The accelerated change in the functioning of the biosphere and the technological revolution create the need and the tools for making decisions about how to care for the planet and human society. Southwestern Amazonia suffers the impacts of a global process - biomass burning and the generation of smoke - for 3-5 months per year. Via inexpensive sensors connected to the Internet of Things (IoT), it was possible to place four sensors in the region and in less than a year collect more than 420,000 observations in real time. During the Amazonian wet season of 2017-2018, the concentrations were low, below the limit recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), 10 μgm-3. As of June 2018, the values have risen to exceed frequently the WHO daily limit of 25 μgm-3 in Rio Branco, Acre, Brazil and Puerto Maldonado, Madre de Dios, Peru until October 2018.
