Smart Vent: Doesn’t Always Have to Be Switched On

This invention aims to replace older and ‘always-on’ ventilation and extractor fan units with a system that only operates when necessary. The Smart Vent will monitor humidity and temperature to determine when it should be in operation. This feedback allows intermittent essential use instead of continuous operation. Not only does this minimise the energy consumption of the system (especially when considering larger commercial fan and ventilator systems), but it results in an increased lifespan of the units due to minimised wear and tear.
