Member Spotlight

Cameron Munro
APHA Member since 2018

Cameron Munro has built up his own bespoke hardware and software to build up a dataset on housing performance.  He is interested in deploying the sensors across a selection of dwellings – both conventional and Passive Houses – to build an evidence base in an Australian context.  The sensors are offered at hardware cost-price, and further information is available here.
