Their new Smart Vent is able to collect data on air quality and automatically adjust the indoor environment to compensate.

According to the World Health Organization, indoor air can be up to eight times more polluted than the air outside, and that indoor air pollution is responsible for 4.3 million deaths. Protecting the health of people indoors is an increasing challenge now that more and more people spend their time working in offices and homes. French technology company Enerbee hopes to use the IoT to improve indoor air quality with their new Smart Vent.

The vent uses sensors to collect data on the air quality inside a home or office and uses that data to provide better air quality control. It measures air flow, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide levels, pressure levels and the levels of volatile organic compounds in the air. It uses this data to automatically adjust air distribution and quality and compares it to historical data to quickly find any anomalies, the company stated.

The vent automatically optimizes itself for energy efficiency. This helps both homeowners and smart building managers save on energy costs.

Users can access the collected data and analytics through a mobile app on any smartphone or tablet. The company will be demonstrating the Smart Vent at the upcoming Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 5-8th , 2017.
