Monitor indoor air quality with the wireless Air Quality Sensor
February 6, 2019
Develco Products is now launching the Air Quality Sensor, which detects VOCs and monitors indoor air quality. With this wireless air quality device, you can ensure that the indoor air is clean and healthy.
The importance of indoor air quality
Today, most people spend around 90% of their time indoors, in either the home or the office, and therefore, indoor air quality is critical for good health. Unlike outdoor air, indoor air is recycled continuously causing it to trap and increase the concentration of compounds that may affect human health, work performance, and comfort.
The impact of VOCs
Indoor air quality is impacted by the concentration of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are carbon-containing organic chemicals present in indoor air. VOCs come from various sources including building materials, paint, glues, furnishings, tobacco smoking, as well as people and their activities.
Some VOCs can cause short- and long-term adverse health effects. The short-term effects include eye, nose and throat irritation, shortness of breath, nausea, headaches, and skin problems. Long-term exposure to high concentrations of VOCs may cause irritation of the lungs, and damage to the kidney, liver, or central nervous system. VOC emissions can especially affect those with existing medical conditions such as asthma.
Wireless monitoring of indoor air quality
With Develco Products’ new Air Quality Sensor, your customers will be able to monitor indoor air quality. The wireless Air Quality Sensor continuously monitors VOC levels, offering users insight into the indoor air quality in the room where the sensor is placed. The VOC sensor features VOC, humidity and temperature reporting, and it is easy to integrate into IoT solutions.
The wireless Air Quality Sensor is essential to ensuring the best indoor air quality possible.
