1. Wi-Fi and Blueair Friend App
With the new Wi-Fi capabilities of the Blueair 280i air purifier, it is possible to pair your Blueair air purifier to your smartphone via your home network. To do this, you will have to download the ‘Blueair Friend App’ from the App Store or Google Play to your iOS or Android smartphone. With the Blueair Friend App installed, you will be able to adjust airflow, change LED intensity, child lock the unit and activate or deactivate night mode. In addition, you are also able to check the units Wi-Fi status, monitor PM2.5, VOC levels, check the filter life indicator and turn on the auto mode. According to the Blueair 200 series manual , the set LED intensity feature, changes the LED intensity of the visible lights on the unit. The night mode allows the activation and deactivation of certain settings at specific times.

2. Sensor
The Blueair 280i sensor is exactly same sensor which is used in the ‘Blueair Aware’ air quality monitor. The sensor is different from the one used in the 270E model due to the fact it is designed to detect changes in temperature and humidity levels as well as PM2.5 and VOC’s. Blueair have stated within the ‘Blueair Friend App’ that the sensor is able to measure over ‘900 different gases ’, including Formaldehyde and Toluene which is then summarised into a single figure displayed in the app. The sensor also allows you to use the auto mode feature whereby the fan in the Blueair 280i air purifier automatically adjusts based on the level of contamination detected by the unit. For more information regarding the sensor, please check the ‘sensor’ description under the ‘features’ section

3. Airflow
The Blueair 280i has a higher level airflow rate of approximately 23% on the highest speed setting when compared to the 270E model. Blueair gives the airflow rate for the Blueair 280i as 127 m3/h on speed setting one, 237 m3/h on speed setting two and 374 m3/h on speed setting three. This is compared to 270E which has airflow rates of 100 m3/h on speed setting one, 200 m3/h on speed setting two and 288 m3/h on speed setting three. The Blueair 280i offers 5 air changes per hour based on a (26m2) room and a ceiling height of 2.4 metres.

4. Display
The Blueair 280i offers touch buttons which are hidden under a flip-up lid on top the unit. The touch buttons allow you to monitor and change various settings of the Blueair 280i. The Wi-Fi status button A), turns blue when it is connected to a Wi-Fi network and is grey when it is not connected. Button B), allows you to power the unit on/off and cycle through the three different speed settings of the unit. Button C), is the filter life indicator, this will turn orange when it is time to replace the filter. The next button on the touch display is the auto button, D), once the auto mode has been set, this will turn blue. The VOC’s, E), and PM2.5, F) buttons, will remain blue if the levels of contamination are at a low enough level and may change to orange if the levels become elevated.

5. Design and durability
The Blueair 280i has the same design as the previous model with its slim profile. The unit features a slim (21 x 17 x 8") (53 x 43 x 20cm), lightweight (10kg) and makes it easy to move around. As such, it can easily be deployed next to walls and in narrow spaces. The unit has a metal body construction, a white/grey gloss finish and has the same style Blueair units are known for.

Below is a comparison table which shows what the differences are between the Blueair 200 series range of air purifiers.

The Blueair 280i uses Blueair’s typical 'Three-Stage Progressive Filter' – a filter that resembles having several filters in one. The filter is made up out of three different levels of millions of ultra thin fibers, and with its ‘lock-in’ design, captures and retains particles. The first layers of the filter capture larger particles like pollen and dust, and the later layers capture smaller particles like bacteria and exhaust particles.

Regular air purifier filters are often thinner and consist of the same fiber size and material throughout. This leads to filters being loaded sooner and either losing efficiency or requiring to be replaced. However, the unique design of the Blueair 280i Three-Stage Progressive Filter requires you to replace the filter only twice a year.

When the filter of the Blueair 280i needs to be replaced, just open the back lid, take out the old filter and put the new one in. No screws, hooks or tools are needed and replacing the filter only takes a couple of seconds.

The Blueair 280i filters consist of non-toxic polypropylene media that is completely free of harmful triclosan fibers.
