Air quality is a growing concern around the world. The pollution issue is important in various places around the USA, like Texas. In this story, you’ll learn about air quality monitoring systems that our customers have deployed in the San Antonio, Texas, area.

These systems monitor gases that affect you and your family’s health. Poor air quality affects human health and can cause lung issues, asthma, and other health problems. The air quality sensors in these monitoring systems measure:

  • Ozone – O3
  • Nitrogen Dioxide – NO2
  • Nitric Oxide – NO

In addition to these air quality factors, the systems include meteo sensors that measure ambient temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure. continuously receives the measurements from these air quality sensors made by Alphasense. All of the sensors upload their information to Valarm Tools Cloud when they’re connected to the following hardware:

Thanks to the automatic Alphasense air quality sensor calculators integrated into Valarm Tools Cloud, it’s easy for your organization to convert the raw voltages output by air quality sensors into the real world units that make sense to you, like parts per million / ppm.

These air quality monitoring systems are powered by standard 110V mains electricity. When you’ve got easy access to a power source, it’s easier and makes sense to simplify and take advantage of your available resources. Generally, solar powered systems are more expensive than 110V mains power since solar systems need more hardware like solar panels, charge controllers, and mounting hardware. Since we’re flexible here at Valarm, we’ll work with you, your teams, and your organization to decide the best fit for your Industrial IoT and sensor monitoring needs. Have a look at our customer stories page to see how organizations save time and money, while improving business operations and effectiveness by installing monitoring systems.

That’s your quick and easy overview of these air quality monitoring systems deployed in Texas. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at if you’ve got any questions.
