New York wireless monitoring company ProSentry is using Senet’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for private LoRaWan deployments and smart building sensor management.

New Hampshire-based Senet provides cloud-based software and services platforms that enable global connectivity and on-demand network build-outs for the IoT. ProSentry provides all-in-one wireless monitoring for residential and commercial properties.

Senet’s PaaS lets providers such as ProSentry deploy LoRaWan gateways exclusive to their customers’ environments while leveraging the benefits of Senet’s cloud-based managed network services and radio access network (RAN) tools to provision, monitor and manage gateways dedicated to their environments, ensuring the delivery of a carrier-grade service for building monitoring.

“Whether installing a new system or retrofitting a building, a small number of low-cost LoRaWan gateways can easily deliver connectivity for an entire building and provide the foundation for holistic building monitoring,” said John Rusk, president of ProSentry. “Reliable network connectivity is critical to the delivery of our services and Senet’s PaaS and RAN tools ensure we are able to deploy, manage and monitor our network infrastructure and sensor deployments, bringing innovation and ease to better building monitoring.”

Providing a flexible and cost-effective alternative to legacy proprietary offerings, ProSentry’s all-in-one platform provides water and gas leak detection and mechanical and environmental monitoring using standards-based LoRaWan sensors. Real-time operational insights and instant alerts are accessible any time, from any mobile device via live operator call, text, email and in-app notifications, helping stakeholders make informed decisions and reduce response times to problems before they escalate.

With capabilities being added regularly, the ProSentry building monitoring platform supports various wirelessly connected in-building sensors for water leaks, natural gas leaks, boiler temperature, exhaust fans, temperature, humidity, elevator motion, roof and terrace drain, sump pit water levels, trash container levels, water tank levels, mouse traps, door and window ajar, automatic and remote water shutoff valve, and, coming soon, smoking and vaping detection and water metering.

Capable of supporting one building or a complete real-estate portfolio, the ProSentry platform aims to reduce insurance premiums and repair costs, and provide proactive risk mitigation, time savings and improved tenant satisfaction.

“Network connectivity plays a crucial role in smart buildings, and standards-based LoRaWans and sensors are revolutionising the way building owners can serve their occupants and stakeholders,” said Bruce Chatterley, CEO of Senet. “With numerous sensors supported and integration with Senet’s cloud managed network platform, ProSentry is able to support virtually any smart building use case making full-scale building, multi-dwelling unit and campus deployments more accessible than ever before.”
