Clarity's Air Monitoring Solution is a comprehensive sensing-as-a-service that makes it easier and more cost effective to measure air quality when and where you need it. Each measurement point's annual data license covers everything you need to take action, including:
Calibration requires each device to be co-located with government reference equipment for several weeks before deployment in the field. Field data are manually calibrated and devices are repeatedly co-located for calibration profiles updates, resulting in a resource intensive process with high operational costs and limited ease of use.
Smart Calibration lowers the cost, labor, and time requirements for calibration, significantly simplifying the deployment process. A single Clarity device is co-located with reference equipment for the entire project duration while the remaining devices are concurrently deployed in the field for real-time insights.
We have engaged in projects in 60 Cities across 30+ Countries with more than 20 government co-locations that help us validate our technology. To learn more, read about past and current projects on our blog.
Our technology is trusted by leading public and private institutions around the world. Our portfolio reflects a wide range use cases for customers ranging from governments to corporations to academia to non-profits.
What are the advantages of Clarity's air monitoring solution compared to others?
Cost-effective: Our fixed service pricing was developed to provide a turn-key monitoring solution with the highest quality data at the lowest possible cost of ownership. This model has worked well for our customers (especially governments) who find that unexpected maintenance costs and requirements of other solutions result in significantly higher project costs than initially budgeted.
Robust and reliable: The monitors are FCC/CE certified, weatherproof, and power (external or solar)/communications (cellular or Wi-Fi) options accommodate site-specific requirements according to the customer’s needs, not the other way around.
Ease of deployment and low maintenance: The small form factor and ease of deployment (set it up in under 10 minutes) of our monitors allow customers to cover more measurement points at higher time resolutions with more confidence. The solar powered Node-S allows for use in areas previously difficult to access and areas with power stability issues.
Is Clarity's technology validated? Can we trust low-cost sensors?
We work with air quality regulatory and research agencies to validate our technology. Low-cost sensors are an affordable way to complement regulatory monitoring sites and increase data resolution when supported by rigorous quality assurance and calibration processes. We work with dozens of air districts and environmental agencies all over the world to ensure our data accuracy, precision, and reliability. Read some of our third party evaluation reports below:
How can I access data? What’s the difference between Clarity’s SmartCity web app and OpenMap?
SmartCity Web App (smartcity.clarity.io) is Clarity’s data visualization and download tool. Users log in with their unique account credentials to view, plot, and download current and historical raw and calibrated data.
We launched Clarity OpenMap (openmap.clarity.io), our public repository of select Clarity devices around the world, in response to the need for localized, real-time air quality data during the Northern California wildfires in October 2017. Since then, we’ve integrated OpenMap into our product line as our open data platform for community data sharing.
What is Smart Calibration?
Smart Calibration is Clarity’s “white-boxed” quality assurance and control process that allows us to eliminate the high operational and deployment costs of a traditional sensor calibration process with remotely calibrated data streams in real-time. In the past, all devices would need to be co-located with the reference prior to deployment in the field. Additionally, all these devices would need to be recalibrated against the reference monitor periodically.
Clarity’s Smart Calibration simplified this process. Due to the low device-to-device variation of Clarity’s factory-calibrated devices, only a single device is required to be co-located with reference equipment for the duration of the project while the remaining sensors are concurrently deployed in the field. Both raw and calibrated data (when available) are provided to our customers.
