Stove Use Monitoring System (SUMS)

The Geocene SimpleSUM is our approach to a SUMS. To build it, we leveraged decades of experience with cookstove monitoring and evaluation. Streamline your cookstove monitoring and evaluation program in the field, in the office, and across the globe.

Quality data collection in the field starts with the Geocene SimpleSUM.

Most cookstove monitoring projects utilize generic loggers prone to data loss from overheating, dead batteries, and incorrect installation. Geocene SUMS are purpose-built to easily track cookstove adoption, even in the harshest environments.

Collect Better Data

Other loggers lack the ease-of-use, battery life, and storage capacity needed for cookstove monitoring projects. Geocene’s SimpleSUM can operate for over a year using easy-to-replace AAA batteries.

Simplify Data Analysis

Collect beautifully-organized data from Geocene SUMS using Bluetooth and the Geocene App. Once the app connects to the internet, your data will be synced, analyzed, and displayed on Geocene Analytics

Minimize In-Field Workload

Other loggers require laptops and special dongles. Data organization, storage, and analysis are not automated. With Geocene you can download the app, gather data, then sync and view processed data online.

Streamline data analysis with machine learning.

Geocene SUMS streamlines data analysis by removing the physical, network, and staff training challenges that cookstove monitoring projects face. Using a decade of experience in the field, we build Geocene SUMS from the ground up to make monitoring and evaluation accessible to anyone.

Reduce Errors With Automation

Misnaming, incomplete information, and other human errors can slow down or block analysis altogether. Geocene SUMS limits the opportunity for tagging and metadata errors.

Monitor Any Cookstove

With multiple probe designs, Geocene SUMS can monitor any kind of cookstove including LPG, three-stone fires, traditional, improved biomass, and electric cookstoves.

Real-Time Project Feedback

Track and fix errors faster and more effectively. Geocene SUMS lets your team improve the quality of the study and the effectiveness of the data collected as it is being collected.
