PlanetWatch is a company that incentivizes environmental monitoring so residents can deploy and manage sensors in a fast and cost-effective way.

Whether in the home or in the office, everyone should be able to live and breathe easier by accessing their air data.

Tracking the Invisible Factors
For PlanetWatch members and others new to Awair Element, the device shows indoor air data in real-time. The five invisible environmental factors measured include temperature, humidity, CO2, TVOCs, and PM2.5. With the Awair Home App, you can access your air data from anywhere, even if you leave the house to run an errand. Tips appear in your notifications when air quality factors are deteriorating to show you how to improve your numbers. Oftentimes, it can be as simple as opening a window or door to improve the ventilation. With more people working from home than ever before, Awair Element provides peace of mind. Personalized insights and air data trends help to track your progress in maintaining a healthy indoor environment.
If you are working in an office space, you might want to check out Awair Omni. This device measures the same five factors as Awair Element, but also tracks two other environmental factors: noise and light. As employees return, they can feel safer by knowing what the indoor air quality looks like now and in the future. Contact our Sales team today with any questions.

Investing in Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has never been more important or more top-of-mind than than it is in 2021. Over the past year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recognized indoor air quality as a way to evaluate the safety of physical spaces, causing most corporations and individual homeowners to look at IAQ for maybe the first time. The EPA is now also providing guidance about the importance of indoor air quality in schools.
In offices and schools, irritating noise can come from all kinds of sources: air conditioning, ringing phones, traffic, nearby construction and – most especially – from other people’s conversations. Ambient noise can make it hard for employees and school children to concentrate and get things done. Productivity can plummet Noise can affect the health and productivity of your workspace. Based on a study by Cornell University, increased illness and lower job satisfaction are associated with the negative impact of noise. Although background noise can drown out distractions, too much noise can cause stress and undermine short term memory, reading comprehension, and willingness to help or engage with others.
