Lightning Talk: microclimate.network - Open Sensor Platform for an Improved Outdoor Environment
Microclimate.network is an open platform for microclimate, where you can share and monitor air temperature, relative humidity and air pressure. Based on real-time measurements we offer free valuable insights for all users.
The platform features real-time insights such as frost risk, heat island potential and heatwave mitigation.
In order to expand our network we are open to including DIY and 3rd party sensors and also offer cost-effective certified MicroClimate sensors.
