Radon
Airthings Sensor Gray Radon-1 Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that kills approximately 58 people a day in the US alone. It is emitted naturally through the breakdown of uranium underground and seeps into classrooms through cracks in the building's foundation, where it can rise to unhealthy levels.
Radon
Airthings Sensor Gray Radon-1 More than 70,000 classrooms in the US have high short-term radon levels.
Radon
Airthings Sensor Gray Radon-1 As warm air rises and escapes it causes a suction that pulls in new air to replace it, which brings in potentially dangerous radon gas.

IAQ
Airthings Sensor Gray CO2-1 Every time we breathe out, we emit carbon dioxide (CO₂). When a classroom is full of active students, the CO₂ levels rise extremely quickly, which can lead to drowsiness, poor decision making, low concentration spans and low productivity.
IAQ
Airthings Sensor Gray CO2-1 More and more buildings are sealed airtight to meet environmental targets. Many ventilation systems recycle air to conserve energy. This results in high CO2 concentrations and poor IAQ, which have been directly correlated to low productivity, high sick leave and infectious disease transmission.
IAQ
IAQ According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), indoor air pollution is responsible for 2.7% of the burden of disease globally. To put that figure into context, it means that 1.4 million people are dying each year because of illnesses caused by poor IAQ.

For every one degree Fahrenheit increase above average temperature, there is a corresponding performance drop of 1%. At higher temperatures, students’ learning capacity is negatively affected.

The most important lesson when it comes to indoor air quality

You provide students with highly trained faculty and the necessary resources to learn – so why not provide an optimal classroom environment? Monitoring IAQ data allows your students and staff to flourish in an ideal learning environment.

Airthings API

Easily access device and sensor data through the REST API or subscribe with the Webhook. We never lock away data in proprietary protocols or closed systems, which allows use of sensor data in an existing BI solution or as an input to a BAS or BMS.

Airthings HBS Wave Plus

The first wirelessly connected and battery-operated IAQ monitor with radon, designed for all populated spaces. Simply wave in front of the device to receive a color-coded visual indication of the overall air quality. 

The Airthings ecosystem, Wave Plus devices connected to a HBS Hub which passes data to the dashboard and API

Airthings Dashboard

As an alternative to the API or Webhook, the Airthings Dashboard provides a quick and easy solution to view, compare and export data for your particular needs. Originally created for consumers, the Airthings Dashboard is effortless to navigate and includes additional features exclusive to business users.

Airthings HBS Hub

Connect up to 30 battery-operated devices through Airthings SmartLink, a long-range and low-power wireless data extraction technology. This allows devices to be distributed around your classrooms and spaces, meaning real-time IAQ data is available to users anytime, anywhere.

FAQ

How often /on what frequency do I receive data from the HBS Wave Plus device?

The Airthings HBS Wave Plus device samples air every 5 minutes. In order to save battery, the device sleeps for 5 minutes and wakes up again to send a sample package to the HBS Hub.

What is the battery life of an HBS Wave Plus device?

2 x AA Lithium batteries provide an estimated 2 year battery life for the HBS Wave Plus.

Can I use the data in other systems?

Yes. The Airthings REST API or Webhook offers a secure and straightforward method for pulling sensor and device information into your own system.

Can I integrate the Airthings data to my existing BAS or BMS?

Yes. The Airthings API contains all commands and information needed to pull sensor and device information into your existing BI solution or as an input into your BAS or BMS.

Can I generate a report to share measurement data and analysis with parents and teachers at the school?

Yes. The Airthings Pro Dashboard contains an IAQ reporting feature, allowing you to export to PDF and share your IAQ data in a professional, yet easy to understand method.

Do the sensors have to be calibrated?

No, Airthings sensors are factory calibrated and self-calibrate during use. The drift is within our stated measurement margin of error.

What is the range of the Hub and the Wave Plus?

The range depends on the building, but we use low frequency radio which has a very long range and can penetrate thick walls. As a guide, a Hub’s range can reach 1-2 floors up and down, and go through roughly 10 light non-load bearing walls per floor.

Do I need an electrician or a building automation engineer to install?

No. The Airthings Healthy Building Solution is specifically designed to be a plug and play, wireless, battery operated solution. Magnetic mounting brackets and screws or 3M Command Strips make installation effortless.
