What is Environmental Monitoring?

All businesses need to minimise and manage their effect on the environment. Many also need to manage their environment’s effect on them.

IoT networked sensors provide easy and accurate monitoring of air quality, temperature, humidity, soil moisture, noise and light (outdoors and indoors), in small areas and at scale.

They’re being used to meet environmental and safety regulations but also to remotely manage resources and improve operational efficiencies.
