AlgaeTracker

Monitor and Protect Your Waterway

AlgaeTracker is a revolutionary Early Warning System for Harmful Algae Blooms (HABs) and water pollutants

THE PROBLEM

Algae Blooms cause $14 B per year in damages.

Current sensors cannot predict outbreaks.

Harmful Algae Blooms have poisoned city water supplies, devastated fishing, caused real estate values to plummet, and ruined our recreational areas. Controlling blooms depends on early warning and monitoring systems. 

 

But, current sensors cannot scale to provide meaningful data about a water area. They are expensive and difficult to deploy. Notably:

  • Standard sensors require several technical personnel a week to deploy

  • Weighing several hundred pounds, boats and specialized training are required

  • Extremely high costs make multiple buoys prohibitive 

 

OUR SOLUTION

Meet AlgaeTracker:

A fast, simple way to monitor and protect your waterways

 

Cost of

HABs

annually 

Animal deaths linked to HABs since 2010

Human deaths from a single water contamination event

Low-cost, large-scale data collection to protect waterways

75 x Lower Entry Cost

The Tracker is priced to be deployable regardless of budget. Using new hardware and software advancements, we’re able to provide the Tracker at a low entry cost. Then you pay as you need the service, with an affordable monthly subscription.

Install in 1 Hour

By combining all the required hardware and software into a single lightweight streamlined unit, the AlgaeTracker can be deployed in an hour by just about anyone. It weighs only 10 pounds. Just place it in your waterway, clip it to a dock or anchor, and it starts sending data to your web dashboard using solar power.

Large-Scale Data & Actionable Insights

The Trackers collect data every 15 minutes 24 hours a day, notifying you when important events occur. The data is processed in our evolving analytics engine, honing in on more accurate data and prediction over time.

Simple dashboard. Powerful analytics.

Key Measurements:

  • Green algae

  • Blue-green algae (cyanobacteria)

  • Turbidity

  • Temperature and more

Our dashboard tracks GPS coordinates so you always know where your device is.

Plus, the dashboard shows a real-time map of all your trackers to get a 24/7 lens into all your water assets in one central location.

How It Works:

1

Drop the lightweight sensor buoy into the water. It immediately starts sending 7 key readings to the cloud every 15 minutes.

2

Our dashboard streams all the data live, displays rich graphs, and sends you customized notifications.

3

Bioanalysis and analytics in the cloud process the data, honing in on predictive models over time.

APPLICATIONS

An IoT solution for any waterway

Water Utilities

There’s no more essential resource than clean drinking water. Toxins and taste and odor compounds from algae can be extremely expensive to deal with, requiring large doses of remediation agents. AlgaeTrackers deployed around your reservoirs enable you to intervene sooner, reducing cell counts for your applications and reducing operational expenses.

Recreation Areas

Algal blooms can appear surprisingly fast, and recreational areas can become dangerously polluted, risking public health and causing fish kills. AlgaeTrackers dramatically reduce your time to intervention, allowing you to either prevent large outbreaks, and avoid area closures, or to ensure timely and safe closure if necessary.

HOAs and lake associations

You love boating, sailing, paddling, and skiing, but every year you're at the mercy of those pesky green scum blooms. Once a dense algae bloom gets entrenched, it can be hard -and expensive- to get rid of. By setting up AlgaeTrackers at key locations, you can engage the help of aquatic control specialists early enough that the algae doesn't take over.
