Will Humidity Affect Reads on Air Quality Monitors?

For the official air quality monitors, according to the company that makes the official BAM monitors, if relative humidity gets above 35%, the official machines will heat their air samples so that relative humidity gets to 35% or below.

For the home air quality monitors like Laser Egg or Dylos, we need to take account humidity. For example, if you use a Dylos particle counter, when humidity was 80%, 600 particles equated to less than 20 micrograms.
