How to install the Airthings for Business solution

Updated over a week ago

You will find the installation guide in the business manual at

Here is a short step-by-step guide:

  1. You should get an invitation email to your Business Account, if you have not gotten an email (check spam folder), you should contact Do not create your own account at, as that would be a consumer account.

  2. Download the Airthings Business app. Create a building and register the devices. For more details, read this article.

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to register your Hubs first (the best practice is to name them with the room number and room name where they are going to be installed).

  4. Install the Hubs in the rooms where you planned to install them and power them on by plugging the power supply into a power outlet and connecting it to the Hub. Wait for the green cloud icon to be lit. They will now connect to the cloud service and start updating to the latest software version.

  5. Bring the sensors to the rooms where you want to install them, pull the battery tab first so the device is active, and add them using the app. After that, you can install the devices on the wall. For permanent installation, we recommend using a screw to wall-mount. As an alternative, you can use the included 3M command strip (more info about mounting here).

  6. Check that the devices are powered:

    1. Space Plus: Wave in front of the device and you should see a glowing ring.

    2. Space Pro/CO2: Wave in front of the device and the screen should switch.

    3. Space CO2 Mini: Press on the Airthings logo and a light should light up.

  7. Verify with the Business Dashboard. Wait up to 8 hours before the devices connect to the Hubs and start sending data to the Dashboard.

Good to know:

  • The Hub for Business can manage up to 30 Space devices, but we recommend maximizing to 25 to ensure a robust network.

  • It will take 7 days for the TVOC, CO2, and Radon sensors to self-calibrate. During these 7 days, it should be allowed a best-case scenario (i.e. office building is empty)

Where to install the devices

Place the sensor

  • Where you would like to measure the air quality! The device itself is recommended to cover (but not limited to) less than 50 square meters.

  • Within the range of the Hub. SmartLink protocol can easily penetrate 3 thick concrete walls/floors or 10 drywalls in an office building. Old industrial constructions or deep underground areas may be challenging and should be evaluated first.

  • At a height of 1.1 - 1.80m (Breathing Zone)

  • With a screw for permanent installations or the included 3M adhesive for temporary installations.

Avoid placement in proximity to

  • Large metal objects/cabinets

  • Doors or Windows

  • Fresh air supply

  • Sources of heat (i.e. radiators) or humidity (i.e. showers)

  • Outer Walls

  • Direct sunlight

The devices should never be mounted on the ceiling. Ensure that the device cannot fall onto someone or something and cause damage. Products should not be mounted above 2m. Exception is Space CO2 mini, which If absolutely needed, can also be placed > 6 ft (1.8m) above the floor, but in this case, the device must be screwed into the wall.

This indicator should make it easier for you to find an optimum placement.
