Incorporating a professional-grade vertical seismometer called a geophone, the fully assembled RS1D seismograph is incredibly sensitive. It can detect powerful earthquakes originating on the other side of the planet, and all magnitudes of seismic activity in your local region that cause a vertical movement of the ground. All sorts of ground motion can be monitored including: traffic, fracking, explosions, eruptions, avalanches, landslides, earthquakes and more!

The RS1D is the perfect device for hobbyists, makers(DIY) and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts that want to start learning more about seismic activities and ground motion with their very own high quality seismograph. It is a fantastic and engaging tool for educational facilities teaching STEM in a variety of subjects including geology, seismology, geophysics, computer science and technology.

  1. JEFF LAWTON (verified owner)

    Great little device. It showed up in one week and was very easy to install after following set up instructions. We had an ID glitch that required replacement. The staff responded quickly and resolved the issue. Excellent, quick support response. If you are a geek, this seismograph is for you!!

  2. Philippe Danré

    Great instrument !
    I use it to monitor earthquake activity on Mount Etna (Sicily, Italy). With students, we deployed a few of them in local schools (and we intend to install a few more this summer). The staff at Raspberry Shake is awesome, we recieved the devices quickly, the instruments are easy to understand and to use ! The installation is fast, the setup of the device as well. There is no issue with the Internet connection. Having the data online really helps sharing science with everyone ! I would recommend this for citizen science projects !
