All ZiggyTec IOT Devices (IAQ Sensors & Utility Meter Readers) are battery powered devices. This means they can be places anywhere within a customer’s building without requiring access to a power supplies.
The measurement data is transmitted directly from the device to a global IOT Network. It is secure and completely independent from the local IT infrastructure. From the IOT Network data is sent to ZiggyTec’c cloud Portal where we process, store and action the data via live displays and alerts.
ZiggyPortal gives you instant access to you indoor air quality and utility data which can be viewed in a web browser, on a screen on the wall or easily connected via API into your other systems.
how does it work?
CO2 is a measure of how much fresh air there is in a building. Outside, in the fresh air, the level of CO2 is 400ppm (parts per million). People breathe in oxygen and breath out CO2, so in indoor occupied spaces, the level of CO2 will naturally rise. With good indoor ventilation, the level of CO2 should stay less than 800ppm. If the readings go higher than 800ppm then there isn’t enough ventilation in your premises. Poor ventilation leads to increased virus load in the air with in turn increases the transmissibility of viruses. Our sensor measures CO2 in the range 0 – 5000ppm using solid-state non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) absorption. The sensors also records temperature and relative humidity. The measurement interval of 30mins is standard but more frequent measurement intervals can be requested to comply with WELL.
PM is air-suspended mixture of both solid and liquid particles and is listed as ‘criteria pollutants’ by the World Health Organisation. These particles include dust, pollen and mould spores. They are separated into three classifications; PM10 (coarse), PM2.5 (fine) and PM1.0 (ultrafine) particles. High levels of PM are a clear indication of poor filter performance in the building.
Our advanced algorithms provide superior accuracy for 3 different PM types. Our sensors have an operation range of 0-1000 μg/m3. The sensors also records temperature and relative humidity. The measurement interval of 30mins is standard but more frequent measurement intervals can be requested. The devices are calibrated in the factory and there is an automatic fan-cleaning procedure triggered weekly to ensure device accuracy.
volatile organic compounds
VOCs are gaseous chemicals emitted from certain solids and liquids with common sources
being paints and coatings, building materials, cleaning supplies and various office equipment. Our VOC device uses a metal-oxide gas sensor. The sensing element features an unmatched robustness against contaminating gases present in real-world applications enabling a unique long-term stability and low drift.
The operating range is 0-60,000ppb. The sensors also records temperature and relative humidity.
The measurement interval of 30mins is standard but more frequent measurement intervals can be requested if necessary to comply with WELL. The devices are calibrated in the factory before shipping.
measure your utilities remotely
Our utility meter readers operate on the principle of counting the pulses generated by your utility meters. Using our algorithms, we convert this data into ½ hourly consumption usage. Over devices can be added to any type of utility meter, including electricity, gas, water, oil,
heat and cooling.
The basic principles are the same regardless of utility type. We attach our sensors to either the optical LED output or the digital open and closed relays that come with all utility meters. The measurement interval of 30mins is standard for all utilities. This is particularly advantageous for detecting water leaks in buildings.
made for professionals by professionals
ZiggyAPI is a REST API which allows you or your agents to securely download all your historic data as often as you choose. We use a token mechanism to grant access to the API. Using a GET request with range parameters a customer can ingest all their half hour data in JSON format. The API is part of the standard service – there is no extra charge.
