Sensirion is proud to announce the harmonisation of its air quality sensors with the RESET Air Standard.

This step simplifies the accreditation process for indoor air quality monitors and enables customers to comply with RESET standards while ensuring accurate and reliable indoor air quality monitoring.

Indoor air quality significantly impacts the health, well-being, productivity, and overall quality of life for occupants of both commercial and residential buildings. Research has shown that poor indoor air quality can lead to a range of health issues, including respiratory problems, allergies, asthma, and even long-term chronic illnesses.

Healthy building standards, such as the RESET Air Standard, provide a framework to ensure the creation of healthier and more sustainable built environments. RESET strongly believes that you cannot effectively solve what you cannot measure. It therefore focuses on data quality and transparency, promoting continuous monitoring and data collection via standardisation to drive awareness, visibility, and effective solutions for indoor air quality challenges.

To ensure high data quality, RESET accredits indoor air quality monitors that meet their standards with the RESET Air Certification, making them eligible for RESET projects. To obtain this certification the following five environmental parameters need to be tracked through continuous real time monitoring: CO2, Particulate Matter (PM2.5), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), Relative Humidity (RH), and Temperature (T). This is where Sensirion comes into play. Sensirion is committed to harmonising its products with relevant building standards and, as a one-stop-shop for air quality sensors, now offers a solution for measuring all five required environmental parameters with only two sensors – the environmental sensor node SEN54 and the CO2 sensor SCD41.

Moreover, Sensirion recently released a specialised application note that assists customers in implementing the VOC feature in accordance with RESET and WELL (IWBI) requirements. The integration of Sensirion's sensors simplifies the accreditation process for indoor air quality monitors and enables customers to comply with the RESET Air Standard while ensuring a short time to market and an effective cost structure.

Stanton Wong, President of RESET, stated: "RESET welcomes Sensirion's harmonisation of their air quality sensors with our standard and we fully support their transparency on limitations and processing of the VOC output signal."

Sensirion is equally enthusiastic about the collaboration: "We are delighted to partner with RESET in creating meaningful standards around indoor air quality that enhance people's health and cognitive performance. The ability to measure all five parameters with only two sensors facilitates our customers' compliance with RESET," Marco Gysel, Business Development Manager at Sensirion.
