Recent updates … and NEW features coming!

One of the principles we’ve built Sentri around from the very start is that it’s always getting smarter — and doing so in a way that doesn’t require you to do a thing! Every couple weeks (or less some times ;)), Sentri gets a fresh new update that improves the experience (optimizing performance, fixing bugs) AND also adds some cool new functionality. What have we updated recently? Take a look below — and make sure your Sentri has all the latest and greatest:

Eco Mode and Military Time Coming to Your Sentri!


This week, we released two new features that many of our community members have been asking for: Eco Mode and the ability to switch between 24-hour and 12-hour time.

  • Eco Mode lets you turn off the Sentri screen (and save energy!) quickly and easily by:
    • Setting your own schedule — want the screen off every night? Schedule it between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. or any other time interval for some smart dimming!
    • Turn it on / off manually
    • The Sentri screen always dims after 30 minutes of inactivity when in ‘away’ mode
  • 23:00? 11:00? Your choice — choose how you would like your time displayed in Sentri’s signature display & look

All these updates go to your Sentri units over-the-air — meaning you don’t have to do a thing, no buttons to push, no links to click — just part of how Sentri is always getting smarter.

Have suggestions of your own? Let us know! These were features upgraded based directly on feedback from our community, and we’d love to include your voice.

New Features Coming to Your Sentri!


All your devices — straight from your Sentri. No phones required.

One of the exciting things about Sentri is that it’s always getting smarter. Today, we’re excited to announce the release of our latest update that will bring even more power to your Sentri to help protect what matters in making your home safer and smarter.

Look out for:

  • Trigger a siren on your Sentri device​
  • Video playback on Sentri itself
  • Device control on the Sentri touchscreen itself — Sentri works with Hue, Nest, and WeMo
  • Auto-rotating theme. Now you don’t have to choose between all the images we have for you. Set it to auto-rate to get a new background every time you look.
  • An improved motion detection algorithm

We’ll be rolling out this update starting today and all Sentris should be updated by the end of the week! Have an idea on a feature you’d like to see? Let us know! Many of our feature updates are developed in conjunction with our community.
