Changes can happen in the blink of an eye, yet for many organizations, it could be months or more before a change is observed. A quick response time is essential for protecting the places that matter most. While satellite data offers a frequent snapshot of ground conditions, the sheer volume of information makes it impossible to review every single scene as it’s captured. 

What you need is an automated monitoring assistant to sift through and analyze all the new data as soon as it becomes available. We’ve got you covered and are proud to introduce Lens Lookout! 

Harnessing state-of-the-art remote sensing technology and computing power, Lens Lookout is a revolutionary new way to continually survey your land and identify changes based on your precise criteria.

Select your dataset, enter a threshold value based on your precise criteria, and sit back. Lens Lookout will process new data as it comes in and alert you when a threshold is crossed.

How it works:

  1. Create a custom Lookout policy based on the data and thresholds relevant to your properties. New datasets can be added any time right from the Lens Library
  2. Lens will automatically start analyzing all incoming data as soon as it becomes available so you can rest easy.
  3. As soon as a change is detected, we’ll send you an email and you’ll see a notification in Lens to review the data yourself. Here, you can review the change and swiftly determine how to respond to the change, such as by ordering the latest commercial imagery or planning a site visit.
"Efficiency is at the heart of Lens. Our goal is to enable users to focus their efforts where they're needed most. It's not just about sending alerts; it's about providing peace of mind." - Abby Smith, Head of Product for Lens.
