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.
We've been able to run multiple colocation studies with regulatory-grade reference stations during this project. At the beginning of the deployment, we colocated all of the devices that would be included in the network with a reference station in Sacramento. 14 months into the project, we were also able to colocate with the air quality management district’s rooftop lab in San Pablo. These studies demonstrated a very high degree of precision for PM_._ measurements, allowing Clarity to apply advanced calibration techniques that improve data accuracy when compared with reference instruments.
We work mainly with the local authorities for deploying the Node-S devices — with the local council. The community has been really helpful and has made a big difference. The majority of the Nodes are up on street lamps around the town.
“We chose Clarity because they provided up-to-date, local, scientifically-backed, and relevant data to make decisions about whether to keep students inside. Because of the geography and demographics in our county, the official air monitoring stations are about an hour away with hills in between, providing irrelevant data. We would have poor air quality and the official stations would be cleared; or the official stations would show heavy particulate levels and we would have clean air."
"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.”
"We couldn’t have done it with any other air quality monitoring solution. With their unique ability to operate off-grid, Clarity’s Node-S provided the ability to site our air quality monitors in the locations that mattered most to community members in Richmond. The data are reliable, real-time, and hyperlocal, and our network is now being used as a blueprint for AB 617, a landmark regulation that empowers communities to take control of air pollution."
“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.”
