Companies invest in impressively designed workplaces, yet little attention is paid to the air quality in these workspaces. So we asked ourselves: is there even a positive return on investment (ROI) in investing in good indoor air? Or rather, what are the costs of poor indoor air in offices?
Poor air quality in offices reduces performance and increases the risk of virus transmission through aerosols. This also applies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Increased CO2 concentration means more aerosols in the office. Carbon dioxide levels can be measured and reduced by good ventilation.
LoRaWAN is a promising standard for the wireless technology of the future in the Internet of Things (IoT). It is capable of covering large geographical areas even in a supra-regional network based on a battery-powered wireless system.
In busy indoor areas with poor air quality, the risk of infection by viruses and bacterial germs is particularly high. Hence the urgent current recommendations for frequent ventilation: After all, air transmission plays a major role in COVID. What exactly lies behind this postulate in terms of findings and what those responsible for home office returnees can do in concrete terms is the subject of this article.
