#358 CO2 Cuckoo Clock for schools and businesses (Why not eCO2?)

In video #300, I postulated that each classroom should have a CO2 sensor against sleepiness. For a few days, we have a second reason that probably created a better business case for your project: The fear of a next lockdown might convince the school and other managers more because CO2 measurements in rooms can also reduce aerosols in the air. I also show why eCO2 sensors are not a good idea for this purpose.
