Alerts, monitoring and more with the most advanced lightning-detection technology

Providing accurate real-time lightning data, LightningTracker helps you mitigate the impact of strikes by giving you the warnings you need to postpone or temporarily shut down operations.

High-quality Data for Advanced Lightning Tracking

With a high-density network of lightning sensors, the quality and accuracy of our data is second to none. We can locate even relatively weak lightning signals with our advanced detection technology.

Product highlights


Define your locations and alert settings however you wish. You can also choose to receive alerts by email or SMS, and set different recipients for different locations.


When lightning is detected at any of your chosen locations, the color of the location changes. A pop-up will also appear alerting you to the presence of lightning in your specified area, along with strike statistics, including the amplitude (strength), type (cloud-to-cloud) and polarity of the lightning activity. You can set an optional sound alert for a clear and immediate warning as well.


As lightning is usually preceded by or in the vicinity of precipitation, we have integrated an overlay weather radar that shows the location and intensity of the precipitation. This acts as a pre-emptive warning to help you identify risk.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Continuous improvements to our sophisticated weather solutions guarantee you technological innovation, data accuracy, expertise and reliability.
