There are two variations of senseBox; senseBox:home and senseBox:edu.

senseBox:home contains less devices, therefore it is easier to build manually and set up in your home, in order to measure unique environmental phenomena. It can also be connected to your WiFi or LAN port. The user obtains the individual source code after their registration to openSenseMap. Following registration, users can view continuous, location based measurements collected from sensors, such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, brightness, UV-light and noise on the openSenseMap.

The senseBox:edu was specifically developed to be applied in school classrooms or by junior scientists at home. The project focus is on learning the basics of programming and electronics, and is related to the collection of environmental data.

The senseBox setup of components is open under the CERN Open Hardware License 1.2. The source code of senseBox:home is open under the LGPL 3.0 License. The instructions and documentation are Open Educational Resources (OER) under the Creative Commons License CC BY SA 4.0.
