Focus on Ventilation: Keeping Schools Safe
Keep school staff and students safe by monitoring indoor air and, when necessary, acting quickly to improve air quality.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), CO2 levels can be used as a proxy to measure how clean indoor air is. Every time someone exhales, speaks, sings etc., CO2 is released into the air. Research has shown that as the levels of CO2 rise, there are greater levels of “shared air” and increased risks of transmission of airborne viruses (e.g. COVID-19, influenza, whooping cough).
Measuring CO2 levels allows school administrators and staff to get an objective, data-based measure of indoor airflow in classrooms or other shared spaces.

Designed Specifically for Schools
• Remotely monitor your CO2 levels: CO2 Check™ includes remote trend monitoring via a mobile app without any additional devices required. Just plug in your device, connect to the Wi-Fi, and your device will start transmitting data seamlessly to a mobile app and dashboard.
• Mobile app and dashboard: Designed for facility managers, administrators, and staff to be able to monitor their school’s air quality from any location at any time. And, with push notifications, when acceptable CO2 levels are surpassed, staff is alerted so they can take actions to improve air quality.
• Simple, easy-to-use design: Visual display with simple graphics to help in the classroom to prompt actions to improve air quality.
• Included lesson plans to teach staff and students about CO2 monitoring and improving indoor air quality: Train staff and students about the importance of indoor air quality and staying safe using our CO2 monitoring lesson plans.
Sample Mesh Network Configuration to Cover Whole School
Devices eligible for ARP/ESSER funds
No need to rely on a school's WiFi network or connect devices via a school's guest network
By utilizing cellular service and mesh networking technology, all of a school's classrooms can have monitors that measure CO2 levels at all times. The devices are set up separate of a school's WiFi network, so there is no need to clog a school's network or to connect devices via a school's guest network. When levels get too high, our remote monitoring allows a staff member (facilities manager, school administrator, etc.) to get alerts that levels are too high in a classroom.
