In the face of climate change and increasing environmental disasters like wildfires, there is a growing need for resilient air quality monitoring infrastructure. Traditional air quality monitors often rely on vulnerable infrastructures like WiFi and electrical grids, which can easily fail during disasters, leaving us without accurate information about air quality.
To address this challenge, low-cost air sensors provide a cost-effective solution. Air quality sensor networks can provide accurate, local, real-time air pollution data and withstand harsh conditions to continue operating even when power and internet connectivity infrastructures fail.
With an air quality sensor network you can:
The Wildfire Smoke and Emergency Response Air Monitoring Kit is a comprehensive solution designed to provide vital air quality information during wildfires and other emergency air pollution events. This all-in-one kit includes everything you need to monitor air quality and respond effectively to emergencies.
The kit consists of four Clarity Node-S air quality sensors, specifically calibrated to detect PM2.5 particles, which are known to be prevalent in wildfire smoke.
In this webinar, you'll hear from experts who have been at the forefront of combating the public health impacts of air pollution over fire season. Discover how high-resolution air quality data is being used to better protect communities across the United States.
You’ll learn about innovative projects like Bill Hayes in Boulder, Colorado and Janice Lam Snyder in Sacramento, California, which leverage data to reduce public health and the impacts of air pollution episodes like wildfire smoke events.
"After the Marshall fire we installed a total of 22 monitors in the burn area. The Node-S is solar powered, has impressive battery-life and transmits data via cellular network. That means we could put these monitors anywhere that the sun shines and that you can make a cell call."
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.
*Note: : If you don't have an air conditioner, staying inside with the windows closed may be dangerous in extremely hot weather. If you are hot, go someplace with air conditioning or check with your local government to find out if cooling centers are available in your community.
