Netatmo on Tuesday released the Healthy Home Coach, an indoor climate tracking system with support for Apple's HomeKit platform.

The Home Coach uses four sensors to track noise, humidity, air quality, and temperature. Several of them can be networked together to monitor multiple rooms.

While owners can tap a button on the device to trigger status lights, the main interface is a mobile app, which provides an at-a-glance dashboard readout. It will also make recommendations, for instance suggesting that users turn up the heat for a cold room, or turn off any humidifiers if moisture is climbing.

Netatmo hasn't specified the device's HomeKit support other than to say people can ask Siri about the state of their home. Data will also presumably show up in iOS 10's Home app, but Netatmo hasn't confirmed this or indicated that people can trigger other HomeKit devices.

The Health Home Coach is already shipping at a cost of $99, £99, or €99. It can be bought from Netatmo's website, or through various third-party retailers like Amazon and Home Depot.
