Could an Air-Quality Monitor Detect Coronavirus in Your Building?
As questions mount about how coronavirus may be spread through recirculated indoor air, one company is attempting to get ahead of the curve.
Senseware, based in Tysons Corner, is currently beta-testing an air quality-monitoring option intended to detect the presence of coronavirus inside an enclosed space. The sensor would work similarly to a carbon monoxide detector, observing air flow in real-time in order to warn occupants of the threat.

Senseware already uses "Internet of Things Architecture", offering smart products to monitor a building's various systems, including air quality. Small studies, including one published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and directives from the World Health Organization and the Environmental Protection Agency have noted the correlation between COVID spread and aerosolized virus particles recirculated via HVAC systems.
In addition to detecting the coronavirus pathogen, the company's COVID-monitoring component will also deploy ACT Global disinfectant and Healthe UV lighting to attack the virus particles. Senseware is aiming to have the product ready for commercial use in October.
