Air quality management

Boosting workplace productivity and maintaining the value of building infrastructure by managing air quality.

Air quality management

Our surroundings impact our productivity and ability to concentrate. Stale air and stuffy rooms adversely affect performance and productivity. One way to improve workplace performance is to constantly monitor the indoor climate. IoT-based applications help track interior environmental parameters and improve working conditions in offices.

Monitoring the indoor climate is also the key to preventing mold, pinpointing sources of pollution, and bringing down energy costs. Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems account for around 40% of the power consumed in commercial buildings, so these savings can be considerable.

The benefits of air quality management


Comfort, convenience, and satisfaction

The system detects and eliminates poor air conditions automatically. Employees are sure to appreciate the improved air quality.


Better insights

Workplace temperature, CO₂ levels and other parameters may be tracked with an array of connected sensors and systems. This information affords facility managers insight into the air quality, so they can take swift action.

Energy efficiency

Air quality data can also improve buildings’ energy efficiency – for example, if it is used to power up heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems only when their services are actually needed.


Active control

The insights gained by measuring and analyzing specific parameters such as humidity, temperature, and volatile organic compounds reveal where mold is likely to form, so building managers can take preventive measures. This also serves to spot and eliminate sources of potential particulate matter pollution.

Good air quality attainable with IoT solutions

A host of factors and systems has a hand in determining air quality, which is why efforts to improve it are most likely to succeed when the approach is holistic. A networked array, with sensors and data sources connected to the various vendors’ control systems, can provide all the information facility managers need to improve air quality. This connected monitoring array can track the following:

  • Room temperature
  • CO₂ levels
  • Air humidity
  • Volatile organic compounds
  • Particulate matter

Setting up a system to monitor the conditions in rooms and buildings is easy. It does not take much effort to install sensors in a building. Dashboards and apps visualize their data. Facility managers can also receive notifications, alerts, and recommendations to further improve their systems on demand. And with that, they can always keep track of the air quality in their buildings.
