introducing Envosense – environmental sensor

The Envosense sensor continually monitors the environmental aspects of properties that are some of the biggest contributors to repairs and maintenance costs for housing providers. Data collected hourly shows changes in humidity and temperature, and can be indicative of dampness, poor ventilation and heating failures.

In addition, excessive heating is often associated with fuel arrears, and underheating may be as a result of poor insulation or a customer experiencing fuel poverty. In both cases extended periods of over or under heating is commonly linked to a need for increased levels of housing management and poorer outcomes for residents.
