Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a term describing the air quality of a building; especially it refers to the health and comfort of building occupants. It refers to the nature of the conditioned air that circulates throughout space/area, where we work and live in. IAQ can be affected by microbial contaminants (mold, fungus) which largely depend on temperature and humidity condition of a room and gaseous pollutants (including CO, CO2, VOC (volatile organic compounds). These pollutants can induce adverse health effects to building occupants. To avoid such adverse effects, an air quality monitoring system is utmost required.
iQunet developed a patent pending battery operated wireless solution for indoor air quality monitoring. The proposed solution is based on our sensors that measure the environmental parameters like temperature, humidity or gaseous pollutants to determine the environmental health of an indoor space and gives environmental information as input for controlling HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems in a Smart Building.
Even more, e.g. with iQunet vibration sensors, the HVAC system itself can be monitored. Giving unprecedented possibilities for maintenance and service, far before any problem may arise.
