Its creator explains more about the open source ndoor air quality monitor hardware :
LiV Pi Orangepi Edition is a handmade, open source indoor air quality monitor. LiV Pi measures CO2 levels, temperature, humidity and air pressure. LiV Pi started as a Raspberry Pi project. Now LiV runs on Orangepi. Open acrylic case by unscrewing the four screws on top of the device. Insert CR2032 battery into RTC module. Make sure all modules are properly connected to LiV sensor board. Re-assemble the case.
