SACRAMENTO, Calif., BOONTON, N.J., and ESPOO, Finland, January 4, 2023— McWong International, a leading innovator in Bluetooth® mesh technology, has teamed with IntelliSafe IAQ and Casambi to deliver a highly safe and effective UVC germicidal lighting solution for Kinnelon High School in north New Jersey.
Kinnelon High School, with an enrollment of approximately 600 students and 60 full time staff, typically operates a fulltime academic schedule as well as numerous extracurricular activities such as athletics, student club meetings and community events. Shared spaces include classrooms, computer rooms and labs, and cafeterias. Like other public high schools, the campus experienced significant disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic, so when federal funding became available, the school leadership explored solutions for ensuring ongoing sanitizing systems for shared learning spaces that would also improve the facility’s indoor air quality.
IntelliSafe IAQ’s engineered design, consisting of multiple hybrid UVC air-purifier and whole room disinfection fixtures with embedded McWong occupancy sensors and Casambi wireless mesh interface, resides in the facility’s classrooms, cafeterias, computer labs and other shared learning spaces alongside the regular general lighting. These are installed between the rows of regular direct/indirect pendant lighting and operate on the same electrical circuits without requiring new or additional electrical wiring. During the day, the fixtures provide air filtration while during the nighttime hours, they provide whole-room direct UVC disinfection treatments.
“Using the McWong fixture integrated hardware with Casambi wireless mesh enabled the project team to quickly and cost-effectively deploy the solution for Kinnelon High School,” notes Dan Litvin, CMO of IntelliSafe IAQ. “The functionality and app interface make it so easy to change settings or schedules. Both the project team and the school facilities team have the greatest confidence in this deployment.”
“Our collaboration with IntelliSafe IAQ and Casambi offers a versatile and cost-effective solution for institutions looking for ways to improve indoor air quality and protect occupants from health hazards,” reflects Stephen Zhou, Executive Vice President at McWong International. “We’re pleased to offer this to the marketplace at such a timely moment.”
“Partnering with IntelliSafe IAQ and McWong on the Kinnelon High School project is a great example of how collaboration drives innovation in wireless control solutions,” Travis Laib, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Casambi.
