air alert : Cookeville TN

This is a project we worked on for local company Eagle Engineering. Air alert is similar to a smoke alarm, but instead of detecting fires, it is designed to detect the presence of illegal substances such as methamphetamine, marijuana smoke, or even cigarette smoke. The device connects to the internet wirelessly, is constantly monitored, and can trigger an alert to local authorities in case of an emergency.  My job was to take an existing circuit board and create a design for a wall mounted case. The case needed to be somewhat tamper proof, have holes to provide adequate ventilation, and be aesthetically pleasing. We created 3D prototypes at various steps along the development cycle and created a short run of rapid prototypes to provide cases for in-field testing. The pictures here show three different case concepts
