With the spread of Covid-19 in recent years more and more attention has been paid to the importance of air quality both in rooms where a lot of people are constantly staying, and at home. To help to maintain safety and comfort indoors, LMT has created the smart air quality and smoke sensor ELPO. Unlike other similar devices on the market, the LMT smart sensor is the only one that functions on a cellular network and does not require a Wi-Fi connection.
The smart sensor ELPO measures the air quality in the room, temperature, humidity and functions according to the traffic light principle: green colour confirms good air quality, yellow indicates the need to ventilate the room, and red warns of poor air quality and an urgent need for ventilation.
Likewise, the sensor warns of smoke and the presence of carbon monoxide, in which case it sends a message to the user and other contacts specified by the user – family members, neighbours, house manager or any other number whose user can quickly check the accommodation during the owner's absence.
"Indoor air quality affects work productivity and sleep quality, and fresh air is important for maintaining good health. This sensor is a useful tool for everyone, but especially for people who stay indoors for long periods of time, for families with small children or people with medical indications where air quality is important. In addition, it provides a greater chance of preventing a fire accident by notifying of smoke and, if the user does not respond, sending a notification to the next selected contact. We are pleased to be the first in Europe to create the latest generation fire safety solution based on IoT technology, which is compatible with other systems and reduces the time to prevent fire accidents," says LMT president Juris Binde.
The smart sensor is easy to use with a mobile app, allowing you to remotely monitor the air quality in your home. It does not require Wi-Fi (the sensor functions on the IoT network – it already has a built-in internet and independently communicates with the nearest LMT tower), electricity connection or special user knowledge in the field of IT. Scientists from Riga Stradins University participated in the development of the sensor, while the Latvian technology company MikroTik participated in the production of the device.
The sensor ELPO is a service with a monthly fee. Find out more HERE.
