  • Publication number: 20160282151
    Abstract: Described is an apparatus comprising: a housing with an opening; a gas sensor positioned within the housing and displaced from an edge of the opening such that the gas sensor is not directly underneath the opening, the gas sensor operable to sense gas; and a device positioned within the housing, and operable to generate an electromechanical induced air movement such that gas is exchanged between the opening and the gas sensor. A machine-readable media is provided having machine executable instructions, that when executed cause one or more processors to perform an operation comprising: determining information associated to airflow to cause a gas sensor to sense gas, wherein the gas sensor is positioned within a housing and displaced from an edge of the opening such that the gas sensor is not directly underneath the opening; and sending the determined information to an apparatus having the gas sensor.
