At Heat Seek we believe in empowering others to solve meaningful problems. We do that by helping tenants whose landlords deny them access to adequate heat in the winter. Heat Seek uses web-connected temperature sensors to monitor low-income apartments for heating code violations, then generate graphs and reports that city agencies and tenants rights groups can use to make change.
