Aico launches new Environmental Sensors to promote healthier homes

Aico has launched new HomeLINK Environmental Sensors, designed to create better maintained, healthier, energy efficient homes by monitoring temperature, humidity and Carbon Dioxide.  

Available in two models; the Ei1020 measures temperature and humidity while the Ei1025 measures temperature, humidity and CO2, the Environmental Sensors provide actionable insights into conditions such as mould risk, draught risk, excess cold, heat loss and indoor air quality.

Insights from the new Environmental Sensors on indoor environmental conditions allow for preventative measures and proactive maintenance, enabling landlords to adhere to requirements outlined in Standards and Legislation, such as the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 and the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing.

The SmartLINK Gateway extracts the data from Environmental Sensors and provides a central hub for data from both Fire and Carbon Monoxide alarm systems and Environmental Sensors. Advanced Machine Learning technology interprets the data to provide insights which are available via the HomeLINK dashboard.

With data from Environmental Sensors and connected Fire and Carbon Monoxide alarm systems segmented by high, medium and low risk, top-level data can be viewed on the main dashboard.

The HomeLINK Resident App, specifically designed for the Environmental Sensors, gives people an insight into their home health through an overall rating, temperature, humidity and CO2 data and advice on the measures they can take to improve the quality of their home, including alarm testing notifications.

Aico’s Managing Director, Neal Hooper comments: “Alongside our SmartLINK Gateway, our Environmental Sensors will support in the advancement of the connected home, providing a wealth of benefits to landlords and residents alike.”

Chris Jones, Chief Executive Officer of HomeLINK says of the launch: “Prior to our acquisition by Aico, HomeLINK had huge demand for Environmental Sensors due to the obvious and sizeable compliance and maintenance business case they presented. As Aico’s first smart home product outside of smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms, these sensors represent a large milestone. Having already connected 65,000 devices in UK social housing, and with backorders of several thousand of the new sensors, it is clear that Internet of Things technologies have truly taken hold in the sector.”
