ROCIS Low Cost Monitoring Project

ROCIS Low Cost Monitoring Project

In September 2015, we launched the Low Cost Monitoring Project (LCMP) as part of the ROCIS Initiative. The purpose of the Low Cost Monitoring Project is to explore and clarify the value and applications for low cost monitoring devices to address indoor air quality.

Monitoring kits are loaned for a 3-week period. The kit includes nine devices to measure particles, CO (carbon monoxide), CO2 (carbon dioxide), radon, temperature, and humidity.

The LCMP objectives are to:

      1) Understand How to Use Monitors to Empower Occupants
      2) Collect Baseline Data to Better Understand Outdoor Pollutant
           impacts on Indoor Air Quality
      3) Explore the Impact of Behavioral and Technical Interventions

We are targeting motivated, knowledgeable occupants, many of whom have been involved with the ROCIS initiative activities as energy, sustainability, health, or housing professionals.

To date we have had over 100 individuals participate in 3-week and longer-term monitoring.

If you are interested in participating in the LCMP, contact Linda Wigington, lwigington1@outlook.com.

Please note: This is not a light-weight investment of time. Please review the Participant Expectations.
