An application to help clubs and bars track the noise levels outside of their establishment


Cheap sensors are used to monitor noise levels outside of clubs or bars to provide instant feedback to club owners or bouncers. The City of Zurich can use the data to enforce noise limits if the levels are above a given threshold for longer periods. The silencr app would be used on a smartphone, where the user sees the recent noise levels and can decide on actions to take.

Nightlife noise

Nightlife and its noise are highly contentious topics in our city. With civic tech and LoRaWAN we could gather and publish open data to allow to objectively quantify noise levels in nightlife areas.
