Our priority is to ensure that we make monitoring and controlling your environmental conditions as easy as possible – so that you can spend your time doing what you do best – managing your collection. We work with small independent museums to national institutions and because we focus on monitoring and control for collections this has given us a thorough understanding of your needs.

This year we are partnering with Testo Ltd to bring you their 160 WiFi data logger range. A system specifically designed for the heritage sector!
