality and takes the guesswork out of having to change the air filter. Users can order new filters automatically through the mobile app.

“We are looking to be the NEST of air filtration, it has been far too long since the furnace filter market has been disrupted” says co-founder Devin Ramphal.  ALVI uses wifi to connect to a mobile device with an app enabling individuals to check their air quality from anywhere. ALVI replaces any 1” standard filter and is compatible with SMART home devices such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, NEST and Ecobee.

CleanAir.AI was granted Arrow certification on Indiegogo. Meaning, prior to the campaign launch, ALVI went through a vetting process by Arrow engineers to validate the tech. The Arrow certification, resources and support from Arrow electronics is expected to help the company greatly on its product development and manufacturing journey.  The CleanAir.AI team has been working over the past year in bringing ALVI to life. The tech is finally ready for unveiling to the public.  CleanAir.AI is focused on developing technology that enhances the quality of life through improved air quality, connectivity and reduced energy consumption.

As of January 21st, this project has raised $16,000 of their $35,000 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise the $25,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $169, you will get one ALVI Smart Furnace.  For a pledge of $229, you will get one ALVI Smart Furnace plus three filters.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
