Sentri Brings Simple, Powerful Monitoring to Every Home

TAIPEI, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2015) - Sentri, an all-in-one monitoring solution designed to make every home safer and smarter, demonstrated its flagship product earlier this month at Computex Taipei as a valued alliance partner of the Acer Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC™) ecosystem.

Sentri empowers any home to become safer and smarter with an affordable all-in-one solution that is simple, powerful, and beautiful. Unlike traditional home security and automation solutions, which typically involve complex and costly installation processes and require ongoing monthly contracts, Sentri requires no professional installation or monthly service fees.

"When we looked at the smart home market, we saw products that were often too limited, too complicated, and lacked the style to complement a home, leading us to create Sentri, which brings everything you need into one powerful monitoring solution that is incredibly easy to use," explained Yen Tung, Sentri's CEO and co-founder.

At Computex, Sentri was part of the Taiwan Cloud Pavilion expo, highlighting different companies using cloud technologies to drive new innovations and experiences for consumers and enterprises. This initiative was led by the Industrial Development Bureau at the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Taiwan, and included key partners like Acer's BYOC Alliance.

Sentri in the Smart Home

The San Francisco and Taipei based company is part of a bigger trend toward bringing products designed for smarter lifestyles to consumers, and the smart home market is expected to hit over $61 billion in sales this year, according to the latest reports from Business Insider. "We think that everyone deserves a peace of mind, which has been a key cornerstone in driving our development in making Sentri as simple and accessible as possible" said Wendy Qi, Sentri's co-founder.

Since Sentri's founding last year, the company has raised nearly $400,000 from over 1,200 backers globally during its Kickstarter campaign, double its initial goal of $200,000, placing it in the top 1% of all Kickstarter campaigns. As Sentri continues to work towards bringing simple, powerful monitoring to every home, it has partnered with organizations like Microsoft Ventures and Orange Fab to work towards a shared vision of making every home safer and smarter.

Sentri's Key Features Include:

  • An HD video camera with night vision to provide live-time video streaming
  • Sensors to track a home's environment (temperature, humidity, weather, and air quality)
  • Instant alerts triggered by unexpected motion or change in a home's environment
  • A smart home hub to connect to and control other popular monitoring solutions like Nest Thermostat, Belkin WeMo Smart Switch and Philip Hue
  • A 10.1" touchscreen designed for greater ease of use and customizable themes
  • Plug and play installation and a simple set-up process that takes minutes

Availability
