Teldat’s customizable IoT solution helps maintain the best air quality and minimizes energy waste and Covid-19 spread in crowded indoor spaces
The pandemic of Covid-19 has clearly shown that air-borne diseases spread at a tremendous speed – this is especially true in our current model of urban society, where density of people per square meter is high.
Daily commuting to job, enterprises sites concentrating their workers in offices, students in packed rooms from kindergarten to schools to universities are all situations where a lot of people occupy a quite limited space. But not only work- or study-related activities show such high density: also, in our free time we tend to gather and go to cinemas, theatres or museums, busy gyms, crowded sports halls, or restaurants.
Covid-19 and other similar diseases travel often as aerosols when we breathe. When a person talks, shouts, sneezes of coughs aerosols are created. In enclosed spaces, these particles can remain suspended in the air for hours. To reduce the spread of viruses, it is necessary to renovate the air in those spaces, and remove the “used”, CO2-loaded air we produce.
As most usually this ventilation is obtained by keeping windows open continuously, the energy consumption skyrockets trying to keep the target temperature that was set in the heating and air conditioning systems. This extra usage of energy brings additionally a negative effect on the environment.
Ventilation must be done at the precise moments when the CO2 levels indicate it. To monitor the efficiency of indoor ventilation, avoid contagions and reduce energy waste, CO2 meters need be installed, as the information obtained of their measurements, combined with specific room data, provides indication to ventilate the room.
Be.Air is designed with the principles of easy deployment and high quality in mind, all within one compact solution.
State-of-the-art technology based on the principle of photoacoustic detection allows be.Air sensors with an ultra-small size and high performance, while advanced signal processing ensures high precision and low noise.
The sensor is located inside the IoT gateway thanks to its small size. In addition, each sensor has an action range of up to 250 m3.
The solution’s brain is a robust, compact, “Made in Germany” automated IoT gateway, which sends the data captured by the sensor to the cloud, where the be.Air platform resides, through 4G/LTE connectivity thanks to the eSIM in the IoT gateway.
As the IoT gateway can be wall-mounted easily, installation is both fast, discrete, and very efficient.
The cloud-based platform provides then reports and intuitive data via app; customization of user profiles and air quality parameters thresholds are possible, offering a situation-specific solution for each use case.
