The uHoo Aura, the world’s most comprehensive indoor environmental monitoring solution for commercial and industrial buildings, developed by uHoo, has won the PropertyGuru Asia Real Estate Summit’s (ARES) Tech Innovation Award. The PropertyGuru Tech Innovation Award recognizes and celebrates the most outstanding tech companies who are revolutionizing the real estate industry today. The award has been designed to showcase today’s creative thinkers and game-changers that set a benchmark of excellence.
“Winning the PropertyGuru Tech Innovation Award further validates our solution and the impact it has locally and on the region in helping Southeast Asian companies become greener and more sustainable.” Dustin Jefferson Onghanseng, uHoo’s Co-Founder and CEO, stated.
ARES by the PropertyGuru Group, the leading property technology company in SouthEast Asia, celebrates the brightest innovators and their hardwork and commitment to making remarkable change within the property technology landscape. With ‘Data Revolution’ as this year’s theme, ARES features a live chat section, two exhibition halls and 30 interactive booths, gathering more than 30 real estate and technology decision-makers, sustainability and climate stewards and start-up innovators from across the globe. Focusing on various topics and related fields, the virtual event is divided into four different segments—data landscape, accessible data, sustainable development, and data innovation.
The operations of the built environment contribute to 28% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while approximately 90% of the costs of operating a building are attributed to people. As the world continues to address climate issues, uHoo winning this award emphasizes the ever increasing importance of ESG and sustainability in how companies operate. By providing data-driven solutions and processes, uHoo is able to help ensure the health and well-being of building occupants and optimize energy consumption of the built environment to reduce its carbon footprint.
uHoo provides air quality monitoring solutions that help households and commercial and industrial buildings manage their indoor environment. As part of its offerings, the company has developed the uHoo Aura, an environmental quality monitoring and management solution that is designed to provide insights about the condition of the environment by measuring the changes in luminosity, sound and various indoor air quality parameters such as Temperature, Humidity, Carbon Dioxide, Dust, VOCs and more.
To manage the location’s vulnerability to viruses and harmful pathogens, such as the coronavirus, the uHoo Aura comes with the patented uHoo Virus Index that uses a 10-point scoring system that is divided into four categories: Good, Mild, Bad and Severe.
uHoo’s solutions help occupants and commercial real estate managers establish strategies and take actions to eliminate the unwanted impacts of poor indoor air quality, optimize their energy use, be more sustainable and establish data-driven ESG tracking and reporting.
