Nobody likes a wiseacre, but a certain indoor air quality device just got smarter. Airthinx’s cloud-based sensor technology provides a solution for continuous, long-term real-time monitoring of indoor air quality (IAQ). The company’s Internet of Things (IoT) device packages nine built-in sensors (PM 1, PM 2.5, PM 10, CO2, CH2O, VOCs, Temperature, Humidity, & Pressure) that measure air quality with industrial accuracy at a low cost.

The company claims that, in the US, people spend an average of 21 hours inside, and the quality of indoor air has a significant impact on their health and productivity. Exposure to indoor pollutants like microscopic dust particles (PM 1) lodging deep in the lungs and blood, CO2, formaldehyde, VOCs, and mold, trigger asthma, allergies, and respiratory diseases, posing a dangerous health risk.

The solution enables quick deployment of devices in commercial, retail & residential buildings with simple, affordable integration into any built environment. The results are better health, wellness, comfort, energy & performance in buildings, hospitals, schools, homes, hotels, and even airplanes.

The Airthinx IAQ solution is developed by Netronix’s IoT platform (netronix.io). With immediate data access on a phone or the web and sophisticated text or email alerts, decision-makers can anticipate needs, react accordingly, optimize building performance, reduce maintenance & operational costs, implement energy efficient systems, improve occupant comfort, and grow business in the long run.
