Conserv Wireless Environmental Monitoring

Saves you time & saves your collection

We’d like to introduce you to Conserv, a next-gen environmental monitoring system developed by conservators specifically for preservation.

Why Conserv? Because environmental monitoring is critical for preservation, but it can also be time-consuming and complicated. We’ve partnered exclusively with Conserv because their subscription-based, wireless system makes it simple, saving you time and saving your collection.

The Conserv system is designed to make your job easier, allowing you to monitor the environment of your collections in any part of your institution from one place, even while working remotely. We know you’re going to love it.

Less steps, more time to get things done

The Conserv system was developed by conservators to give you the environmental data you need, quickly, easily and accurately. Monitor data and get alerts in real time, wherever you are, without any manual collection.

Traditional, non-wireless monitors require an average of 45 minutes a month per sensor to manually collect and organize data. If you have five sensors, that’s nearly four hours a month. Automated data collection can save even a small museum almost $1,000 a year. Your time = money.

And that’s not even counting the time you’ll save replacing batteries—Conserv does it for you every 3 years, which is all these sensors need—and the time you’ll save analyzing and reporting on your data with intuitive software that lets you work from anywhere.

A Conserv subscription includes everything you need to make environmental monitoring simple:

Unparalleled setup simplicity

Simply plug the gateway into a wall outlet, remove the tabs from your sensors and instantly start collecting data.

If your building has cellular coverage, the Conserv Gateway has a built-in SIM card that automatically connects via cellular data (at no additional cost). Using cellular data keeps the system separate from your organization’s network—no tricky IT setup or policies to navigate. And since the gateway has a 4-hour built-in battery backup, you can keep monitoring even during power and internet outages using cellular data. If your cell coverage isn’t great, no problem; the gateway also offers an Ethernet connection.

It’s not Wi-Fi, it’s not Bluetooth—it’s LoRaWAN

Conserv uses a Long-Range Wide Area Network to wirelessly connect your monitoring sensors to the gateway, where your data is uploaded to and accessible from the Conserv Cloud. LoRaWAN can transmit through walls and floors, even concrete, which means you can plan your sensor locations around your collection’s needs and not the range of your Wi-Fi router.

And unlike Wi-Fi devices, batteries in LoRaWAN devices can run for 4+ years. Conserv will send you brand new sensors that are freshly calibrated with new batteries every 3 years, so your days of replacing batteries are over. You send back the old sensors so Conserv can refurbish, recycle, and redeploy them!

Data that simply makes sense,
anywhere, anytime

Developed by conservators, Conserv’s environmental monitoring dashboard synthesizes and interprets data for you, making it actionable and easy to report. The cloud-based app lets your team access your data anywhere, no matter where they are or where your collection is.

Before signing up for Conserv you’ll have an in-depth consultation that assesses your institution, your collections, and the challenges your staff currently faces. When you subscribe, you’ll have a personalized onboarding with a conservator that takes into consideration your specific needs. You’ll also have the help of the Conserv Community, which includes conservators and preservation specialists from all over the world, where you can field questions related to preventive conservation and specific questions related to your data.
