Safecast Environmental Monitoring For Home and Research

Join Our Global Family of Environmental Data Stewards

Join thousands of people around the world who are collecting and sharing environmental data at home and in the field using Safecast environmental monitoring devices.

The more people that collect open and publicly accessible environmental data, the more all of us will be informed about public health risks that impact individuals, families and communities.

Safecast devices are affordable, easy-to-use and are rugged enough to handle extreme outdoor conditions.

We hope you'll join our global family of environmental data stewards!

About Safecast

Safecast is an international volunteer driven non-profit organization whose goal is to create useful, accessible, and granular environmental data for public information and research.

Safecast maintains the largest open dataset of background radiation measurements ever collected - over 65 million readings to date and growing daily. All of the data collected is available through an open, free and public map of all submitted radiation and air data readings that can be accessed via browser or smartphone.

Safecast has been investigating air quality measuring since 2012. Safecast launched their Air Quality Monitoring Beta program in 2016 and will be soon deploying more devices in cities around the world. Learn more.

KitHub distributes the Safecast Environmental Monitoring devices including the bGeigie nano geiger counter kit and the Safecast Air Quality Monitoring kit. Learn more about each device below.

Safecast Customers

The Safecast environmental monitoring community spans the globe. Community members have collected radiation data on every single continent and shared it to create the largest, open, and independent radiation data set. With over 65 million data points collected, it is larger than all of the world governments' data sets combined. Safecast is now doing the same with air quality data. Stay tuned for a deployment in your city.
