Become a PlanetWatcher

Time to go…indoors!

Time to go…indoors!

Dear PlanetWatchers, 

As explained in our White Paper, improving indoor air quality is key for human health since people spend most of their time inside. This is why we encourage PlanetWatchers to keep track of how clean the air they breathe is in their homes, offices, or wherever they spend time indoors.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve finally approved our new PlanetWatch Type 3 device for monitoring indoor air quality.

PlanetWatch Type 3 license holders worldwide will be able to get this device by the end of September.

Kaiterra’s Sensedge Mini is a compact, reliable device easy to set up and to connect to WiFi networks that can stream data to PlanetWatch on temperature, humidity, particulate matter, Volatile Organic Compounds and CO2. 

A Certified Device for a Global Standard

Sensedge Mini is a RESET Grade B certified device. RESET is a set of standards and assessment tools & services for developing actionable, long-term strategies to improve health and sustainability for the built environment. In particular, RESET have pioneered a global standard to evaluate and benchmark Indoor Air Quality. This means that 

by using RESET-certified devices as Type 3 sensors, PlanetWatchers will help us build a highly valuable, unique dataset, allowing the comparison of indoor air quality in different venues across the world.

Such data will be invaluable from a scientific point of view. Take a look at the first published scientific paper on indoor air quality featuring PlanetWatch as well as academic authors.

Of course, data will always be collected anonymously, unless sensor owners allow us to disclose their details.

When? Where? How much?

We’re currently finalizing negotiations with Kaiterra to ensure PlanetWatchers worldwide get Sensedge Mini devices at a special price.

We’re confident we’ll be able to sell at least 500 of these devices to holders of Planetwatch Type 3 Licenses globally by the end of September 2021. Buying your license early will bring you right at the top of the waiting list allowing you to get your device in no time.

The price is expected to be around 500 euro, plus VAT for EU-based PlanetWatchers, so approximately 600 euro all-inclusive. If you’re based outside the EU you won’t be charged VAT; however, we might need to charge you for shipping and customs duties, so the final price is likely to be a bit higher than the EU all-inclusive price. 

Sensors will be payable in PLANETS. By the time we’ll be ready to sell, we expect PLANETS to become available across the world. If this isn’t the case, we’ll allow fiat payments for non-European Planetwatchers.

Keep watching the Planet, including your own home 🙂

  1. Hi so is this globally for US as well. The reason is that I want to purchase one type 3 sensor and the license but I am unsure if this just for EU since there is only pricing in EUROS for now. Thank you very much!

  2. If I’m able to obtain this exact device outside of Planetwatch, will it be eligible to be used with the license?

    1. Hi, as soon as the integration with our system will be completed, you can use a Type 3 sensor purchased not directly from PlanetWatch with our Type 3 license.
      Please note that if you do it, we are not responsible for sensors purchased in another website.
