MESA, Ariz., January 21, 2022 – Iveda (OTCQB: IVDA), the worldwide provider of IvedaAI™ intelligent video search technology, Sentir® video surveillance products, IvedaPinpoint™ and IvedaHome™ IoT (Internet of Things) platforms with smart devices, today announced the launch of its commercial-grade, AI-driven Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) product. This product is the newest addition to Iveda’s smart city portfolio.
“With the prevalence of the COVID-19 virus in our lives and its continuous mutation, we may have to assume that it’s not going away,” said David Ly, CEO of Iveda. “Common hygiene, social distancing and masking may not be enough to minimize the spread of the virus. As such, we offer a sensible solution to potentially irradiate all kinds of bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19.”
Iveda’s solution adds UV lights to standard HVAC vents for quick, easy and inexpensive deployment to homes and commercial buildings. Leveraging existing air circulation system, Iveda Smart UVC vents will disinfect the air by irradiating UV light on the passing air. This eliminates manually disinfecting offices, meeting rooms and other work spaces.
Until herd immunity through vaccination and previous infections is achieved, technologies like Iveda Smart UVC in mass deployments can make a significant difference in getting back to some semblance of normalcy, especially in the workplace.
In a study, conducted at the University of Milan and the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics, researchers have found that it is possible to completely inactivate COVID-19 virus using short wavelength Ultraviolet (UVC) Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI).
“From our engagements with our partners, specifically in South Africa and the Middle East, we are hearing that consumer interest has increased not only in volume, but in the degree of urgency as we turn the corner into post-lockdown mode,” added Ly.
As businesses reopen, many companies are exploring ways to reassure employees that they are being creative in ensuring their safety in the workplace. Iveda Smart UVC technology will help address this concern over air quality.
“We expect to see more collaborations in this area, especially in the current environment. UVC manufacturers will need to find partners within the industry to offer end-user solutions to the market that can safely and quickly bolt on to existing infrastructure without requiring expensive remodeling or replacement of current HVAC systems,” said Ly.
According to Allied Markets Research, in 2021, the UV disinfection equipment market grew to USD 4.75 billion and is estimated to grow to USD 8.46 billion in 2025. Iveda is targeting the surface sterilization and air sterilization/cleaning segments which will grow from USD 2.5 billion in 2022 to USD 4 billion in 2025.
“This is not just another UV light product. We added digital technology to an everyday piece of metal or plastic, transforming it into a smart anti-virus system. This becomes an integral component of our smart power solution,” , said Sid Sung, president of Iveda. “It’s a real-world example of what digital transformation means.”
