If you're willing to be a little bit technical, get a Ubiquiti NanoHD. You'll still need a router, but you can use any that you have lying...

The name doesn't exactly inspire confidence: Laika died in her capsule. What were they thinking?

Make sure that you read this before buying the Aqara sensors:...

I have one. The trick to opening the lid is to press the button on the edge towards the handle. Works pretty reliably. Not obvious though.

The homebrew stuff works, but you need to use a tonne of it.

With a third party device handler, yes. But the Xiaomi devices don't do proper ZigBee, so it's not 100% and there can be side effects.

Seriously look into whole house filtration. Works wonders for my asthma.

Get a whole house purifier that creates positive air pressure. That can make a big difference to dust levels in the house.
