Frost & Sullivan is recognizing Airthinx as North America’s Most Innovative Company of 2019 for its Internet-of-Things (IoT) indoor air quality monitoring solution.
Each year, the leading market research firm Frost & Sullivan presents the Best Practices Awards to companies that are expected to encourage significant growth in their industries, have identified emerging trends before they became the standard in the marketplace, and have created advanced technologies that will catalyze and transform industries in the near future.
“People are beginning to appreciate that the expanding resources available to improve indoor air quality are a good environmental and financial investment. Airthinx’s growth potential over the next three to five years is staggering, yet aligns with overall industry growth expectations, as consumers are increasingly learning to take seriously the negative impacts of poor indoor environments on health and overall quality of life,” says Vijay Wilfred, research analyst with Frost & Sullivan.
Airthinx has led an international movement for improved air quality in the environmental health and safety industry since its signature product launch in 2018.
The Airthinx IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) is the first low-cost, professionally graded indoor air quality monitoring solution that combines sophisticated sensing technology and allows continuous monitoring of more than ten parameters simultaneously (e.g. PM 1, PM 2.5, PM 10, CO2, CH2O, VOCs, Temperature, Humidity & Pressure and more). Built on an enterprise level Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform, it boasts cellular connectivity & wifi, scalability, security and reliability, from small to large-scale deployments. It’s artificial intelligence (AI) engine enables automatic detection and classification of critical events such as smoking, fire, mold contamination and more. The open APIs on the platform’s backbone enable integration with Building Management Systems to timely mitigate occupants’ exposure to environmental hazards like poor indoor air quality and also offers integration with operations data management systems such as SAP.
In addition to offering the high-performing Airthinx IAQ solution, Airthinx will be releasing the Airthinx Pro for outdoor monitoring and harsh indoor environments, by the end of the year.
“Governments across the world are working diligently to develop Smart Cities to drive economic growth and operate more sustainably. The expected launch of Airthinx Pro which can monitor both the indoor as well as outdoor air quality, is well aligned with the Smart Cities goals of major developed and developing nations,” Wilfred concludes.
The company’s objective is to provide accurate and reliable air quality data in real-time, making it accessible to everyone in order to monitor environmental pollution outdoors and to improve health and safety indoors, while optimizing building performance, reducing maintenance & operational costs, implementing energy efficient systems, improving occupant comfort, and growing business in the long-run.
“On behalf of Airthinx, I am honored to be recognized in only our second year for the work we are doing towards the fight for clean air by disrupting an entire industry and making air quality monitoring accessible and affordable for everyone. It is a basic human right. I am also humbled to stand alongside the ranks of Microsoft, Google, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) in receiving award recognition by Frost & Sullivan,” says Dr. Vasileios Nasis, Airthinx CEO.
Frost & Sullivan selected Airthinx from over 100 companies across multiple industries to be honored. Founded with the mission of creating safe, healthy & energy-efficient spaces, everywhere in the world, Airthinx aims to make clean air accessible to everyone by democratizing air quality data.
