Unmasking the risks of indoor air quality

Environmental Sensors: safeguarding indoor spaces

Interest in indoor air quality significantly increased during the COVID pandemic and has continued to be an important focus. Although there is not a global standard to determine and define what constitutes clean indoor air, it is globally agreed upon that maintaining good indoor air quality is a priority especially for health and comfort.


of Americans’ time is spent indoors


more air pollutants indoors; compared to outdoors


of buildings have poor air quality


In the US, poor air quality is responsible for more than 125 million lost school days and 10 million lost work days each year


Common uses of air sensor technology

As indoor air sensor technology evolves and is more widely incorporated in equipment, appliances and other devices that measure, record or display the concentration of certain pollutants or environmental conditions, the management of indoor air quality is improved.

Activation of Safety Devices

Activation of Safety Devices

Such as carbon monoxide alarms and smoke detectors when concentrations of carbon monoxide or components of smoke reach levels that indicate the potential for immediate danger to life.

Detecting Airborne Pollutant Concentrations

Detecting Airborne Pollutant Concentrations

Such as levels of a targeted pollutant or microscopic particles of solid or liquid materials suspended in air, i.e., particulate matter (PM).

Optimizing Energy Efficiency & Cost Savings

Optimizing Energy Efficiency & Cost Savings

By continuously monitoring HVAC systems and performing preventative maintenance, which can significantly reduce energy consumption while maintaining optimal indoor air quality.

Triggering an Action

Triggering an Action

In equipment, appliances, or other devices such as turning on an air purifier when pollutant concentrations or environmental conditions exceed a pre-defined level.

How poor air quality impacts us

Global efforts to improve indoor air quality

United States

Several billion dollars in federal funds allocated to improve indoor air quality


90,000 CO2 sensors were installed in 48,000 classrooms across Quebec


Created a “ventilation plan” and is working to place CO2 meters in every public room

United Kingdom

300,000 CO2 monitors have been purchased by schools


Investing 500 million euros to improve ventilation systems

South Korea

Classrooms are equipped with air purifiers including CO2 monitors
