Remotely monitor damp, air quality and humidity in your social housing stock in real-time
What does it do?
Our damp sensor units monitor the level of dampness in a property remotely by testing the thermal conductivity of the surface of an internal wall and sending that data over a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) to a permission based, analytics and dashboard reporting solution.
Using the dashboard, landlords are alerted to any potential damp related issues before they impact on the integrity of the property or become a health risk for their tenants.
The alerts provide landlords with the information they need to be able to investigate further and take cost effective, preemptive maintenance to resolve issues before they become an expensive problem.
What are the benefits?
Damp and poor air quality - high humidity and condensation - in the home has been directly linked to respiratory problems, like asthma, especially in children.
By being able to remotely monitor air quality regularly over time, you can help improve the health of your tenants as well as prevent environmental damage to your buildings.
You also remove the reliance on tenants to raise issues which could - if gone unreported - become harder and more expensive to fix.
It can also highlight problems with heating systems or where help could be given to tenants living in fuel poverty.
Structural damp or tenant lifestyle condensation?
With effective remote monitoring, you'll be able to easily identify whether a home suffers from structural damp or condensation as a result of tenant lifestyle.
If If the data collected suggests the humidity in the home is too high or room temperature is too low, you can automatically send your tenants alerts e.g. ‘open windows’ or ‘put the heating on’ using our battery-operated, low power, e-paper screens to help them self manage.
The screens can also be used to send housing repair appointment reminders or, social care providers/circle of care stakeholders can send useful reminders to their service users or relatives.
