As well as its commercial offerings, Hux offers a range of educational services to help educators, students and researchers better understand interior environments.
It's no wonder Hux has been touted as ‘the future of building management’.

Hux has pioneered the thinking around how to approach building optimisation. The development of an entirely new way to understand interior spaces, and resolve the problem within them.

HuxConnect is a environmental monitoring service designed to be simple to deploy and collects rich data for future manipulation. It has broad scope for use within an educational context.

As reliance on quality environmental data will shape societies and the policies that govern them, understanding complex information sets will continue to be a valuable skill.

Hux already has been engaged to provide hardware for undergraduate and secondary school curriculum.

A discounted pricing model is offered for educational services, subject to certain criteria.

Hux is keen to build long term partnerships with educational institutions to foster a better understanding of building design and efficiency.

For example, students can use the HuxConnect service to understand:

  • Building design
  • Insulation properties
  • Thermal mass
  • Light levels
  • Building optimisation
  • Ventilation
  • Environmental impact on the the human body
  • Documenting issues and change
  • Business case studies understand cost / benetfit for infrastructure purchases
  • Perceived comfort
  • Regulation benchmarks
  • Energy rating systems

Secondary Schools

Hux Connect provides all the requirements of a comprehensive STEM curriculum. Built on open source Arduino and Raspberry Pi technology, Hux’s hardware is a short leap from the hardware, concepts and programming that is conducted as part of the modern computing curriculum.

The data Hux connect generates is a perfect example of how ‘big data’ is collected and analysed. This data is collecting within the school building, so provides real context for the students, which drives engagement with the subject matter.

Real Data, Real understanding

The HuxConnect service provides real-time data for analysis, other experiments can be held in conjunction with the Hux Connect service.


Case Study

Patterson River Secondary College

This Victorian state school is using Hux Connect to provide a curriculum material and also observe the health and comfort of the school building stock.

Not just for Students

School facilities managers and School management can also benefit from the understanding of the shortcomings of the school’s buildings and how they could be improved to facilitate greater comfort, efficiency and student productivity.

The functions of the building optimisation services for Hux include the following:

  • Notifications (SMS or email) to selected staff about environmental thresholds being reached.

    For example, a school princpal could be notified when an indoor common area rises above 1000ppm CO₂ or above 35C and repond accordingly.

  • The provision of performance of building efficiency or comfort reports of ever time.

Tertiary Institutions

Having already supplied the Hux Connect service to one ‘Group of Eight’ University, the HuxConnect service can be deployed by educators, students and researchers as the application requires.

The HuxConnect service excels in its ease of use and rich enironmental data, comparing accross multiple sites in real-time. Using multiple account management, Tutors and program managers may review student accounts with permission based feature sets.

As per all Hux service provisions, training and support is provided so that maximum benefit can be achieved.
