Product Health helps make powered products work better and last longer by monitoring how well they are working and how they are being used. Sensors designed by us and our partners go into the battery box of off-grid solar systems in Sub-Saharan Africa, and into other powered devices, to understand how the system or device is doing, to optimise the performance and to provide power controls.

About Product Health

Product Health helps make powered products work better and last longer by monitoring how well they are working and how they are being used. And it helps make them more affordable for people by providing power controls to support pay-as-you-go, rental and other types of ongoing payments.

Sensors designed by us and our partners go into the battery box of off-grid solar systems and into other powered devices to understand how the system or device is doing, to optimise the performance and to provide power control. The data, which we analyse, is sent to a web service for distributors and owners of systems and devices to act on and to send communications to end-users to inform usage.

Product Health can be retrofitted to existing solar systems or embedded into new systems during manufacturing. Current customers include providers of solar home systems for home and business use and an NGO implementing off-grid solar power.
