Way again in 2015 we coated the launch of the Atmotube, a small, modern, transportable air high quality monitor which went on to obtain a variety of awards after its CES debut.
Since rebranding as ATMO, the corporate, co-founded by Vera Kozyr, is now launching the Atmocube, an indoor air high quality monitoring system for companies and enterprises. This new product is positioned way more for the post-COVID period, the place air high quality inside offices goes to be important, and this time, as an alternative of being small and transportable (though that earlier product continues to be bought), the Atmocube will probably be distinguished and visual so as to give workplace staff peace of thoughts that their air high quality is nice.
The key to that is measuring CO2 ranges, which the Atmocube shows on its display screen together with different metrics.
The device has up to 14 sensors measuring varied environmental parameters reminiscent of CO2, formaldehyde, PM1 (small airborne particles), PM2.5, ozone, and others, and different environmental parameters reminiscent of relative humidity, temperature, atmospheric stress, ambient noise, and light-weight ranges.
The firm says this new device additionally calculates the Airborne Virus Transmission Score — based mostly on the degrees of particulate matter, humidity and CO2, and says it comes up with a “score” that estimates the likelihood of transferring virus ailments in closed areas. Obviously, that’s most likely one thing that would want unbiased testing to confirm, however it’s the case that the WHO advises that COVID-19 will be transmitted in poorly ventilated and/or crowded indoor settings.
Kozyr mentioned: “Air pollution is dangerous because it can affect you and your health even if you don’t notice it. We aim to help people know what they’re breathing and make changes as a result. As businesses return to the office, they need a tool to make information about indoor air quality transparent and accessible to their employees. Most air quality monitors are designed to be hidden away, so we set out to create a device with a more transparent interface that would highlight HVAC performance safety and create trust between occupants and building owners”.
ATMO is under no circumstances the one participant within the area after all, because it’s joined by AirIssues, Awair Omni and Kaiterra.
