We are thrilled to announce the release of exciting new features now available in the Awair Dashboard! With our Visual Anomaly Detection and Air Change Estimation technology, you can now identify air quality changes across hours, days, and weeks like never before. We have also implemented other quality-of-life improvements, providing you with more configurable options to enhance your data analysis experience. Below is a detailed list of these new features along with accompanying screenshots:
(1) Device Analytics View
On the Metrics page of the Awair Dashboard, you'll find a new button called "Device Analytics" in the left-hand column. By clicking this button, you'll be taken to a new view where you can compare the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) data of a single device across multiple days or weeks. You can easily switch between the "Daily" or "Weekly" tabs to change the displayed timeframe and refine the hours you wish to review. Unlike data reported in the Metrics page, each of the lines displayed on the graphs in this view will represent the Timeframes selected for a single device (be it days or weeks).
For the most relevant insight, we recommend comparing IAQ data during occupied hours. To capture the desired data, simply adjust the "Monitoring Hours" section located at the top of the page. In the Daily view, you can compare up to 14 days, while in the Weekly view, you can compare up to 12 weeks.
When exporting your data from each Air Factor section, you'll notice the exported data will only include information within the "Monitoring Hours," effectively removing any unwanted noise and ensuring a more accurate offline analysis. Please note that clicking the icon will hide specific days or weeks from view, streamlining your analysis further.
(2) Air Exchange Rate Estimator using Air Changes Per Hour (ACH)
Leveraging your devices' CO2 readings, we now provide an estimated rate of air volume exchange within your environment. To access this feature, select your device(s) in the Metrics page or Device Analytics view, scroll down to the CO2 data view, and click and drag from any point on the Timeline. This will reveal the Estimated Air Exchange Rate measured in Air Changes Per Hour. We recommend selecting a peak CO2 reading in the "Poor" threshold and dragging it to the first moment the score enters the "Good" threshold. This will help you identify your environment's rate of air change. A faster decay in CO2 levels indicates better air circulation in the space. With this tool, you can quickly identify when your devices record "Good" or "Poor" air quality according to global organizations such as ASHRAE and WHO.
(3) Threshold Exceedance Feature
When you select your device(s) from the Metrics page or Device Analytics view, you will notice highlighted sections of the Timeline in Green or Red, accompanied by horizontal dashed lines. These highlight your devices' Threshold Exceedances in comparison to the "Good" and "Poor" IAQ standards. You can enable or disable these Threshold Exceedances using the checkboxes at the bottom right corner of each Air Factor view. Additionally, you can adjust them to your preference using the "Configure" button at the top. When viewing a single device, you can check the box "Highlight Threshold Exceedances" in the bottom left-hand corner to see a vertical view of instances of "Good" and "Poor" instead of the horizontal boundaries.
Note: When viewing a single device, you can check the box “Highlight Threshold Exceedances” in the bottom left-hand corner, which will instead highlight the instances of “Good” and “Poor” in a vertical view instead of the horizontal boundaries.
(4) Other Quality-of-Life improvements
While viewing any IAQ data in the Dashboard, you will notice an icon in the top right corner. Clicking this icon will display your device(s)' Average, Current, Maximum, Minimum, and Median scores for the selected Timeline range. If you have multiple devices selected, you can cycle between them using the arrows next to the device names.
