iqvia sensor platform collects and displays allergy, asthma and disease
information (based on a U.S. ZIP code) from IQVIA.
Data measured includes:
- Indices for allergies, asthma and cold/flu indices
- Current outlook
Adding IQVIA to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:
If the above My button doesn’t work, you can also perform the following steps manually:
Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
In the sidebar, select Settings.
From the configuration menu, select Devices & Services.
In the bottom right, select the Add Integration button.
From the list, search and select IQVIA.
Follow the instructions on screen to complete the setup.
Understanding the Indices
Any index-related sensor will have a value between 0.0 and 12.0. The values map to the following human-friendly ratings:
|0.0 - 2.4||Low|
|2.5 - 4.8||Low/Medium|
|4.9 - 7.2||Medium|
|7.3 - 9.6||Medium/High|
|9.7 - 12.0||High|
Understanding Asthma Allergens
Several asthma-related sensors carry information regarding the top three “asthma allergens” (i.e., irritants that may exacerbate asthma symptoms). Example values include:
|Particulate (<= 2.5 μm)||PM2.5||EPA: Particulate Matter (PM) Pollution|
|Particulate (<= 10 μm)||PM10||EPA: Particulate Matter (PM) Pollution|
|Ozone||O||EPA: Ozone Pollution|
|Sulpher Dioxide||SO2||EPA: Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Pollution|
|Carbon Monoxide||CO||EPA: Carbon Monoxide (CO) Pollution in Outdoor Air|
