What do the whare sensors measure?

The Whare sensors measure temperature, humidity and the dashboard calculates the dew point index.

Dew point index is the temperature at which the moisture in the air cools so much it condensates and collects on the surfaces in a room. If you have woken up with the top of your bed and dresser damp, this is what has occurred.

With temperature and humidity readings we compare those against WHO recommendations for healthy homes and tell you if your room is going to make you sick via notifications to your phone.

Did you know? That humidity over 60% means that mould is growing in your home and is probably releasing spores into the air? Thats what triggers allergic reactions like coughing, sneezing and skin irritation, which may also trigger asthma.

How Manawa: Smart home sensors work

Install Manawa sensors where you think you have temperature or humidity problems, this is usually bedrooms, living rooms or bathrooms.

The sensors take temperature and humidity readings every 10 minutes. Don't worry 1 coin battery (comes with each sensor) will last for 3 years.

The sensors push the data to the gateway which is connect to the internet and to our dashboard. The dashboard interprets the data into possible physical and mental health impacts as well as property impacts.
