The SV20 Series of Air Quality sensors can be mounted in up to 4 different configurations. The specific configuration will depend on your installation constraints and which sensor readings you find most meaningful.

Wall mounting, between 3-6 ft from floor.

Keep sensor at least 5 ft away from any doors or operable windows.

Vape Detection

Ceiling mounting, no more than 8-9 ft from the ground. If the height is increased, detection will decrease.

If placed in a bathroom, 1 sensor per 2 stalls is recommended. At least 3 feet from vents or walls.
