ClevAIR is a combination of hardware and cloud-based software for optimizing and controlling ventilation systems. It ensures a better indoor climate combined with reduced power consumption. Its core purpose is to cut costs.
ClevAIR is the brain incorporated in your infrastructure’s central nervous system that enables your building to pinpoint exactly what is wrong, when there’s something wrong, and instantly inform the right person to fix the problem. It even prepares for the next day’s operations by checking the weather forecast.
ClevAIR was created to strike a much-required firm balance between a good indoor climate and the money spent to attain it. It is a hands-on product born out of the rising IoT, and digital, tide. The technical requirements and power used for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) are increasing, and statistics show that this trend will continue.
On the other hand, we also have to make financial and environmental considerations to make sure the costs connected, and our carbon footprint, doesn't skyrocket. Collecting vast amounts of internal and external data, analyzing it with machine learning and delivering simple and crystal clear results to you.
ClevAIR is targeted for HVAC in office buildings, commercial buildings, industrial buildings, public buildings and similar structures. To get a fast return on investment in Norway we recommend to use it on buildings larger than 2,000 m2. In other countries the ROI will already be satisfactory on smaller buildings due to higher power costs.
Optimizing means less power consumption and hence lower power bills
It is much cheaper to modernize existing HVAC systems than install a new one
Modern remote control tools reduce waste
Real-time alerts cut downtime and unnecessary troubleshooting time
Data-driven analysis reveals true bottlenecks and ensures qualified replacements
In most buildings the power supplied still has elements from non-renewable energy sources and hence each kWh spent has a carbon footprint. Reducing your power consumption means reducing your business’ carbon footprint.
The remote feature for control and analysis significantly reduces the need to be on location, reducing time and money spent on transport, together with the emissions caused by it.

We are evolving at an extraordinary speed towards automation and cloud-based digitization. For many ClevAIR is their first step towards the fully automated building.
Cutting costs and wasted time on transport by being able to remote control and supervise all buildings on one single dashboard.
This move forwards facilitates meeting the market demands on being eco friendly and cost efficient as well.
ClevAIR is easy to use and the installation is plug-and-play
- installation takes about 15 minutes
- type in username and password
- = you’re up and running
- no hassle with firewall
- ClevAIR operates over mobile internet, if needed
- one of the markets most secure encryptions
ClevAIR is compatible with most of the standard ventilation systems supplied in the last decades. It needs to have a controller with a communication port. E.g. TCP ethernet, modbus RTU (serial) or Bacnet IP. If you’re not sure, contact us or your service provider to find out.
Yes, certainly. ClevAIR is brand and model independent and translates the information from the different systems into uniform information. All your systems will be displayed on the same dashboard with a tab for each building.
Yes. Sometimes there is no internet at the location of the ventilation system. We can set it up with mobile internet. There will be an extra monthly cost to cover the subscription for the mobile internet.
Only if you want to. Most of the users of ClevAIR already have maintenance contracts with a ventilation service provider. In these cases the service provider handles the management and surveillance from ClevAIR for the customers convenience.
It is all about working smarter. Our machine learning algorithms makes the ventilation system able to do a better job than before but at lower power consumption. When the ventilation system, through ClevAIR, can check the weather forecast it can start planning operations for the next hours. Avoiding overheated buildings in sunny weather or too cold buildings when the winter suddenly appears. This planning also helps avoiding the ultra expensive power consumption peaks.
No. All buildings are gathered in the same dashboard. You name each building as you please and switch between them with the tabs on the dashboard. One tab for each building.
It depends on how the different systems are connected. On some locations the systems are already connected together and in these cases one ClevAIR controller is enough to cover all. If the systems are not connected it is normally cheaper to get one ClevAIR controller for each instead of paying for the installation of cables between the systems.
The standard is one subscription fee for each ClevAIR controller. The ROI is still good as each subscription saves power consumption on the connected ventilation system. We provide discounts on the subscription fee when there are a need of two or more ClevAIR controllers to one building. Contact us for volume discounts.
When the ventilation system, through ClevAIR, can check the weather forecast it can start planning operations for the next hours. Avoiding overheated buildings in sunny weather or too cold buildings when the winter suddenly appears. This planning also helps avoiding the ultra expensive power consumption peaks. In a building there is a lot of mass, concrete, steel etc that gets heated or cooled down and it takes some time before you can register this on the indoor temperature. Many buildings has outdoor temperature and light sensors but these only measure the situation “right now”.
Many experience that the building is firing up the ovens from the night cold, still when the sun is shining and the outdoor temperature is rising. The result is that it gets too warm inside and that the ventilation system is not dimensioned to handle this and the indoor temperature gets too high. Especially in the afternoon at the top floors. With ClevAIR the buildings get information to plan for at least the next 24 hours, depending on the quality of the weather forecast off course.
Yes. We have armoured the communication and cloud storage with one of the markets most secure encryptions.
No. ClevAIR works just fine without the need of any changes in settings if you change your firewall, internet provider etc.
ClevAIR is mainly sold through ventilation service providers and automation electricians. Contact your service provider for a quote or drop us a line to find your closest provider.
It depends on the make and model. Look for a communication port. Normally it can be used on systems that are between 25 and 15 years old and newer.
Something you and we all should prepare for. It is short for the Internet of Things. Modern production systems, buildings, factories, machines and even your home supplies are producing vast amounts of data. Just a single jet engine produces five hundred gigabytes of data, per flight ! The challenge is to gather all this data, make sense of it all and get information you can act and improve on. IoT is the connection of all these, and more, things. ClevAIR is a pure IoT product, connecting your existing infrastructure to tear aside the veil of complex processes, discovering the true bottlenecks and fixing them.
