Talkpool Utilizing LoRaWAN® Connectivity
Switzerland based company Talkpool, started 20 years ago as a company aimed to service networks and enable solutions to allow people and things alike to communicate efficiently and in 2014, made the step over to the emerging IoT industry. Thanks to Talkpool and the Internet of Things, there has been a revolution that has made it easier than ever to monitor CO2 levels indoors and to implement automatic warning messages to protect consumers from harmful air quality. Indoor air quality solutions are being deployed more and more frequently in office spaces and schools, contributing to an indoor environment that promotes enhanced well-being and increased productivity.
Smart Air Quality Solution
92% of our time on average is spent indoors, which makes the monitoring of indoor air quality of utmost importance for our health and well-being. Talkpool’s LoRaWAN® solution is designed to notify building occupants with an automated warning message when the indoor air quality passes a critical threshold, with an option to pair with a smart ventilation system for immediate corrective action. One of the greatest values of Talkpool’s solution is that it has a synergistic effect on existing building management systems, by enhancing the existing major BMS systems with data and intelligence in an easy way.
Talkpool has been implementing a suite of LoRaWAN® Sensors with coverage provided by TEKTELIC’s LoRaWAN® Gateways in their customers homes to provide a number of benefits such as:
Stable indoor climate
