The Blueair Friend app informs you about air quality and what you can do to improve the air you breathe.

Use the app to remotely control your connected Blueair air purifiers and stay in control of your indoor air at all times.
The app reports air quality registered by your products’ sensors in real time, and traces your indoor air quality over time in intuitive graphs.
The app also let you set custom notifications to stay informed when particles and gases thresholds are exceeded.
You can also program your air purifiers fan speed and light behavior to certain times and days of the week.
Via the app, you can also setup your connected Blueair products on 3rd party smart home services supported in your country.

The Blueair Friend app tracks air quality outdoors at your position, or any place worldwide. The dominating pollutants in outdoor air are monitored down to a single city block and updated hourly: AQI (EPA index), particles (PM2.5, PM10), nitrogen dioxide (NO2,) sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and ozone (O3). The color coded heatmap gives you a fast overview of the air quality outdoors.

Not User Friendly

I have never encountered an app that is so counterintuitive! It has no explanations how to set up functions and have to contact them to see why it didn’t work. Filling out the form is another trial because it won’t submit and does not tell you what needs fixing. Every line is filled but it goes nowhere. I get on chat and again bland general statements. I insisted on step by Step explanation to try to understand the error. Oh- so many details were left out of the set up of the function. This is really frustrating. Still have other questions but then chat was dropped!

Hi There,
We are terribly sorry to hear this. Please send us an email to and we would be happy to figure out what is going on with the app.
You may want to try deleting the app from your phone and re-installing onto your phone as sometimes this will help get rid of any bugs the app may be experiencing.

Rediculous non functioning app

I purchased the blue air unit to the tune of $800 because it gives air quality readings . The app configurations do not work despite one hour on the phone with Blue Air only to be told that there must be something wrong with my iphone. Really guys I’ve never had a problem before downloading this app , how about the app doesn’t work properly even with tech support on the other end of the phone giving instructions , talk about unaccountability and passing the blame to consumers for a faulty app . I will be returning this product for one that gives readings and costs far less than this product. And last but not least the network that this app insists one connect to is an unsecured network and leaves one open to interception and I was more than willing to do so to get this units readings . This unit isn’t silent on the third level it’s very loud, the
Purpose is to clean the air and although the first setting is hardly audible , the advantage to higher settings is to remove vocs that are present without seeing the readings on an app by just smelling them .
Wish I’d paid attention to the other reviews before wasted 4 hours of my time with this tech issue and more importantly the waisted time / effort in now returning the unit. Good luck if you bought this product .

Hi There,
Please know that we have recently updated our app and some of the bugs from the previous version have been cleaned up and fixed. You can always reach out to us directly at if you still are having continued issues and decided to keep the air purifier. We are very sorry for the poor experience and for the lack of information given to you by one of our reps!

Great when works. App needs some additional short-cut buttons.

Had some difficulties when first connecting my Blueair 480i with the app. After many failed attempts, I tried connecting using different devices(iPhone, iPad etc.)and finally got it to work using my wife’s iPhone. I thought I had a faulty unit and was on the verge of returning it for a new unit. After using it for a week, I noticed that to activate the ‘auto’ mode, I had to cycle through the fan settings. It would be nice if there was a dedicated button for ‘auto’ mode. Other than that, I am very VERY happy with my Blueair air purifier and app combination. Nothing beats the Blueair when you compare it on all the important factors: performance, low noise and convenience.
