A UV sensor is a scientific way to track your exact UV exposure — from sunlight and other sources — in real time. It takes the guesswork out of managing your UV exposure so you can stress less and live your life.
Shade is the world's first UV sensor designed specifically to help lupus warriors manage sunlight exposure.
Sensor + app = Shade
The compact, smartly designed Shade sensor attaches to your clothing with a magnetic clasp and measures UV exposure. It syncs with the simple, powerful Shade app on your phone and notifies you as you approach your daily UV limit.
Our sensor was designed at the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute in New York and packs the accuracy and precision of much more expensive equipment. It’s sensitive enough to pick up UV rays from light bulbs and stylish enough that it’s often mistaken for jewelry.
