Local officials installed climate sensors in 100 council homes for the pilot. The sensors gather real-time data on temperature, humidity, and other environmental metrics. Participating tenants receive text messages when sensors detect the early signs of dampness and condensation. This system ensures quick repairs necessary to prevent long-term health problems. West Lothian Council will use pilot data when budgeting council home upgrades in the future.
