Good preventive care starts with stable environments

Better environmental monitoring should be accessible to every art and cultural collection around the world. Historically a number of constraints have stood in the way.

  • "Monitoring isn't a good value." Monitoring solutions haven't been a great value for many collections, too expensive and not enough functionality.
  • "Monitoring solutions aren't conservation-focused." Monitoring solutions have been borrowed from other industries, and don't serve the needs of conservators.
  • "Monitoring is time-consuming." Most sensor solutions are "disconnected data loggers", which means someone has to manually collect the data one sensor at a time.

Conserv exists to deliver conservation-focused environmental monitoring at a great value that works for anyone taking care of a collection.

Get no questions asked replacements and re-calibration as part of your ongoing subscription service.

Modern technology that’s 100% focused on conservation

Go beyond 1990s technology with modern web software and a mobile app for Android and iOS.

You’ll never need to hassle with software on a CD-ROM or manual data loggers again.

Sync up with your collections management tool to integrate your conservation efforts with your collection data.


Combine our smart conservation software with wireless sensors and skyrocket productivity.

Wireless Without WiFi

There's a reason why you're not using wireless sensors today. It's because WiFi isn't a good option. Learn about what we're doing to deliver wireless without WiFi using LoRaWAN.

Conservation-Focused Measurement

Conservators care about more than just temperature and relative humidity. At Conserv we go further, measuring light levels, vibration, and air quality.

No Hassle Re-Calibration

We replace your sensors every 30 months so you don't have to worry about re-calibration. The new sensors you receive include our most up-to-date hardware ensuring that you always have cutting edge devices.

Real-Time Alerts

Looking in the rear view is a thing of the past. The Conserv solution provides real-time alerting through text, email, and push. You set different thresholds for each space depending on what's in the collection.

Unlimited Data, Unlimited Spaces, Unlimited Users

Work without limits. At Conserv we don't try to nickel and dime you on data limits. The free Conserv platform includes unlimited historical data, users, and spaces.

Collections Management Integrations

The most important data you have lives in your collection management system. We want you to bring that data into Conserv so you can develop a monitoring plan that aligns with your collection.

Sustainable Circular Design

Too many sensors end up in landfills. We've employed circular design principles to ensure that our products are sustainable, that they can be recycled and refurbished, and that no Conserv hardware ends up in a landfill.

Inexpensive Sensors, Simple Subscription Model

Our sensors cost $99 plus a simple monthly subscription to handle wireless monitoring, sensor re-calibration, software, and support. Our goal is to remove all of your environmental monitoring headaches.

Upload Data from Any Sensor Device

While we hope that our sensor hardware is an obvious choice for your collection, we understand that many collections will use other sensor devices. We've made it easy for you to import any data into our platform.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“I am excited about Conserv for the following reasons:

1. Current available monitors are very time consuming for my staff to download the data. Data retrieval currently consists of attaching a dock to each monitor and downloading onto a desktop computer. The Conserv solution uses low frequency signals to retrieve our data, which has not been possible with other products.

2. The monitors that we use have not been recyclable and must be discarded every two years. They also do not tell us when they are failing, because they simply quit recording! The Conserv solution fixes both issues.

3. I like that we can customize our units for certain galleries with more stringent requirements, such as monitoring light levels, vibrations and visitor counts, in addition to the standard temperature and RH level monitoring that we require.”

Objects Conservator

"As a collections manager it has been a joy learning about the innovative environmental monitoring solutions being offered by Conserv.

Their all-in approach to monitoring UV, relative humidity, temperature, and vibration – all within a small compact sensor – is amazing and provides remarkably accurate and real-time data.

Their easy to use interface is great for tracking history, for sending alerts, and provides us with a means to be proactive in our conservation approaches."

Jun Ebersole

Collections Manager

"Not only did Conserv create a system around our exact needs, they helped us anticipate the needs we may have in the future.

I personally find the small sensors and mobile interface extremely versatile and beneficial.

Their customer service is spectacular and their continued communication post implementation really sets them apart."

Nick LaCasse

Collections Manager

"I can't say enough about the Conserv data loggers! No more running around with flash drives, and getting those pesky error codes with our old data loggers. I love how I can check them online at anytime.

All the thinking is done for you with preset standards for preservation. The interface is very user friendly. I will be telling other collection managers about this superb product. Great job Conserv!"
