The ability of the sensor to take continuous readings pre-set by the operator over a five day period enhances the gathered data sets, providing robust scientific data for all manner of applications. When coupled with the River Watch phone app, the data can be uploaded from the sensor via Bluetooth or Wi Fi. This data can then be sent to the WAI NZ map with its GPS geotag, positioning it on a waterway to provide data collection and dissemination.

WaiNZ was formed in 2012 when people from all over NZ became inspired to collaborate in efforts to monitor and report on freshwater pollution.The inspiration came from watching the documentary film River Dog (multi award winning NZ doco), a story of one man's struggle to save the river he lives by. You can view the trailer to River Dog here.
