After months of hard work, we at Brilliant and Company are thrilled to launch our new, shiny, and brand new mobile app recently. Unlike its earlier versions, this V2.0 is redesigned from the ground up, with many bug fixes, and introduces many new features.

This mobile app complements PiCO Home and works seamlessly together to deliver users a new, revolutionary way to monitor and track the air around them in real time. Staying safe and breathing healthily become easier with PiCO Home!

So, What’s New?

1. Newly designed UX and UI

V2.0 is smooth and sleek and comes with a new feel that is slicker, easier to use, and is more friendly to touch. The turquoise blue color dominates our mobile app’s look and is consistent with our brand logo and image. Users will be able to learn about the app and sign up or sign in easily.

Scan allows users to use PiCO Home without signing up or logging in.

2. Outdoor Air, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth Modes

Perhaps, the most prominent part of this app is its ability to connect a user’s PiCO Home via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Outdoor air and two ways to connect to PiCO Home: Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

3. As a Hub

The beautiful thing about PiCO Home is you can use it as a hub. If you have multiple PiCO Homes, you can conveniently add one in every place in your home, e.g. kitchen, toilet, garage, living room, etc…all in Wi-Fi mode, and see everything easily on your phone on the mobile app. Deleting them is also easy.

4. Historical Data & Comfort Zone

The most requested feature by our users, this section shows you what the air is like in your home over the last certain of hours, divided into days for all the metrics measured. Accessing them is easy, with a simple tap on the PiCO Home that you’ve already added via Wi-Fi.

If your pointer shows you anywhere inside the comfort zone trapezium, rest assured that you’re in a healthy, optimum environment. Beware: Anywhere outside means that you’re not — the air may be too dry, too humid, too hot, too cold, has very high carbon dioxide, or unhealthy levels of VOCs.
