For years, air pollution has been a problem that hung over the heads of people dwelling in major cities around the world. Despite the calls to reduce carbon footprint and lessen the pollution with a more simple lifestyle, the problem continues to linger. The cleanliness of the air we breathe became a global crisis early last year when the Covid pandemic spread and news of its airborne characteristics caused panic among people.
Although most people are concerned about the outdoor air, most of our time is spent indoors, and not everyone is aware of the importance of the indoor air quality. While the topic of outside air pollution has been addressed, not many realize that indoor pollution can be two to fives times greater than outside. While global leaders implemented a rule to wear masks and keep a social distance from one another, a group of scientists have been hard at work to create a solution for monitoring and tracking indoor pollution levels in an effort to make indoor spaces healthier and more accessible to all.
VizAeras is a company that has made a breakthrough in the scientific realm by creating an IoT platform technology called indôr that is designed to monitor healthy building conditions (Indoor Environmental Quality or “IEQ”). Indôr is set to bring more transparency, awareness, and access to healthy building conditions, helping schools, parents, and employers create a safer, healthier, and more productive space for everyone occupying them.
“Indor’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 to respond to any potentially harmful indoor conditions in real-time in order to keep loved ones, employees, students, and customers safe, productive, and healthy,” said VizAeras co-founder and CEO, Carl Tautenhahn.
VizAeras was created when the spread of the COVID-19 virus put the world on edge, prompting people to find solutions to monitoring indoor air quality and dangerous indoor pollution levels. Indôr is the first product in the market that allows for simple remote monitoring and quick-scan QR code access for any commercial building. You can use free QR code generator to utilize Indôr. The product provides property owners with the tools necessary to detect dangerous pollutants and take action to remedy them before occupants fall ill and become less productive.
The company takes its name from the Greek phrase meaning “Visual Air” and uses a patent-pending platform technology that utilizes state-of-the-art monitoring capabilities to allow people to “visualize” healthy building conditions before entering the property. VizAeras strives to help create clean air and healthy indoor environmental quality conditions. With how the world has evolved over the past decade, the VizAeras team has been working hard to deliver more transparency and access to the critical factors that affect health and performance.
Carl Tautenhahn, CEO of VizAeras, believes that apart from exercise, monitoring nutrition and calorie intake, and quantity and quality of sleep, people should monitor their exposure to harmful pollution and air quality, indoors and outdoors.
“Just as Google mapped The Great Outdoors, I see VizAeras mapping, tracking, and monitoring The Great Indoors where we live, work, learn, heal, pray and play, essentially protecting the most valuable assets inside a building—the occupants,” he said.
Without an end in sight for the pandemic, Carl hopes that VizAeras and Indor will become a staple product in the market, becoming just as important as outlets and faucets in homes and business properties.
