IC-meter is a Plug ‘n Play concept to measure and analyse the indoor climate at home and at the work place.
Indoor Climate Meter (IC-Meter) measures, visualizes and analyses indoor climate in a room or a building. The concept is comprised by a data measurement device, a server and website with APP client for mobile units (IOS/Android). The meter device delivers accurate information for temperature, humidity and – as a new feature on the consumer market – it measures the level of CO2.
Measurements are uploaded to the server every 5 minutes, via the client’s own WiFi/Internet. At the same time, the server automatically retrieves local weather forecasts, energy measurements, etc. from public and commercial suppliers’ servers.
IC-Meter is a generic and globally focused product, based on the facts:
- The laws of thermodynamics are universally valid,
- Weather forecast data are widely standardized globally, and
- Internet is the preferred communication platform of the World’s population
IC-Meter analyses indoor climate and indoor energy conditions by the use of quality sensors and advanced algorithms – no need for consultants nor for questionnaire forms. IC-Meter retrieves automatically local weather forecasts for any location on Earth. By comparing the climate inside a room with the local weather forecast the IC-Meter delivers key values for air turnover, minutes per day with full ventilation, daily production of water vapor, as well as for the function “Anybody home right now”?
Combined with an external energy meter, e.g. IC-Meter’s “digital oil meter” or data from an electricity plant, the energy usage can be remote diagnosed and distributed between buildings envelope, air turnover and base load/hot water as well as the heat contribution of the sun can be estimated.
