Air is vital to all living beings. It is the basic necessity that sustains life on this planet. Everybody has a right to breathe pure air. However, the population explosion and fast-paced urbanization have worsened the air quality over the last few decades. This decline in the air quality has left people around the globe gasping for breath. Therefore, there is an emerging need for efficient air quality management practices.

An Air Quality Management System is a comprehensive scheme of abating air pollution. It includes the effective monitoring of the parameters that impact and steer the air quality of an environment (indoor or outdoor). Monitoring is instrumental in identifying the chief pollutants in that environment, and thus, in chalking out a precise and holistic management plan to combat air pollution. Hence, air quality monitoring becomes the prime factor that enables us to breathe fresh and pure air.

Common air pollutants that render the air surrounding us unbreathable are particulate matter (PM), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs). However, some parameters that drive the indoor and outdoor air differ from each other due to the difference in the sources of the pollutants. Thus, the permissible limits for air pollutants are also different for indoor and outdoor environments. These standards may also vary or can be relaxed depending on factors, such as country, availability of sources, etc. 

We identified the key air quality parameters that are in sync with those set by LEED, WELL, and ASHRAE. Our Air Quality Monitor keeps tab over multiple air quality determinants like Temperature, Humidity, PM10, PM2.5, PM1, CO2, Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs), Formaldehyde (HCHO), and CO. Our range of monitors are also equipped for measuring toxic gases like NO2, SO2, O3, and H2S. The users can obtain the air quality data in real-time!
