Hi! Welcome to Herelab.

We build things . . .
to connect companies, communities and people.


we deploy networks . . .


and we teach people how.

What we do

We design and deploy sensing tools for communities, organizations and businesses — and we teach people how. Our kits, the networks we deploy and the workshops we run help people know more about and better measure and manage the world around them.

Soil, Field and Farm Innovation

Humidity, temperature, moisture, pH and other sensors provide real-time information on growing conditions and can help farmers automate information, irrigation and greenhouse climate management.

Forest & Land Environments

Light, temperature, humidity and moisture are (some of the) keys to understanding the impact of local/global climate variation. Real-time information helps people plan and fund initiatives that work.

Aquatic Environment

Real-time pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity and temperature (and other) sensors are cost-effective ways to know if water is good for fin fish, shellfish and plants. Important for farmers, communities (& fish).

Built and Urban Environments

Building conditions matter, as do traffic flow, trash accumulation and water run-off. Connected sensors enable people respond to built environment conditions, as they happen.

It's like Legos!

This is great work. Kudos to you and your team on this!

I bought 500,000 seed oysters early because of your data.

Modular Sensor Kits

We think of tech as tools. With our modular ENV Board you can easily create sensors for water, soil, air and built environments. We’ll even provide starter code to get you up and running.

Sensors can connect us to Life!

Workshop Case Studies

HereLab is all about applied learning, for anyone at any age. And, learning happens best with real-world challenges. These case studies are demonstrated proof.
