During periods of rapid growth and development in childhood, normal biological processes may be disrupted by environmental pollutants

Children are more sensitive to environmental pollution and face special risks since their lungs, immune and psychological systems are growing. All worldwide health organizations have flagged environmental health for children as a concern. The Butterfly is tamper-proof (generates an alarm email if moved) and can be mounted in classrooms to monitor air quality, heat index, barometric pressure, noise, interrupting the teacher to open windows, turn on AC, etc. The Butterfly is also ideal to house externally to provide heat Index feedback so that children (particularly in sports) are not put in harm’s way. It's not just temperature, but the combination of temperature and humidity (Heat Index), which determines the true effects of heat on our children.


If mounted on external doors, or cabinets, an alarm email can be generated if opened by naughty children

Covid-19 and air quality

If someone is infected, respiratory droplets and airborne transmission can carry the virus to others. The lower the ambient humidity and temperature is, the longer the aerosol can stay in the air.

The Coronavirus cannot specifically be detected in the air but the amount of used air is easily measurable with the Butterfly. Both the infection risk and the impact can be significantly reduced. A stoplight approach can be used when too many people have saturated the air in an indoor environment, urging teachers to ventilate the room. The air quality sensor in the Butterfly measures both VOCs and calculated CO2 from exhaled breath and advises when to ventilate.
