Fueled by the trends of today’s lifestyles, people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors than they do outdoors, taking in over 20,000 breaths per day. Being in enclosed environments most of the time, VizAeras explained that what people breathe during the 90% of their day truly matters. And yet, many establishments often fail to measure or monitor indoor pollution levels. Hence, VizAeras has made it a mission to change what people breathe indoors.
VizAreras recently launched a campaign on StartEngine to fund an indoor environmental quality (IEQ) product that aims to bring more transparency, awareness, and access to healthy building conditions. The primary goal of the project is to help create safer, healthier, and more productive indoor spaces for occupants. The product, soon to hit the market, is called indôr. This IEQ monitor tracks indoor air quality using highly-sensitive sensors capable of measuring relative humidity, carbon dioxide levels, and microscopic particles.
“Indôr’s unique approach to monitoring IEQ provides households and business operators with the ability to not only monitor, track, and share access to healthy building conditions with occupants, but also respond to any potentially harmful indoor conditions in real-time in order to keep loved ones, employees, students, and customers safe, productive, and healthy,” explained Carl Tautenhahn, CEO of VizAeras.
To date, indôr is the only IEQ monitor available in the market that allows simple yet effective monitoring and public sharing of indoor air quality. The device, connected to a mobile app, provides people with the necessary tools to detect harmful air pollutants early on and act on them. The simplicity of the principle of indôr will definitely benefit parents, teachers, and business owners who do not want to compromise the health of the people living, learning or working inside their properties.
Because of their commitment to innovative services, VizAeras recently won the Best IoT Indoor Air Quality Monitor award at the annual IMPACT 21 digital marketing conference.
VizAeras, which stands for visual air, is known for its patent-pending platform technology and state-of-the-art monitoring utilities that allow people to visualize the air quality of certain places they are about to enter into. It gives people access to indoor air pollution levels and allows them to see particulate matter, gasses, and / or chemicals that may be present within the walls of schools, commercial spaces, homes, and more.
“In today’s world, who wouldn’t want greater transparency and access to the critical factors that affect our health and performance, or the concept of indoor pollution monitoring,” the CEO shared. “I–and about one-fourth of the adults in the United States–wear a Fitbit or other wearable fitness tracker to provide a variety of daily metrics for our health. Beyond exercise, we also monitor our nutrition and calorie intake, the quantity and quality of our sleep, and many of us monitor all kinds of threats outside our homes with front door cameras. But what about the threats inside our homes, offices, and classrooms?”
People have indeed created measures to study health and physical conditions, but very few innovators have focused on making air pollution monitoring as accessible as VizAeras has. Especially amid the pandemic, the company addressed one of the most crucial needs of people by creating a solution for mapping, tracking, and monitoring indoor environmental conditions, allowing people to prepare themselves properly before entering contained spaces. While Google mapped “The Great Outdoors”, VizAeras intends to map and track IEQ conditions for “The Great Indoors” where we live, work, learn, heal, pray, and play.
