Whether in offices, hotels, educational institutions or hospitals: Wherever there are many people, indoor hygiene must be given top priority. However, it is not only the air quality that plays an important role, but the entire indoor climate. Aircare, an Italian project that re-designs the indoor wellbeing paradigm, starts with a new type of IoT device that monitors and evaluates room environments according to a wide range of quality criteria. Up to 15 sensors create a holistic picture of the environment: whether particulates-, CO2 or VOC concentrations, humidity, temperature, noise, light and even electro smog. Aircare is therefore not just an air measuring device but evaluates the room climate based on three essential criteria: Air quality, ambient comfort, electro smog and it can be integrated in Building Management Systems of any company. Aircare fulfils the specifications of the WELL building standard for indoor climate. With the integrated 1NCE IoT Flex SIM, Aircare is also able to communicate at any time, independent of local building networks.
2G / 3G / 4G / NB-IoT
People spend a large part of their lives in buildings. Our health and performance depend largely on the indoor climate to which we are exposed during this time. At the same time, we often pay very little attention to indoor air quality. Not only do indoor pollutants affect our health, but also factors that affect our psyche. These include light, temperature, humidity and noise. Aircare measures all these factors, makes them available on a monitoring platform or automatically controls other devices such as ventilation, heating or light.
Aircare can forward its data via Wi-Fi to the local network. But this is not always desired or possible. The installation of sensors in buildings presents manufacturers with various challenges. Spatial conditions or any safety regulations often do not allow a direct connection to the local WiFi. This also results in additional installation and maintenance costs.
Aircare, on the other hand, works completely autonomously with the 1NCE IoT Flex SIM and thus enables monitoring of the indoor climate independently of locally available network connections. With the 1NCE IoT Flat Rate 10 Euros for 10 years, Aircare is ready for long-term use and the costs are easy to calculate from the outset. With the 1NCE solution, flexibly available radio standards can be used for data transmission in over 100 countries. Regardless of 2G, 3G, 4G or NB-IoT. Protocols HTTPs and MQTT.
“With 1NCE we have found a flexible and perfectly calculable IoT-connectivity, which makes Aircare quickly ready for use even independent of available Wi-Fi, for example in buildings with high security requirements.”
