Sensly is a smart gas monitoring device


Sensly not only monitors pollution levels, but helps keep your home and workplace safe. 


Created by UK-based startup Altitude Tech, Sensly is a portable pollution sensor capable of detecting and collecting information on various harmful gases present in your environment. This data is then fed directly to your smartphone for real-time updates.

Sensly uses a series of industrial sensors to ensure accurate readings, and can be powered one of two ways: either via microUSB or through battery. Being cognizant of these gas levels allows you to take action and bring the pollution levels down. For instance, should the unit detect a carbon monoxide leak in your house, it will immediately alert you over your smartphone, prompting you to take the necessary precautions.

Aside from CO, others things that Sensly can recognize include benzene, formaldehyde, nitrogen dixodie, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, sulphur oxide, ammonia, and soon particulate matter like secondhand smoke and pollen. If the team is able to successfully meet its stretch goal, it will even be able to sense radiation.

To get started, all you need to do is connect your Sensly to the Internet and watch the data stream to your device. With intelligent alerts, your Sensly will send you a notification when spikes in gases are discovered inside your home, workplace or just about anywhere else, and provide you with reports on how your environment has changed over time. Using its accompanying mobile app and web interface, you can even share your readings with others.

And that’s not all. Designed with the Maker crowd in mind, its creators have also developed a Raspberry Pi HAT for those looking to build and customize their own version of Sensly and begin conducting experiments with their gadget.

Interested? Head over to its official Kickstarter campaign, where the Altitude Tech team is currently seeking $15,699. Delivery is set for August 2016.
