Abstract

The past two years have been sadly marked by the worldwide spread of the SARS-Cov-19 pandemic. The first line of defense against this and other pandemic threats is to respect interpersonal distances, use masks, and sanitize hands, air, and objects. Some of these countermeasures are becoming part of our daily lives, as they are now considered good practices to reduce the risk of infection and contagion. In this context, we present \emph{Safe Place}, a modular system enabled by \gls{iot} that is designed to improve the safety and healthiness of living environments. %\textcolor{blue}{ This system combines several sensors and actuators produced by different vendors with self-regulating procedures and \gls{ai} algorithms to limit the spread of viruses and other pathogens, and increase the quality and comfort offered to people while minimizing the energy consumption.%} We discuss the main objectives of the system and its implementation, showing preliminary results that assess its potentials in enhancing the conditions of living and working spaces.
