Temperature

There are a myriad of conflicting studies into the ideal temperature for your employees to be at their most productive and comfortable. Our temperature sensors are included as standard in every occupancy sensor, allowing you to measure the temperature over an entire office floor. We can send alerts to maintenance teams, even before employees realise there is a problem. On an entirely free-address floor why not have multiple temperature zones and let employees choose whether they want to work in warmer or cooler parts of the office. Our system can help you to manage this seamlessly.

Noise

Noise is one of the most common complaints raised by employees working in corporate office settings—especially in open office concepts where employees are situated together in a large space with little separation. But a noisy workplace is not just annoying, numerous studies have shown that too much noise in the office can seriously reduce productivity and increase stress, not to mention lowering job satisfaction and denting employee morale. Our noise sensors can measure noise and display on live floor plans areas that are quieter than others so that employees can choose to work in areas that suit their needs.

Light

Bad lighting can be detrimental to your business. Low lux levels (insufficient light) are a common cause of fatigue and muscle strain. This becomes more likely if the exposure is consistent over longer periods of time. The same is true for high lux levels (excessive light). Glare and reflected light can distract an individual and impair his or her vision. The CIBSE recommended light level for a general office is 500 Lux but for a computer workstation is 300-500 lux. Are you providing appropriate lighting? Our sensors carefully measure light levels, and produce easy to understand reports and controls so you can adjust lighting to maximise productivity and wellbeing.

Carbon Dioxide

CO2 is measured in parts per million (ppm). Studies show that concentrations for a typical occupied indoor space with good air exchange are in the 350-1,000 ppm range. Between 1,000 and 2,000 ppm, your employees may complain of drowsiness and poor air. Between 2,000 and 5,000 ppm, you may be subjecting staff to headaches, sleepiness with stagnant, stale, stuffy air that will lead to poor concentration, loss of attention, increased heart rate and nausea. Our CO2 sensors monitor your CO2 levels and send automatic alerts as soon as there is a level for concern.

Humidity

Studies have shown a statistically significant increase in respiratory infections and absenteeism among occupants of buildings in which humidity isn’t controlled adequately. Low-humidity work environments increases employee susceptibility to colds and other respiratory illnesses. For indoor air to be considered high quality, it must be properly ventilated and clean with a relative humidity of between 30 per cent and 60 per cent. This range is ideal because it is low enough for occupants to be comfortable but there is sufficient humidity to avoid problems associated with dry air. Our sensors measure, and can be used to control, building humidity.

Particulate

Airborne particles are sometimes referred to as ‘particulate matter’ or ‘PM’. They include dust, dirt, soot, smoke, and liquid droplets. Some particles are large enough or dark enough to be seen as soot or smoke, while others are so small they can only be detected individually with a microscope. Studies have linked exposure to particle pollution to a number of health problems, including respiratory illnesses (such as asthma and bronchitis) and cardiovascular disease. In addition, the chemical components of some particles, particularly combustion products, have been shown to cause cancer. During operation, photocopiers can emit toner particles, toxic gases (namely ozone and nitrogen dioxide), volatile organic compounds, semi-volatile organic compounds, particulate matter, paper particles and nano particles. This can result in high oxidative stress and systemic inflammation leading to high risk of cardiovascular diseases. Our sensors monitor particulate levels, helping you to provide a safe, clean environment for your employees.
