When air quality is poor Birdie® will drop down until you open your windows and bring it back to life. Simple as that.
• Swiss state-of-the-art CO2-sensor technology
• Award-winning Danish design
• Made of 100% recycled plastics
Did you know that 90% of your life is spent indoors? — Very often in poor air quality, which increases the risk of asthma, headache, allergies and sleep disorders. (Just in the EU, 80 million homes are estimated to have a poor indoor climate.)
So what to do about it? Experts suggest that one of the best solutions is to simply open the windows. Health Authorities worldwide even recommend you to do it 2-3 times a day. Birdie® is a friendly reminder to a keep healthy indoor climate.
Back in the days, mine workers would bring a canary with them in the coal mine, to detect toxic gasses. When the bird fainted, it was time to get out. With a built-in CO2-sensor, Birdie® works exactly the same way - but in your home, office or classroom.
When the air quality is poor the bird will drop, until you open your windows and bring it back to life.

None — Unlike other air quality monitors, Birdie® will let you know when to ventilate your home without the use of annoying light, sound or phone notifications. Birdie® stands out by using storytelling and intuitive design as nudging mechanisms to encourage the user to take action on their indoor climate.
CO2 is a global standard for measuring indoor air quality. That’s why we have chosen a certified carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor to measure the concentration of carbon dioxide gas in your home, office or school. Even though there is a ton of particles that can be measured, we believe that monitoring the CO2-level is enough to sustain a healthy indoor climate, as most particles will correlate to CO2 and eventually benefit from opening the windows.
The rechargeable battery will last for up to 6 months and takes 4 hours to charge fully. You can also install your Birdie with the charger plugged-in, if you don’t want to think about charging it.

We spend the majority of our lives indoors in poor air quality. A huge, but invisible problem, that Hans thought was calling for a visible solution. So he looked for one and came to think of ‘the canary in the coalmine’ and the idea was born.
He immediately called his good friend, Andreas, to ask if he wanted to start a bird-company. He said yes and the two friends went on to turn the idea into reality.
After realising how expensive it was to develop, manufacture and distribute a new innovative product, they decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign to raise money. On April 5th 2022 they launched a campaign on Kickstarter raising almost $500.000 in 30 days. The two entrepreneurs were blown away by the support they received from thousands of customers in more than 63 countries from all around the world.
What began as a hobby-project, quickly turned into a full-time occupation for the two friends who are now on a mission to improve the indoor air quality in millions of homes, offices and schools around the world.
As a rule of thumb; 1 Birdie should be enough to cover a room up to 100m². We typically recommend to install the bird in the room of your home where you spend most of your time. If you have multiple floors or closed-off rooms (a bedroom) we suggest 1 Birdie each floor/closed-off room. We recommend you to install the bird in a height of 1,5-2,5m.
Birdie comes with a wall-mount to make it as easy as possible to hang up with 1 screw.
No. Birdie® will not disturb you with sounds.
Birdie drops when the level of CO2 is higher than 1.000 ppm for more than 10 minutes. When the level of CO2 drops below 800 ppm again the Birdie will return to standing position.
Battery time is up to 8 months with regular usage.
Birdie charges with a simple USB C-cable (included with the product). Charging time is approximately 3,5 hours
It's very important to get airflow when you ventilate your home - you can get optimal airflow by opening multiple windows at once. Danish Health Authorities recommend ventilating for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times a day. Something that is very easy to forget to do. Birdie® will remind you when to ventilate.
