Note: This installation manual can be applied to Spaceti Environmental sensors (part number: SC20L2V100, SC20L2V110 etc.).


Motivation: In order to enable monitoring of the quality of the environment within Spaceti system (and providing data from the real environment), it’s necessary to install environmental sensors into a physical environment.

Sensor coverage and placement

It’s better to define sensor coverage based on the number of people, rather than sq. meters.

Recommended coverage (based on wellbeing studies) is:

  • pc. of Environmental sensor per 10 - 25 people in open-space (depends on density)

  • pc. of Environmental sensor in every small meeting room

  • 1 - N pcs. of Environmental sensors in every big meeting room (follow placement in case A)

Note: The number of sensors can be adjusted by the customer.

Overall, Environmental sensors should be installed in the following way:

  • close to people

  • in “vertical” position (PIC)

  • installation height - approx. 180 cm

  • away from direct sunlight

  • away from the HVAC air vents (heating, cooling)

Example of placement

Total sq. m = ~620 sq. m
Number of seats in open - space = ~65
Number of meeting rooms = 6

Total number of sensors = 14

Warning: For enabling all features of Spaceti system, it’s necesarry to have installed Spaceti connectivity HUBs in space and all sensors should be within a coverage. Please see Sensor Gateway installation.

List of steps:

  1. Choosing a suitable installation spot

  2. Cleaning the surface

  3. Placing Devices to the specific places

  4. Adding into system

  5. Installation

  6. Calibration

  7. Validation

Installation process:

1. Choosing the proper installation spot

  • Choose the proper place as described in section SENSOR COVERAGE AND PLACEMENT, or

  • follow the map with suggested Environmental sensors' placement (provided by Spaceti team)

2. Cleaning the surface

  • In the case of plastic, glass, metal or wood material the surface must be cleaned with alcohol cleaner MEC3. Clean approximately 10x10cm around the deploy spot.

  • In the case of concrete or painted walls clean the surface by the dry tissue or cloth.

  • Allow the surface to dry.

3. Placing devices to the specific places

  • Simply put the device MEC1 to the place on what device should be installed. Place the device upside down to be ready for QR scan into the system.

4. Adding devices into the system

  • Use Spaceti deploy app SW1 or Spaceti map editor SW2 for deploying device into the system.

Warning: Follow manual Map Editor user guide for detailed process of how to use SW1 or SW2.

5. Installation

Plug the platform MEC2 into device MEC1 according to images.

  • Position the platform in the way that the beak on the MEC1 part snaps into the recess of the MEC2 part.

  • On the platform, MEC2 and the bottom of the box MEC1 is cast text TOP and arrow. The two arrows must be facing each other. See image.

  • For YYY and ZZZ version of the surface remove cover of the proper sticker and stick the device to the chosen spot. Use at least 5s of hard pressure to the device to avoid falling down.

  • Turn the sensor on by releasing the battery contact blocking foil. Make sure the foil does not get stuck at the edge of the hole, it may cause the lead to get foil ripped. In case of faulty released foil replace the device for another one.

Note: The sensor can be “unbuckled” from the platform any time using TL1. Follow Spaceti Smart Stone uninstallation manual.

6. Calibration

  • There is an automatic calibration process in Spaceti Wellbeing sensors. No external calibration needed.

  • Please note that due to the calibration process, there can be a value 450 ppm for 24 hours without any change. System is being calibrated during the night (to find the lowest CO2 concentration) = it’s not an issue.

7. Validation

  • Installation needs to be checked after all devices are installed. This can be done in Spaceti dashboard.

  • all sensors are sending valid data (different from value 0 ppm)

  • no sensor is “gray” (= not sending data)

Warning: If some sensor is not sending data (no value in the last 30 minutes period), it’s necessary to check HUB coverage.

If sensor gray:

  • Check that foil is removed

  • when the foil is removed, check if this specific sensor is sending messages (use Papertrail logging system). If no messages were sent there can be two causes of this issue:

  1. Device problem itself. Resolve it by changing this device for the new one. It is also should be redeployed in the Spaceti system!

  2. Gateway coverage problem. Try moving Gateway closer or add another one to this floor. For detailed information about the Spaceti monitoring system, follow Papertrail user guide user guide.
