View Plus Joins RESET’s List of Accredited Air Quality Monitors While the Airthings for Business Dashboard Becomes an Accredited Data Provider
Oslo, Norway (July 1, 2021) – Airthings, a global leader in indoor air quality solutions and energy-saving technology announced today that its new and most comprehensive air quality monitor, View Plus for Business, has joined RESET’s list of accredited air quality monitors, an important seal of approval in the industry. In addition, the Airthings for Business Dashboard is now an accredited data provider, making the process to RESET-certify a building easier for its customers.
The RESET Standard is the world’s first sensor-based and performance-driven data standard and certification program for the built environment. The Standard outlines the requirements to deploy monitors, collect data, and report results, and it’s composed of several modules—all of which are necessary to achieve the certification. RESET Air, one of the modules, sets the standard for indoor air quality monitoring and is designed to prioritize occupant health. Airthings’ flagship sensor, Wave Plus for Business, is already a RESET accredited monitor.
“View Plus has undergone rigorous testing by external labs, and the RESET accreditation is another proof of the high-quality standards and sensor accuracy of our products,” said Oyvind Birkenes, CEO of Airthings. “As offices and schools reopen, it’s more important than ever to ensure the air quality is good and we’re excited to work together with partners such as RESET to help us make air quality monitors an essential element of every building.”
“The RESET Air standard helps property owners choose the right partners to monitor their indoor air quality and protect the health of its occupants,” said Stanton Wong, President of RESET. "We are strongly aligned with Airthings’ purpose to empower people to breathe better and we’re pleased to welcome their View Plus to our list of accredited monitors and have them as an accredited data provider.”
A Solution for Every Building
The Airthings for Business solution enables you to take charge of the health of both your buildings and the people using them. Set up in a matter of minutes, the wireless monitors run on long-lasting batteries, making the solution easily scalable and customizable to any new or existing space.
Launched earlier this year, View Plus is the most comprehensive indoor air quality monitor to complement the Airthings for Business solution, helping create healthy, productive, and energy-efficient indoor spaces. The RESET accreditation arrives just in time as View Plus for Business started shipping to customers at the end of June.
First RESET-Certified Office in the Nordics
The road to RESET-certifying your building starts by using accredited air quality monitors that continuously measure Particulate Matter (PM2.5), airborne chemicals (VOCs), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Temperature, and Relative Humidity. In addition, these monitors must be able to stream both historical and live data to RESET’s cloud via an accredited data provider. The Airthings for Business solution meets these requirements, making it easy to get an indoor space or building certified.
“By leveraging our indoor air quality monitoring solution we’re in the process of certifying our Oslo office with RESET,” added Birkenes. “This will make us the first RESET-certified office in the Nordics! Another important milestone for us that reinforces our commitment to empowering people to breathe better while reducing our impact on the environment.”
