Minimise the transmission of viruses 

Research has indicated the link between poor air quality and the transmission of viruses. As more people return to the office, measuring the health of your office buildings will become critical to ensure indoor air quality levels (IAQ) do not exceed the threshold benchmarks that would increase the likelihood of viruses spreading.

OpenSensors - How IAQ can increase the spread of viruses

How clean is the air in your office building?

We know there are a number of variables that can contribute to the transmission rate and survivability of viruses, such as Occupancy, Temperature (°C), Humidity (RH), Carbon Emissions (CO2) and Particulate Matter (PM).
 
PM2.5 has been shown to be highly dangerous in relation to COVID19. An increase of 1 microgram per cubic metre (µg/m3) can result in a 8% increase in COVID19 mortality.
 
Long term exposure to pollution can put individuals at higher risk if they contract the virus.

The impact of high occupancy and CO2 levels the spread of viruses

As larger groups of people inhabit indoor space, CO2 levels rises and building ventilation is required to bring fresh air back into the building. If CO2 levels rise above 600ppm not only will employees feel lethargic but also be at higher risk.
 
Environmental sensors
Data gathered from air quality and occupancy sensors allow organisations to:
  • Identify trends in air quality throughout the day
  • Draw connections between IAQ and employee behaviour
  • Optimise HVAC systems to ventilate spaces as necessary
  • React quickly to sudden changes and ensure ‘hot spots’ can be identified and avoided

How to monitor indoor air quality

Environmental sensors are a low cost solution to gather data on the health of your office buildings to optimise systems, support energy and cost efficiencies in the workplace.
  • What data is capturedTemperature, CO2, Humidity, Particulates and Noise levels
  • Anonymous data - No personal or health information of an individual is captured. GDPR compliant
  • Monitor the health of buildings and air quality throughout the day to ensure fresh air is circulated efficiently
  • Placement - Discretely placed on ceilings or on the wall

Make data driven evidence based decisions

Data from environmental sensors are transmitted to our powerful analytics engine that works seamlessly behind the scenes, to give you access to insights on demand anywhere, anytime to:
  • Quickly get automated reports on IAQ levels and adjust ventilations as necessary
  • Efficiently assess and validate the health of office buildings
  • Influence strategic decision making with key stakeholders
Recommended indoor air quality benchmarks
  • Temperature: 21°C
  • Humidity: 40-60%
  • CO2: 500-600ppm
  • PM2.5: <10 micrograms per cubic metre
