INDOOR AIR QUALITY MONITOR
Measure temperature and humidity, monitor the levels of indoor air pollutants (VOCs) in your environment, and be informed to take simple steps to improve ventilation when needed – all with the Air app.
MEASURE HUMIDITY AND AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE
Get useful temperature and humidity readings with the integrated indoor air quality monitor of the Cat® S61 smartphone. With the Air app on the device, you can quickly understand the moisture levels in your working environment. It is useful for rooms without an extractor fan, or regular ventilation, and where opening a window alone doesn’t always completely remove all the moisture. You can also use it to help you understand when a freshly plastered wall is ready to paint.
BE AWARE OF INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Use the Cat S61’s in-built indoor air quality sensor to monitor the air conditions around you.
The Air app shows you the detected level of indoor air pollutants (VOCs), commonly found in products such as solvents, glues, paints, and cleaning agents. The sensor checks the air quality every four seconds, when activated, and can alert you with a notification when VOCs hit unhealthy levels. This allows you to take simple steps to reduce your exposure: improve the ventilation by opening doors and windows or turning on air conditioning, or take a short break.
WHICH INDOOR AIR POLLUTANTS CAN THE S61 MONITOR?
Indoor air pollutants, or more specifically Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), include a large range of chemicals and substances.
The Cat S61’s indoor air quality sensor has been tuned to detect the most common VOCs that tradesmen, such as plumbers, carpenters, painters, decorators, builders, and electricians might be exposed to. These include paints, solvents, glues and adhesives, carpets, furnishings, cosmetics, and cleaning agents.
Prolonged exposure to VOCs can result in a range of health issues, including headaches and dizziness, irritation to the eyes, skin, nose and throat, and respiratory problems.
Note: The Air app is not a tool for checking whether an area is safe. It is unable to detect individual gas or vapours like smoke, asbestos or carbon monoxide. Instead, it is a tool for providing you with better information to help reduce your exposure to VOCs.
