Lightning Detection & Proximity Alerting

nz lightning

Lightning is one of the most dangerous weather hazards. It can severely harm or take the lives of workers and has the potential to disrupt commercial operations through damage to infrastructure, fire and ignition risks. With access to MetService lightning services, you will have the confidence to plan around the threat of lightning to maximise production, mitigate damage and increase personnel safety.


The MetService Group has a suite of lightning detection and proximity alerting services.

The suite is designed to help customers mitigate the risks that strikes pose to distributed teams and crews in-the-field, and to their assets and operations. Our services include real-time lightning observations; site-specific, user-defined proximity alerting; and cease work, all-clear, and safe-to-return messaging.

The lightning services may be configured as a standalone function, or integrated with other MetService weather services.
