Remote Monitoring Solutions for Outdoor Noise, Ground Vibrations, Dust, Weather, and Road Traffic
Keep a Close Watch on Your Compliance with Noise and Vibration Regulations, Wherever You Are
Managing noise, vibration, dust and air quality compliance simultaneously across multiple project sites can be simple and cost-effective. Our high performance measurement stations and web-based monitoring platform provide you with 24/7 actionable insights in environments where sound levels are constantly fluctuating throughout the day. Our monitoring stations are not simply sound measuring devices; they are rugged, compact, fully autonomous stations that collect many types of environmental data and continuously keep you informed through instant SMS notifications, automated daily reports, and a simple web interface where you can view, analyse and share all metrics in real-time, from wherever you are.
Your data is stored on our secured web server through a 4G/LTE network. At all times, your collected data can be accessed through an interactive web interface. To keep you continuously informed, automated daily reports and exceedance notifications are sent to you via email or text message. With the technical support of our acoustic engineers, we help you get the most out of your remote monitoring.
We do the noise control engineering while you focus on your core business.
Monitoring Web Platform™
Self-Service Web Application to Remotely Manage Your Monitoring Locations and Environmental Data Collection
Soft dB Monitoring Platform is a self-service web application that lets you manage your entire monitoring station ecosystem, view all recorded environmental data in real-time, and share insightful metrics with key project stakeholders.
Through a simple web interface, Soft dB Monitoring Platform removes complexity from remote monitoring operations, regardless of project type and how many unattended measurement stations across multiple project sites. It helps you take the guesswork out of your noise mitigation efforts, simplify compliance management, improve relationships with the community, and reduce environmental impact, all while staying focused on your core business.
Professional Grade Class 1 Noise Measurement Station for Unattended Outdoor Monitoring Applications
Noise Watch is a fully integrated solution for remote noise monitoring applications where regulatory compliance is paramount. Off-grid solar plus battery powered, Noise Watch stations provide true flexibility for both short and long term outdoor noise monitoring, regardless of project type and complexity.
With its high-performance microphone, Noise Watch station meets the highest measurement standards (IEC 61672-1/ANSI S1.4 Class 1) and delivers acoustic data you can trust. Built to last, it’ll continuously provide you with actionable insights straight from the area within which people could be affected by your project noise.
Unattended Monitoring Solution for Real-Time Noise Source
Localization and Mapping in Outdoor Project Sites
In large project sites, tracking and measuring sounds simultaneously coming from all directions is a great challenge. Noise Radar is a highly versatile monitoring solution that traces project noise back to specific sources, enabling you to target your mitigation efforts more effectively without having to spend hours investigating noisy elements in the field.
Using its 6 high precision microphones, Noise Radar measures noise reaching its surface from all directions. The acoustic data collected is overlaid in color-coded noise contours on an aerial view of your project site, providing you with an instant snapshot of noise source locations and strength throughout the day.
Need to Measure and Monitor More Than Noise and Vibration?
Soft dB monitoring solutions deliver a turnkey, integrated approach to tracking, measuring and analysing a wide array of environmental emissions in real-time. Our modular, fully autonomous environmental measurement stations enable you to simultaneously monitor sound levels, vibration levels, traffic trends, weather conditions, dust concentration, underwater acoustic data and more.
Thanks to built-in PTZ cameras, Soft dB environmental monitoring stations let you keep a close eye on the field, as if you were there. The captured images are broadcast live on our web-based monitoring platform so you can easily replay select sequences at any time, wherever you are.
The Soft dB environmental noise monitoring equipment deliver Class 1 precision sound level metrics. Our noise measurement stations allow for simultaneous recordings of:
- Leq, Lmax, Lmin, Lpeak, and SEL in A, C, and Z weightings
- 7 Percentiles (LN%) for selected weighting (A, C or Z)
- 31.5 Hz to 8 kHz Octave Band Spectrum
- 400 lines FFT Spectrum
The Soft dB environmental monitoring stations are equipped with 3-axis vibration sensors. These measurements are suitable for determining both human perception and building structure response.
Road Traffic Data
The environmental monitoring stations precisely monitor traffic patterns on roadways. The radar can track up to 10 moving vehicles simultaneously while measuring their speed, direction, size, as well as global road noise, thanks to the integration of speed sensor data to the sound level meter.
Soft dB environmental monitoring provides accurate measurements of particle concentration using a highly sensitive forward scatter laser nephelometer. Available data are TSP, PM10, PM2.5 or PM1.0.
Soft dB environmental monitoring stations are highly versatile and can be supplemented with additional sensors such as hydrophones for underwater noise measurements.
Soft dB environmental monitoring offers an integrated weather station measuring barometric pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction, and UV/solar radiation.
