Airgloss, from space to consumer market with a cutting-edge solution for Smart Homes
To improve indoor air quality and thermal comfort, with immediate health benefits
Airgloss will exhibit at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, the most important and anticipated tradeshow for consumer electronics at global level, by introducing an innovative solution for real-time air quality monitoring and thermal comfort management. During the event, that will take place January 9 to January 12, Airgloss will present its MultiSense technology for advanced environmental monitoring. Directly derived from space exploration industry, it is capable of detecting harmful air contaminants within indoor spaces with direct effects on people’s health and wellbeing.
“Lowering exposure to pollutants or to unfavorable environmental conditions drastically reduces the incidence of various pathologies, some of which very severe” said Ciro Formisano, CEO of Airgloss. “Our goal is to redefine wellbeing, comfort and safety standards in private homes, offices and schools, by offering cost-effective monitoring devices, ensuring full control over indoor microclimate through smart air quality, thermal, acoustic and visual comfort management.”
Outdoor air pollution has been a matter of great concern for many years. However, some recent studies have demonstrated that closed spaces such as flats, offices, schools and vehicles can be 2 to 5 times more polluted compared to external environments.
Airgloss has developed and patented an advanced technology based on Artificial Intelligence to identify numerous pollutants and improve indoor air quality and wellbeing. Products based on Airgloss MultiSense technology can be managed via a mobile app for real-time and remote monitoring and controlling of air quality and thermal comfort in closed environments. With continuous monitoring and an instant notification system, indoor air quality and well-being can always be maintained at high standard by creating a proper balance
of temperature and humidity, adequate illumination and ambient noise reduction.
Airgloss offers three solutions for different application areas: Airgloss ProSense, Airgloss ComfortKit and Airgloss OEM. Airgloss ProSense, mainly designed for industrial applications, suits offices, meeting rooms and other public spaces such as schools and workspaces, where air quality influences occupants’ wellbeing and health, with a direct impact on performance and productivity. Airgloss Comfort Kit is specifically intended for homes as, in addition to air quality monitoring, it has all the functionalities of a smart thermostat, providing heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Airgloss ComfortKit is easy to install even without professional support. It can be transferred from one environment to another to ensure a high comfort level without compromises, considerably cutting electricity and gas bills both in summer and winter. Airgloss OEM has instead been designed to be integrated into third-party devices such as air purifiers, range hoods or portable systems for environmental monitoring.
From space to consumer market, we invested in 5 years research and development to refine Airgloss MultiSense technology. Initially built for astronauts’ safety, it was first tested on the International Space Station during the Shuttle Mission of NASA STS-134. From there on, an idea was born to make this solution accessible to everyone, with an immediate benefit for people's health, providing energy saving and positive environmental externalities. Airgloss was founded in 2014 and is currently located in the ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC) Lazio in Rome (Italy).
