Integrations / Connection guides / Airthings


Airthings offers devices used for radon and indoor air quality monitoring. We provide a custom endpoint which can be used together with their webhook integration.


The goal is to set up an integration between a Airthings device and Blockbax.

  1. Blockbax project
  2. Access to the Airthings dashboard
Steps to connect a device

Before you can connect your device you will first need to setup an ‘Inbound Connector’ in Blockbax.

  1. Open the Blockbax web app and go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Inbound Connectors’.
  2. Press the ‘+’ icon or ‘Create Inbound connector’ button.
  3. Select the Airthings template under ‘Airthings’ -> ‘Default’ and press ‘Save changes’.
  4. The ‘Endpoint’ will be needed later for the configuration on the Digital Matter side.

To set up the integration from the side of Airthings perform the following steps:

  1. Login to the Airthings dashboard

  2. Go to ‘Integrations’ -> ‘Webhooks’ and click on ‘New Webhook’, choose a name and configure the webhook according to the table below:

    field value
    Url Your inbound connector endpoint that you noted during the preparation
    HTTP header key Authorization
    HTTP header value Your Blockbax access key starting with ApiKey
  3. Set ‘Enable’ to on.

The inbound connector will automatically map the data coming from Airthings to ingestion IDs. Below is a list of available metrics by their external ID:

Type External ID
Number radonShortTermAvg
Number humidity
Number temp
Number co2
Number pressure
Number tvoc
Number light
Number rssi
Number batteryPercentage
Number virusRisk
Number mold

You can test if everything works by opening the Blockbax web app, creating a subject type with the previously mentioned metric external IDs and a subject with the device serial number as the subject external ID.
