It measures up to five ambient metrics using Swiss-made sensors, to help reduce air pollution and improve health.
According to the World Health Organization (1) ambient and household air pollution is the largest environmental risk to health, accounting for the premature deaths of 6.5 million people worldwide each year and about 600 000 premature deaths in the WHO European Region.
Monitor and improve air quality for better health
Therefore, monitoring and improving air quality to reduce air pollution can bring real health benefits such as reducing the number of premature deaths and diseases from heart disease, lung cancer, stroke as well as chronic and acute respiratory diseases, including asthma.
It is against this background that Terabee has added the Air Quality SB5 sensor to its product range. The product features Swiss-made sensors from Sensirion, a leader in the field of air quality monitoring, with more than 20 years experience developing and manufacturing sensor solutions.
“Now, more than ever, to protect both our health and our environment, it is critical to measure and improve the quality of air we breathe. The Terabee Air Quality SB5 brings an unrivaled level of features and performance in a compact, well-designed form,” says Max Ruffo, CEO of Terabee.
“Terabee Air Quality SB5 embeds a high level of data communication security for the peace of mind of the end-users.”
The indoor Air Quality SB5 adds to Terabee’s existing portfolio. Monitoring air quality and occupation metrics, in Smart Offices and Smart Buildings, helps to drive high standards and user experience from both comfort and productivity perspectives.
Measures the five most in demand air quality metrics
Terabee Air Quality SB5 measures the five most in demand ambient metrics in buildings, as it simultaneously gathers data on:
- Carbon dioxide concentration (CO2)
- Total Particulate Matter (PM 1, 2.5, 4, 10)
- Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) Index
- Air temperature (°C and °F)
- Relative humidity
It provides secured access to air quality metrics over the network. Via WiFi and a HTTP/HTTPS data protocol, data can be directly integrated into systems without needing a subscription.
Easy to install, accurate monitoring
The Terabee Air Quality SB5 is easy to install and to deploy in public facilities and Smart Buildings. With its real-time LED indicator, building occupants can immediately see air quality and decide how best to adjust temperature and ventilation systems to improve the quality of the air.
Having accurate air quality metrics means that building and facility managers can optimize the energy performance of their building by programming the ventilation and using it only when needed.
The Terabee SB5 is cost-effective, with no other Air Quality devices on the market providing the same level of performance and features.
