Dual Safety System
Passive InfraRed Sensor (PIR)
* Can be disabled in-app
Heat detected within 20 feet cuts off UV sanitization
Motion detected within 10 feet cuts off UV sanitization
Uvio Dual Safety System
Because UVC light can be harmful if directly exposed to the skin or eyes, Uvio has a Dual Sensor System to ensure that no one gets exposed to the potentially harmful light, just in case someone is in the building after hours when the lights are activated.
First, there is a Passive Infrared Sensor that detects body heat within 20 feet away, which will automatically shut the light off.
Second, there is a Microwave Sensor, which is a proximity sensor that automatically shuts the light off with any detected motion within 10 feet.
Both distances are well within the margin of safety for UVC direct exposure, which based on Uvio’s light intensity, is 6 feet.
Uvio’s redundant system helps to guarantee that no one will get exposed to potentially harmful UVC light.
