The adventure began with the RS1D. The first of its kind personal seismograph and our original Raspberry Shake. Combining a professional-grade vertical seismometer (called a geophone) digitizer, hyper-damper and computer, it is an all-in-one highly portable solution for monitoring earthquakes and all types of ground motion activity.
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 from both man-made and natural activity including: traffic, fracking, explosions, eruptions, avalanches, landslides, earthquakes and more!
Our entry-level model, the RS1D is the most affordable electronic seismograph on the market. It not only incorporates professional hardware but also gives users access to a comprehensive and advanced ecosystem of in-house services and support. It is becoming increasingly popular as an educational tool for teaching STEM to all ages, K-12’s, University and beyond, with multiple programs using it worldwide.
All Raspberry Shake models are highly compatible, easily integrated into existing networks, and can be deployed rapidly. Find out what the experts are saying from multiple peer-reviewed articles about Raspberry Shakes.

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!!

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 !
