17 multi-functional environmental sensors

17 multi-functional environmental sensors
Environmental sensors are getting smarter with more and more integrated functions, for both indoor and outdoor uses. They can be used for indoor air quality monitoring, healthcare, or for outdoor weather forecast and garden consulting.
Environmental sensors are getting smarter with more and more integrated functions, for both indoor and outdoor uses. They can be used for indoor air quality monitoring, healthcare, or for outdoor weather forecast and garden consulting. We collect 17 multi-functional environmental sensors on our September issue, and showcase the smart gadgets here for you to take a look first.
