The non-compliance with the ambient air quality standards in hospitals as well as in all working settings can cause possible adverse effects on health of people. It is extremely important to monitor public exposure of air pollutant contaminants in order to prevent air quality related emergencies such as heavy smoke from fires or toxic releases. In this paper a wireless device for monitoring air quality is presented. Each node, based on commercial gas sensor arrays and a ZigBee wireless network interface, is local powered by plugging it into a generic light socket. No wiring is required for data transmission. Air data measured by nodes are delivered via ZigBee network to a database station where different technical analyses can be used to obtain pollutant dispersion information. This system can be used for monitoring and classifying Hazardous Air Pollutants in various places: laboratories, offices and operating rooms. Thus, the wireless electronic nose approach aims at strengthening its potential for automatic environment monitoring with regard to many industrial applications too.
