Airthings for Business

Clean air is everyone’s business

Facility managers are getting pushed to raise the bar. Tenants, employers, parents and the community are demanding optimized spaces that improve health rather than diminish it. Furthermore, new EU legislation demands it. The difficulty is, office windows often don’t open and buildings are made air tight to keep energy costs down – meaning less fresh air. For the average office or other building to compete with new buildings with a wide range of services and amenities they will need to become smarter.

 

Dell and Intel research notes that “44% of employees worldwide feel that their workspace isn’t smart enough, while more than half (57%) expect to be working in a smart office within the next five years. And when it comes to acquiring new talent, tech matters — Millennials in particular are likely to quit a job with substandard technology.“

 

Using Indoor Air Quality monitoring systems to analyze and quantify the productivity in offices, businesses or schools allows businesses to attract and retain talent, commercial real estate companies to drive rent and occupancy rates and schools to create safe and healthy places that parents will feel confident sending their children to.


Increase employee productivity while decreasing costs.

The Solution: Monitor Indoor Air Quality

  • Analyze and quantify the productivity in offices, businesses or schools based on air quality
  • Drive rent and occupancy rates in commerical real estate
  • Create safe and nurturing spaces in schools and public spaces

Optimized Indoor Air Quality generates revenue because it is directly correlated to improved productivity.

JLL’s research on the average per-square-foot annual costs for energy, rent and staff notes that “a 2% energy efficiency improvement would result in savings of $.06 per square foot, but a 2% improvement in productivity would result in $6 per square foot through increased employee performance.“

Introducing Airthings Wave Plus and Airthings Hub.
The first complete system for remote monitoring of Radon and Indoor Air Quality. With the Airthings Dashboard, Airthings mobile app, and an API option, the solution allows facility managers, employers and key decision makers to improve wellbeing and increase productivity by easily monitoring serious indoor air pollutants. The system can adapt to every size building to bring sustainability and energy efficiency to any project at a low cost.

The facts
  • Salaries account for 90% of company operating costs whereas energy and rent only amount to around 10%.
  • Optimizing Indoor Air Quality has the potential to actually generate revenue because it is directly correlated to improved productivity.
  • Get the most out of employees and increase their happiness while also optimizing spaces for visitors, students, and customers.

What we measure

Radon is a radioactive, invisible gas that comes from the ground. It is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Due to radon’s fluctuating nature, long-term, daily monitoring is necessary.

The Airthings Ecosystem

Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, killing approximately 58 people per day in the United States. People spend 90 percent of their time indoors and because of this, Airthings believes that measuring Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is the most important step in preventing illness and improving health, while increasing productivity, and reducing energy consumption. This is why  the Airthings Ecosystem is expanding with two new products: Airthings Wave Plus and Airthings Hub. The complete system to measure Indoor Air Quality and Radon in large, populated buildings.

Cloud-to-cloud integration made easy (API)

The API from Airthings contains all commands and information you need to pull sensor and device information into your own platform–either to act on real-time values or retrieve historical information from the Airthings Cloud. A secure connection to the Airthings Cloud through the API ensures that data is only available to authorized users.

 

Our products

Airthings Wave Plus

Airthings Wave Plus is the first wirelessly connected and battery operated IAQ monitor with Radon, designed for all populated spaces. Through the Airthings Dashboard or API, users have access to interpretations of IAQ data and tips to reduce indoor air hazards, optimize ventilation and save energy. In addition, users can simply wave in front of the device to receive a color-coded visual indicator of the overall air quality.

Airthings Hub

Airthings Hub connects up to 50 battery operated devices through Airthings Smartlink, a long-range and low-power wireless data extraction technology. This allows devices to be distributed around a large building, bringing real-time IAQ data is available to users anytime, anywhere. Airthings Hub will be available with Ethernet or a cellular option. The Hub can also operate using Bluetooth while in Bluetooth range of a device (around 10 meters).

Airthings Dashboard

Quickly view, customize and analyze the sensor data from all of your devices at a glance. You’ll also have access to trends and advanced analytics. The dashboard contains two types of tiles which you can add and remove, drag and drop, and resize to customize to your particular preferences.

Setting up your Ecosystem

The placement of your Airthings Ecosystem devices depends on a number of factors. Each sensor requires a different amount of space and depends on how many walls or barriers break up the space. It is also important to consider what the building is made of to determine the range for the Airthings SmartLink, which is how your Hub will communicate with the Air Quality Monitors to push data in real-time.

Our recommendation is to have a Wave Plus unit for about every 7500 square feet (700 m squared) of open space. Keep in mind that the sensors will cover a radius around them, so placing them against outside walls, or in corners of rooms, will cover less space. When placing the Hub, it is important to consider possible obstacles for Airthings SmartLink–metal, concrete and thick walls, all reduce the range.

Who are we?

Airthings is a Norway-based tech company that develops and manufactures both professional radon equipment and consumer facing technology. These products have completely changed the way people monitor and analyze radon and other dangerous indoor air pollutants. Founded in 2008, the company’s products have made radon detection easy, accurate, and user friendly – all of which are current challenges with other solutions on the market. Airthings is on a mission to ensure people around the world take control of their Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) through simple, affordable and accurate solutions.
