How often do I receive data from the Wave devices?
The Airthings for Business sensor devices sample air every 5 minutes. In order to maximize battery life, the device sleeps for 5 minutes and wakes up again to send a sample package to the Hub which is then forwarded to the cloud and made available within the Business Dashboard or through the API.
What is the battery life of the Wave Plus for Business?
2 x AA Lithium batteries provide an estimated 2 year battery life for the Wave Plus for Business.
Can I use the data in other systems?
Yes. The Airthings REST API or Webhook offers a secure and straightforward method for pulling sensor and device information into your own system.
Can I integrate the Airthings data to my existing BAS or BMS?
Yes. The Airthings API contains all commands and information needed to pull sensor and device information into your existing BI solution or as an input into your BAS or BMS.
Can I generate a report to share measurement data and analysis with parents and teachers at the school?
Yes. The Airthings Pro Dashboard contains an IAQ reporting feature, allowing you to export to PDF and share your IAQ data in a professional, yet easy to understand method.
Do the sensors have to be calibrated?
No, Airthings sensors are factory calibrated and self-calibrate during use. The drift is within our stated measurement margin of error.
What is the range of the Hub and the Wave Plus/Mini for Business?
The range depends on the building, but we use low frequency radio which has a very long range and can penetrate thick walls. As a guide, a Hub’s range can reach 1-2 floors up and down, and go through roughly 10 light non-load bearing walls per floor.
Do I need an electrician or a building automation engineer to install?
No. The Airthings Healthy Building Solution is specifically designed to be a plug and play, wireless, battery operated solution. Magnetic mounting brackets and screws or 3M Command Strips make installation effortless.
I already have a consumer account, will that be a problem?
No, but you will need to make some decisions. When we create the Airthings for Business "organization" in our system, you will be invited to make a user for that account by receiving an email from us. If the email address we send that invitation to is linked to an existing consumer account, it will be moved to the Business account, and it will no longer have access to the consumer devices because it's not possible to use consumer devices in the Business Dashboard.
If you would like to keep the measurements from the consumer devices you already have, you will have to make a separate user for the Business account with a different email address then the one you use for your consumer devices - so then you will have one consumer user with measurements from your consumer products and one Business user with access to all the new measurements for your Business devices. If you don't need to keep your existing measurements however, you can unpair the consumer devices from your consumer account, and we invite you to the Business account with that email address.
