Indoor Air Quality Monitoring (IAQ)

Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) has been understood for a long time as a building condition that results in people experiencing headaches, dry cough, dizziness, difficulty in concentrating, and other symptoms when being in a building with poor indoor air quality (IAQ).

Buildings and facilities are home to many sources of air contamination, including volatile organic compounds (from cleaning agents, furniture, and other materials), CO2, Particulate matter etc. Poor ventilation exacerbates the presence of these contaminants. These result in Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).

Not only does poor IAQ harm health and well-being, it also negatively impacts productivity of the occupants.

Digital Blanket® provides a comprehensive

  • IAQ solution that includes measurement, analysis, and correction of air-quality with its own suite of sensors as well as software.
  • The solution includes monitoring multiple or selective air quality parameters such as Temperature, Relative Humidity, CO2, TVOC, PM2.5, PM10, using Universal Edge EnviSenZ sensors,
  • It collects the air quality data in real-time.
  • This data can be reported in near real-time basis to administrators and employees on easy-to-understand intuitive dashboards.

Further, the collected air quality data can be baselined and benchmarked as per industry standards such as WELL, ASHRAE, LEED etc. In addition, IAQ ensures compliance to ESG reporting by Reduced Environment Risk.

Based upon the in-built policy, alerts can be generated on threshold breach and building systems such as HVAC, AHU, fresh air fan, exhaust fan can be triggered automatically by Digital Blanket®.

There are significant economic benefits from cleaner indoor environments. In the U.S. alone the savings and productivity gains from improved indoor environments have been estimated at $25 to $150 billion per year as per Nine Foundations of Healthy Buildings (Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health).
