Why UVindeSir?

UV Index is an international standardized numerical value, which indicates the intensity of the UV radiation affecting human skin that reaches the surface of the earth. SPF and PA helps indicate and estimate the time required to reach the maximum amount of UV to which you should be exposed in any specific weather condition.

Knowledge and style of UVindeSir

With UVindeSir, you can choose what kind of SPF to use based on the measurement. City-wide UV numbers are usually available every day, but they can be quite broad and unspecific. In addition, that will (of course) tell you nothing about the UVI in your position or other places you visit. For some, the UVindeSir and associated app will be the best thing since sliced bread (or the introduction of iPhone – your choice).

Tips will tell you how to do
You can measure the UV radiation from the sun and temperature when and where you like. The UV Index can vary widely depending on the following factors: time of year or season, time of day, weather conditions, surfaces, altitude, and regions of the world. Note that the real-time value measured probably differs from the regular renewed value from a forecasting service. This is caused by the sun’s changing position, clouds, altitude, season, and other factors. UV Index and temperature are changing all the time and you can use UVindeSir to track them. It is helpful for you to make decision and limit your exposure to these harmful UV rays.

Thank you!
We want to share it with all of you.


How to use

With a four pole audio jack enclosed, UVindeSir integrates power extraction, signal processing, and UV Index sensor inside. Simply plug UVindeSir into your iPhone’s audio jack, start the app to allow UVindeSir to gain energy from your iPhone. No external power is required. No network connection is required. The ultra-low power consumption microprocessor inside calculates UV Index and temperature, and then transmits the value into the iPhone via our specific communication protocol. It can even run in the background where you can even set alarms to remind yourself to change your sunscreen based off of the UV Index.

What kind of sunscreen should I choose? When should I replenish my sunscreen? What is the temperature right now? How about my sun glasses, hat, clothing?

We help you understand ultraviolet and this makes your life easier.

With UVindeSir you will know what you want in the simplest way!

It is strongly recommended that you re-measure the UV Index at least every 60 minutes when necessary.

Why we need you?

UVindeSir is small.

We are hardware developers and we have done as much work as possible to reduce the size and power consumption to make it beautiful. We’ve redesigned at least five kinds of prototypes to meet our final goal –beautiful, tiny, and easy to use. Building prototypes and doing a small production run, is very costly for independent engineers and designers like us. We have to build molds, buy several components and pay for the assembly. Therefore, we are asking for support in bringing this device to the hands of the general public.

With your help, we  can make the size of UVindeSir smaller!
