South Tyneside-based Envirowatch is hoping to boost growth in the global market with the development of new Internet of Things (IOT) technology.
The company, which in 2011 pioneered the E-MOTE device – an effective way of monitoring air quality and noise pollution, is looking to the future with the launch of its new real-time environmental monitoring device, the MultiMOTE.
The business has ambitions to become market leaders with the MultiMOTE and establish new national and international partnerships.
The new equipment monitors a range of environmental parameters including air pollution, noise pollution and water levels and transmits data using the latest communication protocols.
Peter Neasham, director of Envirowatch, said: “We are committed to providing our clients with the tools they need to fully understand the environment in which we live and identify the source of pollutants. Our devices provide them with the knowledge they need to tackle environmental concerns at a local and global level.
“We feel passionately about the effect poor air quality, water levels and noise pollution pose to communities and the environment. We believe our new multipurpose board could become one of the world’s leading products in the environmental monitoring market.
“The market for connected IoT devices is forecast to skyrocket in the next five to 10 years. With an increasing demand to tackle pollution, our devices enable clients to have the real-time knowledge they need in order to implement meaningful and impactful change.”
Envirowatch is conscious of its own environmental responsibilities and design its devices to be small, unobtrusive and make use of solar power wherever possible.
The company moved into One Trinity Green, in South Shields, in 2012 after winning a competition which saw them receive one year’s free accommodation, a £5000 grant and Invest South Tyneside professional business support.
