The Smart Sash uses several sensors to monitor the usage of a chemical fume hood.

The onboard sensors determine the sash height as well as occupancy in front of the hood. A buzzer built into the device will sound when the sash is left open and unattended (in a similar fashion to how your fridge reminds you to close it). All this information about the usage of the fume hood is transmitted via LoRaWAN to a secure AWS cloud backhaul every 15 minutes. The device is entirely battery powered. The data is stored, analysed and displayed on custom dashboards.
