airSMART IAQ offers an integrated indoor air quality management system to neutralize pollutants such as mold, bacteria, allergens and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in a central air system and indoor environments. The airSMART IAQ system consists of three connected components designed to work together to eliminate pollutants and allergens from the air.
- Foobot is a tabletop air monitoring sensor from AirBoxLab U.S., San Francisco. Foobot monitors the levels of airborne contaminants including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter and CO2. A blue LED glow turns orange with a negative air quality event. Upon detection, Foobot sends information to the Lux/GEO thermostat which, in turn, puts the air system into circulation mode so the Fresh-Aire UV APCO can purify the air. Owners are also alerted to the event via the Foobot App.
- Lux/GEO is the system’s smart thermostat that receives a message from Foobot when air quality degrades. The thermostat then automatically switches the air handler fan to perform a fan cycle (independent of heating or cooling cycles) so contaminates can be neutralized through the APCO air purifier.
- Fresh-Aire UV’s APCO air purifier, the award-winning APCO system (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation), offers a combination of UV-C light and activated carbon with germ and odor reduction capabilities. Once the levels of VOC contaminants, odor causing and toxic molecules including toluene, formaldehyde, acetone and ethanol, are reduced to a safe level, the Foobot will signal the Lux/GEO to return to normal HVAC operations.
