Benefit from improved indoor air quality and ventilation, leading to better respiratory health.
Discreet and secure, our Environmental Sensors are placed throughout the home to monitor temperature, humidity and Carbon Dioxide (CO2), providing actionable insights into conditions such as mould risk, energy
effciency, ventilation, excess cold and heat and indoor air quality.
Data insight enables the creation of healthier, safer homes for residents through improved forecasting and maintenance of property conditions.
Gather data on indoor environmental conditions by installing Environmental Sensors in high-risk areas.
Connected sensors across multiple properties will give millions of invaluable data readings. Advanced Machine Learning technology constantly interprets the data to provide clear, actionable insights which are available via the HomeLINK Dashboard.
Designed with social landlords, our innovative portal provides the information landlords will value most, to optimise investment, identify and tackle fuel poverty, improve maintenance and deliver unrivalled service to residents.
An exciting innovation in home life safety, our Environmental Sensors have been designed to create better maintained, healthier and energy efficient homes.
Easy to install and manage, Environmental Sensors help to overcome many challenges, from compliance and carbon footprint to mould risk and fuel poverty; adding another dimension to resident safety, while helping landlords to meet their strategic goals.
The Environmental Sensors have a built-in 10-year lithium battery meaning battery replacement is not required, include a tamper-proof locking baseplate and are quick and simple to install.
Some indoor areas are more susceptible to changes in indoor environmental conditions, such as:
Bathrooms: A high-risk area for condensation, damp and mould due to high humidity and inadequate ventilation.
Kitchens: A high-risk area for condensation, damp, mould and excess heat due to potentially limited ventilation and increased humidity from cooking.
Living rooms: Residents are likely to spend a lot of time here and increasing CO2 levels from high occupancy.
Bedrooms: Residents spend a significant amount of time sleeping and it can be a risk area for allergens e.g. dust mites.
Stylish and secure, our Environmental Sensors are placed throughout the home to monitor temperature, humidity and Carbon Dioxide (CO2), providing actionable insights into conditions such as mould risk, energy efficiency, ventilation, excess cold and heat, and indoor air quality.
The Ei1020 includes temperature and humidity sensors, with the Ei1020 featuring an additional CO2 sensor.
Designed with social landlords, the analytics platform displays data insights via a holistic, user-friendly dashboard.
From Carbon Dioxide, energy efficiency and indoor air quality to mould risk, allergens and ventilation, there’s a wealth of actionable insights available, segmented by high, medium and low risk. View top-level data on the main dashboard or drill down for deeper insights to tackle problems, maintain compliance and enable preventative strategies within housing stock.
The HomeLINK Dashboard provides detailed property and portfolio views and is designed for multiple user roles.
By empowering residents with their data and personalised insights, landlords will see improvements in the maintenance and health of their stock with less intervention, while residents can save money by running their homes with energy efficiency in mind.
With the HomeLINK Resident App, residents are provided with a healthy home rating, temperature, humidity and CO2 data and handy advice on the measures they can take to improve the
quality of their home.
When Fire and Carbon Monoxide alarms are interlinked with the SmartLINK Gateway, the Resident App will notify residents with testing reminders and alarm activation events.
The Environmental Sensors and Platform connect with Aico’s Ei1000G SmartLINK Gateway; an innovative and award-winning system designed to monitor Fire and Carbon Monoxide alarm systems in real-time. The Ei1000G has recently received a BSI Kitemark for IoT, in recognition of its communications performance and security. Connection to the Gateway is required in order to access the insights captured by the Environmental Sensors.
The SmartLINK App enables quick and easy installation of Environmental Sensors with advanced House Coding capabilities. Simply scan the associated QR code to capture the Environmental Sensors, while the
Gateway automatically House Codes the units to wirelessly interconnect to the system.
Aico’s SmartLINK Gateway is the central hub for data, extracting information from both Fire and Carbon Monoxide alarm systems and Environmental Sensors. With all data in one place, landlords can benefit
from increased efficiency and improved asset management.
