Exposure to polluted air can lead to short-term and long-term health issues — particularly for those living in low-income and communities of color that are disproportionately impacted by air pollution from sources such as major highways, industrial operations, and ports with diesel truck operations.
These zones — sometimes referred to as air pollution hotspots — can benefit from implementing low-cost, high-resolution air quality monitoring networks.
No separate software purchase. No add-on warranties. No unexpected expenses.
With one upfront service, we’re giving you the affordability, flexibility, and autonomy to eliminate all of your air quality blind spots.
Self-powered Clarity Node-S air quality monitoring hardware measures PM₂.₅ and NO₂ and serves as a platform for additional modules such as Wind, Black Carbon, and Ozone.
Data access via Clarity Dashboard, REST API, and Clarity OpenMap to visualize pollutant levels

“We're a nonprofit, so we don't have a ton of capacity to mess around with tech. Clarity devices are easy to deploy and solar-powered, so you can put them in parks, on rooftops, wherever — and they just work. We can focus on working with our community members.”
"Air quality is a hidden issue in the sense that it's become so embedded in aspects of urban life in San Francisco. It can be a challenge for residents who have been living in the neighborhood for a long time to articulate what their air quality issues are. Some have just accepted it as a way of life.”
"So many public health issues can be traced back to the air people are breathing during their everyday lives - not just during wildfires when air quality is visibly poor.”
More than 40% of Americans — over 137 million people — are living in places with failing grades for unhealthy levels of particle pollution or ozone. According to the 2022 State of the Air report, some minorities and other disadvantaged social groups are more at risk than others:
Are 3.6 times more likely than white people to live in a county with 3 failing grades.
One in ten people exposed to unsafe air pollution live in extreme poverty.
More than 90% of the world’s children breathe toxic air every day.
Conditions like asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cardiovascular disease, and pregnancy.
Governments are regularly launching funding programs to offer financial support to communities. At Clarity, we can assist you in addressing these issues by providing you with real-time ambient pollutant measurements and obtaining government funding for your environmental justice initiatives.
