This paper presents an ongoing research study that aims to use cost-effective, off-the-shelf components for measuring indoor air quality with the ultimate goal of utilizing the collected data for optimizing energy usage in existing building stock while preserving good living and working conditions.
The paper introduces the overall system architecture and describes the components used in implementing the sensor system. The use of the system is illustrated through two use cases: a university classroom and an apartment building used for eldercare. The requirements that were observed for the system as well as the experiences and challenges faced in designing, implementing, and installing the system in real-life locations are discussed in this paper.
