'iBench' Solar Seating

A hi-tech alternative to regular street benches, the iBench smart solar bench not only features an eye catching, yet minimalist and timeless design, but incorporates USB and Qi phone charging outlets, ambient lighting, sensors and Wi-Fi connectivity. 

All benches are constructed of stainless steel for maximum outdoor durability.

Features

iBench is equipped with an array of sensors to gather and store data on temperature, humidity, particulate matter, visitor activity and WiFi usage. It also incorporates software to monitor the 'health' of the system at all times including solar power production, power usage and battery voltage.

All the recorded and stored data can be accessed from a web-based dashboard at any time, in any location.

iBench can normally function up to 5 days without direct sun exposure.
In summer, the battery can charge within 1 day, in winter it can be considerably longer.
In bad weather, the bench will automatically power off.
