The Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the importance of continuously monitoring indoor air quality, especially in schools. The Ministère de l’Éducation du Québec has announced in September 2021 the deployment and installation of air quality and comfort parameters sensors in more than 47,000 classrooms across the province.

They need:

  • Reduce maintenance and installation difficulties
  • Monitor CO2, humidity and temperature level at 5 minutes intervals during school hours
  • Create an information system without the use of Wi-Fi or Cellular Internet
The Customer

Assek Technologie

The Solution

Two successful pilot projects provide strong and compelling evidence of LoRaWAN® technology and quick deployment in thousands of schools across Quebec, Canada. In each pilot, Milesight's AM107 indoor air quality sensors were installed rapidly in approximately 30 classrooms, with Assek's software presenting great tools to monitor the air quality in classrooms efficiently. During the pilot projects, Semtech provided Milesight with valuable and helpful advice to achieve a better response for the AM107 to LinkADRReq at the MAC layer, which enhanced the compatibility of the sensors in this project.

Through the course of challenging days, LoRaWAN® technology is promising and cutting-edge. LoRaWAN® devices meet all requirements, including visualized data, multiple environment monitoring, long battery life, fast transmission and high reliability of messages. Wireless solutions are ideal for both modern and historic school buildings. For example, 191 classrooms in Massey-Vanier were equipped with AM107 and 208 IAQ sensors were supplied to Louis-Philippe-Paré. Additionally, it is exciting to witness the transformation of time-honored schools for digital indoor air monitoring, such as Notre-Dame-de-la-Défense (founded in 1933), Notre-Dame-des-Neiges (founded in 1918), etc.

With comprehensive IAQ data, schools can now prioritize and implement corrective actions to facilitate the healthiness of the learning and working environment. Moreover, the solution could soon be integrated with HVAC systems to automatically ensure good IAQ standard. As one of the first LoRaWAN® mass deployment projects in Canada, it will certainly be an inspiring example for education systems within North America and worldwide.
