Electrical and digital building infrastructures specialist Legrand’s Netatmo smart systems comprise indoor air quality monitors, which are easy to install, configure and manage.
Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. everyone is more aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy home environment.
“We have learnt during lockdown that indoor air can be more polluted than outside air.” Allergens such as mould, dust particles and chemicals in cleaning materials all contribute to poor indoor air quality.
This is a particular concern for parents with babies and young children, who are more susceptible to air pollution. “Constant exposure to contaminants can lead to health issues, such as irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness, fatigue and asthma,’’ says the company.
In addition, high humidity in a home makes the air heavier and causes breathing difficulties, resulting in the growth of bacteria, fungus and yeast.
Legrand explains that, with the installation of Netatmo indoor air quality monitors, homeowners are able to easily enhance their living environment by controlling air quality, humidity, temperature and sound levels.
Further, the Netatmo air quality monitors communicate all necessary information about the home environment directly to a smartphone and allow users to view data history.
This is done by tracking various parameters and receiving real-time alerts when the home environment changes – users can maintain a constantly healthy environment, Legrand concludes.
