Formaldehyde, CH2O is a colorless volatile organic compound with a strong odor. There are two main sources of it: off-gassing and combustion. Formaldehyde is presented outdoors, but its concentrations indoors are higher due to its emission prevalence in building materials and household products.
PM1 , PM2.5, PM10
Temperature & Humidity
Generally, people feel comfortable at temperatures between 21°C to 27°C (69°F to 80°F).
Generally, people feel comfortable at a relative humidity between 40% to 60%.
Light intensity requirements depend on the space's specific purposes. The light levels for a conference room or a library should be 300-500 lux (30-50 fc), while professional laboratories require 750-1200 lux (75-120 fc). Workspaces and spaces for the elderly people need more than 500 lux (46 fc). In the evening hours, light intensity should be as low as 5 lux (0,46 fc) to eliminate sleep disruption.
Noise levels above 70 dB over a prolonged time period may start to damage your hearing.
PM1, PM2.5, PM10
PM1 are ultrafine particles with a diameter smaller than 1 micrometer: dust, combustion particles, bacteria. PM2.5 can be made of different chemicals like black carbon, ammonia, sulfur dioxide, etc. PM10 or coarse dust particles refer to particles with a diameter less than or equal to 10 microns in size. They are about 30 times smaller than the width of human hair and are small enough to get inhaled into our lungs.
Relative Humidity & Temperature
Total Volatile Organic Compounds metric is the total concentration of volatile organic compounds in the air. VOCs are carbon-containing chemical gases emitted from solids and liquids. VOCs are not only hazardous but also play a significant role in the formation of ozone and fine particulates (PM) in the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide is an odorless non-toxic gas. People exhale CO2 when they breathe. When there are several people in a poorly ventilated room, CO2 concentration increases and affects occupants’ wellbeing. Safe standards for indoors: 400-1000 ppm.
When barometric pressure drops, your blood pressure decreases. For some, this can mean dizziness or even blurred vision. Also some people experience high-altitude headaches due to changes in barometric pressure, such as during plane travel.
Atmocube has 12 sensors inside to measure all major indoor environmental parameters such as air quality, temperature, humidity, light intensity and noise levels.
Streamline your sales process, validate the effectiveness of air purification devices, and deliver exceptional value with Atmocube’s integration.
Comply with green building standards, such as WELL and RESET, monitor CO2 levels, and showcase your commitment to occupant well-being to gain a competitive advantage in the market.
Create healthier and more productive work environments by optimizing air quality and ensuring employee comfort.
Measure real-time indoor environmental comfort, integrate seamlessly with BMS/BAS, and elevate your HVAC services with upselling and cross-selling opportunities.
Monitoring air quality is critical to maximizing the comfort of your tenants and increasing their satisfaction with your space. Let them know that you care!
Our goal is to build a measuring tool that will be trusted by both air quality professionals and tenants and several international accreditations are expected by the end of 2021.
Commercial-grade sensors with high precision: PM sensors are MCERTS verified and tested by AQ-SPEC at South Coast AQMD.
For accurate readings, one monitor per 1100 sqf (100sqm) of open space is recommended.
Connectivity and API enable seamless integration with the existing Building Management System (BMS) or direct connection with Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC).
”My facility has been using Atmocubes for the past year and we have made great progress in the air quality in our laboratory thanks to them. First, the software logging system helped us easily identify the source of our air quality issues when there was a clear spike in the particulate matter from turning a machine on. The Atmocube system has also helped us with trying different counter measures to contain and improve the source. Without them, we wouldn’t have known what alleviation methods worked and didn’t work. I highly recommend Atmocubes!”

“This new product is positioned far more for the post-COVID era, where air quality inside offices is going to be vital… the Atmocube will be prominent and visible in order to give office workers peace of mind that their air quality is good.”
“Atmocube has done a great job in developing an Indoor AQ monitor with all the essential tools to make it a big success.”
