Take a deep breath! Take care of clean air with Franke AQ Sense hoods

12 of December '22


Franke has introduced an innovative line of AQ Sense hoods, which automatically keeps an eye on the air quality in the kitchen. Simply install the Franke@Home app and control the hoods remotely. In addition, the app keeps you informed about the state of the air in real time. This is an extremely useful product in this day and age, where it is so important to take care of the environment and there is so much talk about ecology.

Safe home

Well-being is not only about proper nutrition or lifestyle, it's also about clean air.

After all, we don't always breathe the cleanest air outside, as well as in the space of our home. In the post-pandemic era, it is our four corners that have become the center of life. A place where comfort and safety are paramount. We are therefore paying more and more attention to combating all sorts of pollutants in the home. The answer to these expectations is the AQ Sense hood, designed by Franke. It's a groundbreaking device that takes care of the proper quality of air in the house and informs about its condition.

Air pollution is a huge problem

It is well known that various chemical, physical and biological factors have undesirable effects on our health and quality of life. Many of these pollutants are also found in domestic air.

According to various studies, Europeans spend 90% of their time indoors, where pollution levels are often higher than outdoors. That's why we are launching a unique solution that addresses this problem. Proposed by Franke Home Solutions, AQ Sense helps our customers create a friendly home space. And just like our other household appliances that help you cook in a healthy way, our new hood has a positive impact on the state of our body, as it rids the home air of unwanted agents," comments Silvia Gamberoni, Product Manager of the Franke Home Solutions hood category.

Air quality sensor

Wanting to determine the condition of home air, it is necessary to get the right tools. That's why each version of the AQ Sense hoods - vertical, slanted and flat - has a special sensor. This device monitors the presence of volatile organic compounds, ambient temperature and humidity. The sensors are equipped with AUTO mode, its selection will cause the device to turn on - when necessary, and turn off - when the air is refreshed. The function of automatic shutdown of the device at the right time, is also a guarantee of not wasting energy, saving it and reducing expenses on the ever-increasingly expensive electricity.

Franke@Home app control

Convenience in the daily use of AQ Sense is guaranteed by the Franke@Home application. Thanks to it, we can constantly monitor the quality of air in the kitchen, or control many functions of the appliance. Using a phone or tablet, we can turn it on and off, adjust the power, control the light intensity to bring the right atmosphere to the interior. The app will also independently take care of the software required for the hood to be updated on a regular basis. Extremely useful in the kitchen is the app's voice control function, especially helpful at times when we have our hands busy preparing food.

In addition, Franke@Home is compatible with virtual assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.
