Sensor Installation

Where should I install the sensors?

To obtain the most accurate room measurements, the sensors should be placed in the least ventilated location possible, away from windows. The sensors should not be exposed to direct sunlight. Make sure that the sensors are mounted high enough on the wall so that the traffic light is clearly visible to the room occupants. For detailed installation instructions, please click here. RYSTA also offers an installation service for customers in Germany.

How many sensors do I need per room?

How many sensors are needed depends on the room size. In schools, most classrooms require only 1 sensor. In large rooms with more than 30 students, 2 sensors may be needed. Generally, for rooms larger than 50m2, two or more sensors are needed to adequately cover them. Contact the RYSTA team if you are insecure.

Do I need to register for a dashboard?

Yes, to use the dashboard, you must be registered with your email address. Then you will receive a password to access the dashboard.

Do I need a WIFI connection to use the sensor?

The traffic light warning system also works without Wifi. Here the sensor only measures CO₂. If you want to see all climate data of your room, you need to be connected to WIFI. For information on how to connect RYSTA to your WIFI, click here.

If we already have air filters, can CO₂ traffic lights still help?

Yes, CO₂ sensors are an excellent complement to air filters. CO₂ sensors have other benefits that air filters do not. RYSTA Protect helps improve concentration and cognitive function.

Air Quality

Why is indoor air quality important?

We spend 90% of our time indoors and do not know what is in our air. Indoor air quality can be up to 5x worse than normal outdoor air. This is due to the accumulation of pollutants, including CO₂. CO₂ makes us sleepy and reduces our cognitive abilities. In this case, it is important to ventilate thoroughly to remove CO₂ from the air.

How does ventilation improve the qir quality?

Over time, indoor air becomes contaminated with pollutants, CO₂ and many other harmful particles that can have a negative impact on our health. Ventilation can replace the polluted air with outside air, which usually contains much fewer pollutants.
