High levels of Co2 can influence how you feel. High levels of CO.. are deadly.
Wake up refreshed
If your bedroom has a high CO2 levels at night, this may cause headaches.
Make it smart
Automatically open a window when CO2 levels get too high.
Works without any connection
It shows its measurements on the built-in screen.
Can generate fake data
Generate data that looks like levels are holding steady.
Why can this sensor generate fake data?
The CO2 levels in your home go up if more people are present. This means the CO2 sensor can also be used as a people counter.
Young adults should be able to bring over friends, or a date, without this being immediately readable to the parents. We believe this is vital to healthy social development.
Sometimes a smart home can measure too much.

Creating the sensor
Connect the CO2 sensor
Connect its TX (Transmit) pin to signal pin 5, and connect its RX (Receive) pin to signal pin 6. Its Vin pin can be connected to any VCC pin. It's GND pin can be connected to any GND pin.
Connect the OLED screen
Connect SDA (Signal Data) to signal pin A4 and SCK (Signal Clock) to signal pin A5.
Plug in the RF-Nano Arduino
Plug the RF-Nano into its socket. The USB connector should be on the outside of the main board.
