Videalert has announced the availability of a new generation of air quality monitoring sensors that integrate gas and particulate matter sensors. The sensors utilize Videalert’s existing infrastructure to transmit readings in real-time, providing instant measurements showing the level of pollution in key locations.

Videalert’s air monitoring sensors integrate with the company’s digital video platform to provide real-time monitoring of air pollution.

The Videalert device features a particulate matter sensor that uses the latest optical-based technologies and advanced sensor fusion algorithms to sense and count airborne particles from 1-1800µgm³. To ensure reliable operation, the sensor is based on light scattering and is fully glass sealed to protect the internal mechanism from detrimental atmospheric effects.

The device is designed to integrate with Videalert’s RDS WAN units to transmit captured sensor data to Videalert’s digital video platform, where it can be ‘visualized’ to show the levels of particulate matter at different times throughout the day and night.
