The 100 Homes study
A vital part SPHERE's research was to test our system of sensors in real homes. To do this we asked people across Bristol and Bath if they'd like to take part in this research. The response was fantastic, and many participants lived with the technology platform for a whole year, providing valuable feedback to the research team.
