9 Foundations of Healthy Buildings

Join us in the White House's new Initiative:
“Clean Air in Buildings Challenge”

The “Clean Air in Buildings Challenge” is a call to action and a set of guiding principles and best practices to assist building owners and operators with reducing risks from airborne viruses and other contaminants indoors. The Clean Air in Buildings Challenge highlights a range of recommendations and resources available for improving ventilation and indoor air quality, which can help to better protect the health of building occupants and reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread.

Here are the ways HALO Smart Sensor can help you participate in this initiative.

Take the first step in creating a healthy, safe and secure environment for your facility.

HALO Smart Sensor Healthy Buildings
HALO Smart Sensor - Health - Air Quality

AIR QUALITY

Choose supplies and building products with low chemical emissions to limit sources of VOC’s. Know the carbon dioxide, particulate, and carbon monoxide levels in occupied spaces. Constantly measure for their presence and remove them from the air when necessary.

HALO Smart Sensor - Health - Temp

TEMPERATURE

Conduct regular maintenance and monitor temperature in real-time to prevent and resolve thermal comfort issues promptly.

HALO Smart Sensor - Health - Humidity

HUMIDITY

Conduct regular maintenance and monitor humidity in real-time to prevent and resolve moisture issues promptly. Identify and prevent mold growth conditions.

HALO Smart Sensor - Health - Particulates

DUST AND PARTICULATES

Use high-efficiency filters and clean surfaces regularly to limit dust and dirt accumulation, which are the vehicles on which viruses travel from person to person.

HALO Smart Sensor - Noise

NOISE

Control indoor sources of noise such as mechanical equipment, office equipment and machinery. Monitor for sound anomalies which can become a security concern.

HALO Smart Sensor - Occupancy

OCCUPANCY

Know if there are too many people in a room, if a space is occupied when it should not be or abnormal behavior of people clustering in a room location.

HALO Smart Sensor - Security

SAFETY AND SECURITY

Be situationally aware through non-visual sensory technology. Provide the tools for safe environments such as keyword emergency calls, aggression detection, occupancy, and use of prohibited substances.

HALO Smart Sensor - Light Alerts

ALERT LIGHTING

Visually indicate the status of a location with lighting. Show room occupancy maximums are met, air quality condition, and safe paths to egress.

HALO Smart Sensor - Ventilation

VENTILATION

Meet or exceed local outdoor air ventilation rate guidelines to control indoor sources of odors, chemicals and carbon dioxide.
