Frequently Asked Questions

Performance

How long does it take to detoxify the air in a room?

The time it takes to detoxify a room depends on various factors, such as room size, air circulation and whether windows or doors are open or closed.

As a rough guide, in a 4x4m room with no open windows or doors, it will take approximately 24-36 hours to detoxify the air in the room to a 95-99% level.

How safe is the VActive Gel?

The VBreathe Tasman was independently tested by AsureQuality and is Certified 100% safe to be used in food areas.

How does it reduce bacteria, viruses and mould?

Our all-natural, child-safe, pet-safe and food-safe VActive Gel contains a unique blend of Australian Essential oils which are expelled in vapour form into the surrounding air, to reduce harmful indoor microbes and toxins that are airborne or on surfaces. They do this by encapsulating airborne bacteria, mould and viruses and starves these harmful pathogens of oxygen which inhibits their replication and lifespan.

How does it work against flies and mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes and flies are deterred to enter the area where the Tasman is operating because they do not like the all- natural VActive vapours as one of the active ingredients is Tea Tree so they leave the protected area.

Smart Sensors

How does the VBreathe Tasman detect mould?

Using a combination of data from the Temperature and Humidity sensors to detect the dew point, the device will alter the fan speed to remove mould when in Automatic mode.

How does the VBreathe Tasman detect poisonous gases?

The VBreathe Tasman’s smart sensors are periodically – once every 10 minutes – checking the air for Carbon Monoxide. The device is also quite sensitive to Hydrogen, and to a much lesser extent, LPG, Methane and airborne alcohol (Ethanol). The sensors do not discriminate between gas types, and will register a metric on the App proportionally to the combined presence of these gases – the Light Ring will not be altered by these gases. Please note that this feature is not intended to be a safety feature – do not use this feature as a poisonous gas alarm.

How does the VBreathe Tasman detect the temperature and humidity?

The VBreathe Tasman has smart temperature and humidity sensors located near the air intake for the HEPA filter.

What does the VBreathe Tasman use WiFi and Bluetooth for?

Bluetooth is used to communicate with the App when you are near your VBreathe Tasman. Currently WiFi is used to update the firmware on your device, in a process that is initiated on your App, using Bluetooth. In the near future, you will be able to control and monitor your devices using the WiFi connection from any location, with the App, over the Internet.

How does the VBreathe Tasman Particle sensor work?

The particle sensor consists of a small chamber that pulls in particles using a tiny fan. Inside this chamber, there are electro-optical sensors tuned to detect particles of different sizes, which then ultimately give a PM2.5 value (quantity of a certain sized particle).

How does the VBreathe Tasman Smart Light ring work?

The Smart Light ring will change colour based on the current PM2.5 levels. Green being good, orange being OK, and red being poor. The Smart Light ring is also used for occasional display of device status; please refer to the Instruction Guide found in the box or alternatively go to the ‘How-To’ page on the VBreathe website.

How does the VBreathe Tasman VActive Gel level sensor work?

The VActive Gel level sensor monitors the weight of the VActive Gel, and reports to the app when the gel is low and needs to be replaced.

How does the VBreathe Tasman HEPA filter sensor work?

The HEPA filter sensor monitors the flow rate of air passing through the HEPA filter, in order to report when the HEPA filter needs to be replaced.

Why does my device sometimes flash yellow after handling or being moved, or after I have inserted a new Gel cartridge?

If the Gel Cartridge has been disturbed for whatever reason, on occasions it can take a small amount of time for the cartridge to settle into an optimal location. During this period, you may see a flashing yellow indication from the Light Ring.
