Conserv has designed tools for you, based on thousands of conversations with the people actually taking care of collections.

Self-service setup of Conserv’s wireless sensors is easy, all you need is a cellular connection. Plug in your monitoring equipment and it just works. With Conserv, you don’t need IT or facilities people for setup or maintenance. Our alternative wireless technology, LoRaWAN, also lets you deploy environmental monitoring sensors in challenging locations without WiFi or internet connectivity. Conserv saves time too! An average customer eliminates 100% of time-consuming manual data collection, getting back many hours to spend on higher value activities.
Conserv’ software makes it easy to analyze and share environmental information. The software includes out of the box preservation analytics based on temperature, relative humidity, light and UV readings, providing real insight into your collection environment. You can invite unlimited free users into a software account, where everyone can view data, analytics and observations. The whole team can see environmental and pest data from different locations, conveniently accessed in one place, anytime. Conserv’s software also generates reports for easy sharing with colleagues, partners and lenders.
Almost 200 museums, libraries, archives and historic properties are now monitoring their collection environments with Conserv. 2,400 users have made a Conserv account, where they have collectively created 2500 unique locations, 7000 spaces, and 20,000 observations. Our system collects about 5500 readings every hour, almost 4 million readings a month! We see each of these users as a partner, and value their voices. As Nancie Ravenel, Objects Conservator at The Shelburne Museum explains, ““You are constantly getting in touch with us about what you’re working on, and what I think about it. So much of this work is about listening—and you do that well.” Join the hundreds of cultural heritage collections using Conserv and manage your collection environment with confidence.
