The UV Scale

Short for Ultraviolet, UV is a type of radiation that is primarily produced by the sun. The UV Index level is the measurement of the strength of the sun’s UV rays, and helps identify risks associated with different levels of UV exposure. UV Index can be very different from one location to the next, being affected by a number of factors including time of day, cloud cover, altitude, and more. By knowing and monitoring UV in your location, you can take better precautions to protect your health and Plan Your Day with ConfidenceTM.

The Light Intensity Scale

Light Intensity is a measure of the illuminance, or intensity, of sunlight. By monitoring and understanding measured daylight hours, you can improve your garden and lawn growth and vitality while planning your outdoor activities.
