Birdie - Intimate facts

Why is Birdie sensitive to CO2?

When there is too much CO2 indoors, it can mess with your focus, decision-making, and staying awake. You might get headaches, feel dizzy or nauseous, and just feel off. High CO2 levels can also make you more likely to get sick and make the air feel gross.

Too much CO2 means bad ventilation, which can lead to mold, dust, and chemicals building up. This can be bad for your health over time.

Birdie keeps an eye on CO2 levels and triggers you to open one or more windows to make sure there's enough fresh air, which is super important for everyone’s health and comfort.

Why does Birdie faint?

Birdie faints because the CO2 level within your space is too high for comfort. High CO2 levels serve as a clear indicator of urgent need for ventilation. Open one or more windows to exchange high CO2 levels with some fresh air!

 

 

 

Do I need a flock of Birdies?

As a general guideline, one Birdie is designed to effectively cover a room of up to 100m².

We recommend installing Birdie in the room where you spend most of your time.

In cases of multiple floors or enclosed spaces, such as bedrooms, home office, etc. we recommend placing one Birdie on each floor or in each closed-off room for optimal monitoring.

How does Birdie behave?

Birdie faints when CO2 exceeds 1,000 ppm for 10 minutes and is magically revived when CO2 drops below 800 ppm.

Birdie then takes a two-hour rest to recover from the journey before it reports for duty again. This as it will take time for CO2 to potentially buildup again and to save battery consumption.

Where does Birdie feel most at home? (Installation)

Birdies like to be near their owners, ensuring they can alert you when indoor air quality is poor, and ventilation needed.

Birdies flourish in a variety of indoor settings, from living rooms and bedrooms to classrooms and offices, enabling an optimal environment wherever you require a breath of fresh air.

Nesting Birdies at a height between 120cm to 170cm offers the optimal working environment for Birdies.

What drives Birdie?

Birdie is fed by a rechargeable battery which will keep it flying for up to six months, depended on how often Birdie faints.

It takes Birdie around 4 hours to finish a full meal (recharging the battery) applying a USB-C cable.

Birdie will inform you when it is time for the next meal (recharge) by dropping to a horizontal nine o'clock position.

How is Birdie’s physical constitution?

Birdie's ECO-Conscious shines as it it's crafted from 100% recycled plastics and
comes with a rechargeable battery, a testament to Birdie’s unyielding commitment
to environmental responsibility.

Birdie navigates up and down applying a Swiss state-of-the-art and awarding
winning CO2-sensor.

Is Birdie competing with conventional air purifiers?

Birdie tackles what traditional air purifiers miss: CO2 levels.

Unlike conventional purifiers that focus on particles and certain gases,
Birdie ensures CO2 is not overlooked.

When it's time to refresh the air, Birdie signals you, working seamlessly
alongside conventional air purifiers.

How did Birdie hatch?

Birdie® is the brainchild of Andreas Kofoed Sørensen (right) & Hans Høite Augustenborg (left).

What began as a hobby-project, hatched into a full-time occupation for the two friends
who are now on a mission to improve indoor air quality by releasing Birdies in millions
of homes, offices and schools around the world.
