in any infrastructure. The result is a better understanding and more
thorough assessment of exposure.
The use of Io T devices does away with configuration and calibration
required when using industry reference instruments as well as complicated installation, maintenance, and operation of the system. Furthermore, there is a reduction in overhead as a result of lower cost per
units, making Io T devices a fraction of the price of industrial reference instruments. What is more, Io T solutions generate new sources
of revenue with value-added services. Consequently, indoor air quality monitoring is financially feasible at room level in any infrastructure. Companies that adapt to these technological advancements are
in a better position to grow, profit, and stay in business. The result is
a win-win case for both the buyer and the seller.
But even with such advancements, few sensors produce reliable
enough data to be used in studies or by regulations. In comparison to
static monitoring, continuous monitoring enhances high temporal-spa-tial resolution and variability of air pollution, which so far has been
challenging to address. These characteristics, the level of accuracy
and the precision of the measurements, are the distinguishing characteristics of indoor air quality monitors on the market.
Continuous indoor air quality monitoring in any infrastructure that
maintains the integrity of accuracy and precision of measurements,
and produces never before seen information and analytics results in
better working spaces, everywhere in the world.
Airthinx, Inc., based out of Irvine, California, and powered by the
Netronix Io T platform, which ensures security and reliability, recently
launched it’s Indoor Air Quality monitoring solution. The solution
offers continuous monitoring of air quality in real time at room level
in any infrastructure, including commercial buildings, workspaces,
schools, healthcare facilities, and residences. With the implementation of an Io T-based solution, the portable, lightweight device is
designed to measure air quality data with the level of precision and
accuracy of industry reference instruments, at a fraction of the cost.
Airthinx measures a comprehensive set of IAQ pollutants including
particles (PM 1, PM 2. 5, and PM 10 ), gas (VOCs, CO2, and CH2O)
and environmental conditions which affect how pollution forms and
lingers (temperature, humidity, and pressure). The innovative solution can be customized to measure any additional parameters. Data is
securely uploaded from the cloud to a fully hosted web application,
empowering users with access to information on a user-friendly interface, in any location.
As a further testament to its revolutionary DNA, Airthinx adopts the
TaaS business model, offering enterprises the opportunity to generate
revenue from the sale of the device and service, making it affordable
for the buyer, profit generating for the seller, and marking a historical
moment in the democratization of air quality data.
